You’ve asked for an employee handbook and I’ve listened!
I get it. You are a busy pet sitting business owner and haven’t had the time to create an employee handbook. Perhaps you’ve recently converted your ICs to employees. Perhaps you’ve needed a handbook for a very long time and it has gone to the bottom of your to do list because it’s such an ordeal to create one from scratch. Whatever the reason, you just know you need one.
Creating an employee handbook from scratch is a BEAST to create. I get it. (This one was a beast to create!)
Our handbook is the perfect ready-made template to insert your own business, city and state information and to offer it to your employees.
Unlike most employee handbooks, this one is geared specifically for pet sitters and dog walkers. It was created by a pet sitter and reviewed by an HR team and a lawyer.
Because each city and state differs in terms of employment law we recommend that with the purchase of any employee handbook or legal document that you have a local lawyer review it to see if there’s anything that your city or state might require.
This employee handbook contains 54 pages of policies and procedures as well as a lot of necessary information to help your employees do their job in the best possible way and with the least hassle for you. And it comes in Word doc format so it’s fully customizable. You can edit it to your heart’s content (though we predict you’ll be very happy with how thorough this handbook is!)

"I just purchased the pet sitting employee handbook and I am so happy with it. This would have cost me a fortune to detail all of this with my expensive employment lawyer. This is at least half the price of what working with my employment lawyer would cost!"

“I purchased the employee handbook and was very pleased with it.
Kristin stated it was thorough but I found myself saying many times, "Boy, I never thought about that!" If you don’t have an employee handbook, I recommend you purchase this one - why try to write one from scratch?"

"My pet sitting business guru is Kristin Morrison. I HIGHLY recommend all of her books and pet business products. Following her guidance changed my business and my life. Her book, "Six Figure Pet Sitting" has been my bible and has a whole chapter on how to hire staff. I’ve followed all her instructions and have had exponential success with hiring reliable, smart, attentive, and amazing staff members, several of whom have stayed working for my CPC for almost two and a half years and counting. I also recommend her "Business Hiring Kit: For Hiring Pet Sitting/Dog Walking Staff". The price is well worth the guidance. If anything, just start off by buying her "Six-Figure Pet Sitting" book. It’s a pet sitting business owner's GOLD."
