Hi there! You can post down here instead if you like. And if you have any topic suggestions (pain points you are struggling with in your business, etc.) or if you want to get some live coaching from me on an upcoming podcast episode, please write your challenge below and I’ll consider you for an upcoming podcast.

It was an ‘aha!’ moment for me when I realized this is MY business and that I don’t have to deal with challenging and emotionally draining clients if I choose not to! In my experience, ideal clients care deeply for their pets and always want the best for them, which is why they look for and willingly pay for a professional pet sitter. Potential clients that focus mainly on rates and little on pet sitter qualifications raise a red flag. Thank you for the great coaching!
Would love to learn more about a well-written pet sitting contract and how / where to incorporate client payment (and what might happen if they don’t pay), also last minute cancellation / last minute schedule change policy and how / if it should be incorporated into a pet sitting contract.

If you come across a good source to introduce into the professional pet care world, please advise. Short-notice cancellation protection, medical records with shots (in the event of an ER situation), Vet info., payment due dates/times. I could attempt to draft a generic contract, but unfortunately I lack the time to research State and Federal law to be in compliance in contract.

Thanks for the topic suggestions, Linda! Yes, so many pet business owners (including myself back in the day) forget that they get to call the shots. Empowerment happens when this is remembered! Wishing you continued success in your pet sitting business, Linda. 🙂

Hello, this is so valuable and I especially heard you about being positive and how that affects a business. My question is what if I’m doing pet sitting/dog walking on my own. I only have about 6-10 consistent clients, but in no way is it enough for myself to live let alone hire help. Where would I go from here to get closer to there? ?

Glad you enjoyed this podcast segment and sorry it took me awhile to respond – I somehow missed seeing this comment from you.
I recommend that you attend this year’s no-cost Prosperous Pet Business Online Conference and especially be sure to see the segment that will be air called: How to Market Your Pet Business. You’ll find a lot of helpful suggestions in that speaker segment!
