About This Class

Are you an animal lover who likes to travel? Does the idea of pet sitting in exchange for free accommodation and the opportunity to travel to new places sound like something you'd be interested in?

It took me two years to learn how to get selected for pet sits. However, I've recently enjoyed pet sitting in Paris and will be going to Frankfurt, Germany soon for another pet sit. I'm now turning down offers to pet sit due to scheduling conflicts.

In this class, I'll share all of my tips and tricks that I've learned as a pet sitter so that you can start pet sitting right away and won't need to wait two years, like I did.

You'll learn how to set up a strong pet sitter profile, build your references, and the right way to apply for a pet sit. I'll also share tips on what to do once you get selected for a pet sit so that you'll earn great reviews and have your pick of future pet sits.

This is really an amazing way to travel, domestically and/or internationally, while staying in a home, caring for sweet animals, and getting to make new friends.

As a bonus, I'll be happy to check out your pet sitting profile and offer suggestions to make it stronger.

Come enjoy this exciting world of pet sitting - just click "enroll" and I'll see you soon!
