Introduction

Welcome to the Pet Sitter Compendium! I’m Eric and have been pet sitting for 10 years. Whether you are a pet owner, looking for a sitter, or are thinking about making a living as a pet sitter, this blog is for you. I mostly work with dogs and am set up for dog walking, doggie day camp, or overnights in my home. I also have experience caring for cats and other pets in clients’ homes when they are away. Thank you for visiting!

About the Blog

Several of my goals have collided during this past decade, and now the world has another blog to enjoy! I’ve been writing as a hobby for some time and after surmounting an inordinate number of myths about small business management, and administering frequently asked questions (FAQs) about dogs and dog parks, I knew it was time to share the particulars.

A compendium is a collection of concise but detailed information about a particular subject. I’ll be posting answers to pet sitting FAQs, along with tips and tricks for dog owners, dog walkers, or anyone wishing to know more about small businesses, websites, or blogs. My pledge is to offer information with an optimal blend of vigilance, candor, and enthusiasm.

To be clear, I operated as a single member LLC, and did not grow beyond that. This is not a “six figure pet sitter” blog since that wasn’t the vision I had for my enterprise. I was however, successful in terms of client trust, satisfaction, and demand. Finally achieving a positive work/life balance became a first for me, which completely belied the grounding of a 20-year stint as an environmental engineer. So, without further ado, leave your fields to flower and please enjoy my loquacious, albeit functional musings.
