Types of Pet Sitters:
- DAILY SITTER: Split shift between morning, afternoon, and evening visits. Sitters must be available for all 3 time frames. This does not mean you can work weekends only. Client can be gone for a week and you need to be available to pet sit for a week, possibility 2-3 times a day for that client while they are gone. We do not share jobs. Clients may request their visits to be approximately 20-60 minutes, 7 days a week.
- MID-DAY SITTER: Sitters must be available to walk large dogs (Monday through Friday for a minimum of 3 days per week during the middle of the day). Most visits are usually between 10am-3pm.
- OVERNIGHT SITTER: Clients request for the sitter to arrive in the evening and sleep at their home. Sitters may stay at a client’s home for 10-12 hours.
