    It’s been my experience that t-shirts really work. Especially when you go to the dog park with your clients. It is a good investment :)

    Happy to hear you’ve had success with this. For the price, it seems like you can’t go wrong.

    I also think it’s worth it to give a few out to friends or clients – people love t-shirts.

    Hi Joshua,

    Brilliant niche you’ve got here. I love it. Inspiring to see you writing well about something so useful and well-targeted. Though actually this t-shirt advice could be handy for all small business owners:)

    Just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to comment on my article, Getting Over the Blogger’s 6 Month Itch.

    I write most of my articles for myself but many of the things I’m struggling with are bothering other people too.

    I knew that there would be a lot of other bloggers like me who flop between giving it their all and being on the verge of giving it up!

    I’m happy to think that I may have helped give you the motivation to keep at it. Blogging can be a lonely business so it’s great to connect with some like-minded people.

    Please swing by my blog from time to time to let me know how it’s going. If you know anyone who might enjoy reading my articles I’d appreciate it if you tell them Get In the Hot Spot.

    Good luck with all your plans. I’ve checked out your blog and it’s looking good so far. Nice design, cool writing, smiley photo. Keep at it!

    Best wishes,

    Annabel

    i have to unfortunately disagree with this idea for safety reasons. we are many times hired to watch a client’s home as well as their pets while they are away on vacation. what better way to advertise that someone is away by having someone wearing a pet sitting tshirt with keys to their house. we work in the city, and this is a HUGE no-no.

    bad idea.

    Hey Neil,

    Thanks for your comment. There is a big ongoing debate between pet sitters whether or not “advertising” that an owner is not home really increases the chance of burglary.

    Law enforcement has suggested that it may actually deter since a person is visiting the home on a daily basis. IE. Car in the driveway, lights turned on and off, mail and newspapers brought in, drapes and curtains opened and closed.

    To me, for the argument to work, a potential burglar would have to actually see you getting out of your car, then be in a position to read what your shirt says.

    I know City life is different… (closer proximity) In either case, the article makes no mention of wearing a pet business branded shirt TO the visit. In fact, wearing the shirt while running errands and going about your day while not on visits will have a bigger impact.
