Can You Really Make Money As A Pet Sitter?

cash-pileThis was the question I posed to the PetSittingOlogy community after reading plenty of articles online that included pet sitting as a way for kids, teens or adults looking to make money fast.

A sampling of articles claimed that anyone can turn to pet sitting for a quick buck.

Having spent plenty of time running my own pet sitting business, I wasn’t quite sure that pet sitting should be on the list of ways to make fast money.

Our Non-Scientific Poll

So to be sure, I created a poll to see what others thought. Here are the results of that poll:

make-money-poll

And no surprise, a staggering 88% of the people who responded chose “No, not everyone can make money as a pet sitter.”

To clarify, my wife and I – along with plenty of other pet sitters I know – do make a comfy living caring for animals. I just wouldn’t go so far as suggesting anyone can make a fast buck doing it.

And for the record, I’m quite sure that the majority (if not all) of the people who took the poll are, in fact, pet sitters themselves – which makes the poll that more accurate.

If you want to know if anyone can make money pet sitting, who better to ask than a bunch of working pet sitters, right?

Why Do You Think That Is?

So it now begs the question: What is it about the pet sitting profession that lends itself to “Hey, wanna make some quick, extra cash?  Become a pet sitter!?”

Why does ‘become a pet sitter’ fall into that category? I highly doubt the authors of most of these articles claiming that pet sitting is the way to go for quick cash are actually pet sitters themselves.
