Sarah Burns shares another story with us “from the trenches.” She’s been a professional pet sitter since 2010, and recently brought on her husband (gasp!) to join her in this pursuit.
Let’s hear from Sarah how that’s been going…
My husband Dan started working for me, er, I mean, with me 8 weeks ago.
Watching him experience every aspect of this job first-hand has been the most enjoyable part. Over the past 8 years Dan was only hearing my stories from the trenches, including everything from the long days to the difficult clients.
He is now fully starting to realize what pet sitting really is (and what pet sitting really isn’t) and what being a professional pet business owner truly encompasses.
One major benefit from working alongside my husband has been the ability to see my work through fresh eyes again.
As I know you can relate, having been doing this for so long, I find most things very routine and there is not much that surprises me anymore. But hearing Dan recount his experiences allow me to look at things a little bit differently.
