Having Trouble Hiring Pet Sitters for your Team? There is a New Approach that May Work for You.
It’s time to hire.
The typical approach is to put the word out for pet sitters to join your team – either as ICs (independent contractors) or employees.
You may find yourself doing any of the following:
- Placing an ad on Craigslist for potential applicants
- Targeting local colleges for students
- Finding housewives who want to make some extra money
- Getting the word out to Vets in your area
- Calling upon current clients who may make a good sitter
- Bringing on retirees
Regardless of your success in any of these areas, there comes a time when you may find yourself with higher turnover than you’d like, and you need to go back to the drawing board to replenish your staff.
This process can get very tiring very quickly, and you may long for the days when you were just a solo sitter doing everything on your own again!
What’s a pet sitting business owner who wants to grow to do?
Here’s A New Approach To The Hiring Dilemma
Meet pet sitter Anthony Mucci of Daily Dog Walkers serving the Fort Lauderdale area in Florida.
As you’ll hear in this teleseminar, Anthony began as a solo pet sitter, quickly grew, and almost accidentally (even reluctantly) stumbled upon a new approach for working with other pet sitters under his team.
Anthony operates in a unique, yet effective, way that is not quite franchising, it’s not quite licensing, and it’s not quite hiring employees.
It’s so effective because it targets only those would-be employees who are extremely motivated, skilled and responsible enough to run their own pet sitting business. And that type of person is not looking for more money, going back to school, or plotting to steal your clients.
Anthony is generous enough to share the ins and outs (the exact details of his approach) on this conference call.
Join Joshua Cary as he interviews Anthony Mucci on this set up to see if this approach is right for you!

I really enjoyed hearing about Anthony’s model. It is flexible and has many advantages over having employees or ICs. Thanks for sharing Anthony and Josh!
Happy to provide, Julie. It’s amazing how flexible our business models can be.
What is a reasonable monthly fee to charge the people I bring on?
Funny how this question was the one not answered. This all sounds so alltruistic but incredibly vague. I have run my own business for 8 yrs, this is just dancing around the IRS and doesn’t make sense for so many reasons.
Hi there “red_ps” – Thanks for stopping by. The ‘reasonable fee’ question has been spoken about in great length in months past in other circles, however, as I’m sure you know, discussing price is a big no no. Taking a step back, the approach is like a consultant or mentor position. You are getting a small fee for helping the pet sitter get set up, learn the business, and receive your guidance. It might sound vague because there is plenty of room to make this your own style.
What is your business structure and website? I’d love to check it out. Thanks!
What a great idea!!! Something I’d like to shoot for. Thanks for another exciting and innovating webinar.
Hey Vera – So happy to hear that you can see this working for you. And I love that you said ‘exciting and innovating’ – two things I continually strive to bring to our industry!
