Being a dog sitter is an exciting and rewarding job that requires a lot of responsibility and dedication. If you love dogs and want to spend your time taking care of them, this is an ideal job for you.

To be a good dog sitter it is important to have a great passion for animals and understand their behaviour. You must be willing to work with different breeds and sizes of dogs and know how to look after them properly. Also, it is highly recommended to have basic dog first aid knowledge, as this may be necessary in case of an emergency.

A good dog sitter must be organized, and responsible, and must be able to maintain a stable work schedule. It is important to keep yourself available on the agreed days and times, dedicate quality time to the guest dogs, and ensure all the necessary steps have been taken to keep the dogs happy and healthy.

To get a job as a dog sitter, how you present yourself is very important: who you are, what your day-to-day life looks like, why you want to do this job, and what you can offer. It is advisable to have previous experience working with dogs, either in a shelter, or a veterinary clinic, or having experience looking after your own or other’s dogs. If you don’t have any experience yet, but love dogs, one of the best ways to gain some is to volunteer with various organisations or shelters.
