Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need formal training?

Most of our Fetch! Pet Sitters have hands on experience with animals and are animal lovers too. Once you're hired you will receive an orientation to perform services in accordance with Fetch! Pet Care standards to ensure safety and quality.

What types of services would I perform?

Depending on availability, our Pet Sitters perform various jobs including pet visits, dog walks, cat playtime, puppy care, feeding and transporting pets. Some locations also offer boarding at the sitter's home and overnight care at the client's home.

What will an average day look like?

Your day will vary by the type and quantity of assignments you wish to take on. As you begin, you may have a limited number of assignments. As you build your clientele, you may have assignments that begin in the morning and end in the afternoon.

What can I expect to earn?

Your income will vary by the quantity and types of assignments you choose to accept and perform. We will do our best to work with you to build a schedule that meets your financial income needs.

Do you care for pets that are aggressive?

We take many steps to ensure the pets our sitters care for are safe and friendly. Our Pet Care Coordinators first screen the pet's background and disposition during a phone interview with the pet's owner. We also offer in-home consultations for all of our clients so that sitters, pets and their owners will be well acquainted before any service takes place. If a sitter has safety concerns with any pet or simply doesn't believe it's a perfect match then the pet will be reassigned to another sitter or not taken on as a client.

What types of pets would I care for?

Fetch! Pet Care loves all types of animals! While our most common pet clients are dogs and cats, we have been known to care for small caged pets such as gerbils, lizards, fish, and birds, as well as livestock in some rural areas, such as horses, cows and chickens.

Do I need to take every job assignment given to me?

One of the perks of being a Fetch! Pet Sitter is having a flexible schedule. You can select which assignments you choose to take, and you will work with the local owner to coordinate your available hours with job assignments.
