PetCloud enables me to follow my passion to work with all different animals and gave me the confidence I needed - that I was meeting the pet care standards expected of me through their online accredited pet sitting course.

The PetCloud website reaches Pet Owners in my area - much more effectively than my own marketing efforts and it's wonderful working with a company who gives back to support the RSPCA's rescue work.

"PetCloud provide the platform for me to advertise my services on the internet. Not only do they supply me with a fabulous website, they cover me and the dog with insurance. They provide Support, Privacy, Learning courses and more. PetCloud basically does all the work matching me with dog owners looking for care in my area.

I now feel confident about handing out my business cards, which directs people to my PetCloud listing & (not my home address) via the PetCloud website. I receive a booking request showing a picture and details of the dog looking for a minder. If I feel I could mind the pooch, it is then that I give the owner my contact details and arrange a "Meet and Greet".

I have bookings well into next year. Not only do I love the dogs, but I have made good friends with the owners who are mostly local, but I would never have met them if it weren't for PetCloud." - Jolie
