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.

The price of Pet Sitting per night can be on par with a luxury Hotel booking. How? Say for instance, you see a month long house sitting job for 2 dogs and a cat. If you offer extras to the owner, during the meet & greet, such as walking the 2 dogs x3 days a week during the booking. Your total booking price really starts to increase. For example:
House Sitting for 31 nights @ $51pn = $1550.
x2 dogs being walked 3 days per week for 4 weeks = $40 x 12 = $480
