Pet Sitting as a Career

Turn your passion for pets into a rewarding professional career. 


Do you have a passion for pets? Interested in a career change, a new business opportunity or a second source of income?


Nearly 7,000 member businesses make up Pet Sitters International. The majority of PSI's membership is composed of sole proprietor businesses founded by entrepreneurial pet lovers who looked to pet sitting as a career opportunity.


Many PSI members were formerly educators, business professionals, and medical and veterinary industry support personnel--people from all walks of life. 


We asked our members what made them choose to become a pet sitter and overwhelmingly, the responses were:

  • a love of animals
  • the opportunity to be one’s own boss
  • the desire to leave the corporate world
