So, just how did The Global Pet Sitters get started? Well, back In 2017, we realised how few countries we’d actually been to and were really racking our brains to see if we could find a way to see more of the world. Our problem was our budget! 10 years earlier we left our well paid jobs to set up a small online business, with the aim of giving us more free time. We had certainly given ourselves more free time, but this came at a cost, a big reduction in our income.
We were a little sceptical about it though, as it really sounded to good to be true, but we certainly interested enough to find out more about how to start pet sitting. After researching and comparing house and pet sitting websites, we came across Trustedhousesitters, which stood out above the rest. So we decided to sign up and apply for a few sits locally in Norfolk and Suffolk to see how it went.
We were lucky enough to be accepted for the very first pet sit we applied for, Txuri, the Pyrenean mountain dog from Aldeburgh in Suffolk. The owner was amazingly generous and Txuri was a dream pup to sit for. After a few more local house sits in East Anglia we felt confident that this really could be a way of making our travel dreams a reality. We new we would be competing with many other sitters for assignments abroad, so decided to showcase our pet sitting experience, previous sits and reviews on a website to send to prospective pet owners. And That’s how The Global Pet Sitters started!
