"If you've been a pet sitter for even a little while and you're looking to grow your business into something that not only pays the bills, but gives you the lifestyle you want and deserve, then run-don't walk-to the nearest computer and order "Six-Figure Pet Sitting". -National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS)

"Six-Figure Pet Sitting is a guide to running a profitable pet-sitting business. Chapters cover the essentials, from basic business financial planning to advertising for clients to hiring staff members, keeping track of taxes, and much more. Accessible & user-friendly, Six-Figure Pet Sitting is written especially for entrepreneurs setting out to make a full-time business of their passion. It's professional & precautionary advice will prove just as valuable to more casual pet sitters looking to earn a little extra on the side." -Midwest Book Review

From the Author

Dear Pet Sitter,

I wish I'd had this handbook when I started my pet sitting business back in 1995! This book is the culmination of my many years of learning the hard way - and often falling flat on my face - in order to realize what works and what doesn't when it comes to running a successful, stress-free, six-figure pet sitting business.

I wrote this book so that you don't have to reinvent the wheel in terms of pet sitting business success. It is my intention that through these pages, you'll find your own mastery and six-figure profit in the world of professional pet sitting! Pet sitting is an exciting and fun business, and by applying what I've written in this book, it can be a very lucrative and flexible one.

Although this book is primarily targeted to pet sitters who have already started their businesses, I have including some start-up information in Chapter 2 for those who need some business start-up tips. If you have already launched your pet sitting business, you can skip Chapter Two or give it a quick review to ensure you haven't overlooked any important details.

I wish you much pet sitting business success!

Warmly,
Kristin Morrison
Founder, Six-Figure Pet Sitting Academy™

I purchased this book in the hopes that it would give me deeper insights into the pet service business. The information offered in this book can be found in hundreds of other business management books and doesn't present any unique guidance or observations. In fact, the way her book is written, it would be appropriate for almost any business--not just "pet sitting." My personal issues include the fact that she states in the book that you can order her forms. I ordered the forms thinking I would be getting a wealth of information through the mail. Not so. There are nine working forms (she gives updated ones as well and I'm not sure why) and you download these yourself from the link she provides you in an email. Total cost? $125.00! Now I know how she makes "six figures a year." Which brings me to another point, throughout the book is the phrase "six-figure pet sitters" or other words to the same effect, repeated ad nauseam throughout the entire book. I got so tired of reading that phrase I could have screamed. On Google, nearly an entire page is devoted to her site and the "Pet Sitting Academy"--give me a break. None of this--the book or the site have the look and sense of something written by an individual with a distinctive style. The whole thing has the smell of a slick marketing and advertising corporation. Do yourself a favor and order some other pet walking and pet sitting books from the Internet. Do your homework. I finally found some really excellent ones that also have online offers but the owners don't gouge you.

In Six-Figure Pet-Sitting, Kristin Morrison has written the definitive guide on how to create a successful and lucrative pet care business. This step-by-step guide covers every aspect of the business, gives practical and easy to follow suggestions and is clear, concise and well-written. Kristin breaks down the various services a pet care business should offer, how much time to allot for each service, how to attract clients, how to hire and manage employees and how to manage your time. Worksheets make organizing her plan a snap. You can actually use this book to develop your business plan. Prior to reading this book I believed my clients called the shots. Because of this book I have a different perspective, and instead of feeling at the mercy of my clients, I feel more confident that I can set the price I want for my services. Kristin covers one aspect of work life I've never seen addressed before in a business book: vacation. The author proudly embraces her leisure time and shows readers how to run their businesses, rather than having their businesses run them. The principles in this book, while tailored specifically to a pet care business, can be applied to any business. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. If you want both a good business and a good life, buy this book.

This excellent book is aimed at pet sitters and growing a pet sitting business, HOWEVER, many of the tools and suggestions that Kristin offers could apply to anyone looking to overcome obsticles in running (and starting/growing) a business. Having a business of your own is possible if you look at yourself and your values and challenge yourself. Building a business is a labor of love and loving yourself enough to take care of YOU is most important or your business will not thrive.--Pet Perks Pet Sitting NJ

If you are new to pet sitting this is a good book to read along with Patti Morans "Pet Sitting for Profit". The exercises in this book (6 figure pet sitting) along with many of the work pages are similar to Suzi Orman's book " The courage to be rich". 6 figure is a good companion book and compliments Suzi Orman and Patti Morans books. I would recommend reading all 3.
Also, as a side note, I rarely give 4 or 5 star reviews on HOW TO books or SELF HELP books. So this is my highest rating for a book in this category.

I have been pet sitting for 6 years now. I came across the six figure pet sitting book and website while looking into ways to expand my business. I decided to give it a try. Many of the ideas Kristin presents, I am happy to say, I already do. What I havent been able to do is get over my fear of hiring new people and really building my business to the point of being a manager with weekends off, versus dog walker working 7 days a week at all times. This book contains some great ideas that are fun to think about and have the potential to really help expand a business. There are many self help aspects to her ideas that if followed can help slow down our hectic lives and influence us to be organized, ready to take on the furry and human clients.
Im not sure what the one star reviewers objective was. Nothing in this book is going to make you rich quick. Its not brand new information, but it is written in a way that makes you feel like Kristin was in the same spot years ago. There is no one stop shop for building a pet sitting business. You need to research many ideas and theories. I do feel for the money Kristin's book is well worth the price(even if there may be a few typos, we are only human). If you are just starting out or have been in the business for years it worth checking this out.
