Because we work when our clients need us, there is no typical schedule. However, we can provide some basic guidance.
We like to assign clients to sitters who live within a 15 minute drive of their home. Because we services a 20 mile radius of Ogden, Utah, you must live within this area. This is a part-time job and pet sitters and dog walkers would not find it cost-effective to drive long distances to client homes.
PET SITTERS: The typical client goes out of town anywhere from 3 to 7 days at a time, but could be up to 2 weeks at a time. Most clients opt for 2 visits in their home per day, but some choose 3 or even 4.
It’s not mandatory that you be available to work all shifts, as we attempt to assign clients to sitters whose schedules are compatible with theirs. However, the more availability you have, the greater the likelihood of being assigned visits as clients schedule them.
Two visits per day: You’ll do a morning visit between 6:00 am and 8:00 am and an evening visit between 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm. The visits would be scheduled 12 hours apart.
Three visits per day: Visits are spaced about 6 hours apart, so you’ll do a morning visit between 6:00 am – 8:00 am, a midday visit from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm and an evening visit from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.
DOG WALKERS: Clients who use this service generally work long hours during the week and are looking for someone to provide their pooches with a potty break and a walk. Walk times vary between 30 – 60 minutes. Most walks occur between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm.
Because we work when our clients need us, this means our busiest times are weekends, summers, holidays including the weeks before and after major holidays so you must have availabiity during these times.
