We provide detailed advice on all aspects of being a Registered Petsitter, including Quoting Charges, Payments, Bookings, Terms and Conditions, Public Liability, Third Party and Animal Insurance, Responsibilities, Accidents, Insurance Claims, Disputes, Complaints, Current Legislation including The Animal Boarding Establishments Act 1963 and the Clean Neighbourhoods & Environment Act 2005, etc. We provide a great deal of Advice and Tips for members on many subjects from “Qualifying” potential customers, best forms of advertising, networking etc and even how to earn extra money from related services, including a Pet Plan Insurance Introducer Scheme. We do not presume to teach people about how to care for pets; experience is a basic requirement of membership. We do however cover the practicalities of the work, and in particular we try to answer your “What happens if.......” questions. Please note we are not an agency and whilst it is not our function to provide you with work we do enlist your name, telephone number and the services you offer on the National Register of Petsitters so that clients can contact you direct; we also explain how best to promote your services economically and successfully. All this is in addition to the many other benefits as listed in the Membership packages.
As a Registered National Petsitter you will benefit from our many years of experience and our On-going help and support throughout the term of your membership which we hope will be a long, successful, and very happy one.
