Professional Pet Sitter

Pet sitting is a lovely profession and pet sitters are always in demand. The profession of pet sitting is great for people who love pets and have a passion for them. Many people love pets and care for them, but they are stuck in boring jobs. Such people can follow their passion and choose pet sitting as a profession.

Many pet sitters are making a living by this profession.

If you have a passion for pets and want to become a professional pet sitter, this post will offer you the best tips on how to make a career in pet sitting.

Access your knowledge

Love for pets is a basic necessity in the profession of pet sitting. If you have an experience with your own pets it will be an additional advantage. People having pets know many things like the habits of pets, how to feed them and many other things they can use to become a pet sitter.

There are many areas in this profession that you will need to learn about. For example, you might have experience living with multiple breeds of dogs, but this profession will require you to train yourself with cats and other animals too.

Proper training is essential for success in the profession of pet sitting. Check the online class and training workshops on pet sitting to get the required training in the specific pet care.

Join a dog sitting organization

You should join a dog-sitting organization to learn and gain experience in dog care.  It is best to join a national dog sitting organization as they offer hands-on training, newsletters and have a support community.

All these things will help you gain knowledge and experience in dog sitting. Most people have dogs in their house. Therefore, pet sitters with experience in dog sitting are never short of customers.

Attend some animal behavior classes

To be successful in pet sitting you should take some classes on animal behavior. You may have experience with cats or dogs, but what if you get a call from a client having parrots or hamsters. Some people may call you for taking care of parrots, hamsters or ferrets. You will lose customers if you don’t have the experience with other animals.

Therefore, taking animal behavior classes is essential to gain knowledge and experience about a variety of animals. Also, there are local clubs and organization in big cities that will help you with the study and training of animal behavior. Moreover, joining such clubs is a great way to build your network.

Decide to work for yourself or a pet sitting company

You must decide whether you want to work for yourself or a pet sitting company. People who are new to pet sitting and have never worked in this field should work for a pet sitting company.

Working with a company allows you to gain knowledge and hands-on experience before you start your own pet sitting business. It will also help you understand the behavior of a variety of animals and customer needs.

Get the liability insurance

If you want to start your own pet sitting business or work as a self-employed sitter, you must get a pet sitter liability insurance. Doesn’t matter how conscious a pet sitter is, accidents can happen at any time.

The liability insurance offers you and your customers, peace of mind that you are covered if anything goes wrong. No pet sitter should work unprotected in today’s litigious societies.

Getting the service contracts

If you don’t want to work in a pet sitting company and aim to offer independent services, then you will need to get a service contract. You can purchase the service contract or have a lawyer to create one for you. The agreement should outline all the services you will offer, including essential information about pets, home care needs and limitations.

Learn the first aid for pets

It is essential for all the pet sitters to learn the first aid for pets. Pets are naughty and can get themselves hurt any time under your supervision. Knowing about the first aid will help you to offer the necessary treatment to the pets before taking them to a veterinarian.

You should also get the contact details of some veterinarians so that you can contact them in case of an emergency.

Market yourself

Even after learning everything about pet sitting, if you are not receiving calls from customers, it means you are not adequately marketing yourself. Your community and potential customers don’t know you.

Therefore, you need to network with pet groomers, local veterinarians, pet owners and promote yourself through social media. The more you network with the people, the sooner you will start getting contracts.

Final Words

Pet sitting is an excellent profession for pet lovers. However, you need to gain knowledge and experience to succeed in this field. It takes time to be successful for the new pet sitters as people don’t know about them.

As they spread the word and grow their network, there would be getting calls from customers. Following the above tips to become a pet sitter can help individuals to prepare themselves to follow their passion for pets.

After a point in time when life seems to be settled and the things that you once desired has been accomplished you try to search for new horizons. One such new horizon was. It was only a year ago that I started this journey and now the journey has become a part of my existence.

PM Modi was Seen Plogging at Mamallapuram Beach

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a name that needs no introduction. He is a man of words, what he said, he does. As we know he is so strict regarding preserving Mother Nature and preserving our environment. That’s why he encourages everyone to avoid the use of plastics in daily life and he is the man behind launching Swacch Bharat Mission in India to encourage everyone to make India neat and clean. Recently, we also him on a cleaning spree at Tamil Nadu’s beach, Mamallapuram ahead of meeting with Chinese President, Xi Jinping. Most of the individuals have appraised Modi for this act while some are making fun of him by saying, cleaning plastic with plastic and some other comments.

PM Modi also releases a video on Twitter while cleaning the trash-

Even PM Modi also released the video on Twitter where he could be seen picking up plastic garbage from the beach and other kinds of waste from while doing his morning walk which got viral on social media. He was wearing a black kurta and dhoti, walking barefoot and picking up litter very nicely.

Modi on Twitter Said

On his Twitter profile, he mentioned, “Plogging at a beach in Mamallapuram this morning. It lasted for over 30 minutes. Also handed over my ‘collection’ to Jeyaraj, who is a part of the hotel staff? Let us ensure our public places are clean and tidy! Let us also ensure we remain fit and healthy.”

Seeing his Post on Twitter, fisherman K. Vinod who belongs to the Ocean awareness group, responded, “When the Prime Minister can do it, why can’t ordinary people too.

One of the Mamallapuram residents appraises Modi’s Act

Appraising the act, Mamallapuram resident, Aine Edwards had also posted several photographs where she says how clean the town and beach looks after the summit. “It just shows that the town has the potential to be clean. The humans, who cleaned it up so beautifully, did a good job. But can they keep it that way?” she asked.

Actor Prakash Raj criticized his exercise

Some of them also criticized this act of Modi, Actor Prakash Raj on Twitter said,

Other people said that the beach was already clean since it’s a tourist place. Modi is just trying to raise his name that’s it. For example Kancheepuram District Collector, P. Ponniah said the plastic must have washed up onto the beach. “Since the beach is visited by tourists, it is usually kept clean. We had also cleaned up the beach before and during the summit,” he said. Here, he means to criticize his exercise.

As PM Modi has arranged an informal summit with Chinese President, Xi Jinping, he also discussed with him lots of other areas of concern and issues that are affecting our environment and nature. They both met at Mamallapuram and held the second round of talks at Taj Fishermen’s Cove in Kovalam.

This year while giving a speech on the occasion of Independence Day, PM Modi had announced a campaign to make the country free by not using any kind of plastic. Now, we need to wait and watch how many of us will follow what he said to keep our country clean.

Many people are telling that he is pretending to clean the beach. For all those haters, Team GudStory wants to give a simple msg which is the same in the following tweet..

Finance Ministry Decides To Shut Down Two Telecoms BSNL and MTNL Putting The Lives of Over 2 lakh Jobs at Stake

Finance Ministry Decides To Shut Down Two Telecoms BSNL and MTNL

The two of the most prominent broadband companies, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) are going to be shut down as decided by the Finance Ministry. Well, this news has made many people sad and disheartened. The reason behind this is their love and attachment towards these service operators they have for decades that they can’ afford to forget. As per the reports by the Financial Express, the two public sector undertakings are now finding difficult to sustain amid the competition between private companies that have taken over them. This is why the government has finally decided to shut them down permanently which will leave people working here in the lurch.

The report also tells that the ministry has rejected the proposal kept by the two telcos of pumping in a massive amount of Rs. 74,000 crore to revive them. The ministry has told that the total expense in closing both the companies would be less than Rs. 95,000 crore including the payment to their 1.65 lakh employees for the voluntary retirement scheme and its debt repayment.

While the proposal to shut down these two companies might be very surprising for many but for some it was obvious as we all know how hard it was for BSNL to survive between too many competing companies in the private sector. BSNL has been struggling for very long and even its employees were also not paid for a long time due to their incapability. Last month, it was reported that BSNL had asked 50% of its employees to resign at their will. Even, MTNL is also making defaults for not paying their employees on time from some months.

Both of these companies have a huge employee base. BSNL has 1.76 lakh employees across India while MTNL has around 22,000 employees and the total monthly salary expenses of BSNL are in the range of Rs. 750-850 crore while that of MTNL is around Rs. 160 crores which they are not able to pay right now.

As soon as this news came out, people became emotional and they start outraging their comments on Twitter for the companies and their attachment towards them.

6. Children were made ambassadors of Swachh Bharat

Many small children were also made brand ambassadors of cleanliness mission, Swachh Bharat for Indore. The songs were also recorded by the children regarding the garbage collection and were played so that other people would get to know about this. Even they use rap to make it more attractive and attention-seeking.

Not only these measures have made the city beautiful and clean, but also the government efforts and some strict policies related to garbage collection have made people attentive. Those who do not pay attention to it were also levied a hefty fine and those who followed were given awards. This is due to their combined efforts, Indore was ranked the cleanest city in India, according to Swachh Survekshan which is an initiative of the Urban Development Ministry.

So, by following these ways we can also make our city clean and beautiful like Indore. Let’s take a pledge that we will not litter and try to save our environment and mother earth.
