“Kristin has written a user-friendly, comprehensive guide book for pet

sitters and dog walkers. The book is broken into easy-to-follow Action Steps

that are well thought out and easy to follow; each step is also very realistic

and achievable. The best part is that it includes a reward at the end of each

week. Everyone who is new to the pet sitting industry should appreciate

the stories of success and also the realities that Kristin recalls from her own

business. This book is a must for anyone starting or running a pet sitting or

dog walking business. Bravo, Kristin!”

“Kristin does it again! This book is a how-to on everything you need to know

when first starting out—and even has fantastic information for those who

already have an established business! Kristin really understands that there is

more to dog walking and pet sitting than just attending to the animals; her

book helps you get mentally ready for the day as well as wind down after a

hard day to reduce fatigue and burnout, something that hits the pet industry

workers hard. If you’re waffling between opening up a dog walking or pet

sitting business or thinking of expanding, this book is perfect for you. I’m all

about accountability and I struggle with sticking to my goals, but this book

journal + guide all in one!”
