I felt a bit lost before taking this course and now I feel that I am on strong ground. I know what I need to do to set-up a stable pet sitting business. I have started taking the steps that I did not know I needed to do before. I also gained a great deal of knowledge about business planning, finances, and general pet and emergency care...I now feel prepared thanks to this course! I am so grateful for the information, help, and discussions...I am more knowledgeable and will be able to provide even better services to my clients. I couldn't have done it without your help. Thank you so much!

This is the first online course I've taken and I was impressed! For someone who hasn't been in a class setting since 83' I was actually looking forward to the release of each lesson. I feel as though I've learned a lot and got great advice from Jeff. I am excited to be on my way to starting my pet sitting business. Thanks again, Jeff!

I really enjoyed this course. Jeff is an excellent instructor. I learned a great deal about the pet sitting business and quite a bit more about animals. The course is structured and has covered everything needed in detail to answer my questions. I now have the confidence to put it all together. Jeff is very encouraging and knowledgeable.

I loved this course! I've always had an interest in pet sitting. I have been doing it for friends and family for years now, but I just never realized I could do it as a career. I'm thankful for the knowledge that I've gained through this course. I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do in the world of pet sitting.

I am so glad I did this course! Before, I thought, “Oh, I’ll just start a pet-sitting business.” Now I realize what is really involved in caring for someone else’s “fur child.” I cannot believe how much information Jeff packed into this little six-week course. All of the lessons were valuable, interesting, and engaging. I feel totally prepared to start my own business now, and I am also thinking about how I can expand to offer other services in the future. I would recommend that anyone considering starting a pet-sitting business take this course—you will learn SO much and be more professional and marketable as a result. I loved it! Thanks, Jeff.

Thank you so much for this packed-with-knowledge class. As a long-time animal (dog, cat and horse) owner, I thought I knew all there was to know when I began taking this course. Wow, was I wrong. There is so much good information here that it enhanced my basic knowledge and has given me the confidence to start my own small business.

Enjoyable learning and reading of the information and quizzes. I would refer anyone wanting to start pet-sitting to this course. Thank you!

I want to pet sit when I retire from full-time work...I learned a lot of medical concepts that people never think about. I also learned a lot about the many needed forms for running this type of business. The instructor gave many helpful links and he and his assistant answered any questions posted on the discussion boards.

Pet sitting is something I've wanted to do, but didn't know where to start. This course was exactly what I was looking for! I've already started the process - thanks to my instructor. I can't wait to see where this road goes!

I enjoyed this class very much, and I'm very impressed with the material that was covered. I honestly felt that every point was touched on that I will need to start my business. Wonderful instructor!
