Best answer:

Answer by Beth
How BIG do you want to go?

School is optional. Chances are you will get more customers with some sort of degree, but experience is a need. As for the certificate? Well, you will need an inspection of the facilities (unless you are doing a low-scale pet-sitting, in your home). You want to have veterinarians lined up. (A vet that specializes– such as in reptiles, small mammals, birds, dogs, cats….) I would feel comfortable if you supplied me with this information, allowing me to see who will be preforming on my animal (if need be). Especially if I do not already have a vet of my own.

As for facility set-up? Again, how big do you want to go? You will need running water, cleaning products, heat (lots of it), shelter, and food. (Sterilizing is huge.) Larger facility– larger heating bills. More animals– more food, more cleaning, more water.

Good luck.

You didn’t say what state you’re in. Do you mean Lenoir City, TN ???

When my mother in law was dying we used Catatoga, and I know they are good. I don’t know Gray Dog Lodge.

I looked at their Gray Dog Lodge website and they look good -!-

Is Great wolf lodge the best place to go on a vacation ?

What kind of insurance needed for in home pet sitting business?

home for pet

Lodging for your pets
Question by October baby: What kind of insurance needed for in home pet sitting business?
We live in NY state. I am considering pet sitting in my home as a side business. How do I go about finding out what insurance I would need? I want to protect myself from liability in case the dog I am watching bites someone or destroys property.
Also, if you know what type of license or permits I would need or where to find out about those in NY state, I would appreciate being pointed in the right direction.
Thanks.

Best answer:

Answer by mbrcatz17
None is required by law.

YOUR policy won’t protect you, if the dog destroys his own house, or yours. But the bite thing is an issue.

Because of that, the liability insurance for this type of business can be pretty expensive – as they can’t underwrite by animal. Expect it to start at $ 2500, since you want bite liability coverage. Without bite liability, you’ll be able to get it at $ 500 or so – IF someone is willing to write it.

In any case, you’ll need to buy that coverage, through a local, independent agent (www.iiaa.org for a list by zip code).

you could always put fresh straw in the bedding of the dog house no matter what kind of dog house you buy. also you can put a lite bulb in the house also and it will generate some heat for him also..

I only know that your regular vet will sometimes come out if you can not move the animal, but some animal control officers will come to the house if need be.

Question by Jellybean: How do you fold a pet lodge dog crate?
I’m bought two and need to put them away before the guests come over. Trouble is, I can’t remember how I set them up, therefore I’m not sure how to take it down. I unlatched the two short square walls from the rectangular ones but the short walls won’t go anywhere. I can’t put them in or under the crate. I can fold the rectangular walls just fine but after that I’m lost. Help?

Answer by keezy
the ends should be folded onto the crate before the sides are folded up
