About the Author

I live in the beautiful upstate NY area with my wife and son who are very supportive of my pet sitting business. I have been pet sitting for over 8 years with hundreds of satisfied clients. We recently moved to a bigger property to be able to board several dogs at a time. I recently transitioned the business to just dog walking, Monday through Friday, after aquiring a colleagues dog walking business with over 25 daily clients. I have always had a creative side and photography has been an important part of my life. Getting out into nature with friends and my camera has been theraputic. I have had several of my images published in calendars, featured in commercial publications and news stories and have sold many framed prints of my work. Recently I was inspired to help new pet sitters/dog walkers who wanted to get into the business but did not know what was involved. There are many non-professionals who think pet sitting is just easy work. It is a profession though if done properly and can be done part-time as well as full-time. This book is for those who want to run a professional pet sitting business and may need advice on setting up your business efficently and avoiding burn out, which is very common in the field. Doing a google search turned up many sources of information that were very basic, however there were no books with in-depth knowledge. Looking at sites like Amazon I found many books that were dated, so I wanted to write a fresh approach that encompassed modern technology and marketing practices. The research for getting a book published had been very informative and if all goes well I would like to write more.

Paul has written a soup to nuts handbook that seems to answer all the things I was wondering about and more. I am just at the beginning of my business and I can tell that the book is totally on the right track. It's also a pleasure to read, reads very easily and is going to remain to be a valuable reference as I continue building my business. I highly recommend this book.
