Yes.  The Pet Sitter and Dog Walker Training Course is mandatory for all Sitters and Walkers to do.


The safety of pets and people is of the highest importance to us and we cannot stress the importance of this enough.


We used to charge $75 for this course, we have instead made it FREE as we want ALL Sitters and Walkers to do this. 

This MUST be completed before any jobs are taken on.
