This was a good purchase. I belong to the related pet sitting organization, which I think is the best among multiple pet sit search sites. The author's experience is very apparent in the thorough coverage of aspects of running a small business. It is, of course, very specific to pet related services, but does cover some basic business concepts like planning, marketing, etc. Glad I made the purchase. I reviewed it when it first arrived and find myself going back to look for answers to specific questions as time goes by.

First, a full disclosure -- I run my own pet-sitting business and I'm a happy, paid member of Patti's organization, Pet Sitters Internaitonal (PSI). She's a good business woman who had the sense to get out of the industry and create alliances to help those in the industry. Second disclosure, I run an organization geared directly toward helping petsitters start and run a successful business so that they can enjoy their life, work with great clients and retire happy.

Now, onto the review. I bought this book about 6 months after I started sitting full-time. I had already bought, read and devoured Lori and Scott Mangold's book.

This book was a disappointment to me -- it had been touted for so long by so many that I know and respect as THE BIBLE of pet-sitting. So, I guess I was expecting fireworks and drumrolls. None of that is here.

It's basic. It's not quite a how-to and definitely not the Complete Manual for Professional Success. But then, a complete manual would need to be much larger and more expensive.

There are alot of ambiguities as noted by other reviewers and I really wish there was a more extensive Appendix listing places to get information regarding licensing, insurance, employees vs ICs etc. for each state.

But, there's still a good overview of the business here. So it's worth having in your library -- I just wouldn't depend on this as my sole guide to starting and running a successful pet-care business.

Unlike some of the other books I purchased on this business, this book focuses on the actual business. Another book I purchased was a joke. The book focused on setting up a business, filing, and general info on the administration of a small business. This book gets into the meat of the Pet Sitting Business. If you want to start a Pet Sitting Business, this is definitely the book to purchase.

helped me tremendously get my business off to a start, not a good start , but a start. My area is saturated w pet sitters so I do not think I can stay in the business. But, the book is good

I thought the book was excellent. I loved her style, not too dry, very humorous. It was a very quick easy read, and had great ideas for starting a new business. Lots of help and references. The best book I've read on the topic. I'm brand new in the business and I based my business planning on her book. I also had the opportunity to meet the author, and she is a great person, very helpful. I highly recommend it.

This comprehensive book offers a lot of substance regarding the dog sitting business. By studying the content, I am able to consider possibilities that are more extensive than my limited thought process. I did find a need to gloss over non-computer-age references. It's a fundamental book.
This is my new go-to book. Especially because I’m starting a pet sitting business. So far so great! I cannot wait to finish reading the book! Love it!
