Hello dear pet business owners,
Google has changed their algorithm yet again (silly Google!)
Here’s what this means to you in very simple terms, oh pet business owner:
If your site is not mobile-friendly you may not show up (at all) on Google. Which could be very bad for business. Ouch!
Here’s what you can do right now to check and see if your pet business website is mobile-friendly:
1. Enter your pet business website url in the mobile-friendly Google check.
2. If your site is not mobile-friendly, you’ll be prompted to click the “Make This Page Mobile-Friendly” section on the right side.
3. You will be alerted what needs to change (either by you or your web person if you are not able to make the changes yourself).
For those of you who used a web designer/programmer to create your website, I encourage you to contact them ASAP to see what the cost would be to make your site mobile-friendly for Google. Put this action item on your to do list this week so you can continue to have clients find your pet business website online!

Do you have pet sitting or dog walking staff members?
If not, do you want to hire some great people this year? Or…are you one of those pet sitters who consistently hires horrible people? (Don’t worry if you do, there’s hope!)
Here’s the Thing: Fear Is Normal. If you haven’t yet hired, you probably are feeling some fear about hiring. If so, don’t worry! That’s normal when you are new to hiring. And believe it or not, fear is actually a good emotion that keeps you on your toes about hiring the right person. But having TOO much fear around hiring can lead to bad decisions or (eek!) no decision at all. And without staff then you are forced to work more hours than you might like in your pet sitting business. And that’s no fun. 🙁
Is Your ‘Picker’ Off? If you do have pet sitters and dog walkers working for you, are they GREAT staff members? Lots of pet sitting business owners are just that…great pet sitting business owners. But often great pet sitting business owners can have a hard time making the shift to picking the right people and hiring great staff members. And believe me, it IS a big shift to go from being a pet sitter or a pet sitting business owner to someone who is actually hiring pet sitters. It’s a different skill set.
I Had a Bad Picker Too. Then I Made Some Big Shifts In The Way I Hired. If you have fear around hiring pet sitters and are terrible at hiring you are not alone. When I first started hiring I had a lot of fear around hiring pet sitters too (and that fear kept me awake far too many nights when I was first hiring!) And early on, when I hired people, my staff choices were horrible. (It hurts just thinking about it.) But then I discovered and developed simple and foolproof methods that made the hiring pet sitters process nearly painless and helped me hire incredible people. I hired about 250 pet sitters in the 18 years that I owned my pet care business. And for the last few years of running my business we often had an average of 35 great pet sitters on staff at any one time. I had created a different reality for myself and my company. Hiring went from being the task I despised to one I actually enjoyed…because I had learned how to pick the right people.
My Favorite Pet Sitting Staff Compliment Ever. The most common happy compliment given to me about my pet sitting company from our clients who used our pet care service was: “I don’t know where you find your pet sitting and dog walking staff but they are ALL so wonderful.” Ahh….music to my ears.
Hiring Pet Sitters and Dog Walkers. Made Easy. (Yes, Easy!) I’m excited to share with you proven ways that will help YOU hire great staff too. At the end of this month I’m teaching a webinar that will help you hire wonderful pet sitters and dog walkers. Click for more information and to sign up now for the webinar How to Hire Great Pet Sitters and Dog Walkers.
I’m so looking forward to help you hire wonderful pet sitters and dog walkers so you can take a much-needed break (or perhaps just get some office work done!)
Let me ask you something…
-Do you feel cranky and irritable when your business phone rings?
-Has your car become your premier dining spot in between pet sitting, dog training and dog walking jobs?
-Do you find yourself wanting to walk away from your business because you’ve fallen out of love with it?
Don’t worry, there’s hope! (And just in time for the holidays. Whew!)
I experienced burnout in my own pet business a few years ago and it wasn’t pretty. I nearly threw in the towel in my business. But thankfully I didn’t.
Instead I made some important changes in the way I ran my business and after only one year of making those changes I made more money, worked less and yes, fell in love with my business again. I know, I know… it sounds like a Hollywood movie but it’s true. I’ve helped lots of pet business owners do the same. I can help you too.
If you are ready to recover from business burnout and to create a healthy relationship with your business, so that your pet business works for you instead of you working for your business, you’ll want to attend the upcoming webinar.
Looking forward to helping you rediscover ease and profit in your business,
