Dog walking and pet sitting can be challenging when working alone. Typically it is a 7 days a week, all holidays, weekends, and long hours. Finding time to take days off is challenging. This can create an unbalanced life of mostly work. Close to Home makes it fun and enjoyable for everyone, especially the little furry friends.
