First things first, we encourage you to be as creative as you can. Really let your personality shine through. The more “you” you sound, the more likely you are to appeal to potential employers.

Second, as you only have space for three reasons at 60 characters each, you need to keep it short and sweet. Choose information that will really sell your abilities in as few words as possible.

Below are some examples based on different types of pet sitters:


New Pet Sitter

You are new or just starting out in pet sitting and don’t have much experience. But never fear! Just because you don’t have years of experience under your belt doesn’t mean you can’t be an excellent candidate. 

Some examples of reasons you could provide are your work ethic, your commitment, your love of animals, your drive, and so much more. 

Here are some examples that may help you better frame your own reasons:

“I have grown up surrounded by all kinds of animals.”

“I love animals just about as much as they love me.”

“I am good at understanding pets’ needs and conditions.”

Experienced Pet Sitter

You have many pet sitting clients or years of experience under your belt and have the skills to prove it. This is a great position to be in, but it doesn’t mean you don’t still need to sell your skills to employers.

The best way to approach the ‘Reasons To Hire Me’ section is to highlight your track record and show your successes. By mentioning your years of experience, animal expertise, comments made about you by previous employers, and other similar ideas, you will be able to better stand out as an experienced pet sitter.

Here are some examples that may help you better frame your own reasons:

“I walk dogs daily. I’d be happy to add yours to the pack!”

“In my 10+ years as a pet sitter, I’ve never had an issue.”

“I specialize in non-common pets, including farm animals.”
