Job Description :
Fur Star Pet Care, LLC is a professional pet sitting/dog walking service which began in August 2016. Our mission is to provide professional, loving care to pets while their owners are away at work or on vacation. Our main service is “peace of mind” to the pet owner. Sitters will be independent contractors’ instead of ’employees’. A sitter can choose to accept or decline any pet sitting assignment offered to them. However, we are looking for sitters with reasonable availability and flexibility who will choose to accept most assignments.
Sitters are expected to visit a client’s home for the scheduled amount of time and complete it within the time frame specified by the client.Sitters must have a smartphone and be able to use it well and check emails and texts frequently throughout the day. They will need to use GPS/maps to locate a client’s home. Sitters are expected to download a free app called Time To Pet and be willing to use the app to communicate to clients, notify them of a completed visit, and send pictures of pets. sitters may also be responsible for a client’s mail, adjusting lights, taking out the trash, and cleaning up any pet messes (even some not-so-pleasant ones)–ensuring the client’s home is maintained until their return.
We are looking for sitters who are able to self manage. They must be cheerful, positive, enthusiastic, and have a genuine passion for the care of animals. They must have a very high level of customer service and be good at making clients feel at peace about leaving their most prized possessions in their care. They must act responsibly while being patient and tolerant when administering care. Since our sitters work independently in private homes, discretion and respect for the privacy of others are required. Sitters must conduct themselves in a professional manner. Sitters must be independent and able to perform initial meet and greets at the clients’ homes, and perform pet visits alone and without bringing other adults, children, or pets with them.
Sitters must be able to maintain emotional control during stressful situations, which may involve fearful or sick animals, last minute schedule changes, changes in care instructions, weather conditions, emergencies, etc. Certain visits may require frequent standing, brisk walking, lifting of animals, and potentially dealing with excited, happy dogs that jump up, scratch, push, and lick. Energy, good physical health, strength, animal sense, and stamina are a must. All sitters are required to pass a reference and background check, be over the age of 18 and have a valid driver’s license.

Morning (6am-9am)Late Morning (9am-12pm)Afternoon (12pm-3pm)Early Evening (3pm-6pm)Late Evening (6pm-9pm)Late Night (9pm-10pm)Overnight (7pm-7am)
Sitters are given the choice to accept or not accept a particular pet sitting assignment for any reason.
SERVICE AREASWe serve a 30 mile radius of Columbus so reliable transportation is a must.
COMPENSATIONSitters pay rates begin at $15 per house (Plus frequent tips from the clients) and overnight rates at $85. Sitters receive a percentage of the cost of the service they perform and are compensated for additional animals. There may be opportunities for raises in pay rates as the sitter gains experience and happy clients. There will be bonus pay for all sitters willing to work on holidays, and late night visits (9pm-10pm). Due to the nature of this business, the amount of work available will vary. There may be weeks or certain months when little to no work is available. January and February may be the slowest months. June through December are the busiest months.
