If you are a pet lover and are keen to make some extra cash these holidays, why not sign up as a pet sitter in your local area?
With the demand for pet care exceeding the availability, PetHomeStay is offering Australians to make more than $1,000 extra cash this Christmas by signing up online to be a pet sitter .
Online pet sitting services have surged 240 per cent year on year. An average Christmas holiday booking is three weeks and pet sitters can earn an average of $35 per night.
CEO and founder of PetHomeStay, Tom LeGrice, said anyone looking to make extra money right now who is over 18, loves pets and has a suitable property can apply to become a host.
“Pet sitting is a flexible way to make money and our busy hosts can earn up to $1,000 or more in four weeks over the Christmas and school holiday period.
“Our hundreds of existing hosts around Australia range from stay at home mums to university students, people who work from home and retirees. Sometimes our hosts have a pet that they want to socialise or a pet that loves the company. Or they’re an animal lover but a full time pet doesn’t fit into their lifestyle.
“The high demand for national pet sitters is driven by Australian pet owners’ growing confidence in the community trust of peer-to-peer businesses, such as Uber and Airbnb. As travel accounts for 80% of our bookings, it’s an extra busy time” said LeGrice.
