  • "Start Your Own Professional Pet-Sitting Service by David Grass, in my opinion is one of the most complete guides to pet sitting I have read in a long time. There is a lot more to this business than just putting a leash on a dog and walking it. There are many aspects that David covered very well in an easy to read format."

    Lorraine Zdeb, President of The National Association Of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS)

  • "I am impressed by your book - very comprehensive and better than others I have seen."

    Ian White of Pet-Sitters.Biz

  • "David Grass enumerates every practical detail from the stuff you will need to start your business to ways to handle difficult animals and customers....Grassís e-book is a hit with many professional pet sitters and their associations for its printable business forms. With its vast informational material and helpful business tricks the book is definitely a handy guide to starting and managing a professional pet-sitting service."

    Suman Mudamula,

  • "Excellent work!! I would recommend this book along with its printable business forms to anyone considering starting a pet-sitting operation. The material is informative, easy to read, amusing, and comprehensive. In fact, I think it's the only CD/book a person really needs for starting such a service for animals and their caregivers. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, David Grass."
