Get your passports ready because you can actually get a job as a globetrotting pet sitter. It turns out people all over the world will pay you to come stay in their homes and care for their pets. So you get to travel and take care of adorable animals. Sound like fun to you? Here’s what you need to know.
Through the site Trusted Housesitters, pet and homeowners can connect with people with a passion for animals and travel, so the whole thing is mutually beneficial. First the pet owners post the requirements and details the potential pet-sitter needs to meet, as well as deets about the house and fun, local attractions.
Next, pet sitters send in their applications and explain why they are a better choice than all the other applicants. Then there’s a three-step verification process, which includes a background check. And finally, the pet owner picks the best match to care for their home and fur baby.
