The Sitting Project is a resource for people who travel often for work or pleasure and need a trusted and reliable person to provide one-on-one care for their little ones, water their plants, or just watch over their belongings. Animals can become nervous and anxious when their owners leave. Having a trusted person staying in your home giving attention to your pet, allows you to enjoy your time away, while knowing your pet and home are safe.
Why not treat your pet to a little vacation pampering too? Very seldom do I book more than one pet owner at a time. This ensures that your pet has my undivided attention. I do not walk multiple dogs in a pack. I do however, encourage playtime with other dogs and include many doggy adventures that owners are comfortable with, such as running, biking, climbing and even camping and hiking.
Why such a competitive rate? By welcoming me into your home, you reduce my overhead. I work as an independent contractor; I am able to utilize your home as a space to work and sleep. We are trading conveniences measured in value. This is not a situation for every pet/house owner. It requires a trusted partnership to make this work. The small fee instated is to ensure accountability, cleanliness and basic maintenance fees. Shorter weekend visits cost more, as most of my business is based on 7 days or longer care.
• Pets or plants stay in a familiar environment.
• No traumatic and expensive boarding homes (which can cost up to $100/day).
• Return to a home that is cleaner than when you left.
• Save time and the hassle of dropping off and picking up your pet.
• One-on-one attention to your pet.
• No worry about bugs and disease at a boarding facility.
• Constant love and attention (we all could use a little of this).
•Mail and package pick-up.
•Security and peace of mind that your place is being watched over.
About the Founder:
Benjamin began this project in the summer of 2011 full time and has been pet sitting for over three years. He partnered with a friend to watch her cats, while basing from her space as an independent contractor for print design. As his pet care client list grew larger, he realized there is a real demand for personal, one-on-one care for pets. Combined with his caring nature and intense organizational skills he soon created a network of clients across Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.
The Sitting project is expanding its boundaries. Think outside the box: outside of the city, outside the state, outside the country. Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Boulder, Denver, Austin, Miami, London, Paris and more. In some cases, if you provide the airfare, I provide the service. I travel from east to west coast often. Inquire for your own personalized rate.
