Pet Sitting Business Mentor | How to Start a Pet Sitting Business

Colleen Sedgwick | Pet Sitting Business Expert

When people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them:

“I’m a pet sitting business owner and business coach.”

But what I really want to say is:

“I show pet sitting business owners how to get more clients, make more money and have the freedom to do the things they love.”

And what I really, really want to say is…

“I’m a wife and a mother. I play tennis and paddle, binge-watch The Real Housewives, write and record ultra-informative blog posts and create super-awesome products and programs that feel like a day at the beach… because the more FUN and value I pour into my work, the more I can help my peeps and the more I love my life.”


I’m Colleen Sedgwick
And as you’ve probably guessed, teaching pet sitting business owners to get more clients and make more money is kind of my sweet spot.

And when it comes to turning the hobbyist pet sitters into a successful pet sitting business owner, I’m the real deal.

I’ve got 14+ years experience in the pet sitting industry. I transformed my once teeny-tiny, itty-bitty business into a thriving a lucrative enterprise that services over a thousand clients on The Main Line of Philadelphia.

Through my ultra-informative blog, videos, online courses and one-on-one coaching programs, I have empowered and taught countless other pet sitters how to turn their passion for pets into paychecks.

And when I’m not turning my knowledge of the pet sitting industry into blog posts, programs or courses you will find me loving on my family, hustling on the tennis or paddle court or watching BRAVO TV!
