.What is Licensed, Bonded and Insured
As a professional pet sitter, make sure you are insured, licensed and bonded. Having these in place help you in the event that a pet in your care dislocates its hip, or swallows a ball at a dog park and requires surgery, for example. Here are the distinctions to help you understand the differences:
• Licenses. The city issues a permit for a business license, allowing you to operate in a particular area. A professional license indicates that you have passed tests showing your proficiency to work as a pet sitter. Currently, professional licensing requirements for pet sitters are not required.
• Bonding. A bond ensures a client that the bonding company will pay for stolen items if you are found guilty of theft while on the job.
• Insurance. Liability insurance is similar to most insurance policies, such as covering accidents that may affect the client’s pets or property while you are there working.
It is important to protect yourself and your clients by ensuring that you fulfill all the legal requirements in your area.
