50 Pet Sitting Business Names

Updated on February 5, 2017

If you have your heart set on working with animals, but not in a setting in which you have to see them at their worst, then you might want to consider starting your very own pet sitting business!

There’s many reasons why someone may need someone to care for their pets, whether it be vacation, business trips, a weekend away, or even just a daytime companion. Whatever the reason, it’s an industry with a good demand so as long as people have pets!


Starting a Pet Sitting Business

Many people will run their pet sitting business out of their home without issues. You can choose to do this, or decide to operate more of a daycare center.

First, you will want to secure the appropriate business permits. While the requirements may differ from area to area, you are generally required to register your business with your state’s Division of Corporations, and again with the county and/or city to meet more local requirements, mainly for tax purposes.

Once you have your licenses for business, determine where you would like to have the business, seeking a building to rent, if applicable. Renting a building may add more to your overhead expenses, but it allows more room to board more animals, thus making more money. Try to choose a spot with a nearby dog park, or somewhere that you will have access to a lot for walking the dogs.

Location is set? Great! the rest of the harder work will be getting the word out about your business and building a good reputation, ultimately leading to a well-established customer base. Advertise! That’s a big one, especially for a new business. Reach out to people by way of free social networks such as Facebook. Don’t skip over placing ads in your local newspapers and on craigslist. Post flyers where you would draw attention from your crowd: Dog parks, pet beaches, veterinary offices, etc.

More Tips to Consider

There’s so many pet sitting business names out there to choose from, so to make it a bit easier to come up with a good name, try utilizing the following tips:

  • Pet types: If you only board dogs, or if you’re totally fur-friendly, make it clear in your name what kinds of animals you are equipped to handle.

  • Rhyme: Rhymes are catchy when used in a business name, so use this concept to your advantage and try out a rhyme or two.

  • In-home, out-of-home: Will you be watching animals at your home, in a separate building, or doing multiple daily visits to your client’s homes? This is a good thing to portray in your name.

  • Be professional: People are looking for a business that they can entrust the lives of their furbabies to, so make sure your name sounds professional and appealing to your local market!

Make it a name that tells your clients how much FUN their pets will have while they're gone!
