Moving to any place different then where you were is difficult for anyone. Especially if it involves leaving a good, strong, successful business, friends that were forever, family members that were always close by, and familiar places and things. Now trying to start your strong, successful business back up from ground level in the new place, is probably tougher then the first time, because you want it to be where it was when you left the last place!
Pet sitting is a business that is based on trust, you have to trust someone to come into your home, and do the things that the pet sitter has promised you they would do! And you have to trust what is in most cases the most important thing in your life, to a stranger! Most pet sitters understand that, because most pet sitters have pets themselves, and at one time or another find themselves in your situation.
Having moved here from Denver, at a time when the economy started it's downhill slide, and then went kerplunk!, pet sitting has been hard to do, people don't want to trust new pet sitters, if you aren't from here, they don't want you in thier homes! And they don't want you near thier pets! Having said that, Thank you to those that have let Roxanne's dog walking and pet sitting into their homes these last 6 years!
