    Hi

    I am a new member of this forum and it's all quite new to me, so anyone with any info to help me make the most of it, please get in touch.

    I am in need of some answers to some questions related to a self employment business plan that I have to offer pet sitting services in the Middlesbrough area. Whatever your answers are will help me to decide if it's worth a try or not!

    My services would include:
    -Small pet boarding ie rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters etc.
    -Home visits for all pets whilst owners are away.
    -Dog walking - 1/2 hour or 1 hour.
    -Dog day care - drop dog off at my place while owner goes to work and pay same price as an hours walk.

    My main questions are 'Would you use a service like that in your area?' plus 'How much per month would you willingly spend on such a service?' - I currently spend £100 per month for half hour walks each working day, do you think that is unreasonable?

    I hope you all have some feedback - both positive and negative and you dont have to live in my area for your response to be valued.

    Thanks and get in touch

    Welcome - good luck in your new venture.

    I pay £8 for my 2 dogs to be walked with 2 other dogs for 40 minutes. (not including pick up and drop off times)
    I use the service twice a week.
    My dog walker is CRB checked and has a certificate in dog first aid.
