    Re: Pet Sitting Rates

    I don't know about charging by the hour. Are you going to care for dogs in a sort of "doggy daycare" situation where you don't have them for several days, but just for a few hours? Or are you going to actually keep them while owners go out of town? In which case an hourly rate would not be best, but maybe a daily rate. Whatever the case, look up what boarding facilities in your area charge for these services and go from there
