Professional Pet Sitting
The industry of professional pet sitting is one of the fastest growing entrepreneurial endeavours in the UK and other developed, service driven economies around the globe. The industry continues to grow to meet the needs of families and individuals with pets. It also offers a business opportunity in a field with tremendous growth potential for those individuals or families with little capital to invest, but who want to become independent of corporate lifestyles or free from the economic stresses of 9.00am - 5.00pm working.
Pets have become an increasingly integral and important part of people’s lives and those required to work long hours or away from home, or travel on holiday are in need of reliable pet care services. The demand for highly skilled and knowledgeable operators currently outstrips supply.
Pet Care Franchise - Background of GB Pet Sitters
GB Pet Sitters was established on the back of the success of Nottingham Pet Sitters (Flagship Operation, established in 2001). Nottingham Pet Sitters commenced trading with a small dedicated team of 2 full-time staff and now has a client base in excess of 1000. Subsequent operations in various locations around the UK are also market leaders. We have a total of 31 franchisees in various stages of development.
The business has enjoyed tremendous year on year growth and GB Pet Sitters hope to replicate this success throughout the franchise network, utilising both an already successful proposition, with an organic business that allows new ideas and concepts to filter from the bottom upwards. As the first ever pet care franchise to operate without a franchise licence fee, GB Pet Sitters are choosing business leaders of the future, not unsuitable franchisees with capital to invest.
We will ensure that GB Pet Sitters franchisees continute to lead the way with training, new services and developments in the pet care industry.

“I joined GB Pet Sitters 3 ½ years ago after I was made redundant from working as an Office Manager for a Plant Hire Company. After viewing many Pet Care franchises online, I was particularly interested in GB Pet Sitters as it was offering a free franchise, of course this was important to me as I had no income at that time.
From the very first contact I made with Paul Swift, who is the head of the franchise, I was really impressed by his professionalism, politeness, and obvious dedication to providing a premier Pet Sitting service and franchise opportunity. Following a meeting with Paul at Head Office I immediately signed up to run Mansfield Pet Sitters in my local town. Paul helped me through every step of the way in setting up my new franchise and is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of running a business and the pet sitting industry. Paul is always available to assist you and answer any queries you may have, which prevents you
from making mistakes whilst growing your new business.
I have no hesitation in recommending the GB Pet Sitters franchise opportunity. With some hard work and motivation you too could be running a successful, prosperous franchise just like me, enjoying a wonderful job working with animals in the great outdoors, whilst earning a living and working for yourself, but with the full support and backing from Head Office”
