Check with your insurance provider to see if bonding is included in your business coverage. The difference between being bonded and insured is that bonding covers a pet sitting business over the lack of an employee's completion of a job or theft that occurs on the job. Insurance covers property damages that may occur. Specify to your insurance agent that you need to be bonded as well as insured in your coverage.


Join a pet sitting organization, such as the National Association of Pet Sitters or Pet Sitters International. Becoming a member of one of these associations will greatly reduce the cost of insurance and bonding for your pet sitting service. Make sure you sign up for bonding and insurance as a member of the organization.


Get a job with an already established pet sitting company. The company will do a thorough background check on you. The reason they do this is so you can become bonded to do services for the company. All you have to do is pass the background and reference check and the company will take care of the rest. Becoming bonded this way only works as long as you are an employee of the company, not for any independent pet sitting jobs you may do.
