Downingtown, PA (PRWEB) May 03, 2012
Nearly 73 million households in the United States own at least one pet, and pet owners are projected to spend 53 billion dollars this year, according to an American Pet Products survey. Sleepy Paws Pet Care, a Pennsylvania based pet sitting and dog walking company, has launched a unique new licensing program for entrepreneurs looking to capitalize on this trend. The Sleepy Paws Pet Care licensing program gives people the chance to start a pet sitting or dog walking business with minimal working capital required and no upfront fees.
“People love their pets and, because of this, the pet sitting industry has thrived, even during the recent recession,” said Dave Westwood, Vice President of Marketing and Licensing of Pet and Home LLC. “The Sleepy Paws Pet Care licensing program gives someone starting out in the pet sitting industry the tools and resources needed to start and run a pet sitting or dog walking business. This program is also ideal for the local pet sitter or dog walker who has a love for animals, but could use help with marketing and branding to grow their business.”
