What our partners say about us

We launched Laura & Fernandos Pet Sitting business in Finchley in September 2016. This is a recent comment from them:

My partner and I had been wanting to set up our own business for a while and we researched lots of different approaches. We spoke to various start-ups and franchise companies, but never felt like we were being treated with much care or as an individual, it felt more like we were just business to them.

When we contacted Dan to enquire what the Pet Sitting company could offer us, we straight away knew that we were in good hands. We felt that we weren’t just a money making scheme, and that our opinions and needs for our living did matter. The fact that we could choose how to make our business work for us, made a huge difference.

The knowledge that Dan & Michael have is above and beyond what we could have imagined. From speaking with other pet carers & dog walkers who started their businesses by themselves, we can tell that we are doing everything right, first time. Others had to go by trial and error, a costly and time consuming procedure. Everything for us has worked, and we know that’s all down to the help and guidance from Dan & Michael.

Only 6 months in, and we can’t believe how successful we have become. We know that we couldn’t have grown so quick without all of their support and knowledge. We can’t wait to see what the next 6 months brings!”


We launched Kerry’s Pet Sitting business in Stevenage at the beginning of 2014. This is a recent comment from her:

I couldn’t be more grateful to Dan Martin and the Pet Sitting company for the opportunity to start Pet Sitting Stevenage nearly two years ago. The business has grown year on year and shows no sign of slowing down, and has provided a great income coupled with an amazing work life balance. The Pet Sitting company provided all the support and guidance to get me started and have supported me all the way through whenever I needed help. Dan keeps in touch regularly, is a great listener and always comes up with ideas and solutions whenever I have a problem.

I wouldn’t have a successful business without the help of Dan and the Pet Sitting company and would have no hesitation in recommending him and the Pet Sitting company brand to anyone who is looking for a lifestyle business that also provides a good income for them and their family.”

Hi Dan,

Just had a lady ring and say she picked me because of the very professional and wonderful website that was first on google!!! That’s all down to you and Michael. I don’t say it enough……THANK YOU!!!!!

We launched Caroline’s Pet Sitting business in Bedford in the summer of 2013. This is what she recently had to say about us:

Testimonial: I’ve always wanted to run and own a business, but never thought I could afford the start up costs or even had the confidence to do so. I’ve had pets all my life and I knew if I was going to run and own a business it was animals I wanted to work with, so I contacted the Pet Sitting company run by Daniel Martin and Michael Spencer and I have to say I’m so glad I did.

They were very professional, honest and trustworthy! Dan came to visit myself and my husband at our home address and explain what the Pet Sitting company offered and I have to say it was worth the money! We had a very long discussion and it went from there.

We paid a deposit and were kept informed every step of the way. We saw proofs of the business cards and leaflets and nothing was printed until we were happy with the outcome. It didn’t stop there I had one to one training, a training manual, telephone contact, and advised to go to establishments that would advertise my leaflets and business cards, which I did.

The website was fantastic, this was designed by Michael Spencer and I have to say I was over the moon with the end product. However If I needed to update anything e.g. photo’s, testimonials, or I had any ideas for a new page etc, Micheal would discuss this with me and add them to the website without delay.

If you are where I am last year June 2013 and are thinking whether Business in a Box is worth the cost, time and effort I can honestly say it is. I don’t regret anything. I started with around 2 clients in June 2013 and now have over 80 clients and I haven’t even been established a year yet.

Thank-you Dan and Michael!

A very happy client: caroline@petsittingbedford.co.uk

We launched Emma’s Pet Sitting business in Croxley at the beginning of 2013. Emma is a mum of two and with our guidance easily fits her pet sitting business in around family life. This is what she recently had to say about us:

Testimonial: Thanks so much to ‘The Pet Sitting Company’ for making my dream job turn into reality! The whole process of setting up couldn’t have been easier, as the experts do it all for you, so you don’t need to worry about a thing. My website looks amazing and I have been very impressed with how I’ve been promoted, and with the design and quality of my very own marketing materials. The help and support I have received along the way has been invaluable, and I now feel totally confident in running my own business. In fact, after just nine months, I’m in the very fortunate position of actually turning clients away!


We launched Derek’s Pet Sitting business in High Wycombe in the summer of 2015.  This is what he recently had to say about us:

The Pet Sitting company run by Dan and Michael have been amazing, when I made my initial enquiry they got back to me very promptly and they made sure that the business would work in my area, they are genuine and professional. Before choosing them I made enquiries with other companies, many still haven’t got back to me 12 months later, other companies charge double for less and take a high percentage of your earnings whereas the Pet Sitting company is great value for money.

They also make sure you are ready and able to take on the business. Setting up the business initially is scary but they help you every step of the way, if you follow their advice step by step you can’t go wrong.

The website is just phenomenal, professional looking and tailored to you, if you put in the work the website goes to the top of Google within months. In the meantime the marketing materials you receive are so professionally made and look expensive giving your business immediate credibility, not only that they organise the leaflet distribution, a newspaper article, business cards and everything you need, it’s so much better value and more than any other company. The professional forms they provide for client meetings blow peoples minds.

Level of support is first class, you get training and a training bible with expert advice.

My business has been running a year and I can’t believe how successful it is, I’m doing a job I love, making more money than any other job I’ve had, I was picking and choosing my jobs after just 3-4 months! It’s literally been a dream come true, Dan and Michael are always available for advice plus they are great guys who I instantly liked and felt at ease with.”
