Pet sitting services are not complicated especially not for you if you have a way with animals. If you are offering the service as an individual you might be called to homes to maybe feed the pets and attend to other needs they may have till the owner comes back.
The pet services could also require you to walk dogs and also offer playing services because they require the physical exercise as well. Starting a business in pet sitting service is not easy, the consumer needs to understand what you offer and it’s not just a matter of saying that you can offer the service.

You will have to invest in kennels during that moment when the owner decides to leave their dog with you when they are away. Ensure the kennels you get are of the right size as you do not want to make the dog feel like it has been confined in a small space. Comfort in a kennel is key, to make the space feel comfortable put accessories that the dog likes such as a blanket to lie on. A dog is part of a family if not the only family to some people so treat it like one.
