Is Pet Sitting a Get Rick Quick Scheme?

Is this a get rich quick scheme?

Not usually. The average pet sitter will work hard and make a comfortable living. Business in some areas will be especially profitable, while others will be dismal. But the average sitters are somewhere in the middle.

And it will take time and effort to get there. Most pet sitters report starting to break even and then make a profit between 8-14 months into starting their business.

Those who invest more into inexpensive advertising at the beginning usually have a profitable client base faster than those who sit back and wait for clients to call.

Is this a scam?

We periodically get emails asking if the PUPS  membership is a scam since the price is so low.  We totally understand your concerns!

I think the best way for you to find out what PUPS is about is to encourage you to talk to some current member business owners directly.    I asked for volunteers, and got an overwhelming response in less than 24 hours.  Thanks to those members!

The owners below have graciously offered to field questions about "Is PUPS a scam and does membership really include all the items listed?".  Please see their websites for their most current contact information.  I have no idea what they will say to you, so you'll get a very honest and unbiased view of PUPS!
