Pet-Sitting Industry Bounces Back From Pandemic Slump, PSI Survey Finds

Results reveal promising business growth and optimistic outlook for industry.




(PRESS RELEASE) Just a few years after the COVID-19 pandemic dealt a financial blow to the professional pet sitting and dog walking industry, new data from Pet Sitters International (PSI) reveals that the average annual revenue for professional pet sitters has not only returned to pre-pandemic levels, but has surged past them.

PSI, the world’s leading educational association for professional pet-sitting and dog-walking business owners, surveyed its members this year to collect data about gross business revenues, types of services most offered, average charges for services and more.

According to PSI’s 2023 Post-Pandemic State of the Industry Survey results, the average gross revenue for PSI member businesses in the U.S. was $94,563 in 2022, compared to $68,699 in 2021 when member businesses were still impacted by COVID-related restrictions.

The association notes that average gross revenue in 2022 also reflects a 25 percent increase from the pre-pandemic average gross revenue of $75,869 in 2019, indicating that not only has the industry rebounded from the pandemic decline, PSI member businesses are more profitable than ever and have exceeded pre-COVID earnings.
