Pet Sitting Services
* Holidays - Payments are paid directly to pet sitter as a bonus for being willing to work on a Holiday. 1st Rate Pet Services does pay this as a paid bonus and it is recorded as taxable income but we do what we can to make it worth while for the employee and this way our clients can be sure they are still getting the best service possible and be worry free on this special day(s).
