2. Winter Is Coming To A Close

If you haven’t already written about the cold and snowy weather last month, now you can! February is prime real estate to give your clients some helpful cold weather tips for their pets. You can also discuss how to get ready for Spring if you’re the proactive type 🙂 Here are some ideas…

  • Can snow salt hurt my dog’s paws?

If you live somewhere that’s very cold, most of your clients are likely not taking their dog outside much during the Winter. It’s the perfect time to talk about indoor games and activities to keep pets active and engaged. Maybe February is a little warmer where you are and people are taking their dogs outside. In that case, you can talk about the best hiking trails, outdoor games, etc.

4 October Pet Sitting Blog Or Video Ideas

 

Happy October! It’s finally starting to feel a lot more like Fall. The leaves are changing, the weather is getting colder, and Halloween is coming up. As a business owner, this month is a total gold mine in terms of content creation. I mean, who doesn’t want to look at photos of dogs in costumes?? Let’s a take a look at a number of pet sitting October blog or video ideas that you can use this month…

4 October Pet Sitting Blog Or Video Ideas

 

1. Holidays – Halloween!

As I mentioned earlier, Halloween is one of the best holidays for marketing your pet business. People absolutely love to see dogs, cats, and other furry critters dressed up in spooky costumes. Alternatively, many people aren’t aware of the dangers that chocolate and candy can pose to our fur-babies, so Halloween can be a great time for teaching. Here are some blog or video ideas around Halloween:

  • Should I Take My Dog Trick Or Treating With Me On Halloween?
  • Top 10 Spookiest Costumes For Your Dog On Halloween
  • What Happens If My Dog Eats Chocolate On Halloween?
  • How To Reduce My Dog’s Doorbell Anxiety On Halloween

The list goes on and on!

 

2. It’s Starting To Feel A Lot Like Fall

Weather is a great topic to write or talk about, because many pet owners are not too sure how to care for their pets when the weather changes. Since October is typically cold and windy, you can write some blogs  (or make videos) educating your clients on how they can care for their pets during the Autumn Season:

  • What Should I Do About My Dog’s Fall Allergies?
  • Can Pumpkin Be Harmful For My Dog?
  • Is It Safe To Walk My Dog At Night?
  • What Should I Do If My Dog Gets Fleas/Ticks?

These are just a few ideas, but if you think on it a little while I am sure you’ll come up with more interesting questions worth answering! If you have a good question, research it and then blog about it!

3. Fall Games & Activities

If you live somewhere that’s very hot, most of you clients were likely not taking their dog outside much during the Summer. Now that it’s starting to cool off, it’s the perfect time to start getting Fido back into an exercise routine!

Try searching the Internet for games that dogs and their owners can play outside, such as hide-n-go seek with a treat. Compile a list! You can even write or talk about the best hiking trails in your area, outdoor pet-friendly cafe’s, or dog parks. The list is truly endless.

4. Don’t Forget About The Pet Educational Themes Of The Month

  • Adopt-A-Dog Month: Discuss the considerations for adopting a new dog or adding a new animal to the home.
  • Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month: Talk about the benefits of rescuing a shelter dog, or other ways people can help even if they can’t adopt.
  • National Animal Safety and Protection Month: Educate your audience about the different ways they can ensure their pets safety.

I hope these October pet sitting blog or video ideas are helpful to you and are able to give you some inspiration. If you are a pet sitting business that DOESN’T have a blog – it’s never too late to start.

4 November Pet Sitting Blog Or Video Ideas

The Fall season is coming to an end, and Winter is quickly approaching as we enter into November. So what does this mean for you as a business owner? Well, it means Thanksgiving and Black Friday are coming up, the weather is starting to change, and people will be taking a number of holiday trips! The opportunities to market and gain new clients are endless. But how will these potential clients find you? Through your blog of course! Read on for a November pet sitting blog ideas I have compiled in order to drive traffic to your blog and appeal to a new base.

1. Holidays – Thanksgiving/Black Friday!

Many people go out of town for Thanksgiving weekend, since it’s a four day weekend for most. This means that there are a pool of potential clients in your area that will be looking for a solution to watch their pets when they’re away. That’s where you come in! You can write or talk about a number of Thanksgiving topics including:

  • Thanksgiving foods you can/can not feed your pets
  • Why your cat/dog is thankful for you/your pet sitter
  • Why pet owners are thankful for their pets
  • Hot Black Friday deals for pet toys/products

The list goes on and on!

 

2. Say Goodbye To Autumn, & Hello To Winter!

Weather is a great topic to write or talk about, since many pet owners are unsure on how to handle their pets in certain climates. A lot of questions arise when dealing with snowfall and below zero temperatures. Consider writing or talking about ideas such as:

  • What temperature is the ‘cut-off’ for walking my dog?
  • Should dogs wear snow booties while walking?
  • Does salt hurt my dog’s paws?
  • What happens if my dog eats snow?

These are just a few ideas, but brainstorm a little and you’ll be sure to come up with a lot of compelling questions worth answering!

 

3. Winter Games & Activities

Admittedly, there’s not a whole lot of games that dogs can play outside in freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall (at least not ones that are very long!). But don’t let this stop you from writing or talking about other activities pet owners can do with their animals indoors while they’re waiting for the weather to warm up!

Try searching the Internet for games that dogs and their owners can play in the snow, such as hide-n-go seek with a treat. Compile a list! Or, write or talk about some indoor activities pet owners can engage in with their dogs and cats such as snuggling, watching movies, playing with indoor toys, taking naps, and more.

Are there restaurants in your area that pet-friendlyndly? Make a list, describe each one, and use it as a blog! You can also do this for hiking/walking trails and stores (preferably ones with Black Friday deals!).

 

4. Consider The Pet Education Themes Of The Month

DogTipper.com is a great resource for learning all about monthly themes. To save you some time, here are the themes that you can write or talk about for November:

  • Adopt A Senior Pet Month (ASPCA). Write a blog or make a video about why adopting senior pets is worth it!
  • Pet Cancer Awareness Month. Make a blog or video about early cancer warning signs/symptoms, treatment methods, prevention tools, and more.
  • Pet Diabetes Month. Write a blog or make a video about early diabetes warning signs/symptoms, treatment methods, prevention tools, and more.
  • National Dog Show (American Kennel Club). Broadcast yearly on Thanksgiving! Be sure to tell your clients where/when/how they can watch!
  • National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week (The US Humane Society) – November 5th – 11th. You can talk about the benefits that shelters provide to homeless animals, and why it’s always better to adopt and not shop!
  • National Take A Hike Day (November 17th). Encourage your clients to take some time to take their dog on a hike! Be sure to give them a choice of some stellar local hiking trails.

I hope these November pet sitting blog or video ideas are helpful to you and are able to give you some inspiration.

4 September Pet Sitting Blog Or Video Ideas

Summer is coming to an end and we are quickly approaching the Fall season. But what does this mean for you as a business owner? Well, it means the kids are going back to school, Labor Day is coming up, and there are numerous opportunities for you get new clients. However, they will never know you exist unless you BLOG or VIDEO – it is a necessity! I know that coming up with blog/video topics is difficult, so I’ve compiled a list of intriguing September pet sitting blog ideas that will help your website shine on Google!

4 September Pet Sitting Blog Or Video Ideas

september pet sitting blog ideas

1. Holidays – Labor Day!

Labor Day can mean two good things for you as a business owner.

  • The kids are going back to school.
  • People will be taking trips

Many people in your area might be trying to figure out what they are going to do with their dogs now that their kids will be gone all day. Why not answer their question by writing a blog or making a video? Discuss different pet care options where you live and make your business shine by showing (not telling) why your service is #1.

Also, consider writing about Labor Day. Write a blog or make a video about different events going on around town or ways people can celebrate with their families. It may get your clients’ thinking about taking a trip if they weren’t already, and sure enough, they’ll need you to watch the dog – score!

 

2. Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!

The weather is a great topic to blog or video about because it’s very broad and there are so many different directions you can go.

September can be pretty rainy, so why not blog or video about it? Ask and answer questions such as:

  • Is it safe to walk a dog in the rain?
  • Should dogs wear raincoats or rain boots when walking in the rain?
  • Can dogs get sick walking in the rain?

The questions are endless and will engage your audience to click and find out the answer.

 

3. Autumn Activities

Changing of the seasons allows pet owners and their pets alike to engage in activities they might not have been able to do the season before.

For instance, make a list of the top hiking trails in your area with the most scenic view? Summer is too hot for hiking, plus the changing of the leaves makes great scenery. Write about it and get your audience thinking!

Or maybe blog/video about some of the best games to play with your dog outside during Autumn. Other topics could include a list of the top dog parks in the area, dog-friendly restaurants, or other pet-friendly events that may be going on around you.

 

4. Educational Pet Themes Of The Month

Did you know that every month has a specially designated theme that has to do with pets and animals? September is:

  • Happy Healthy Cat Month
  • National Disaster Preparedness Month

Take these topics and run with them. Write about helpful tips cat owners can use to ensure their cat is both happy and healthy. Or take the second topic and describe how dog owners and their dogs can be prepared in case of an emergency.

Additionally, there are certain pet oriented days in September that you can write time-sensitive blogs/videos about such as:

  • National Hug Your Hound Day (2nd Sunday In September)
  • Responsible Dog Ownership Day (September 19th)
  • National Dog Week (Last full week in September)

 

I hope these September pet sitting blog ideas are helpful to you and are able to give you some inspiration. If you are a pet sitting business that DOESN’T have a blog – it’s never too late to start. If you’re still not convinced, check out these blogs I wrote on Why Should I Blog For My Pet Sitting Business and Why You Should Care About Your Holiday Cover Profiles And Blogging.
