House sitting – look after a pet in their own environment.
Dog walking – get some exercise with beloved pets in Melbourne on your own terms!

Do I need an ABN to become a Floofers sitter?
For pet sitters Australia, the need for the ABN should be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Getting an ABN totally depends on your individual circumstances and whether your pet care income reaches a certain level.
In most cases, being a Floofers sitter will not require having an ABN unless you are able to make $18,200 a year or more from pet sitting. If you fall into this category, the Australian government will classify this work as more than a hobby and as a business.
We highly recommend discussing these queries with an accountant for peace of mind.
