How do I add a New Pet Record?


Note: Before you can Add Pet Records, you need to have completed the tutorial section Tutorial: 4-1 Add Client Accounts.  

Your Pet Sitter Plus software will come pre-configured with several example client records for you to use during your coaching, and each of these clients also has an example pet record pre-configured.

Pet records are created for each pet and are "associated" with a client account. This is why during our training, we created our client record in Tutorial: 4-1 Add Client Accounts BEFORE we can add the pet record.


In this section you will create a pet record for one of your clients, and then you will learn about the aspects of pet management, such as updating the pet details and adding a vet.

Pet records contain information about individual pets including behavior, sex, breed, vet information, notes and more.

Once you have set up a new pet record and feel ready to learn more, you can read about the options available in Pet Sitter Plus in What is a Client Account? and in What is a Pet Record?

Navigation: Clients > Pets from the sub menu on the left
