Before you start a legal business you can try this by advertising in the local newspaper, to see if it is anybody that needs a pet sitter if there is you will find out if you would like to work with this.

Start your business by becoming legal. Obtaining a business license doesn’t cost much and will give you a professional edge when getting new clients.
