Professional Pet Sitters Week was introduced by Pet Sitters International (PSI) in 1995. PSI is the world’s largest educational association for professional pet sitters.
There are now more households with dogs (43 million) than children (38 million); and the need for pet-care services is at an all-time high.
Since 1994 PSI’s membership has grown to nearly 7,000 independent professional pet-sitting businesses that service more than 740,000 pet-owning households each year.
“Professional pet sitting has become an important service industry in the past 15 years. Many professional pet sitters put in long hours, seven days a week, 365 days a year, so they can provide personal in-home care for pets of all kinds,” says Patti Moran, president of PSI. “The tireless efforts of these small business owners and their staffs to provide optimal care to pets and their owners truly deserve recognition.”
At Home Pet Sitters has been a member of PSI since 2002 and offers services to pet owners in Savannah, Richmond Hill and Pooler, GA.
For pet owners, at-home pet sitting provides a unique alternative to boarding facilities or having to rely on family and neighbors to check in on their pets. Pet sitting goes beyond simply feeding and caring for pets. Professional pet-sitting services often offer dog walking, care of special needs pets, pet transportation services and pooper-scooper services, in addition to basic pet care.
This year, At Home Pet Sitters plans on making the most of Professional Pet Sitters Week by giving the pets on their visits extra time on walks and by recognizing their employees for the outstanding job they do every day..
“We continually strive to provide the best quality service to our pet-owning clients. It’s important to see the industry we love recognized on a global scale,” Denham adds.
