Introduced by PSI in 1995, Professional Pet Sitters Week (PPSW) is an effort to educate pet owners about the advantages of professional in-home pet care.
“In the last two decades, the demand for professional pet sitting has greatly increased,” said Patti Moran, PSI president. “In turn, we have seen pet-loving entrepreneurs from a variety of backgrounds transition to a rewarding pet-sitting career.”
Wag Wagon Pet Services has been a member of PSI since 2011 and offers services to pet owners in Kittery, Kittery Point and York, Maine as well as Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
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, Tammi Searle of Wag Wagon Pet Services plans on making the most of Professional Pet Sitters Week by donating 10% of profits and 100% of all tips for the week to the NHSPCA in Stratham, New Hampshire.
“I am continually striving to provide the best quality service to my pet-owning clients and wish to express gratitude to my clients and the community that supports my business.” Searle adds.
