KING, N.C. - April 30, 2018 - PRLog -- Educating professional pet sitters and dog walkers on important safety precautions and tips will be at the forefront of Pet Sitters International's efforts this May, which marks the second annual Pet Sitter Safety Month™.

Pet Sitters International (PSI), the world's largest educational association for professional pet sitters, created Pet Sitter Safety Month to highlight the importance of promoting safe practices for today's professional pet sitters and dog walkers, who are in higher demand than ever before.

"When I began pet sitting in 1983, the safety of myself and my staff pet sitters was a major concern—and when I founded PSI in 1994, that concern carried over to our pet-sitting members," said Patti J. Moran, PSI's president and founder.

"During Pet Sitter Safety Month, I encourage pet sitters to review PSI's safety tips, as well as their policies and procedures, to ensure that they—and the pets in their care—remain healthy, happy and safe," Moran continued.

Each week in May, PSI will highlight a different safety-related topic for pet sitters, with posts on The PSI Blog and PSI's social media accounts.

In observance of Pet Sitter Safety Month, PSI will also be offering a 50 percent discount on its newly released online certificate program, Disaster Planning for Professional Pet Sitters (, throughout the month. Co-created with Denise Fleck, Pet Safety Crusader™ and author of My Pet & Me Guide to Disaster PAWparedness, this online certificate program provides professional pet sitters with need-to-know information to ensure that they and the pets in their care remain safe during any potential disaster situation.

To further assist professional pet sitters in taking charge of their safety, PSI's Pet Sitter Safety Month ( section on includes a listing of safety tips and resources for professional pet sitters. The site will address a variety of topics—from the types of pet-sitting assignments pet sitters should turn down to tips for preventing dog bites.

"More than three decades ago when I started pet sitting, there were no pet-sitting specific resources available to me," Moran said. "That's why it has always been so important to me that PSI provides members with easy-to-access tools that enable them to provide excellent pet-care services with confidence."
