May marks the 2nd annual Pet Sitter Safety Month
Pet Sitters International, the world's leading educational association for professional pet sitters, highlights the importance of promoting the safety of today's professional pet sitters and dog walkers.
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 (https://www.petsit.com/
To further assist professional pet sitters in taking charge of their safety, PSI's Pet Sitter Safety Month (http://www.petsit.com/
"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."
