March 1st full week - Professional Pet Sitters Week
Pet Sitters International, the world’s largest educational association for professional pet sitters, will celebrate Professional Pet Sitters Week during the first full week in March.
For nearly one million discriminating pet owners in the United States, Canada and abroad, there is no substitute for professional in-home pet care. Professional pet sitters offer a unique and beneficial alternative to using boarding facilities or having to rely on family and friends for quality pet care. Because many professional pet sitters receive specialized training in areas such as animal behavior, emergency preparedness, pet first aid, and other important skill sets, pet owners can leave their homes for business or pleasure with the knowledge that their beloved pets are in safe, capable and caring hands.
Recognize the pet sitters who make in-home pet care possible this week.
