Local Pet-Sitting Business takes part in Professional Pet Sitters Week, March 2-8, 2014.
For Your Spot, LLC encourages pet owners and pet lovers alike to celebrate the 20th annual Professional Pet Sitters Week, March 2-8, 2014. Professional Pet Sitters Week (PPSW) was introduced by Pet Sitters International (PSI) in 1995.
This international week of recognition seeks to educate pet owners about the advantages of using professional pet sitters, as opposed to the fly-by night caretaker. For pet owners who want the best for their pets, hiring a professional to care for their pets, is a wonderful, worry-free option.
This year, PSI member business For Your Spot, LLC is commemorating Professional Pet Sitters Week by offering new clients who schedule between March 2-8, 2014, 10% off their first appointment.
“For Your Spot, LLC is committed to providing the best quality service to our pet-owning clients and is excited to celebrate this week that recognizes the pet-sitting industry on a global scale,” says Jennifer Stevenson, owner of For Your Spot, LLC.
With pet ownership at a record high, the need for pet-care services is greater than ever before.
“Professional pet sitting has become an important service industry in the past 20 years. With the growth of the pet-sitting industry, pet owners do not have to rely on untrained or unwilling friends, family members or neighbors when travel or long work hours keep them from their pets,” says Patti Moran, president of PSI. “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.”
“These businesses owners and their staffs truly deserve recognition for the optimal pet care and tireless efforts they provide year-round,” added Moran.
PSI is the world’s largest educational association for professional pet sitters. 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.
For Your Spot, LLC has been a member of PSI since2007 and offers services to pet owners in Sussex County, Delaware.
For pet owners, at-home pet sitting provides a unique alternative to boarding facilities or having to rely on family and neighbors care for their pets. Pet sitting goes beyond simply feeding and checking on pets. Professional pet-sitting services often include dog walking, care of special needs pets, pet transportation services and pooper-scooper services, in addition to basic pet care.
