Did you know that March acknowledges professional pet sitters with a whole week dedicated to them? Professional Pet Sitters Week takes place annually during the first full week of March, and was first introduced by Pet Sitters International (PSI) in 1995!
PSI explains on their website, “this annual observance honors professional pet-care providers, seeks to educate the pet-owning public about the advantages of professional in-home pet care and encourages pet-loving entrepreneurs to explore pet sitting as a viable career.”
Pet sitters certainly play an important part in our lives, ensuring our best friends are well taken care of while we’re away. We should always make sure they’re set up for success by providing them with everything they need to take care of our pets while we’re gone. To help with that, we’ve put together a handy checklist that can be referenced whenever you need to leave your furry friends in the care of a pet sitter. Check out our Pet Sitter Checklist below, and feel free to print out.
