We have some exciting news to share! Move Your Doggie has been accepted for membership in Pet Sitters International (PSI), an organization of nearly 7,000 independent professional pet-sitting services throughout the United States, Canada and abroad. Founded in 1994, PSI is the world’s largest educational association for professional pet sitters.
With membership in PSI, Move Your Doggie has reinforced its dedication to offering professional, quality pet-care services and increasing their knowledge of the pet care industry. Move Your Doggie will continue to serve the Whitby and Oshawa, Durham Region and Surrounding area.
For pet owners, in-home pet sitting provides a unique alternative to boarding facilities—or relying on family or neighbors to check on pets. Pet sitters come to the home daily and animals are able to keep their regular routines for meals, walks, medication and one-on-one care and attention. Owners report that their pets experience less stress and adjust better to their owners’ absence when the pets remain in their normal environment.
As a PSI member, the Move Your Doggie team has access to important business tools and educational resources, including pet-sitter liability insurance, PSI’s Certificate Program, ongoing online training and PSI’s annual Pet Sitter World Educational Conference & Expo.
According to PSI President Patti Moran, more and more individuals are now advertising pet-sitting services, so it is important for pet owners to ensure they are choosing a qualified, professional pet sitter. “We encourage pet owners to only use the services of professional pet sitters, and to take advantage of the peace of mind that comes with using an insured and bonded PSI-member pet-sitting business,” Moran said.
