Letter to Pet Owners Who Don't Use Professional Pet Sitters
As a Professional Pet Sitter it can sometimes be frustrating to hear the term "pet sitter" being used so loosely. Some people refer to their friends as the pet sitter, a family member, the child next door or the elderly woman across the street. The media does it too. You can call anybody a pet sitter, or anyone can put an ad online calling themselves a pet sitter, but these are not Professional Pet Sitters. There's a big difference.
Pet Sitters International (PSI), the world's largest education association for professional pet sitters recently published an Open Letter to Pet Owners Who Don't Use Professional Pet Sitters. I applaud their message.
