Why do professional pet sitters choose PSI? Pet Sitters International is the world’s largest educational association for professional pet sitters. PSI members have access to the most extensive—and helpful—slate of benefits and affiliate programs in the industry. Because of the programs available as benefits of membership, your pet sitter is able to offer you cutting-edge technology and information for in-home pet care. And each of these programs has a direct positive influence on the quality of service that you and your pets receive from their PSI pet sitter.
Here’s what you get:
Confidence. Liability insurance and bonding policies available to pet sitters through their PSI membership let you know that you are dealing with a reliable, responsible business professional who cares about your home and your property as well as your pet.
Safety. Step One Survey and Castle Branch Inc's background screening services allow the pet-sitting business owner to screen prospective employees. This can help to ensure that any staff sitter who comes to your home is a legitimate, law-abiding, pet lover who shares your feelings for your family pets.
Convenience. Telecharge allows your pet sitter to accept payment by credit card or debit card, giving you, the pet owner, more payment options than ever before.
Knowledge. PSI’s Accreditation Program provides a complete pet-care education for professional pet sitters. It contains chapters to cover each facet of the business, including Pet Care, Health & Nutrition, Added Services and Business & Office Procedures. A PSI Accredited Pet Sitter brings a tremendous store of additional information to the task of caring for your pet—and that’s always a plus.
As a member of Pet Sitters International, your pet sitter is in a great position to look after your pet when you can’t be there.
