We have some exciting news to share... We got word today that An passed the final exam for Pet Sitters International's CPPS program!
Pet Sitters International is one of the world's largest organizations for professional pet sitters, dedicated to educating professional pet sitters and promoting, supporting and recognizing excellence in pet sitting. You may have found this site by using their Pet Sitter Locator, a great tool to find PSI members, see who's bonded and insured, has passed a background check and earned the CPPS credential. We're proud to check all four boxes. Our next goal is to get trained in Pet First Aid through PetTech, we'll write more on that later.
In PSI's own words, "the Certificate in Professional Pet Sitting Program was created to promote high industry standards, and provides a continuing education curriculum to keep certificate-holding pet sitters at the forefront of modern pet care practices. The curriculum includes topics on pet care, health & nutrition, business & office procedures and more. The coursework was developed with input from the most knowledgeable professionals in the pet care industry, and is designed to provide a complete and well-rounded educational experience for a professional pet sitter. Graduates are knowledgeable in the care of a wide variety of species — from cats and dogs to reptiles, amphibians and more. A graduate also knows how to run an efficient, effective pet-sitting business."
We are confident that completing this coursework has made us better pet sitters, and look forward to many more years of providing our clients with excellence
in pet care. Kitty purrs and wagging tails are our best reward!
