Professional Pet Sitting and Poochy Doos, LLC
This week has found The Poochy celebrating the professional pet sitting industry with its chums over at Pet Sitters International, Inc. (PSI). Today kicks off the 22nd Annual Professional Pet Sitters Week! Although we don’t have a water cooler, we’ve all been gathering around our respective water bowls and chatting about the professional pet sitting industry over Milkbones® and donuts.
We’ve all decided, with a collective glow, that the future for pets is bright! In an age where “Adopt Don’t Shop” has become a National sentiment, pet owners are becoming savvy consumers when it comes to making intelligent pet care choices. With the health and happiness of their furry family members in the balance, pet owners are scrutinizing the qualifications and care models of pet care companies, like never before.
This question of care looms large in the face of pet tragedies and deaths that keep surfacing across the country. People, attracted by cheap prices found on pet sitting listing websites, are learning firsthand that sometimes you only have one chance to make the right decision. I mean, what could go wrong? Pet sitting listing websites require years of experience, interview, vet and reference check all those thousands of online caregivers – right?
In the midst of all the madness, PSI is more relevant than ever before. Under the leadership of its Marketing and Communications Director, Beth Stultz, PSI recently launched a new marketing campaign called “Get A Real Pet Sitter,” to educate pet owners on the importance of hiring only professional pet sitters. In a recent press release, Patti Moran, Founder of PSI, commented: “Pet owners shouldn’t assume that just because a pet sitter is listed on an online directory—even if it’s a nationally publicized site—that it is a legitimate, qualified pet sitting business. Anyone can post a profile advertising pet sitting services, so it’s important for pet owners to take a closer look to ensure they are hiring a ‘real pet sitter’ to care for their pets.”
Poochy Doos, LLC has been at the forefront of this issue and indeed was asked to comment on a survey conducted by PSI. Said Beth Stultz, “As I’ve networked with the owners of Poochy Doos, LLC, over the past several months, I’ve been impressed by not only their commitment to their pet sitting business but also by their commitment to promoting pet advocacy. Poochy Doos’ efforts to educate pet owners and fellow pet sitters on the risks of using listing websites and similar business models is a testament to their desire to promote responsible pet care and increase professionalism in the industry.”
That we’re as successful as we are is likewise a testament to the clients we service. Our future is extremely bright and promising because our community really gets the importance of good care. What we choose for our pets is a direct reflection of how we value them. We live healthier lives because of our pets. Pet sitting and dog walking is no longer a status- thing for the eccentric or wealthy – it’s a daily life-thing, for people who love their pets.
Please join Poochy Doos, LLC and Pet Sitters International in advocating only the very best in professional pet sitting for your furry friends! Please refer The Poochy to all your family and friends who have pets! From daily dog walking to a late night cuddly visit on Christmas Eve, we’re “your best friend’s friend!”
