First introduced by Pet Sitters International (PSI) in 1995, Professional Pet Sitters Week (PPSW), celebrated annually the first full week in March, honors the hard-working pet-care professionals who care for the world's companion animals when their owners are away.
The next PPSW will be celebrated March 1-7, 2015.
This week acknowledges the dedication of these professional pet-care givers to provide unparalleled, quality care to their pet-owning clients.
PPSW also raises awareness about the benefits of in-home pet care and the viability of professional pet sitting as a career.
Each year PSI celebrates the week with special media announcements, membership offers and new resources for current PSI members. PSI members are encouraged to celebrate and PSI provides with members with customizable media announcements and celebration ideas.
