Pet Sitter Association Memberships

As professional pet sitters, we have access to various local, national, and international pet care associations that represent and elevate the pet care industry. Today, we’re breaking down our pet sitter association memberships and why we believe so strongly in them.

National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS)

The National Association of Professional Pet Sitters, also referred to as NAPPS, is the oldest and only nonprofit organization dedicated to representing the interests of professional pet sitters and pet sitting companies. NAPPS is a member-based organization that is run by volunteers from within the industry. It is dedicated to ‘raising and abiding by industry standards and supporting members with education, certification, and the resources to operate successful businesses.’ NAPPS welcomes pet sitters and pet parents to their community with Membership hovering around 2,200 pet sitters nationwide.

Pet Sitters International (PSI)

Pet Sitters International (PSI) is the world’s largest educational association for professional pet sitters. Pet Sitters International is dedicated to educating professional pet sitters and promoting, supporting, and recognizing excellence in pet sitting both in the United States and abroad.

With more than 4,000 professional pet-sitting members worldwide, PSI's member businesses “provide pet-care services for more than 800,000 caring and conscientious pet-owning households and generate more than $443 million in pet-sitting revenues annually, according to PSI’s latest State of the Industry Survey (2018).”

Why Membership Matters

As entrepreneurs, small business owners are often on their own when it comes to starting, growing, and running their businesses. Many entrepreneurs seek our memberships in industry organizations to ensure that they are operating within industry standards and with utmost credibility.

We are proud members of NAPPS and PSI because we believe that the resources they afford us are invaluable to maintaining the quality and standards our clients have grown accustomed to. Through these memberships, we have the opportunity to learn from industry leaders, connect with industry peers, and expand our knowledge of the pet care industry, pet behavior, and pet health and wellness. We also gain access to networking both in-person and online, a way to connect with like-minded individuals and others that are passionate about customer service and pet care.
