Vote for NAPPS Business of the Year

National Association of Professional Pet SittersThe National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping pet owners find suitable pet sitters for their pets and helping pet sitters become better at providing their pet care services. Pet owners want nothing but the best for their pets and can find pet sitters for their pets instead of leaving them in a kennel. The pet gets to stay at home with a professional taking care of him, and the owner has the peace of mind that her pet is receiving the care it needs. NAPPS helps the sitter and owner find each other.

Knowing that a pet sitter is certified with NAPPS assures the pet owner is leaving their pet in good hands. Certification requires that the sitter is knowledgeable in pet nutrition, pet care, health, first aid, and behavior. It insures that the sitter knows the value and importance of business development and management, and integrity. Many dog walking services are members of NAPPS as well.

When you find your dog walking service and can rest assured that your pet is receiving professional and loving care when you’re away, do your walker a favor; nominate him for the NAPPS Business of the Year Award (pdf on NAPPS website). This prestigious award goes to the pet sitter / pet care business that is knowledgeable, shows good business skills, is innovative, dependable, and promotes NAPPS and the standard of excellence that is expected by NAPPS.

The winner of this award receives transportation, lodging, and registration at the NAPPS Annual Conference, registration to the Saturday night event of the Annual Conference, and many other valuable prizes. The runner-ups also receive valuable prizes.

If you think your dog walker or pet sitter is the best of the best, give this devoted person the recognition he or she deserves: a nomination for the NAPPS Business of the Year Award. Share the experience of peace of mind that comes with having a good sitter or walker with other pet owners in your area.
