Our Association is unique. As the largest Pet Care organisation in the UK we are involved primarily with the proper care of Pets and Property and we set the standards for the Pet and House sitting industries. We also represent our members at Local and National Government level, with particular interest in all legislation which affects the Petcare Industry and Animal Welfare in general. Over the past 18 years we have registered more than 8,000 petsitters throughout the country. Members offer a range of caring petsitting services while owners are away on holiday or at work etc.
Basic services are:
Firstly, Home Boarding; this means that you take your dogs/pets to the sitter where they will receive individual care and attention with all the comforts of home. (Petsitters will normally care for all domestic pets including small animals and birds).
Secondly, House/Pet sitting; this means that the sitter goes to your home and looks after your house and your pets. This is very useful for those who do not want to leave their home unattended, or for those who have a lot of pets.
Finally, Daycare for all pets, Home visits, or Dogwalking which is self explanatory and ideal for those who are out at work all day and need someone to visit their home during the day and to care for, feed or walk their pets; or to take their pets to the sitters home for a daycare service. Many members also offer extra services such as house checks, plant/garden care, mail forwarding etc. (Please note that Daycare services are NOT suitable if dogs are subsequently going to be left alone at night).
Members are REGISTERED and INSURED, and are required to abide by our Code of Practice and Terms and Conditions.
