King, N.C. (PRWEB) January 23, 2014 -- As part of its ongoing efforts to provide professional pet sitters with the tools and resources they need to succeed in the ever-growing pet-sitting industry, Pet Sitters International (PSI) has launched the Prepared Pet-Care Professional member series, available exclusively to PSI member pet sitters.
PSI, the world’s largest education association for professional pet sitters, created this new public- relations series to offer its nearly 7,000 member businesses a quick and easy way to share important pet-related information with their pet-sitting clients and local communities.
With pet ownership at an all-time high, professional pet sitters, now more than ever before, have to be ready to field questions on a variety of pet-related topics from local pet owners.
“Their specialized knowledge and training are characteristics that set professional pet sitters apart from other pet-care providers,” explained PSI President Patti J. Moran. “PSI’s professional pet-sitting members are often go-to resources for pet-care information in their local communities.”
Each quarter, PSI will release a new topic in the Prepared Pet-Care Professional PSI Member Series. For each topic, PSI members will have access to educational and promotional materials that can be customized and shared, including:
• a customizable press release to share with local media
• customizable client leave-behinds, pamphlets or flyers
• properly-sized, ready-to-use images to share on social media, along with suggested social media posts
“By offering up-to-date, relevant pet-care information in an easy-to-share format, PSI’s new series will better equip member pet sitters to educate local pet owners on important pet-care issues,” added Moran.
Topics addressed by PSI’s Prepared Pet-Care Professional PSI Member Series include:
• children and pets,
• pet poison prevention,
• disaster preparedness for pet owners and
• end-of-life issues for pets and their owners.
Individuals interested in learning more about PSI or pet sitting as a career are encouraged to take advantage of a free membership preview. To find your local PSI pet sitter, search PSI’s Official Pet Sitter Locator free-of-charge at http://www.petsit.com/locate.
