Ultimate Pet Services and Pet Sitters International are educating owners about reputable, professional pet sitters through the Get A Real Pet Sitter campaign.
Over 60 percent of households own at least one pet. Ultimate Pet Services warns pet owners against settling for non-professional pet carers or non-reputable careers that are more concerned with earning cash than in actually caring for pets.
Ultimate Pet Services is an insured, bonded business operating along The Grand Strand, with a license for Myrtle Beach. It is a member of Pet Sitters International (PSI), the world’s leading educational association for professional pet sitters, and has the Certified Professional Pet Sitter (CPPS) designation.
PSI and Ultimate Pet Services advise pet owners to find out whether a potential pet sitter meets the following criteria:
***Has the proper city or state business license.
***Is insured and bonded.
***Has proof of a clear criminal history.
***Has client references.
***Will agree to pet-sitting services agreement or contract.
***Is a Certified Professional Pet Sitter and/or has participated in pet-care training and first aid.
***Is a member of a professional and educational association (e.g. Pet Sitters International).
