Close To Home Pet Services llc. – Certified Professional Pet Sitters Accreditation Completed 3/2020!


We did a thing! We are now Certified Professional Pet Sitters! This is a proud accomplishment and not an easy one.

We are members of the Pet Sitters International (PSI) Organization and now Certified Professional Pet Sitters.

 Pet Sitters International (PSI) is the world’s largest educational association for professional pet sitters. PSI’s focus is promoting, supporting and recognizing quality in pet sitting.

Why does the certification matter?

*Becoming a CPPS-Certified Professional Pet Sitter® allows you to:


  • Demonstrate your competency in the core skills and knowledge base professional pet sitters should possess.
  • Earn formal recognition for your commitment to excellence in pet sitting.
  • Raise awareness among your clients and the general public about what it takes to be a qualified professional pet sitter.
  • Support standards in our largely unregulated industry and promote professionalism
