New! 3-Week Pet Sitter Certificate Program

Pet sitting is a valuable service to families that need to be away from their pets for an extended period. Having a trusted, caring person come into a home contributes to piece of mind, allowing clients to leave for well-deserved vacations, or reduce worry for prolonged, out-of-home medical emergencies. A Pet Sitting Certificate provides emergency care skills to identify and treat common health programs and behaviours in animals. Successful completion of this program would be an asset to inspire peace of mind and assure potential clients of your professionalism. Learn more about the Pet Sitter Certificate Program.
