East Greenville Pet Sitting Business Owner Earns Certified Professional Pet Sitter Designation

        Pet Sitters International (PSI) has announced that Erla Schmitt, owner of Pals At Home Professional Pet Care in East Greenville,  has earned the designation of Certified Professional Pet Sitter (CPPS).

        The CPPS designation indicates that an individual has acquired the knowledge necessary to make vital assessments on pet health and nutrition, canine and feline behavior, separation anxiety, pet loss and more. A CPPS designee is also equipped, as a business owner, to make decisions on customer service, employee hiring and safety.

        According to Ellen Price, PSI's academic manager, the designation is achieved after completing extensive coursework and successfully passing a comprehensive final exam on 39 sections of instructional material.

        "A PSI Certified Professional Pet Sitter brings valuable knowledge to the care of companion animals," Price said. "A pet owner who relies on a Certified Professional Pet Sitter will receive top-quality pet care. The curriculum's in-depth material also assures that a pet sitter is highly capable of making accurate judgments and quick decisions in an emergency."

        Schmitt's commitment to her business and clients led her to pursue this designation.

        "As a pet sitter, I value continuing education that allows me to offer reliable service to the pets entrusted to my care," Schmitt said. "Becoming a PSI Certified Professional Pet Sitter demonstrates that I am an animal steward committed to delivering excellent service."

        Professional pet sitting is one of the fastest-growing small business fields in the U.S., and PSI's Certification Program is the only program in the industry tailored specifically for professional pet sitters. For more information about the program, visit
