A little bit about National Petsitters

Our Association is unique. As the largest Pet Care organisation in the UK we set the standards for the Pet and House sitting industries. We also represent our members at Local and National Government level, with particular interest in all legislation which affects the Petcare Industry and Animal Welfare in general. As the Trade Association for the Industry we are involved primarily with the proper care of Pets and Property and our aim is to set and maintain standards accordingly. We are funded entirely by subscriptions and memberships which we try to keep as low as possible to the benefit of all members and subscribers. All members are Registered and Insured. Over the past 18 years we have registered more than 8,000 petsitters throughout the country. Members offer a range of caring petsitting services while owners are away on holiday or at work etc. Services include: Homeboarding for all pets, House sitting, Day Care / Daily Visits, Cat Visiting, Dog Walking, Small Pet / Bird Care etc.
