NAPPS Certified ~ What Does That Mean?




While searching the NAPPS Pet Sitter Locator to find a NAPPS pet sitter in your area, you may have noticed the blue NAPPS Certified icon above. 

What is NAPPS Certification? The certification program is a broad-range and in-depth self-paced course covering all topics relevant to pet sitting, including pet care, health, nutrition and behavior for a variety of animals. It also includes business development and management, pet safety and a complete pet first aid course. 

Certification acknowledges that the pet sitter is a serious professional who has obtained a level of expertise through personal study. Once the course of study has been completed and a passing score on the examination has been achieved, pet sitters and pet owners can be assured of a meaningful credential.
