“PSI’s Pet Sitter of the Year recipient serves as the ‘face’ of our industry and represents the high-caliber pet-care service providers that make up this industry,” said PSI President Beth Stultz-Hairston. “These top five finalists all possess the professionalism, pet-care knowledge, business savvy and commitment to customer service needed to thrive in the world of professional pet sitting, so narrowing the field down to one winner will be no easy task.”
