NAPPS is the ultimate source for pet sitters who want to take their business to new levels and for pet parents looking for trustworthy care for their pets when they are away from home.

What makes NAPPS unique? We are the only non-profit national organization for pet sitters. We are member-run and member-driven, responding and adapting to your needs.

NAPPS provides members with continuing education opportunities, a certification program, free business forms, discounted insurance and other valuable benefits.

We help pet parents, too, with our Pet Sitter Locator and tips on everything from hiring a pet sitter to pet health and safety.
