"When I joined the Association of professional dog walkers and sitters I found the contracts and forms to be very helpful and saved me a lot of time. The website is very professional and informative". Sarah S

The Association of Professional Dog Walkers and sitters™ was started by a small group of likeminded dog walkers, who believed they were underrepresented as professional dog walkers and sitters. Because we came from a dog walking background, we have been able to tailor the association around our members. Since our inception we have continued to expand by giving our members what they need at a low cost point.
