Member benefits keep expanding as we add to our portfolio of tools

At the Association of Professional Dog Walkers & sitters we dont like to stand still when it comes to providing our members with aids to help with the running of their dog walking or sitting businesses. We like to be innovative and forward looking and we are always on the look out for the next tool we can add for our members.
We are driven by you the members to make sure that we are the best we can be and in turn you have an association that thinks like you. We are here to listen and adapt as our industry changes.

Since our inception we have been driven by our members and have adapted and overcome to be the best in the industry.

Do you really need to be a member of a dog walking or sitting association? Well the simple answer is no you dont, however there are many benefits to doing so. We believe that just being a member of an association has a positive impact on prospective customers and by being a member and agreeing to the terms set out in your membership the customer knows what they can expect from you. There are also the benefits of having access to all the forms, contracts and apps that become part of your membership.
