  • Super Hero Sitters: Gus Elfving

    Posted March 7, 2011 By in APSE News and Events, Pet Owners, Pet Sitters With | 1 Comment
    This episode is part 1 of 6 in the Super Hero Sitters series in celebration of Professional Pet Sitters Week.

    Gus Elfving of Pet PeepsMeet Gus Elfving.

    Gus is the Principal and Pack Leader of Pet Peeps located in Washington, DC.

    From the moment you hear Gus speak about his journey into the pet sitting industry, it becomes quite clear that he is passionate, genuine and quite determined to provide his clients with unparalleled service.

    It’s no surprised that Pet Peeps was named by readers of Washingtonian Magazine as one of the best pet sitting and dog walking companies in town.

    In this episode of Super Hero Sitters, Gus recounts the story of one snowy winter afternoon that he’ll never forget.

  • Super Hero Sitters: The 6-Part Series for Professional Pet Sitters Week

    Posted March 6, 2011 By in APSE News and Events, Pet Owners, Pet Sitters With | No Comments

    child and dogIn honor of Professional Pet Sitters Week (March 6 – 12, 2011) we are spotlighting the professional pet sitter in a way not often seen.

    Just like the fire fighter who is expected to run into a burning building to save lives without a second thought…

    Or the emergency room doctor who drops everything when the unexpected calls and has but one goal in mind….

    The professional pet sitter, too, is a special hero.

    Super Hero Sitters: Real Pet Sitting Stories About Life, Liberty and The Pursuit Of… Happy Pets

    Each day throughout Professional Pet Sitters Week, you will meet a different pet sitter and hear their personal heroic story.

    Of course, no pet sitter considers any of this heroic, but rather all part of the job and all carried out without a second thought.

    Now that deserves some recognition and some gratitude.

  • APSE 2.0

    Posted February 20, 2011 By in APSE News and Events With | No Comments

    After less than a year since we launched APSE, it continues to become clear what you want from a pet sitting association.

    This redesign is not so much of a redesign as it is a restructure of our content that we have for you.

    We have now put our focus on providing pet sitters (both members and non-members) freely available content.

    Content in the form of articles, tutorials, recorded expert interviews, video training and community.

    Please take a few moments to look around our site. You’ll notice some solid changes.
