We are back from the Pet Sitters International conference which was held in Atlanta, GA. This was the time of the flooding after the heavy rains. A few local sitters were late arriving because of flooded basements and roads but with IPhones and BlackBerrys they were coordinating their businesses from the conference.

This mini conference was certainly worth the trip. The day included a session on Pet Emergencies led by a DVM, a session on Legal Considerations for Small Business Owners led by an attorney, a session on Business Branding led by the 2008 PSI’s pet sitter of the year. Meeting so many professional pet sitting company owners was educational as well. It’s interesting to hear their stories.

We combined this mini conference with a week-long vacation. Carol and Donna provided excellent client pet care while we were gone.
