Pet Sitters International has released its 2013 Pet-Sitting Industry Forecast. The e-book highlights the growth of the in-home pet-care industry and shares encouraging industry data for entrepreneurs seeking to capitalize on the expanding pet industry.
The forecast is a compilation of data from PSI's State of the Industry survey, current market research, its collective intellectual capital and knowledge from its 18-year history and more than 7,100 member businesses.
The 2013 Pet-Sitting Industry Forecast explores how professional pet-sitting services extend beyond cat and dog care. More than 60 percent of PSI's member businesses also offer services for birds, fish and cage pets.
The e-book also notes another sign of growth in the category—the recent influx of numerous online pet-sitter directories and pet-care search sites.
The e-book is free to current and prospective pet-care professionals on the association's website.
