With a focus on preventing and alleviating fear, anxiety, and stress in pets, the Fear Free™ Pet Sitter Certification Program was created to empower caregivers like you. Help educate pet parents on reading dog and cat body language and provide ideas for how enrichment and training can be incorporated into the pet’s environment and routine, promoting not only a calmer stay with the pet sitter, but a richer, more fulfilling life.
Here are just some of things you’ll learn from the Fear Free™ Pet Sitter Certification Program:
Learn Fear Free™ walking techniques and how to choose equipment that helps keep dogs happy during walks. Read the body language of dogs and cats and understand what actions to take based on what you observe. Recognize and promptly attend to signs of stress and pain in dogs and cats. Implement enrichment ideas to help keep pets calm during stays and help owners improve their pets’ lives.
Best of all, becoming a Fear Free™ Certified Professional gives you the opportunity to differentiate yourself as a cut above the rest! Once you're certified, you will be eligible for the Fear Free™ Certification Badge on your Caregiver profile that is visible to Pet Parents as they’re selecting their Caregiver!
