Pet Sitters International offers tips to ensure a safe and happy holiday for pets

The holiday season is a joyous time of year for many families, but joy can turn to tragedy if pet owners don’t take simple precautions to ensure the safety of their pets.

This holiday season, Pet Sitters International (PSI), the world’s leading educational organization for professional pet sitters, advises pet owners to consider their pets when decorating and sharing holiday treats.

“Simple holiday traditions, such as trimming the tree and decorating the house, can pose potential problems to pets if not monitored carefully,” warns PSI President Patti J. Moran.
