NorthStar Moving Partners with Pet Sitters International to Match Professional Dog Walkers with Pets On the Move

Eco-luxury moving company expands pet care services to connect their four-legged clients with qualified dog walkers in their new neighborhood

Los Angeles, California, UNITED STATES

LOS ANGELES, March 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NorthStar Moving ® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, has unveiled a new customized package with Pet Sitters International (PSI), the world's leading educational organization for professional pet sitters, to connect clients with local professional dog walkers after a move. The service ensures pet owners seamlessly find a new pet sitter and walker for their dog when they relocate.

"Pet owners in the process of moving definitely need easy access to finding a new professional dog walker which is why we are thrilled to team up with NorthStar Moving," said Pet Sitters International Marketing & Communication Manager Beth Stultz. "We love opportunities to connect PSI's dog-walking members with pet owners and moving is the opportune time. As the pet-care industry grows, it is important that pet owners are more prudent than ever when selecting pet sitters and dog walkers. We provide pet owners with access to the largest online directory of professional pet sitters, free-of-charge. There are plenty of new service providers to uncover when you move to a new region, so we are pleased to work with NorthStar Moving to take one of those hassles off of their clients' moving to-do list by providing them with a quick, free way to search for the best local dog walker for their furry friends."

This unique partnership provides pet owners with a simple way to find trusted, professional pet care as they move to a new area. The dog and owner's routine need not be interrupted when settling into a new home. PSI's comprehensive Pet Sitter Locator quickly provides pet owners with a list of local professional dog walkers and sitters and indicates the credentials each provider maintains. The owner can then set foot out of their new home right after moving day and be assured their best friend is well cared for while they are away. Their beloved pet's diet and exercise routine continue seamlessly from old home to new home, plus they have a new companion, making them happy and stress-free.

"Moving can be stressful on every member of the family and that includes the four-legged ones," said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder & Chief of Organized Living Laura McHolm. "Think about it from the eyes of your dog: boxes are piling up where they usually curl up; strangers are in and out; and then, they are transported to a new unfamiliar space. That's why it is so critical you don't just leave your pet alone in the new unknown home, causing them even more stress. A stressed pet can also run away, so make sure your veterinarian microchips your pet and also make sure to have a trained professional look after your pet while you're at work. That's why we are delighted to team up with the experts at PSI to care for your pet in your new home and ease the minds of pet owners and their dogs. By instantly finding a new dog walker that you can trust, your dog will be exercised and get to explore their new surrounding territory on day one in the new home, easing their stress and make their tail wag."

This new package has garnered a nickname and can be requested individually or combined with any of NorthStar Moving's pet care services:
The Fido – It's Monday after moving weekend. You have your new suit on and lunch in hand, ready to take on the new chapter. But wait! Your floppy eared companion is pawing at your feet with its leash in mouth already to go with you. Your four-legged best friend isn't used to their new home and could feel absolutely deserted. And oh no, what will your energetic canine do to your new home while you are away? DON'T be a Frightened Irresponsible Dog Owner! Never fear our super dog walker finder is here! With Pet Sitters International's free Pet Sitter Locator you can easily sniff out and evaluate and locate the supreme dog walker in your area to care for and exercise your spirited companion. Not only will you be transformed into the best kind of Fido, a Fantastic Intelligent Dog Owner, your drooling buddy will thank you, barking less and wagging more!
