The Pet Industry Advocacy International (PIAI) believes there is a need for a high level of oversight in the pet industry across all professional disciplines. Licensing has been a proposed option, but licensing without a strong underlying ethical code of conduct and a minimum standard for knowledge and skills of service providers does not provide the protection and level of service needed by pet owners and their pets

Pet Advocacy Statement Regarding Working Practices

The Professional Dog Walkers Association is a member based organisation who are committed to enhancing the standard of the professional dog walking industry in the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland by advocating for the use of ethical, kind methods and equipment, continuous professional development and consumer protection.

We believe the industry needs regulation, adherence to policy and best practice; and we are proactive from within to ensure that the welfare and safety of the animals in our members' care and their clients' needs are met in the kindest and most professional way.

We are in the process of applying for organisational membership to the Pet Industry Adovacy International, a global coalition of informed, ethical and humane organisations.
