GIVE YOUR PETS THE VERY BEST CARE

While boarding facilities like kennels are an option for your pets, it is not usually the best for their own well-being - and they are expensive.

Your pets will do far better in their own home, with familiar smells, boundaries, toys, food and routines. A pet sitter also provides far more focused care, for far more time.

A live-in pet sitter also means that your pet can be rushed to the Vet if necessary, and you can be in full communication for the whole time.

COMPLETE CONFIDENCE WHILE YOU'RE AWAY

Get a house sitter in while you're away. It will cost you nothing* and you will get the very best form of house security and pet care.

Nothing comes close to having someone living in your property while you're not around. It is the best insurance against burglary or vandalism, and you're got someone on site if there is any emergency like storm damage or a burst water pipe.

And you can call home at any point if you need to. That's confidence.

THE PRACTICALITIES

Register as a Home Owner, create a free house ad and start communicating with House Sitters.

It's easy, fast, secure - and completely free. In addition, our support is friendly and helpful, making everything more doable.

THE MESSAGING SYSTEM:
Our in-house messaging system provides a secure and convenient communication channel for our members. No personal contact information is made available to anyone until you to choose when and how. All your conversations with house sitters are kept securely in the one place, allowing you to access them from any device at any time.

YOUR LISTING: 
We make it really easy for you to put up an attractive, practical house ad with all the key information necessary to help pull through house sitters that are better fitted to your requirements.

SECURITY: 
No location or contact data is made available, unless you make it available yourself; even the map location is approximate for your area rather than your street address. Our messaging system provides a high level of security and privacy, and we have a number of security protocols and features that have been built in to the back-end over the last decade of operation.

REFERENCES: 
A sitter should be able to provide adequate documentation to make you feel confident in their suitability. This could include references, referees and documents like a criminal record check.

AGREEMENT:
Once you've agreed to engage the services of a house sitter, it's wise to draft up a house sitting agreement. This process is great for aligning expectations and forcing both parties to consider aspects that might have otherwise been missed.

ORIENTATION AND BRIEFING:
it is important that you give your house sitter a comprehensive briefing, and tour of the the house. Ideally, you should create a motel-style Welcome Pack, which we provide a template for, which provides a great base of important and useful information.

*FREE: House sitting is usually free, for both sitter and house owner, although this is completely up to the individuals. There are usually some costs that need to be covered by either the sitter or the house owner e.g. electricity, phone usage, vet fees etc. How these costs are handled needs to be agreed before the sit begins. House sitters pay a single annual membership fee, while house owners pay nothing to advertise their house or to contact sitters.
