Here is a word about our specialty, house sitting - quality presence for the animal as the pet sitter is staying with your pet at your place. Actually, besides all basic tasks as feeding the animal, it will also provide staying at your place, which means quality presence for your animal and a higher possibility of socializing with doggy, kitty or birdy, and making them feel more comfortable than if they were at a daycare.
The physical and psychological well-being of pets is our main concern, and animals can benefit from great quality interactions with the pet sitter.

I am very happy to meet with homeowners before the sit if we are located nearby. Otherwise, I would be pleased to meet via a video call.

FREE service and expenses covered :

Also, as per the culture of House Sitters Canada, I have signed up on the propose of travelling and visiting specific known and new places. In certain contexts though, and as HSC has mentioned the possibility that owners and pet sitters / house sitters may agree on their own terms, like a short notice sitting, I might suggest the limited coverage of some expenses, for example, travelling fees (bus), public transit fees during the stay, etc.

No travelling or other expenses fees for sittings in Montréal.

Looking forward to talking to you and to meeting your furry loved ones! :)

Marie-Joie is a pleasure to work with and a wonderful pet-sitter and house-sitter. We think our cat, Mowgli, likes Marie-Joie even better than she likes us!! I felt 100% confident leaving my house and cat in Marie-Joie's care. She is a kind and empathetic person who clearly loves animals. I recommend her highly.

Marie s'est très bien occupé de mon châton. C'est comme si je ne l'avais jamais quitté. Elle communique très bien et m'informais quotidennement. L'appartement était impécable à mon retour. Je la recommande fortement.

Marie a été impécable avec mon châton jeune de 4mois. Ce petit a eu tout l'attention et l'amour dont il avait besoins. Marie m'a envoyé des photos et vidéo durant son temps chez-moi. Je la recommande fortement, vous ne serez pas deçus.

Marie a été une housesitter idéale - communicative, disponible et attentionnée avec nos animaux et notre maison. Elle nous a gardé au courant avec des photos et messages et a répondu à toutes nos questions.
