A sitter stays overnight in your home

House and pet care for while you are away

A house sitter will stay at your home while you are away to care for your pets and keep an eye on your home.

House sitting is a perfect choice for pets that prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home. Our house sitters are also a more cost effective option if you own several pets.

With house sitting, your house will be lived-in and far more secure with a trusted house sitter coming and going than an empty home.

House Sitting

Really delighted with Sophie's house sitting. She met us earlier in the week to reassure us that Luna would be well taken care of, to learn her routine and have first meeting. Sophie was very punctual (aka early) when arriving to take over house sitting duty. Luna had a great time and Sophie was very thoughtful at sending photos as updates and showed great flexibility when we had to change our return time. Highly recommend Sophie for anyone looking for an honest, personable, skilled dog sitter.

Aisling stayed with my dog at my house for three nights. The communication prior to her dog- and housesitting was reliable and very friendly. A Meet & Greet was arranged uncomplicatedly and one could tell from the first moment that she connects well with dogs. My senior pup immediately loved her and was treated with cuddles by her. Aisling was very considerate and made sure she knew everything required for a smooth stay at my home with my dog. While minding my dog, Aisling sent me daily updates and pictures of my dog being totally relaxed at home or on one of the many walks she took him on. Aisling left the place impeccable and it will be a pleasure for me and my dog to work together again in the future. Great sitter!
