We had a wonderful first experience. We went on holiday for two weeks and left our home and 2 dogs in the care of Amy. She sent us daily updates and we returned to a clean house and two happy pups. If you do your due diligence this is a win-win for everyone. Mark F, Portland
The Role of a House and Pet Sitter
What exactly is a house/pet sitter? A house sitter is an individual hired by a homeowner to maintain the home while the homeowner is away. A house sitter may be compensated by an agreed upon pay or the ability to live rent free in the home while the owner is not there. In exchange, house sitters assume general responsibilities involved in the maintenance of the home such as watering plants, taking out garbage, checking mail, and deterring intruders. If you would like for your house sitter to take care of your pet as well, make sure to discuss this prior to their first visit. Make sure you go over feeding and walking schedules and anything else they must know to keep your pet healthy and happy. Put simply, a house and pet sitter will make sure everything runs smoothly with your home and your pets, just as if you were there.
