Why should I chose house sitting?
Safety for your home.
Because a licensed and bonded pet sitter will be staying overnight with your pets, your home will be lived-in making it a less attractive target for thieves and burglars. Your sitter will also perform regular security checks including ensuring all locks are secured, checking for broken windows and identifying water leaks.
Peace of mind and convenience for you.
If you have pets, since you’ll be skipping the kennel, pets stay in their own home. Best of all, your smiling pets will be waiting for you when you return from your trip. Your pet sitter will be in constant communication with you throughout the service and will send report cards and photos throughout the stay so you never have to wonder how your pets are doing.
Because your pets will stay in their own environment, there is no chance your pet could come down with a communicable disease. Pets can easily catch kennel cough, heartworm, parvovirus and ringworm from social settings.
Less stress for your pets.
If you ask your pets what they prefer, they would tell you they would rather stay at home in their own familiar environment where they’re most comfortable.

What days do you provide house sitting?
We operate 7 days a week, 365 days per year including holidays.
Will I have the same house sitter each time?
You will be assigned a primary house sitter based on the needs of your home and/or your pets and their personality. While we try to keep the same house sitter on all visits, we may utilize additional staff members to provide coverage especially for longer stays.
Are you licensed, bonded and insured?
We absolutely are! We are a full time, highly professional pet sitting business that takes our reputation very seriously. We wouldn’t have over 1,000 clients if we weren’t dependable and trustworthy.
Will you provide references?
We invite you to check out our reviews on Google, Yelp and Facebook. If after reviewing these reviews you’re still not convinced, we’re happy to provide you with contact information to clients who will happily serve as references.
I have cameras in my home. We will be watching you!
We do not have a problem with cameras in the home. In fact, they protect us and prove that we are doing our job. However, we do not allow cameras in private areas such as bathrooms, changing rooms or bedrooms.
OVERNIGHT HOUSE SITTING IN YOUR HOME
A licensed, bonded and insured house sitter will stay in your home from approximately 10:00 pm to 6:00 am (at least 8 hours guaranteed) following a customized routine that we’ll develop in collaboration with you. You can also schedule additional visits throughout the day to accommodate potty breaks and meals. Additional visits are charged at our standard drop-in rate.
HOME SECURITY CHECKS
Your house sitter will provide drop-in visits to perform security checks and any other minor maintenance you require. These checks generally last about 15 minutes and you’ll receive a property report and pictures at the conclusion of each check-in.
This is perfect for clients who have a home in the area, but reside somewhere else throughout the year. Also great for AirBNB checks.
The majority of our clients book this service one to three times per week.
Locations more than 15 minutes from your pet professional’s home may be subject to a small travel surcharge.
Meet and greet: we require a meet and greet for all new clients. This meeting is free of charge for clients booking and paying for 5 or more visits, otherwise a standard visit charge applies.
