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

Agheliki is just a great cat-sitter, I had total confidence in her throughout as she is friendly courteous professional and great with the cat. One week of house sitting has passed without any need for concern on my part whatsoever, loads of pics and vids of the kitty and it is clear that the cat liked her, I highly highly recommend Agheliki to anyone in need of a cat sitter.

Tash was great looking after our dog and cat for a week while we were on holiday. Her communications were prompt and professional, she asked thoughtful questions during our meet and greet that clearly indicated her knowledge of pet care and dog training, and was very accessible and flexible on scheduling. The house was in perfect condition when we returned, just as we had left it, and our pets seemed very happy and stress-free. Our pup can be a little uncertain about new people and being left with strangers, but he clearly got on well with Tash as he was in good spirits when we came home. Would absolutely hire her again and have already recommended her to friends!
