Our pets are our family and it can be difficult leaving them. I am a 31 year-old, CRB/DBS-checked professional house sitter and dog walker in the Brighton area (and further afield). I thoroughly enjoy looking after people's homes and providing their pets with their familiar routine and oodles of love and cuddles, to make sure they are happy while you are away. I work collaboratively with you to make sure that I understand exactly what your pets need and how you like to keep your house safe and clean. I adore all animals, and have been working as a group dog walker and house sitter in the Brighton area for several years. I've worked with all manner of pets, big and small, nervous and aggressive. I have quite a free, flexible work pattern during the week and am able to be at your home for long periods of time (the longest I will be away from a house is 3 hours).
As a house sitter, I am happy to:
House sit for as long as you need (minimum of 2 nights)
Look after as many pets as needed within one household
House sit any weekdays and weekends (including Bank holidays)
Feed your pets at their preferred times
Take dogs on solo walks up to twice a day, driving to exciting rural locations if desired
Wash pets and provide any basic medical care required
Play with and cuddle pets as much as they like!
Sleep in your house to ensure pets are safe overnight (pets can sleep in the same room as me)
Keep your house clean and tidy, including all routine chores (e.g. recycling)
Keep water, gas and electricity bills to a minimum (turning off lights and taps as much as possible)
Do anything else you require to give you peace of mind while you are away
I pride myself on keeping close contact with you and providing exciting and detailed feedback every day, with lots of pictures and videos of your pets. This really helps you to feel connected with your pets and feel part of the action while you are away.
It's difficult knowing who to pick as a house sitter, and so I am very happy to visit you in advance (with no charge), so you can get to know me, and for me to meet you, your pets, and get to know your house and routine.
Do get in touch!
Adam stayed in our flat for five days looking after Bruce. He couldn’t have been better - very communicative and quick to reply to messages, happy to come over for an initial meeting to get to know us, and stayed in touch including pictures and updates the whole time we were away. He took account of all our instructions and advice about Bruce, and made sure he was given not just food and exercise but plenty of love and attention while we were away. Adam totally inspires confidence that he can handle even tricky dogs, and he wasn’t at all phased by Bruce’s little quirks.
He was also of course also totally respectful of our flat, leaving it probably cleaner and tidier than when he got there!
We will definitely use Adam again, and would recommend him to anyone.
