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
Natasha, 14-01-2022
I have never met such a sweet, caring animal lover as a pet sitter for my two angels (Lexi and Blu). Clara stayed at my house for 3 days and sent me photos daily and updates too, which put my mind at ease. I never for one moment felt worried about Clara looking after my dog and cat, as we met prior and both my dog and cat loved her. She is patient (which is so important as my dog, Lexi, is still like a puppy), and treated our home as she would hers - left in great condition. If you're looking for a pet sitter, I would highly recommend Clara, but not when we need her ;) Thanks again, Clara! x

This was the first time I had to leave my dogs to a pet sitter and I'm so happy I found Eli. Even prior to booking her, she was very responsive to my questions and suggested a meet and greet so my dogs would feel comfortable around her. She stayed at my place for 3 nights and took really good care of my 2 dogs. She sent me updates and photos/videos of my dogs everyday which gave me peace of mind while I was away. 😊 Thanks again, Eli! Til next time!
