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.

I had the pleasure of Tahlee house sitting and looking after my two shitzu boys for 7 nights while I was away. She did an amazing job looking after my boys and they warmed upto her very quickly. One of my boy can be a little difficult but Tahlee had no problem at all with him. Communication was excellent and got regular photos and updates which was great. Tahlee is a very experienced house and pet sitter she was very professional and lovely and respectful mature personality. She followed the instructions meticulously. Upon returning home, the house was in immaculately clean I didn't need to tidy up at all. It was even cleaner than when I left it.😁 It was so great and relaxing to come back after long drive to amazingly clean house. She was so thoughtful and respectful of the house which I really appreciate it. I highly recommend Tahlee for house and pet sitting service and I would definitely ask for her service next time again.

We are beyond pleased with Giovanna and her care for our Skye during her extended stay of 6 days. She provided 24-hour care, ensuring our puppy was not only fed and safe but also given a lot of playtime and affection. She kept us updated with regular messages and photos, which gave us peace of mind knowing our Skye was in great hands. We couldn't have asked for a better pet sitter. Giovanna exceeded our expectations, and we wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a caring and reliable pet sitter. She is definitely the best one :) Thanks for everything xoxo
