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.
