What is it?
House Sitting is when a Police-Checked Sitter comes to stay and sleep at your home in a spare room while you are away to take care of your pets.
When is this service used?
It is good for when you have multiple pets, large pets, a hobby farm, or a pet (such as a cat), that are territorial and prefer to be left in their own environment. Reptiles such as snakes are also registered to a particular address and cannot be moved to stay at a Sitter's home.
What is the best way to set my expectations?
It's important that you leave a House Sitting Welcome Form with Instructions to set your expectations at the start of the stay.
What prices should be charged?
Sitters set their own prices. It varies between $20 per night to $50 per night depending on the Sitter's expertise and how much work is required.
