We always pride ourselves on flexibility - a top requirement for housesitters, and post Covid, we find every sit has been complicated, date changes, cancellations, etc.
Every full time sitter knows the mechanics of adapting to a schedule change - rearranging with homeowners on both ends and juggling arrival/departure times. Or having the homeowners call and say they are coming home early – see you in 3 hours!
Here’s a new one! We start a sit in 2 days - they just acquired a third dog. Long story, they rescued a dog and totally understandable given the circumstances. We’ve done a sit with 3 dogs before - each on a different feeding/walking/activity schedule. Hoping this doesn’t happen again!
