I am new to THS and wondered if there was a contract to sign between owner and sitter
Hello @DylanFrazer welcome to our community forum and to TrustedHousesitters. There is no sitter/owner contract. All members agree to a Code of Conduct and to the TrustedHousesitters T&C’s when they join.
We advise reviewing all applicants messages and profiles and then once you have sitters who you feel could be the right fit for Dylan, Frazer and your home you begin the selection process with two way communications via messages and we strongly recommend having a video chat, where you each ask all of your questions, where you make clear your pet’s needs and your expectations, this is the opportunity for sitters to ask their questions also.
From this process and once everyone involved is 100% happy with the arrangement you mutually confirm the sit via your dashboard and then share the Welcome Guide which should contains all of the information a sitter needs to care for your pets and home, including veterinary information and emergency contact details.
I’m sure you will receive great feedback, advice and support from our members here on the forum and there are many excellent informational articles on the website blog and this help section
If you need any additional help or information please don’t hesitate to ask.
