Greetings and questions from Southern Indiana, US

Hi @Sissies , You’ve already received some good feedback from @Smiley , @Michael1 and @Danandnan . I’ll add mine.

Evansville won’t have the attraction of London or New York City, but it still has a lot going for it. And there may be sitters from neighboring cities and states or people who have family nearby who may want to sit there. In your listing, you can mention some of the places of interest: Parks, the botanical garden, museums, some of your favorite restaurants, the nature center, the theater and any festivals that coincide with the dates of your sit. Once you have your listing ready, you can add it to your forum profile and forum members will give you helpful feedback. You can do the same when your sitter profile is ready.

To do this, click here: How to add your listing or profile to your forum profile

There are sitters interested in all lengths of sits – from a few days to a few months. Generally, if your sit is two weeks or more, it will be good to post the dates as far ahead as you can. In general, I would suggest also booking your shorter sits at least a month ahead if you’re able. Some sitters want a sit only long enough to see the area, say 5-10 days. Other sitters, especially nomads, look for sits that allow them to stay in one place for an extended period. Many of these people work from home so will be able to spend a lot of time with your pets.

As for searching for sits, set up a saved search on the app with your desired location, date range and any other search parameters such as type of pets, use of a car, etc., and you will receive a notification as soon as a sit that that fits these criteria is posted. Fyi, the app will send you immediate notifications. If you set it up on the website, you only receive a daily digest and many of the sits are already gone by the time you receive this. Many sits go very fast so if you think you’re interested, send an application or at least a note stating your application will follow, asap.

The other thing I would suggest is just to read the forum. You’ll be amazed at all there is to discuss with re. to this lifestyle. And use the magnifying glass icon above to enter questions and search topics of interest.

Lastly, THS has a money-back guarantee for home and pet owners. The money-back guarantee for sitters is only for those based in the UK:
