Hello from Toronto!

Hi @Louise65 a very warm welcome to our community forum and to TrustedHousesitters we look forward to sharing a long and happy pet and house sitting journey with you.

@Joanne has given you some great advice and there are topics on the forum from new and experienced members really worth a visit where they share lots of help and advice.

Also the website Blog has excellent articles to help a “newbie” and for every member who has numerous reviews, well we all started at exactly the same place, where you are now.

The key to success is crafting a great profile, adding references, verifications, high quality pics and always writing a personalized application. When possible start with local sits, if you’re flexible last minute ones make ideal opportunities.

If you have any questions do ask on the forum. When completed (although profiles are a work in progress) you can add the link to your forum profile and let other members get to know you. Here is the link on how to do that How to add a listing or profile link to your FORUM profile

Welcome again.

Angela & the Team
