Hi there! We are Chris and Sue from California

We live between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe in the foothill town of Penn Valley. You may have heard of Grass Valley/Nevada City which we are super close to. We are both retired from teaching Special Ed, Chris as a ParaEducator and Sue as an Administrator.
We will be using TH for the first time in July. We have already had great communication with our sitter. We would LOVE to figure out how to housesit even though we have 3 Havanese pups.


Hello @ChriSue and a warm welcome to both TrustedHousesitters and our forum community! It’s lovely to hear that you’ve already got your sitter booked and are building a relationship based on good communication - you’ll see that mentioned here on the forum so often, and discover how many great friendships are also built between members.

Can totally understand why you’d like to house sit too. We have lots of “combined” members, those who get sitters in while they go a house sit. It takes a bit more logistical organisation, but does happen successfully all the time! Hopefully you’ll get some feedback here from someone who can give you some advice and reassurance as a member who does both!

In the meantime enjoy the forum and enjoy making connections! And please do share some pix here of your 3 pups if you’d like to :slight_smile:

All the best, Vanessa and the team
