How long do you wait before applications?

I posted a new listing and dates in beautiful Durango,co. More than a week ago and getting no response. I’m suspicious that it’s not actually live…. Have been assured by support that it is but got some funny error messages.
I did list some dog behavior issues. Is this turning people off?

@beccacanoe hello and welcome to the forum where you will find many HO’s and sitters who are here to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have

I took a look at your profile and first, let me say I would not be worrying yet about an August sit. There is still plenty of time and sitters are taking a little longer to apply for sits that are out a few months unless they are during holiday time. This is a sign of the times due to so many travel concerns these days.

I did read what you wrote about Oli and some sitters might be concerned but we all appreciate the honesty of the description in your post. There is nothing worse than not being told the truth, then having to confront the issue upon arrival. There are many folks here who do have experience with behavioral problems and I feel you are going to find someone without much trouble…your home, location and furbabies are beautiful!

One thing I would suggest is that you link your member profile to your forum profile here at Procedure - How to add a listing to a forum user profile - Staff - TrustedHousesitters Community Forumand follow the easy instructions. This will give you more exposure to potential THS sitters who can easily reach your listing and assist with helping you get the perfect sitter.

I wish you the very best and wish we were in the area during the time you need help as I know how beautiful the Durango area is (I’m originally from Colorado).


Thanks! I appreciate your encouragement! I think I’ve made the link as you suggested.
