I noticed this listing to day, is it considered by THS as a pet sitting ? Or a work which would be done by somebody living in town ?
That looks a bit like unpaid work to me. I guess you would need to contact the HO to understand if that’s what they are looking for.
Hi @Provence could you forward the link to that listing please? Membership Services will need to contact the owner to clarify.
I found the link looking on my computer yesterday historic, I send you it via a private mesage
Definitely unpaid work. I don’t know how this would be beneficial to housesitter at all
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Angela let me know about this listing and I reached out to the owners.
It seems that this was old information on their listing from a long time ago and we have previously contacted them to advise that this was not allowed on the site as we do not provide daycare, dog walking or drop-in visits.
The owner has now amended the listing as they are looking for a sitter while they are away.
Thanks again for being vigilant on the site.
@Angela-CommunityManager @Katie-MembershipServices - Similar to this one/ Honest in their expectations - previous ‘sitters’ seem to have loved the experience -plenty of applications… but is it work or housesitting?

Thank you @Colin this is a long standing owner member and repeat listing, Membership Services have contacted in the past … I will pass along to the team again.
@Colin , I have noticed this listing too. They have had many sitters who left no review, so I took that as a bad sign.
Adding another listing for consideration to the ‘possible unpaid work’ list
Check out this sit in Stranraer, Scotland on TrustedHousesitters House sit for Tessa in Stranraer, United Kingdom | TrustedHousesitters.com
Thank you @Elle - we will pass this over to the membership services to look at further.
