Moving from Owner to Sitter (unusual pets?)

Hi all! We have previously had excellent sitters looking after our place in Australia when holidaying in Europe. I am now retired, so I am hoping to spend a few weeks sitting in Europe while my wife still pursues her profession.

Anyway, I am a beekeeper, and have chickens, dogs and alpacas at home. So my question: Is there a significant demand for sitters that can handle the more “unusual” pets?

Hi @alextewes, welcome to our community forum thank you for joining. It’s great to hear that you already had excellent sitters caring for your “unusual” pets, this is a great place to ask your question and what an interesting one it is too.

Welcome once again, we can’t wait to get to know you better and hear more about your amazing and “unusual” pets and your TrustedHousesitters experiences.

Welcome Alex. This club is nice.
If you read posts you’ll see some sitters looked after alpacas, tortoises, tropical birds.
Owners are less than sitters to contribute I don’t know why…
