New in Alaska

Hi @NancyInAlaska a very warm welcome to you and the furry family thank you joining our community forum and TrustedHousesitters … I’m glad the furry family doesn’t include the rather large black bear garden visitor in your listing, we had the same daily visitors in BC Canada, great long distance “friends”

We completely understand your nervousness as new owner members, the first experience can seem a little daunting however you are in the best place for getting help and advice on how to select, arrange and prepare for your sitters. There is also very good articles and advice on the website Blog including …
10 questions to ask before your sitter arrives |

You can also add your listing link to your Forum profile that way other members will be able to view your listing, look at those adorable pet pics and “Paddington” in the garden :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Follow the instruction in this link >>

You will constantly hear that communication is the key to having a successful sit, communication with potential sitters and the sitter you select, it builds relationships and clarifies the expectations and needs of everyone involved, especially those of the pets.

Please explore the many topics on the forum and feel free to ask any questions our community are helpful, knowledgable and supportive, we are here to help and you are not alone.

Angela and the Team
