New Member in Mississippi

I am a new member from Gulfport, Mississippi. My husband and I are both retired and like to travel. We have 3 miniature schnauzers. We are newcomers to THS and this forum and obviously need help in setting up the proper profile. We have a request out for the Christmas holiday but no one has accepted. We need help in getting our profile perfected from some of the pros! Thank you ever so much for the help!


Well hello @Txhaynes and welcome to the forum. I’m glad you found us. Your 3 doggos are so cute, your house looks great, and being close to both the Gulf and the casinos should give sitters lots of ways to entertain themselves while caring for Baylee, Molly and Sofie. I’m sure you’ll find a sitter in no time.

Hello @Txhaynes and a big welcome to TrustedHousesitters and the Community Forum.
Your sit looks lovely with three gorgeous hounds :dog:… I had a peruse of your profile and would maybe swap your first photo of the lounge for a photo of your gorgeous miniature Schnauzers… hope this helps! :slightly_smiling_face:


Thank you so much. I like your idea!!!

@Txhaynes you are very welcome :slightly_smiling_face:

@Txhaynes I’m just following up on the suggestion about switching out the photos. It’s always a good idea to search your own listing when you make any changes. You want to make sure things display as you’d intended.

Photos display best when they are taken in landscape layout, or else square, but generally avoid using those in portrait mode, unless you first crop them. If you search your listing you’ll see what I mean. :smiling_face: It’s a learning curve for us all, but some of us have just been around longer than others. :wink:

Here are the two sits in your location. See what I mean?

Also, use your words wisely in your title. We can tell from the listing that you have three dogs and your location. Perhaps instead use something like ‘3 miniature schnauzers with lots of love to give’. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
