Hello, my husband and I recently joined THS. Our beloved senior dog succumbed to congestive heart failure earlier this year. We miss having a pet, but we decided to join THS so that we could care for and enjoy the company of others’ pets without committing to our own.
We were fortunate to get our first sit quickly after joining, and are currently enjoying caring for two sweet and fun dogs living in a beautiful home. I can’t imagine a more pleasant sit, and it’s fairly local for us so very convenient.
We hope to build up some experience on sits within driving distance, get some good references, and hopefully secure some international sits eventually. So far it’s been a great experience!
We have a couple of interviews coming up for Thanksgiving week sits. Fingers crossed!
Looking forward to learning and sharing in the THS Forum!
Hi @petlover. Welcome to TrustedHousesitters and the community forum. I’m so sorry to hear about your beloved dog passing. My condolences to both you and your husband.
Starting out with local pet sits is a great way to start. I’m so glad that’s working well for you. Another thing you can do to potentially enhance your ability to get pet sits is to include a link to your profile on the main TrustedHousesitters website in your forum profile. Then you can let the members here know it’s there and ask them for feedback on things you might want to consider to make your sitter profile shine even more. A lot of our newer members do this with great success.
Thank you, Karen, great idea. We will do that!
Hi There, so sorry to hear about your senior dog and sending hugs.
Unfortunately, we have had a last minute cancellation for our 3 week trip due to Covid. We are located in San Diego not too far from Palm Springs and wonder if you would be available.
Please see our profile and direct message me with any questions:-)
Thank you for your message. I tried to see the details of the sit you need but couldn’t find it. Please send a link or an invitation to sit with the date and other details and I’ll take a look and get back to you ASAP.
Thanks again for reaching out,
