New To Forum From CA USA

Hello from Santa Cruz, California. We just joined TrustedHousesitters recently and have 3 confirmed engagements with sitters to come to our home but have yet to enjoy the actual experience. I very much appreciate the comments on the various topics as our sits are 2 months in length. I will work on improving our guidelines based on the information I’m learning through this forum. Thank you.!

We have a small 10 year old standard poodle, Zorro.

Thank you for this community and I look forward to learning more in preparation for our first pet sit in the fall.



Hello @Bonniemurf and welcome to TrustedHousesitters and to the Community Forum :wave:t2::slightly_smiling_face:

You certainly live in a beautiful part of the world with such an adorable doggie, and it’s great to hear you already have sitters lined up!

You can also add your TrustedHousesitters profile on to your profile on here by following the attached link, should you wish. This will enable others to offer you helpful advice and feedback and will also give your listing extra coverage!

If you are unsure how to do this or if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask, we are all more than happy to help. :blush:

You might also find the following thread helpful.

Thank you, I’ll give it a try.

@Bonniemurf welcome to the forum and to the wonderful world of confident travel when leaving your baby…and can I say…that is an adorable pic of your baby. Wish I could be doing one of those sits!


Hi @Bonniemurf , and welcome.
Hope you’ll have wonderful experiences with pet sitters.
I hope to visit Santa Cruz again in future (spent a few weeks there in 2017), so who knows, our paths may cross in future :dog2:


Welcome fellow Zorro! Our Zorro has been looked after by THS nearly every time we’ve left town since welcoming him to our home. Definitely read up on the solid advice here on the forum on what to expect for your first sit and how to best prepare. He’ll do great I’m sure of it! And if it’s anything like our experiences zorro will be getting even more attention and adventures than his regular routine.

What a handsome boy! Zorro will be 10 in June, he’s in his prime, I hope! Thanks for your note, much appreciated.
