Questions about sitters

We are a retired couple with two VERY spoiled little dogs (20lb Morkie & 3.5lb tiny Yorkie). We travel mostly by motorhome and take them, but do also travel a couple times a year by plane and need to leave them. Our Rover sitter just moved, so in need of another option. Trustedhousesitter seems like a great option, but did have a question.
We take our little monsters with us everywhere and rarely leave them home alone and when we do it’s for a VERY short time. Are there sitters that that would be willing to do the same?
Thanks so much,
Julie

You’d need to specify this in your house sit ad. It’s not uncommon :slight_smile:

Welcome @Murphmag!
Sure, I do. But in Canada… This is why I asked a couple of days ago what was the % of full time sitters as it seems there is a quite many. I will be retiring in February and up to now the longest sit I accepted was for 15 days. Many long week ends here.

Hello @Murphmag

Julie welcome to our community forum.

There are wonderful sitter members on the Forum who can help give you peace of mind about keeping your two happy at home.

Pets are at the very heart of TrustedHousesitters, caring for them according to their individual needs and their family’s expectations is always the sitters number one priority. Communication is the key to a successful sit and only when everyone is 100% happy with all of the arrangements do you mutually confirm.

When you create a listing that’s the prefect time to detail the care your little ones need and if they are used to being in your company wherever you go there’s nothing sitters like better than exploring places with their new best furry friends.

Your little ones wont realize you’ve left until you walk back through the door

Thank you again for joining in the conversation, we really look forward to getting to know you, and your little ones, better.

Hi Julie @Murphmag and welcome to the Forum. Caring and spending time with the pets is the best part of housesitting for us, we like to give the pets a holiday with us whilst their owners are having their own holiday. Many Sitters fel that way. We take the pets everywhere with us, whenever it’s possible. We do one to two hours online work at the most per day and the rest is out walking and exploring and curdling with the pets. If we want to explore for longer then we check into somewhere in the area before or after the Sit. When we are house and pet sitting the pets are at the heart of our day/evening.
You are able to specify all your needs when you post your sit request on the THS website.
Hope we get to meet Yorkie and Morkie one day :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
Happy New Year!

Julie & Jonathan,
So glad to hear from you. It’s nice to know that we will be able to leave Murphy and Maggie without worry about them being left alone. We didn’t get them until we retired and honestly didn’t realize it would be so hard to feel comfortable leaving them to travel - which we live to do. With this crazy corona virus, we don’t have any exact dates that we will need a sitter, it will definitely use this service when we do. We do know we’ll be gone for all of April 2022, it not sure how early we need to post our request.
Thank you again and we hope to chat more.

Thank you so much for your response. It’s great to know that we will be able to find someone who will not leave our pups for long periods of time. Too bad you are in Canada :smirk:, but we do look forward to using this service.

Don’t ask for sitters 18 months in advance. It sounds very far. Nobody knows what s/he will do in 2022.
Even plans decided a few weeks before had to be changed due to Covid and not all of us will be vaccinated before several months… life can be surprising…
