The House Sitter web site

As someone wanting a sitter , I’m not sure how others feel but the site is very 'clunky", probably its trying to do too much instead of keeping it simple and easy to navigate. I’m not a web designer but I know a good site when I use it.
I should easily be able to add potential dates for sitters to quickly see??? finally I think I’ve done it but it took too long.

I haven’t seen the home owner side of things, but with any site, I guess it takes a bit of time to figure it out.

In the meantime, I hope this helps.

Hello @Suemarshall and welcome to both the forum and TrustedHousesitters. It’s disappointing however, to hear that your first experience wasn’t as smooth as you would have liked.

In the meantime I hope you find your perfect sitter for lovely Minnie very soon!
All the best, Vanessa and the forum team
