A sitter stays overnight in your home

House and pet care for while you are away

A house sitter will stay at your home while you are away to care for your pets and keep an eye on your home.

House sitting is a perfect choice for pets that prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home. Our house sitters are also a more cost effective option if you own several pets.

With house sitting, your house will be lived-in and far more secure with a trusted house sitter coming and going than an empty home.

House Sitting
Alexandra, 03-03-2021
I have two very big, boisterous dogs that I find hard to handle at the best of times. Looking for a pet sitter is so daunting for me. Miriam met me and the dogs for a meet and greet to ensure that the dogs were ‘doable’ and she reassured me that she would manage. And she did so above all expectations, the meet and greet was a bonus but her capability surprised me to say the least! I received photos and updates throughout the day (I don’t even know how she managed a photo during the walk!) she went above and beyond for the three days she spent with the pups. My dogs spent the day outside, having fun, wagging their tails and when I got home, it was clean, fresh and it felt like I hadn’t gone away. What a treasure, I don’t only recommend and commend Miriam, I urge you to connect with her for a trustworthy, reliable, competent and just hands down amazing dog sitter and walker.

I highly recommend Stephanie for your dog sitting/house sitting needs. My dog Frida loves her. Stephanie treats Frida like she’s her own dog. Frida had recently had her desexing surgery and needed gentle treatment, and Stephanie did an excellent job looking after her and keeping her safe. She is always very respectful of my home and an excellent communicator. She is my go-to dog sitter for overnight and all-day sitting!
