The tried and tested concept of house sitting from both the home owners and sitters perspective is a win win. With credible references, police clearances and detailed profiles the "stranger" element of this mutually trusting arrangement is removed. Sitters come from many different backgrounds including law enforcement, veterinary professionals, animal welfare organizations, teachers, legal and medical professions, both John and I are retired execs with many years spent working in positions of trust. Our many grateful and happy clients around the world are proof positive that engaging a trusted house sitter is the recipe for happy, stress free pets and travel with absolute peace of mind. I know I have sitters in my home whenever John and I are on assignment which can be nine months of the year.
When they arrive to start our "sit" we're welcoming new found friends, never strangers!
