There are many families registered with TrustedHousesitters, all of whom are enjoying the benefits house and pet sitting can provide. From reducing the cost of travel to providing educational opportunities outside of the classroom, house and pet sitting can enrich your family’s time away.
As with all sits, it is at the discretion of the owner to decide what kind of sitter is best suited to take on the responsibilities they plan to hand over. If you can demonstrate that your family is trustworthy, reliable, and able to take on the tasks required, there’s no reason why you can not apply for the sit.
We ask owners to stipulate if a sit is ‘family friendly’ - and you can search for these types of sits via the filters.
When creating your house sitter profile you can also include the ages of your children too.
