We have house & pet sitters in over 150 countries! But the most important thing to remember when looking for a sitter is that sitters will care for your home and pets for free in return for a free retreat. Because of this, sitters will travel, at their own expense, across towns / cities, states / counties and even borders to come and love your pets while you are away.
You can check out a sitter's profile wherever they are from, which includes information about who they are including if they have gone through our identity checks and any reviews from other pet owners who have had them care for their home and pets through our website. You can also view information about why they want to sit, what motivates them, previous pet care (and life!) experience as well as photo's and even video profiles.
Ultimately you choose your sitter from the many who will apply - and if your preference is for someone local then of course that's fine - although the 'best' sitters who match your needs may not always be from the same area and house sitting through TrustedHousesitters has helped many form long lasting friendships around the world with other pet lovers.
Remember registered sitters do not charge to offer their time and love to care for your pets - we find this mutually beneficial arrangement means many go above and beyond and have often heard of sitters leaving meals for an owner's return and fresh flowers on the table!
If your pets have any specific requirements or needs then please do include this in your listing to advertise for a sitter, so they are fully aware of what the sit entails, prior to them applying, as this is a fair exchange then anything above the usual looking after a pet, does need to be specified, so everyone knows ahead.
