TrustedHousesitters is an introductory platform for a global pet-loving community. We enable home and pet owners to connect with care-orientated sitters who will sit for free in exchange for the chance to spend time with some wonderful pets and for free accommodation. Our community allows pet-lovers to travel and pet owners the chance to go away with peace of mind.
There is an annual subscription to join the community, and this gives you unlimited access to the site. So as an owner, you can post as many dates as you like to find a sitter throughout the year, whilst as a sitter, you can apply to as many sits as you like and connect with lots of different owners.
We have a great video about how the community works below, and you can also find out more information on our ‘How it Works’ page.
Please feel free to contact our Membership Services Team via phone, email or live chat to ask any questions about how it all works.
Here's a transcript of our 'How it works' video above:
Like many pet owners, Martin has been reluctant to travel. He knows Coco and Monty are happier at home, and can’t bear to put them in kennels... But he doesn’t like imposing on others, and knows pet sitters are expensive!
So when Martin’s neighbour tells him about the community of pet lovers at TrustedHousesitters, it feels like a safe, practical solution. He signs up, shares some photos, and gives a brief description of his home.
Before long, Martin receives applications from members of TrustedHousesitters. Each wants to care for Martin’s home and pets, free of charge... He reads their reviews from other pet owners to find people that give him complete peace of mind.
Jenny enjoys visiting new places, and keeping pets for company is now her favourite way to travel... She applies with a proven track record which includes a full police check, external references and four previous ‘five-star reviews’.
After an exchange of messages and a video call to explore their needs, Martin and Jenny feel they’re a great match. And because they’re both doing it purely for a love of pets and travel, they naturally have a greater sense of trust - saving needless worry from the minute Martin goes away to the minute he comes home!
TrustedHousesitters is the only membership that gives pet lovers complete travel freedom... Simply buy your annual membership, create your profile as a home listing or a sitter, and you’re away: 12 months of unlimited travel freedom.
