Thread: Petsitter/housesitter needed.

  1. #1

    Petsitter/housesitter needed.

    We are going out of town from June 7th until the afternoon of June 17th. We have 4 dogs, 3 cats, an iguana and several fish. We are looking to have someone responsible, reliable, non-smoker, non-partier with references to stay in our home and look after our animals and to clean up after them- ie vacuuming up the pet hair, washing their food bowls etc. We live in a small neighborhood where we all watch out for each other . There is a police officer who lives here also so it is quite safe here. Our friends would come over once a day to water the plants and vegetables and to make sure everything is ok. We would have to meet beforehand and have you meet the animals. Please pm me if interested.

    I also contacted two people on rover.com but they have not replied yet.

    Though I had never heard anything positive or negative about rover.com, I recently read about an pet sitting job that did not turn out well from someone that hired through them. Just beware. Personally, I would be leery of handing the keys of my house and my pet care over to a complete stranger.

    Thank you for your advice. We are trying to be very careful about the whole process. Unfortunately we do not have any family and limited friends that we can rely on. One of our dogs is getting on in years (aren't we all) and hasn't been in a boarding facility for years. He always comes back with his normally curly tail between his legs for a week.

    We have used the boarding on St. Andrews church road several times in the past.

    Crap. I don't know any pet sitters in the area to recommend.

    Have you tried calling the kennel? They may have some people on staff that would pet/house set for you. Just a suggestion.
