For House and Pet Sitting services provided by our experienced Pet and House Sitters

The sitters' subsistence allowance is normally paid to them before you go away. You will also need to pay the sitters' travelling expenses at 40p per mile, to cover the initial meeting, the assignment itself and any mileage involved in taking you to or from the airport or station. The booking fee is payable when you return your booking form to While You're Away. The sitting fee should be paid to your sitters upon your return.

NOTE: The charges listed above represent the basic rate to include “one” pet.

Equine care
Charges are based on the level of care needed. Winter fees are normally higher than summer. Fees can be quoted after a conversation with the client regarding the level of care involved e.g. skipping out stable, grooming and hoof picking, clearing of field, rugging up and stabling would be substantially more than caring for horses and ponies who "live out" and require minimal care.

Code of Practice
While You're Away sitters work to a comprehensive Code of Practice to ensure that your home and pets receive the very best available care.

If our sitters go out, your home and pets must be left secure. They are instructed not to receive visitors without your prior permission, and will contact our office in the unlikely event of an emergency. The Code also tells sitters to be punctual and to leave your home tidy and clean, plus pets groomed ready for your return. A full copy of the code is available on request.
