Houseand Pet Sitting provided by responsible, mature animal lovers
We take great care in the recruitment of our sitters; interviewing potential house and pet sitters in their own homes. Because we take up character references and police disclosures, as well as spending time with potential sitters at the interview, we learn a lot about "who they are" as people.
Our sitters are retired / early-retired people with a zest for life and respect for other people's homes. The nature of the work means that they are active, caring people who are experienced with animals. We have couples and single sitters working with us, all matched with the individual client's requirements.
Our sitters come to meet you and your pets at a mutually convenient time before the assignment date. They will come with our While You’re Away Ltd. check list to be completed, listing your precise needs and those of your pets.
Your sitters will discuss everything with you, from precise care of your pets, possibly administering medication’, to mowing your lawn and caring for plants, or even a lift to a nearby airport / railway station.
We do not charge for the sitters' pre-visit, we simply ask you to pay for the sitters' return fuel allowance. Please see our scale of charges page.
