Worldwide Housesitters wanted to highlight a few areas to consider when undertaking a House Sit, especially if this is your first time looking to be a House Sitter, as we want to help it be a positive experience for you and for the pet(s) you will be looking after. Further advice and guidance can be found in the “Help & Advice” section at the bottom of the website, by clicking on the relevant link.
Depending on the length of the House Sit and where the Home Owner is travelling, it would be good to keep them informed on how things are back home. Emailing photos of the pet(s) looking happy and relaxed is a great way of doing this. Having a Skype, FaceTime or similar type of application conversation is again great for reassuring the Home Owner all is good.
On longer House Sits, there maybe situations that occur that you need to communicate to the Home Owner, such as appliance failures, water leaks or general household repairs. Again, emailing photos and details is helpful and agree plans on how these situations are handled before the House Sit starts.
