Why consider pet sitting as an owner?
If you’re thinking about pet sitting, you’re almost certainly coming at
it from one of two angles – that of the home owner, or that of the sitter.
Therefore, we’ll cover it from both sides, starting with the owner.
Pet sitting is quite simply one of the easiest and best ways to have someone
take care of your home and your pets whilst you are away. Prior to the growth
of the modern pet sitting movement, home owners with pets would be required
to either send their pets to the kennels or the cattery, or to have a neighbour
or friend come round to feed and look after the pets. Neither of these options
are terribly appealing – the costs of kennels and catteries really add up, and
there is a strong change your beloved pet would utterly hate their time there,
and maybe even come back traumatized. Alternatively, the use of a neighbour
or friend to check in on your pets was in some ways better, however you were
then reliant entirely on the availability of that person. For example, if
it’s high season and they are on holiday themselves, then you’re out of
luck and you’ll just have to wait till they are around. In addition,
most people are no doubt busy, therefore they are not going to have the
time to be at your house for long – perhaps they only pop in a for a few
minutes to feed the pet before heading off.
It was out of the gaps in this approach that the modern pet sitting movement
was born. When you use pet sitters as a home owner, you have a huge range of
pet sitters that are available throughout the year, all willing to look after
your pets for free. What’s more, you can be confident that they will be at
the home far more often than a friend or neighbour, for example they are
sure to be sleeping at the home. In addition, when you use our partners'
platform you can ensure that the sitters are all vetted and reviewed, and
you have the chance to speak to them extensively before they move in. Of
course a great many pet sitters are pet lovers themselves, so will be
able to give plenty of time and love to your furry friends. Because of
this, you can go on holiday more easily and worry free, and all whilst
making considerable savings.
Why consider pet sitting as a sitter?
Pet sitting isn’t only a good deal for the owner, it’s also a fabulous
deal for the sitter as well. Pet sitting enables you to travel the world
for a dramatically reduced cost. In the past, if you wanted to see a new
country or city you’d have to pay for an expensive and generally soulless
hotel, however with a pet sitting platform you can choose from a great
selection of warm and cozy houses and apartments, all for free!
In addition, the houses that you pet sit in will often be in fantastic
spots that you would not have discovered or known about without finding
them on the platform. It’s a really great way to experience areas that
are off the tourist trail, and you regularly get very authentic experiences
and a chance to live like a local. Moreover, of course it goes without
saying that you will meet plenty of lovely, lively and friendly pets as
well! If you’re an animal lover, it’s a wonderful way to see the world
as well as to spend some quality time with some new four legged (or
more, or less!) friends.
How does the pet sitting platform work?
As mentioned, we have partnered with one of the biggest names in the business,
Trusted Housesitters. Therefore the process to find a pet sitting location couldn’t
be easier – simply click on the banner or the book here button at the top of
the page, and you will be redirected to the Trusted Housesitters website. From
here all you need to do is select ‘Search for homes to sit’, enter the location
you would like to pet sit in, and you’ll be able to see all the listings in
this area. To see a listing in detail you will need to sign up for an account,
but this is very straightforward and you can even use your Facebook account
if you like.
As a home owner, the process to find a pet sitter is extremely similar. Again
you will need to click on the banner or book now button to be taken to our
partner’s website. From here you simply choose ‘Finding a pet sitter’. You’ll
then automatically be presented with a list of all the pet sitters available
nearby. Again, to actually interact with a sitter you will need to set up an
account, which is extremely quick.
Pet sitting – discover new places and new pets!
Overall, we think that the growth of pet sitting is extremely positive, as
it allows people to see the world for free, or at least a far reduced cost –
both owners and sitters. Of course, for sitters you also get to meet lots of
lovely new pets as well, and it really is a way to experience life like a
local, as there is a strong change you won’t be stuck right in the middle
of a tourist trap since that tends to not be where a great many local love.
For the increasing number of people who can work remotely, pet sitting also
opens up a whole new world of possibilities, since they can travel round
the world whilst also having the comfort of a home and a place to work.
We hope you enjoy your pet sitting experience with We Can Help With and
