Top Ten Reasons to Pet Sit
10 of the best reasons to pet sit or host in Costa Rica. We will look first from the perspective of
pet sitters, and then from that of hosts.
It's super affordable. Being a pet
sitter is one of the best and most economical ways to travel the
world, hands down. There are few if any other ways to make such
impressive savings on accommodation than pet sitting, and if you're
looking to travel long term, pet sitting makes this very possible.
Even if you're not travelling for a very long length of time, one
other benefit that pet sitting offers is that the savings you do
make on the accommodation can be recycled back into the holiday
to spend on even better experiences instead. So pet sitting will
either save you money or enable you to dramatically improve your
experiences whilst on your trip.
You'll meet many wonderful pets.
Another incredible benefit of pet sitting is of course all the fantastic
pets that you get to meet as part of the experience. You get to be a very
major part of these pets lives, even if just for a while, and you can be
satisfied that they are having a much more positive time with their owners
gone than they would if you were not there to look after them. These pets
may also help you explore more of the city and experience life like a
local, especially if they need to be taken out for walks and so on.
Pet sitting is a revelation for digital nomads.
Digital nomads (or 'location independent workers' as they may sometimes
be referred to) stand to gain a lot from the growth of the pet sitting
movement. If you are part of this growing tribe, pet sitting allows you to
travel round the world whilst also having a stable place to work – this is
especially significant since digital nomads are always at the mercy of WiFi
to some extent. The WiFi used at pet sitters' homes tends is far more likely
to be fast and unlimited, which is mainly what location independent workers
desire. It is likely to be much faster, cheaper and reliable than coffee shop
WiFi for example.
You get to see new areas. Pet sitting is unique
as it really allows you to explore new areas and really live like a local. With
pet sitting, you're far more likely to end up in a true residential area lived
in by actual locals than a standard tourist trap, as you would generally find
with hotels for example. Therefore, you can explore a site of the city or other
location that very few travellers will ever get to see. You be around the same
cafes, be able to frequent the same bars and restaurants and so on. Your holiday
will likely be far more authentic and also probably more affordable, as
non-tourist areas also tend to have much cheaper options available to the locals.
We have partnered with the best in the business.
At We Can Help With, we have partnered with Trusted Housesitters, who are one of the
biggest names in pet sitting. Therefore, you can be sure that you'll be able to
search the widest range of available homes, meaning that you have more options and
locations when it comes to finding somewhere to stay. Because our partners are large
and well established, there are also plenty of historic reviews for hosts. This is
important as you want to be able to read reviews of hosts and pick those which
you think you would be the most comfortable pet sitting for.
Cost savings. Moving on to home and pet owners now,
one of the major benefits of pet sitting is that you stand to make huge savings on
the cost of housing and looking after your pets whilst you are away. Kennels,
catteries and so on are not cheap at all, and keeping your pets there for long
will dramatically increase the cost of your holiday. Moreover, if you have an
exotic or rare pet, then finding specialist care for them can be even harder and
more expensive, or simply impossible. With your pets being looked after by a
sitter, you can use that money to extend your holiday or simply take more holidays
More natural experience for pets. Another large
benefit for home owners, is that having a sitter look after their pets in their
home is a far more preferable and comforting experience for the pet. Most pets
ultimately crave routine and can get very upset when taken away from their homes
or radically taken out of routine. A cattery or kennels for example will likely
be very frightening, as the poor creatures need to deal with new handlers, new
smells, a new location and of course lots of often noisy and unfamiliar animals
around them. With pet sitting, you can even speak to the sitter in advance and
ensure that they follow the routine that you would normally do as much as
possible too, further smoothing over the process for your pets.
Your home is also being looked after. With pet
sitting you get more than just your pet looked after, you also get someone
watching over your home as an added bonus. Because there is so much opportunity
to speak to your sitter before the actual sit starts, you can let them know
about anything things to watch out for in your home, and for example if there
was a small leak, smell of gas or other problem, the sitter would at the very
least be able to alert you, and in most cases could probably fix it themselves.
It also makes your home less vulnerable to theft, as having a home that looks
lived in, with lights turning on and maybe the television flickering, for example,
will deter potential theft.
Pet sitters are around more. Somewhat related to the
point above, a major benefit of a pet sitter is that they are simply around your
home more than if you asked a friend or family member to pop round and look after
your pets. This is because you know that they will be cooking the vast majority of
their meals at the property, possibly working at the property, and of course resting
and sleeping a the property, in much the same way as they would a hotel. Pet
sitting appeals to those who want to save on their accommodation, therefore they
will likely want to cook at your home too, as this save a very large amount of
money vs eating out all day. Therefore, your pet will have far more company and at
different points during the day than if you more informally had a friend look after
Great choice of sitters. We have partnered with the
largest name in the pet sitting business, which means that you get a huge choice of
sitters. You can probably find sitters all year round, and given that there is so
much choice, you have far more options when it comes to verifying that the sitters
are reliable and safe. For example, the top or most experienced sitters will have
plenty of reviews, and because of this you can choose only the most suitable ones
to pet sit at your home. You will also find sitters who are comfortable with a
very wide range of animals, which will certainly help if you are looking for a
sitter for a more unusual species of pet.
