Getting closer to your pets

BARRY THE BEAGLE: Gets closer to his pet sitter.

FINDING pet sitters via HouseSitMatch means you find people who love pets and have experience in caring for animals of all descriptions.

They love to get close to your pets to ensure they get the attention they need while you are away. Pets sense if the care comes from an animal lover who is comfortable in their company.

More important with HouseSitMatch pets stay in their own homes, comfortable and where they understand the routines and the smells. It makes for a more relaxed pet, and a happier pet owner on holiday with peace of mind.


Here’s what members have said about working with

Quality over quantity

Deserved 5 star rating.

We have always had a brilliant service with HouseSitMatch. We feel secure in the knowledge that the sitters have been police vetted and each time it has been an excellent experience. (In fact in all cases we have become long term good friends with our sitters!) This company is not the largest you’ll find on the web, but where it has the edge is in that personal service with business owner Lamia and her team always being willing to go the extra mile. I would not want to look elsewhere. – Peter – Home and pet owner
