Patch loves his house-sitter

Patch’s owners came to us looking for a trustworthy house-sitter who would love their puppy and care for him while they were away. 

They hadn’t planned on taking a four-week holiday before their new puppy was a year old and fully trained, but sometimes an opportunity arises that can’t be missed. So it was for Paddy and Claire.

They joined HouseSitMatch as homeowners and placed and advert for a house-sitter. Shortly after posting an advert they interviewed six house-sitters who applied; finally, they decided on a young professional woman who was taking a year long career break, house-sitting her way around Europe. They chatted online, and as soon as they felt she met the brief, they accepted her.

Shortly after their return from holiday, they contacted us to tell us what a fabulous trip they had enjoyed with full peace of mind knowing she was caring for Patch, sending them photos every day.
