Lamia Walker – Do you have dogs who love company? Find dog-sitters

Benji and Jonty tend to stay at home when their owner travel. She finds dog-sitters for them

Finding dog-sitters through Housesit Match gives peace of mind

Benji and Jonty’s owner travels quite a bit. And she can’t always find sitters nearby. So she places an advert on HouseSitMatch and the checked house-sitters apply through the site. The house-sitting is undertaken as a fair exchange for both parties. No money changes hands the dogs are cared for by pet lovers, in the dogs’ own home.

It’s a fair exchange

All our sitters offer a fair exchange – free accommodation for free pet care and an online review. It’s a win win!
