House sittersHobart & Tasmania sites a few things to consider
This is a good idea until something goes wrong.
I do not charge you to be on a site and then leave you to your own devices.I operate a very affordable house sitting service that you pay for.The amount of people we have to get out of trouble because of free house sitters who decide they don’t want to be there any more or the pets are a pain & driving them insane is huge.Or a better house sit prospect has come through and they want to cancel yours at the last minute.Whether it is a free house sitting service or friends or family when they do let you down it is always at the last minute or whilst you are away already.This is very distressing to the house and pet owner. We get most of our business from free house sitting services who stuff up.Or need us to go in asap to take over
This is just one example but we have many but the blog would be way to long so we will just use this one for an example. We went into one just last week the free sitter who was leaving we met with to get the keys from her & take over.The dog jumped up on her a she smacked it in the head really hard and screamed at the dog.I was horrified & this lady minds peoples pets omg.I have people on the phone crying to me needing us to do an emergency take overs all the time and most of the time the owners are out of the state very distressing for the house owners. For me these free services supply me with great new clients as they will never want to get burnt again.
With my House sitters.I screen them personally. Have them police checked.I check their references.I supply insurance coverage over your pets and liability.All my sitters are pets CPR & pets first aid trained we have OH&S seminars 3 times a year.As well as pet behavior seminars,we give our sitters 24/7 support.The sitters keep you updated with photos and emails if you request.If an emergency comes up & a sitter needs to leave we have another professional sitter to stand in.You get to have a free meet n greet with the sitter and interview them and show & tell them what you would like them to do for your pets and home.I follow up & call the the owners of the house after each house sit to see how it went to keep track to make sure my sitters are staying up to a very good standard & to make sure that the owners are happy.Happy owners are clients for life!
I don’t think these house sitter services do this.I think its a good idea, and I am sure there is some really great sitters out there.But the old saying you get what you pay for is so true.My sitters get paid for what they do & live in your area and want to get repeat business.So they do their best this is a job to them.Our services are still cheaper than kennels in most cases so its a win win all around.Be careful I have interviewed over 300 potential sitters in 4 years and have only employed 20.You need to know what to look for.Good luck to everyone & remember if your pets are demanding a free service is not always the best way to go.But its your pets and home & your decision. We care for all types of pets domestic and rural If you would like t0 have a chat or look at our website www.pettaxi.net.au PH 0428568852
