Free House sitters

House sitters Hobart & 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

Why pet minding & Pet sitting and feeding services?

  •  Reduced stress on pets because pets are cared for in their own homes
  • No “travel trauma” to pets because they do not need to be transported anywhere
  • Exposure to illnesses and parasites of other animals is minimized
  • Required vaccinations are often less restrictive than those necessary at a kennel
  • Pets stay on their regular routines and do not need to adapt to a new environment
  • Not having to deal with neighbors, friends or family members feeling that they are inconvenienced

Professional pet sitters are often licensed, and insured for liability including care, custody, and control of the pets in their care. Many pet sitters are also bonded or insured for theft. Pet sitters usually have training, such as pet first ai, or pet sitting accreditation. A number of professional organizations exist to help pet sitters improve their services.

Services

There are many different services which can be offered by pet sitters.

Vacation care

During vacation pet sitting, a pet sitter visits a client’s home several times, as required. The exact length of visit is determined by both pet owners and pet sitters, averaging from fifteen to forty-five minutes. Typical services offered include: providing the pets’ customary diet and exercise routine, administration of medications, vitamins, and other special care, monitoring health and arranging for medical treatment in case of illness. Most pet sitters bill clients on a per-visit or per-day basis, including additional charges for multiple pets, travel expenses, and special tasks. Less commonly, pet sitters offer live-in care. Pet sitters also provide house sitting in conjunction with vacation pet care.

Dog walking

Main article: Dog walking

Pet sitters also provide dog walking services. Disabled clients and the elderly often hire pet sitters to exercise and care for their pets if they are unable to do so.

Pet sitters may also offer other more aggressive methods of exercise for dogs during dog walking appointments. These may include jogging, running, or doggy parks and beaches with client dogs.

Dog Boarding

Main article: Dog Boarding

Pet sitters may also offer Home Dog Boarding. Much like traditional house sitting – this involves the dog boarding in the sitter’s own home environment. Allowing increased levels of exercise and play, confidence and social skills. Stress relief and alleviation of boredom. Constant supervision from a caring staff of one. Good behaviour and manners are promoted and rewarded and this provides peace of mind that the dog is safe and happy without the guilty feeling about leaving the pet home alone.

House sitting

Kimberly’s House sitting makes your pets Happy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

House sitting is the practice whereby a landlord (or “homeowner”), leaving their house for a period of time, entrusts it to one or more “house sitters”, who by a mutual agreement are entitled to live there for a fee  for caring for pets and providing other duties in the house and on the property in exchange for assuming responsibilities such as taking care of the homeowner’s pets, performing general maintenance and keeping trespassers off the property, readdressing the mail, and in general, making sure that everything runs smoothly just as if the owner was at home.

It is also generally implied that crime is deterred by the presence of the house sitter. This is supported by the fact that insurance companies in the United Kingdom provide reduced rates for householders who use the services of house sitting agencies. Some insurance companies will void your policy if the house is left vacant for more than 30 days without prior arrangement. House sitting is therefore considered a practical solution to managing properties which would otherwise stand vacant for long periods of time. In the UK, however, home owners are usually careful not to leave their properties in the care of a house sitter for longer than 12 months. It is often recommended that an agreement or form of contract is drawn up to ensure both parties are happy with the terms agreed.

In Australia, there can be insurance company issues with leaving homes empty for more than four days. Therefore it is important to have someone enter your home at least once for every four days you are absent. Hiring a house sitter can provide the support and documentation you need to help you in the event that you may need to make a claim with your insurance company.

A newly developed version of house sitting which has gained widespread acceptance, is the contracting of house sitters who do not live on premises. This house sitting arrangement requires the house sitter to provide regular visits to the homeowner’s house. The frequency of visits is determined in advance and is not less than the minimum requirements as stipulated by the homeowner’s insurance policy. This type of service can perform similar functions as mentioned above. It is becoming more popular as many homeowners do not wish to have someone living in their house while they are away.

The whole practice is on a fee basis depending on how many pets if any and duties you wish then to perform, notably a security deposit is but down as soon as the house sitter has been chosen by you.Then full payment is to be received before the job commences or on the day the house sit starts. (as its share of the benefits is larger: typically, this is considered to be the house sitter).
