Urban Tailz House Sitting Services
Thank you so much for your interest in our house sitting services.
How our house sitting works is you’ll let us know when you’d like us to move into your home and then when you’d like us to move out that last day before you arrive back home. We’ll move into your home and spend most of our free time taking care of your pup, and doing anything you need done around the house (bringing in the mail, watering plants, etc). We also send a quick 10-question questionnaire on rules of the house so you and your house sitter are on the same page about the rules of your home while they are living there.
There might be times we need to leave your home to do other walks, run errands, etc, but we will never leave your pup for more than 4 hours at a time and no more than 8 hours in a day. We’ll make sure your pup is fed during their normal feeding schedule, and we’ll make sure they get plenty of walks and playtime while we’re living in your home. We send fun updates throughout each day letting you know how the day is going, and will include lots of fun pictures of how we spent our day playing. We try to make your time away as stress-free as possible.
Our house sitting rate is all-inclusive so there is no extra charge for walks.
We charge our house sittings like a hotel stay, so full price is charged for each day the house sitter spends the night. There is then a sliding scale the final day when you arrive home depending on how long you need your house sitter to stay before you arrive back home.
We have many great house sitters and always try to keep thing as consistent as possible, so we’ll figure out what sitter works best for your needs and schedule, and will always ask them first when you need to schedule a house sitting. We set up an initial meeting with you and the house sitter so they can meet your pet and so you can go over everything with them. If for some reason your usual sitter is unavailable during one of your subsequent schedule requests, we will find a suitable replacement and have them come over beforehand so you and your pup can meet them as well.
PLEASE NOTE: We do require a proper bed for our house sleepers to sleep on. A couch or air mattress is unacceptable. We want our sitters to feel comfortable while they’re sleeping in your home!
