House sitters for your pets and home

About us

Homesitters is Britain’s leading home and pet-sitting company, providing complete peace of mind for property owners and their insurers. Founded in September 1980, we have many years’ of experience in looking after our clients’ pets and most treasured possessions.

The concept is simple: we provide a live-in service while you’re away, so your home is secure and well-maintained and your pets enjoy companionship in familiar surroundings. We have an extensive network of homesitters across England, Wales and Scotland, all meticulously vetted, DBS checked and fully insured, and we provide 24/7 back-up throughout their stay.

Our clients don’t just call us when they go on holidays or business trips. We care for homes that are awaiting probate, sale or repossession or are between tenants, and we offer civilised caretakers and site management for empty properties too.

Homesitters can provide a homesitter from just a couple of days to months or even years. We normally have a two-day minimum charge, however we also offer a special one-day service for clients attending events such as weddings or funerals, so you can relax in the knowledge that your home and pets are in safe hands.
