When you secure your House Sitters through Critter Caretakers we will not charge you any fees for last minutes schedules or cancelation fees, something most if not all other house sitters commonly do.

Each House Sitter must pass a background check, this is not optional! They must also have Insurance and Theft Bonding in date and in place for each visit

Visits are booked with Critter Caretakers every week and we have never refused a booking due to capacity issues.

The cost of a House Sitter may surprise you – in a good way! That’s because there’s an House Sitter waiting for your booking for which we charge competitive prices. We are not the cheapest house sitting service (you can get those prices along with lower levels of service from other providers), but we are the best house sitting service and whilst our prices remain very competitive and in most cases lower that others who strive to offer the level of service for house services that we do

Also, in all other cases, it’s not what you pay for house sitting, it’s what you pay if you don’t end up taking the service. Always check out the fees that other House Sitters charge especially when you want a last minute booking, or may have to cancel at late notice.

Critter Caretaker Pet Services will never charge you any such fees. We value our clients too much to do that!
