10 Years of TrustedHousesitters: Class of 2012

Danielle Petch

This month, we’re celebrating TrustedHousesitters’ 10-year anniversary. That’s ten whole years (or 60, in dog years!) of keeping pets happy at home and connecting pet lovers from all across the globe.

While our celebrations this year might be a little different to how we’d planned, we’ve been taking a walk down memory lane and looking back on ten whole years of TrustedHousesitters, and raising a bowl to the pets — and people — that made it happen!

In loving memory of "BB" Barney Bear... Class of 2012

Meet BB, the sweet Labrador Retriever representing our Class of 2012. BB's owner, Malcolm, joined TrustedHousesitters back in 2012 and over the years he and BB welcomed sitters from all corners of the world...

“Sweet BB is a laid back dude always willing to participate and hang with the pack. He is truly ‘Man’s Best Friend’, rain or shine.” — Paul and Karen, USA

Since 2012, BB had just over 30 sitters come and care for him, which kept him where he was happiest — in the comfort of his own home, making new human sitter friends, while welcoming walks and cuddles as often as he was given the chance...

"BB loved staying in the comfort of his home, keeping his routines, making new friends and being loved." — Malcolm, BB's owner

BB has sadly now crossed the rainbow bridge, so 2012 is dedicated in his loving memory. BB, a big thank you — from all those who knew and loved you.

“Friendly, loving and the sweetest golden Labrador, he stole our hearts and has left us with the most amazing memories over this extended period of lockdown.” — Michael, UK
