Long-term sits

You're welcome to stay a while

While many members like to fill their year with a wide range of wonderful sits, some sitters prefer one or two long-term sits. Whether it’s a few months or several seasons, long-term sits offer more time to settle in, soak up your surroundings, and really bond with your new pet friends.

Your home away from home

With sits in over 130 countries, there are so many pets to meet and places to see. But there’s something special about staying in the same place with the same pets. A new environment will become a familiar home — a place you make fond memories with unforgettable pet friends.

Live like a true local

A long-term sit is a unique chance to immerse yourself in the community and experience real life in a new location. In fact, members often share stories about discovering the area’s secret spots, volunteering at community events, and even making lifelong friends.

Thinking of moving somewhere far away?

What better way to decide whether you want to live somewhere than by, well, living there? Long-term house sits are a great way to try out life in a new location and get a head start on settling in. Imagine the new friends you could meet while on your morning dog walks.

I'm so happy I was referred to TrustedHousesitters. I was booked almost instantly on a long-term assignment that I loved! The pets were such fun to be with, the owners really lovely people. TrustedHousesitters is a blessing for those who love to travel, and the website is easy to use, so well put together. Thanks, folks.

These past seven months I've been on a long-term housesitting assignment in a lovely cottage just outside Bath, UK. The homeowners were working abroad and wanted to know that their house would be loved and looked after. I'm a writer and needed some space to work on my novel. What a win-win situation!


I'm sitting in the French sunshine, with a sleepy cat beside me in the shade, writing this review. My fiancé and I are on a long-term house-sit in a beautiful part of the world, and I get to practice my French too, yay!
