House sitting was a new concept for kiwis when we began in 1998. Being one of just two agencies in NZ it took a bit of time to get the concept of house sitting off the ground. In those early days everything was organized by phone and house sits were confirmed with a handshake.
Fast forward 10 years and house sitting had become a common term, but one synonymous with risk as most websites were offering an ‘internet dating’ approach to house sitting. This was great for those willing to trust ‘JoeBloggs@gmail.com’ with their pets and property, but many pet owners wanted a more secure and professional service. The Housesitting Company stepped in to fill that space. We made it our mission to provide the simplest, quickest and most affordable solution for reliable pet care. All our sitters go through an induction process and we only recruit the very best personnel in our industry. For our customers, reliable sitters = peace of mind.
The Housesitting Company is a family business that operates nationwide from offices in Auckland and Tauranga. We ourselves have been sitters with over 100 sits between us, so we know our industry inside-out. When we took over The Housesitting Company in 2009, our goal was to build the agency we wished was around when we were house sitting. Today we can confidently say that The Housesitting Company has exceeded our expectations for excellence. We hope you will give us the opportunity to serve you and your pets in the not too distant future.
