Q: What is the difference between the different statuses, that the sitters are each assigned.


We have a system to make our House Sitting Services affordable to all our Clients, depending on their needs.

Our House Sitters are assigned with a status / ranking depending on their performance:

1. Pro Status
2. Regular Status
3. Beginner Status

This will encourage our sitters to try harder to work themselves up the rankings. What this means to our clients (short version):

1. Pro Status – Clients who require these Sitters will be charged R20 extra per night.

Only our Top sitters will reach this status
Have been house sitting for Occupied House Sitters for 6 or more months
Have only received top ratings from our clients
LOVE animals and know how to really give them a lot of attention
Quick to respond
Excellent service delivered to clients
Goes the extra mile, and are always available and willing to help out in case of emergency bookings.

2. Regular Status – Clients pay our normal price which has not increased since 2008.

These are our regular reliable sitters
They have done regular sittings for Occupied House Sitters
They have received good ratings from our clients
They love animals

3. Beginner Status – Clients get a R20 per night discount.

The discount is to give our new sitters a chance to become regulars
These sitters are new
They have not house sat for Occupied House Sitters
They have been screened, references checked and interviewed

If you have any questions regarding our new system, please do not hesitate to ask me.
