Going away on holiday or visiting relatives can leave you wondering what’s going on at home. If you have a pet, you want to be sure all is taken care of and that they are happy and you might not always want to rely on a friend or a neighbour.

Bark and Stride are experienced house-sitters and can look after everything whilst you’re away and if you have animals, make sure they’re all well looked after so they don’t have to leave their familiar environment.
You might also find it comforting to know that it looks like there’s someone at home too, so potential burglars don’t have their eye on the place.
As well as looking after all the animals, simple tasks can be included, such as:
  • Picking up the mail from the floor.
  • Opening and closing certain sets of curtains.
  • Turning lights on and off.
  • Watering plants.
  • Feeding the fish/birds/cat (see separate page on pet-sitting)
  • Taking in the laundry if you left in a hurry.
  • I can even move the car to a different place on the driveway if you’d like!
I can also make sure things are ready for when you get home if you like, by buying some bread and milk for example. Anything’s possible!
Prices for house-sitting start from £35 but as the service is personalised to your requirements, there is no set price. Best to get in touch to discuss everything.
