My mission in setting up Peace of Mind UK House and Pet Sitting has been to offer the ideal solution for ensuring your home and pets are properly cared for. You have the dual reassurance of friendly and experienced live-in professionals you will get to know, and the reliability that comes with a paid service. 

I’ve been providing high calibre long term property guardianship and pet care for over 4 years now. I have trusted processes in place to make sure things run as smoothly as possible from start to finish.

Building a relationship with our clients – before during and after the sit – is important to us, as I’m sure it is to you.

Over the years, I’ve learned plenty about what home owners really want from in-house pet sitting, including their main concerns and what they don’t want. I’ve heard a fair few horror stories of free ‘holiday’ sitters who can often cancel last minute or leave the place a mess. And then there’s the lack of warmth or understanding of agency placements – you don’t usually meet your assigned sitter assigned until the actual day they arrive on your doorstep!

At Peace of Mind, we are committed to helping you balance what we know to be most important to you with UK home and pet sitting – reliability, cost and feeling comfortable with someone.

Reputable and dependable house sitters with a personal touch is the best of both worlds – experience you can trust, and absolute peace of mind.

All things considered, you want to find a long term UK house and pet sitter who gives you that wonderful ‘peace of mind’ feeling about your trip away. 

So have a browse around the site here,  there’s lots of helpful advice and guidance whether you’re new to house and pet sitting or you’ve been around the block a few times.

Peace of Mind specialises in LONG-TERM house/pet sitting & home guardianship. It’s intended for people who spend extended time away at a second home, work abroad or on world travel tours.

I do not currently offer short term sits of less than one month. However, if you live in or around Leicestershire, my colleague Jill is available for weekends or sits of a few weeks.

Much as I love to connect with people and their pets, it’s really sad when I have to say ‘no’ to enquirers, so please make sure you check availability and confirm your location for any short term sit requests.
