Customer Reviews


I have been using Houseguard for a number of years now, quite a few of them looking after our cats and our house when we were away. We no longer have pets but I still rely on Houseguard to keep an eye on our property when we travel. Their services have always been excellent and I plan to keep using them in the future.

Response: Thank you for sharing your Houseguard experience Barb. We appreciate the opportunity to care for your home and pets and look forward to working with you!

This is our second time using HouseGuard. We couldn’t be more pleased with the service we received. Our mail was neatly stacked and sorted, our front sidewalk was shovelled, which we did not expect at all and we had peace of mind that someone was regularly in our home to check on things while we were away.

Response: We truly enjoy knowing you had peace of mind with Houseguard taking care of your home while you are away. Thank you so much for sharing your Houseguard experience Susan.

Our house sitter was pleasant and attentive to our house and pets. We felt secure that should any problem arise, she would be able to deal with it until we could address it. We have used Houseguard for several years with continued good service.

During my time using HOUSEGUARD, I have had two equally excellent house sitters. I trust them completely to watch my furry friend and our house while we’re gone and I know that they will be quick to manage any problems that may arise.

We (would) like to thank-you for your services. It sure has made our jobs so much easier knowing that the properties we held were being maintained & secured. Thank You Again.


I’m writing to tell you of how delighted we are with the service your company and B… G. provided while we were away. Our cats were mischievous and kept B… very busy, and we are ever so grateful for the way she handled things. It sure did our hearts good to know that they and the house were being looked after by such capable hands. You have made yet another very loyal and satisfied customer(s) and we will gladly recommend you to our friends and family. Thank you very much for the excellent service.

We wanted to thank you for your excellent service while we were away and also to commend U… W., who seems to go the “extra” in caring for our cat. We certainly appreciate that. Thank You, again.

I would like to thank you for your support and assistance these past 4 years. You made it much easier to go away on my business trips. It gave me peace of mind to know that my cats and house were being looked after.

Thank you for agreeing to care for D. We haven’t been able to take time away from her for the last few years. We felt that she was in good hands all weekend. Your care for Shelties, older dogs with health concerns, made us feel at ease all weekend

Neil and Nancy S.

Fantastic home & pet sitters! I have been doing business with Houseguard for years now and nothing but praise for them. For very reasonable rates, I have been able to go away, knowing that my cats & home are well taken of. The walk and driveway are cleared and a detailed record of each visit is kept. For a worry-free holiday, my choice is always Houseguard.

My husband and I have used Housegard three times in the past few years. We have always found them to be reliable, professional and very accommodating. This year they went above and beyond to make sure our home was safe and secure when our pipes froze and the water meter cracked. They arranged with the city to have the meter replaced and were very diligent in keeping our home dry, ( no damage at all) keeping us informed every step of the way. They are awesome to have done everything that could be done, we are so appreciative to have them looking after our home and would certainly recommend them to anyone requiring this service. Thank you again Housegard!

Houseguard service was excellent. When my travel plans were suddenly
interrupted Houseguard was flexible enough to accommodate and “get me
out of a jam” by extending their care for thirty-four houseplants, two
kitties, an aging bulldog, two turtles and my precious betta.

As Always! We were totally pleased with Barb P. looking out for our home. She is pleasant caring and responsible – qualities which we appreciate her having! (and best of all – a really nice person!!)

Bonnie H.

This is just to say thank you for the excellent service you provided to us recently. From the moment we met our housesitter, we felt our home would be well taken care of during our week vacation. We were also very impressed with how quickly you responded to our initial e-mail and with the helpful nature of the office staff. When we arrived home it was like we never left. There was a detailed note about when our housesitter had visited, when plants were watered, etc. etc. This was really appreciated. We will be contacting you for our next vacation. It is so great to be able to travel, and to know that our home is being well taken care of. Thanks so much!

Diane & Ron H.

Please accept this letter of deep gratitude for the manner in which your company dealt with a hot water tank gas valve issue at our home while we were on vacation. These issues are the reason for your business and to have Mr. C. and your inside service support handle our problem in such a professional manner exemplifies a very high level of service… Thank you for taking such good care of our home and for allowing me the peace of mind to have a care-free vacation.

Ian C.

Perfect! You guys are great!

Susan Z.

I just wanted to pass on a note that we were most satisfied with your service. J… A. was very professional, friendly and did a terrific job. He kept very good care of our place, communicated all was ok via email and called the post office to hold a package when no one was home. When we came home it was like we had just left. This gives you peace of mind and we better enjoyed our trip because of it . . . I would recommend HOUSEGUARD Housesitters to anyone contemplating the service.

Cal K.

Many Thanks …. Peter C. did a terrific job. We really appreciated knowing our home was well looked after. We will be sure to recommend you guys and we will look forward to using you again in the future.
