HOUSEGUARD vs. Kennels

Why choose in-home pet care with Houseguard rather than Kennels? The benefits to in-home pet care for you and your pet(s) are tremendous. Much of the stress they feel while you are away is eliminated by remaining in their familiar environment.

Going on Vacation? Do You Know What You’ve Agreed To Do With Your Insurer?

Your arrangements are finalized, your bags are packed, and you’ve arranged with someone to pick up the mail and clear the snow from the front walk.  You’re all set to leave, or perhaps as I’ve done many times, you’ve headed up north for a couple nights and it quickly...

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!

Bonnie H.

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.

Kathy W.

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.

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.

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.

P…, I can’t thank you enough . . . . Your support and care of D. at a most trying time in our lives was a godsend. Thank You.

Betsy T.

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.

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.

Congratulations on your achievement in the BBB Awards (saw it . . ) that is wonderful and well deserved.

Dan, Liz, Joshua, and Buster

First of all I would like to express my sincere satisfaction with the House-Pet sitter Lorraine B. …. L. sent me almost daily updates, via email, letting me know how my little dog was doing ….. I will definitely recommend your company to any one who is looking for a House – Pet sitter. I am so happy that I found your company. That relieves a lot of stress if I ever want to be away ….

G. M.

V… and I want to let you know that our experience of D… P…’s care of our pets goes a great deal further than what is outlined in our contract with you. D… met us at home upon our return, drove us to the vet and D… drove us home again. During the time we were away D… was a ready companion to our very sick dog and continued to visit her even though she was at the vet. They told us he dropped by every day during our absence, in addition to coming to the house, as we had agreed. We are touched beyond words by D…’s compassion and kindness, not only to our dogs, but to us. Thank you for a remarkable service, and for connecting us with D… P… in particular. We can certainly understand… his common sense, good timing and deep compassion for others served him well.

Brenda & V.P.

Thank you for the great service you always render. T. and S. are very lucky – they always have SUPERB walkers.

Irene C.

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.

We very much enjoyed having Roy watch the dogs – he was wonderful and provided a great account of his visit. Thanks again.

Catherine & Kelly

The last few months have been especially good for (J.) with the addition of C… to her life – I cannot tell you how grateful we have been for C…’s attention, devotion and love . . . I would like to thank everyone at HOUSEGUARD . . .

Erica L.

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.


Fabulous service – have recommended it to several others. Great when you have no family here.
