At Derby Pet Sitters we provide House Sitting (in the clients home - not boarding) ranging from one evening through to substantially longer periods, predominantly to cover holidays or clients working away from home.  Demand for house sitting is high and thus to ensure availability it is better to book well in advance.


These assignments include staying overnight and the care of any domestic pets (daily walking, feeding, cleaning etc). We do not charge individually per pet meaning that a prospective client can make a considerable saving compared to traditional boarding, as well as having first rate 1-to-1 care. Some insurance companies can even lower your premiums based on the fact that a sitter is employed during the periods that you are away from your property. The sitter takes on various responsibilities for the owner:

  • keeping the house clean and tidy;

  • taking telephone messages;

  • dealing with mail, milk & newspapers;

  • dealing with callers;

  • watering houseplants etc.


Clients can expect complete honesty, reliability and that the sitter will take precautions to ensure that a client’s absence from home is not detected because of any careless actions or disclosures.  The sitter would attempt to replicate the routine of the client and wouldn't leave the pet/s for any period longer than 3 hours.  Unless absolutely necessary we wouldn't expect pets to be left alone after 7pm.


It would be the clients responsibility to provide pet food, however, the sitter would bring their own food.  As a goodwill gesture clients usually leave basics such as tea, coffee, sugar etc.  There are no extra charges for seasonality, petrol or a food allowance.
