House Sitting Resources

Welcome to the house sitting corner of our website! On this page we've compiled all of our resources on house sitting: our book, popular articles for pet sitters and pet owners, and our podcast, The House Sitting Travel Podcast.

The House Sitting Travel Podcast

House Sitting Travel is the first podcast on the topic of house sitting to travel the world. In this method of house sitting, house sitters provide pet and home care in exchange for accommodation. Neither house sitter nor pet owner pays for this exchange - it's a win-win for both sides! Hosts Sam and Veren of Alternative Travelers bring the house sitting community together in podcast form for the first time, featuring inspiring interviews with globe trotting house sitters as well as tips, advice, and stories to help you live your dream life through house sitting.
