taking care of owners’ pets.
An Exclusive ServiceThe personalised service provided by Town & Country

assess what sort of person would be best suited
to you and your animals.
Town & Country Homesit, the first of its kind in the South Island, was established in 2000 in Canterbury.
Town & Country Homesit offers an extensive home sitting and pet minding service for both residential city/town properties, rural lifestyle blocks and small farms, providing security for your home and allowing your pets to remain in a secure and familiar environment.
What Is Homesitting?
Homesitting is peace of mind.
You can leave your pets in their familiar environment. Keeping to their normal routine greatly reduces stress.
Your homesitter can take on household responsibilities such as: taking care of your pets (providing medication, exercise and diet), performing general maintenance (including pools, lawns, etc.), and, in general, making sure that everything runs smoothly just as if you were at home.
Burglary and vandalism are often deterred by the sheer presence of someone at the property. Sitters provide a general presence in your absence to discourage intruders; collecting mail, answering the phone and providing light garden care.
Why Use Our Homesitters?
Expert care for pets, from simply feeding & exercising to caring for pets with medications or special dietary needs.
Our homesitters also provide general maintenance in your absence, discouraging potential intruders.
Our homesitters are thoroughly screened and checked through the Department of Courts for your peace of mind.
