WHAT WE DO
We provide bookings for overnight sitters for your home and your pets. Each sitter is an independent contractor (not an employee) so sets their own rates and works for themselves. We just help you find and book someone who will suit your needs best, by showing availability calendars for each sitter, providing information about them, doing background checks, and interviewing each sitter in person. Anchorage Dog Sitters charges a small fee per booking (no more than once per month if you have multiple bookings), which helps provide insurance for your pets during the dates of the bookings.
DeEtta Muir, owner of Anchorage Dog Sitters and Anchorage Dog Walkers, knows the challenges of finding quality house sitters for her own pets and her clients' pets. She strives to find the best sitters (some of which are also employees of Anchorage Dog Walkers) who she would trust with her own house and pets.
You can look through the profiles of our sitters to see who might suit your needs best and who might be available during your future trips. We have provided photos and information about each sitter and you can contact them via email to discuss your needs in more detail, as needed. When you find someone who will be a good fit, you can book and pay for the overnight stay on this website. We will confirm each booking and you can rest assured knowing your pets will be taken care of while you're away.
We have provided informational resources on this website to help guide you and your sitters. When you meet with your sitter, it is a good idea to create a contract, which clearly states what is expected from each party involved and what rules might exist for your house and pets. We also suggest providing detailed information about the house and pets, so your sitter knows how much to feed, what type of collar/leashes to use for walks, if there are any medical concerns, if there are any behavioral issues, vet information, etc.
Anchorage Dog Sitters is happy to help connect pet owners with quality pet sitters. Please let us know if we can help guide you further so you can relax during your upcoming trip.
