5 Ways a Pet Sitter Can Make Your Home More Secure
#1. Turn the lights on and off
Drive or take a stroll down the street in the evening and look at the houses. You probably just assume that there’s someone home when you see a lit house and no one home when the house is dark. A house that is dark all day and night or lit 24 hours a day is a sure sign that no one’s home.
Turning lights off during the day and on in the evening will give your home a lived in look and that’s just what your professional pet sitter will do.
#2. Pick up the post
Overflowing post can alert neighbours and those of unsavoury character that you’re not home. We pick up the post and put it in a secure place in your home to ensure that none of it gets lost and to give the appearance that someone is home like normal.
This means you can check through your post at your leisure once you are home.

#3. Bring in the bins
Bins left outside after rubbish pickup provides pretty solid clues that no one is home. We will bring in your bins and put them out again just in time for pickup to give an appearance that someone is home.
It’s very annoying if you miss bin collection days and then have a build up of rubbish with nowhere to put it – we can make sure bin collections aren’t missed.
#4. Take immediate action in an emergency
Imagine returning to a flooded home. Fortunately, we can take immediate action, starting with contacting you immediately, when the unexpected occurs, which will help minimize the risk of long term damage to your home.
We also take emergency contact details so if we can’t get hold of you we can contact them instead.

#5. Be discreet
But, all of those precautions become meaningless if you do not have a pet sitter who remains discreet at all times. Pet Sitters Ireland’s pet sitters never wear uniforms nor do they display signs on their vehicles. Discretion is key to ensuring your pets’ and your home’s security.
We want to provide you with a discreet and professional service – which leaves you and your pets happy.
