Hi, I’m Michelle McDines – and this is my dog Eddie.

The Happy Housesitter is my latest online (ad)venture.

Having become a fulltime housesitter in 2017, I wanted to share some stories about our adventures, some tips and advice based on our experiences and signpost useful websites, products, services and other resources that my fellow housesitters – or those thinking of becoming a housesitter – might find useful.

For fun, I’ve also started designing my own range of fun t-shirts and other clothing and accessories featuring phrases and images that will (hopefully) appeal to house and pet sitters everywhere.

For transparency, please be aware that some of the links, adverts and other images on this site are affiliate links. All that means is that I will receive a small commission if you follow a link and become a customer of the company involved. It doesn’t make any difference to the price you pay – other than often I have managed to get a discount for you. Rest assured that if I don’t believe a product or service has value I will not be recommending it.

If you like my site, and would be interested in having your own website – whether it’s for housesitting or something completely different, do get in touch. Website development is what I do when I’m not feeding, walking or cuddling other people’s pets!

Spread the word, share the love
