To attract more people, I advertise as a Free sitter. However, I have had owners who advertised a paid sit, and chose me. Those sits ranged from 2-weeks to 2-months.

We asked Cony to sit our home and farm for two weeks and we were very pleased to come back to a very clean house, pool, spa and farm. He took very good care of all our animals. We have requested him again, for a full month this time. I think this says a lot about the trust we put in Cony. He understands our needs very well and provides impeccable service. Highly recommend him.
 
GENEVIEVE ( Georgia, Jun 2023 - 1 week 6 days)
Cony was a great house sitter! He took very good care of our dog, fish, and chickens, as well as all of our plants. The house was in perfect condition when we returned. I would recommend him and welcome him back anytime!
 
SCOTT AND SUSAN ( South Carolina, Apr 2023 - 2 weeks 2 days)
We had Cony house sit for us for 2 months ending 4/18/23. He took care of our 4 cats and our large Golden Retriever/Pyrenees dog Buddy. Cony got along very well with our pets and made sure that they were well taken care of and had everything they need. He gave Buddy lots of walks and Buddy got very attached to him. Cony also took care of our home and property, plus helped out with our vacation rental next door. He is good at following directions and detail oriented. He even fixed things that ... MORE
 
JOYCE ( North Carolina, Feb 2023 - 2 months)
Cony was a wonderful, experienced sitter. He was prompt and responsive, but most of all took great care of our two beloved family dogs. He updated us with fun pictures and we felt comfortable knowing he could handle any emergencies. We returned to an immaculate home and two very happy furry friends.
 
ALLISON ( Florida, Nov 2022 - 1 week 2 days)
Cony sat for our cats and did a great job. He kept in contact and even sent photos. The house was in good order when we returned. We would have him sit for us again.
 
BARBARA ( Florida, Sep 2020 - 10 days)
No rating Cony was indeed a good fit. Although we had to cut our trip very short, beyond our control, Cony was very adaptable and kept our place and animals well. We do recommend Cony.
JAMES & MARGARET ( Florida, Mar 2020)
No rating Cony was excellent, I could not be happier. He stayed in my cabin and took care of my dogs for two months. It is always stressful to imagine what could await you when you return. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find a well kept home and happy dogs. I highly recommend him.
JENNIFER ( North Carolina, Jan 2020)
No rating Cony was wonderful. We talked several times, he kept us up to date on the dogs and chickens. Watered my greenhouse and turned on the heater when it was dropping below freezing. When we got back the dogs really seem to like him and the chickens were out free ranging. House was neat and clean. We are using him again in March.
LAURA ( Georgia, Dec 2019)
No rating Cony was an excellent sitter! Our dogs warmed up to him quickly and he was very good with them. He let them out often and took them on walks. Cony also did a great job housesitting. He kept the place clean and orderly and tested the pool water for me. He was responsive with communication and kept us informed while we were away. Overall it was a pleasure to have him sit for us.
ERIC ( Florida, Nov 2019)
No rating Cony sat for me for 5 days week-Nov 14-18th and did an excellent job taking care of my 2 dogs and 1 cat. He took the dogs out 2/day for a long walk on the nature trails as well as washed their feet off after each walk, and fed them and the cat each day. He also seemed to be very comfortable with all the affection and attention they required. I appreciated how he brought to my attention an issue pertaining to the cat litter box that has been very helpful to me. Cony also took in my mail, ... MORE
SUSAN ( Florida, Nov 2019)
No rating Cony was really great with Gracie who bonded with him instantly. He took great care of the house and went above and beyond and even fixed little issues in the house. Would definitely have him back to sit for me and highly recommend him. Thanks, Cony
LISA ( Florida, Oct 2019)
No rating Cony was great--we came home to a very happy cat. Communications were good and commitments kept! Thanks Cony!
LAURIE ( Florida, Sep 2019)
No rating My husband and I were very satisfied with Cony as a pet sitter and a house sitter. He took excellent care of our two Australian Shepherds and our cat. He sent me pictures and updates several times to keep me posted on their care. He also fed and watered our two steers. The house was in great shape when we got home. I liked him so much I have asked him to sit for us again in October.
MARTHA ( Florida, Sep 2019)
No rating Cony is the best. Very engaged, friendly and patient with my dogs. He went above and beyond during the entire sit. Kept us informed of daily happenings via text. Walked the dogs several times a day, engaged in conversation with neighbors and kept the house neat and clean. He even washed the sheets and towels that he used! I'm pretty sure the dogs wanted to leave with him. Thank you, Cony. You did a great job!
LINDA (Jacksonville Florida, Sep 2019)
No rating Cony could not have been nicer and at no point did we feel we had to worry about our little zoo. Cony arrived a day earlier and got familiar with our routine, the dogs immediately took a shine to him and even our indoor cat, Indy, became friends, which is very rare and that in itself is the best endorsement one can give. Throughout our travels Cony stayed in touch as needed and we had a great time not having to worry about the pets knowing they were in the best of care. We sincerely hope ... MORE
MARTIN ( Florida, Jun 2019)
No rating We were very grateful to have found Cony among the folks who offered to sit for us on our trip to grandson's graduation. He kept our kitties in good humor. When we returned home, we had a minimum of cold-shouldered attitude. They did very well in our absence. Cony kept the house neat and tidy for our return. He washed his sheets and towels and returned the guest room to its original condition or better than he found it. Thank you Cony.
DEBORAH ( Florida, May 2019)
No rating Cony's communication while I was away was greatly appreciated. In addition to handling all the requests of the sit, he was very capable of handling a "water leak" situation that had occurred. He let me know that he appreciated my home and the opportunity. Most importantly, the dogs were well cared for. I am grateful for all that Cony managed in my absence. I am happy to expand on further details (all positive) should you wish to contact me. Thank you Cony!
JUDITH ( Florida, Mar 2019 - 4 weeks)
No rating Cony arrived a day and a half before our departure to become accustomed to the dogs and there routine. Both goldens were comfortable with him right away. He communicated with use several times as to how the dogs were doing when we were gone. After arriving home the house was neet and in order. I will definitely use Cony again. Bob B Mountain City, TN
ROBERT (MOUNTAIN CITY Tennessee, Feb 2019 - 1 week 2 day)
No rating We had Cony watch our home and 2 kitties. He kept in touch, and the place was clean when we returned. The cats had food and clean water, and they said he did a fine job! We would certainly have Cony sit for us again.
CLARK ( North Carolina, Feb 2019 - 4 weeks)
No rating Communications with Cony were excellent; before, during, and even after the "sit". We have a 19 year old cat who needs his meds twice a day. Cony took care of elderly Sherlock and our 2 dogs and 1 more cat. All were healthy, and happy when we returned home after 3 1/2 weeks away. By happy I mean they just seemed completely normal with no signs of any stress caused by our absence. Moreover the home was tidy and well kept by Cony during his stay here. We'd recommend him to anyone who needs ... MORE
ROBERT ( Pennsylvania, Dec 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating Cony stayed with our 3 pets at our home for a little over 8 weeks. The animals responded to him immediately, especially our dog and downstairs kitty cat. The upstairs kitty cat took a while, but she eventually gave in and "kissed" him - after that, they were friends. Cony is a very resourceful man - he fashioned a squirrel "baffle" for our bird feeder which has until this day has thankfully kept the squirrels out of the bird seed. He also modified our cat litter scoopers, which makes them ... MORE
J & W - NEPA ( Pennsylvania, Oct 2018 - 2 months)
No rating We had Cony stay at our house while we were away for almost 3 weeks. He took care of our dog, cat and house magnificently. He arrived when he said he would and even agreed to take us to the airport in a city he was unfamiliar with. In talking to him before the sit and during I just had a feeling my pets were in good, loving hands. He sent us pictures and texts while we were gone just to let us know how things were going. He cleaned before we came home and even sorted our mail, a job I never ... MORE
WENDY ( Virginia, Sep 2018 - 2 weeks 4 days)
No rating Cony went out of his way to help not only our cats, but even a wasp problem! He was very kind and communicative. Our cats (and us) would welcome him back any time.
HEATHER ( North Carolina, Aug 2018 - 4 days)
No rating Cony house sat for us in June and July of 2018. We asked that he take care of the lawn and the pets while we were away. He kept us informed of any relevant events, such as one of the dogs chewed up his dog bed, so we ordered a new one. Part of our lawn had been re-seeded just prior to going away so it needed extra attention. Cony sent us pictures of the dogs and they looked very happy. When we returned, the house, lawn and dogs were in great shape. We would recommend him as a good house ... MORE
OONAGH ( Georgia, Jun 2018 - 1 month 3 weeks)
No rating Just wanted to post a quick shout out to Cony for keeping our little Lucy cat company while we visited friends on the West Coast. She took to him quickly, which is unusual as she is very shy. House was left in tip top shape, too. Thanks Cony!
JACK ( Delaware, Apr 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Cony stayed at my house Dec. 6 to April 25, 2018. Originally I had planned for my vacation to end earlier, but plans changed. Cony was flexible with the dates, and was able to extend his stay. He initiated repairing a sink problem, unclogging one drain and replacing a pipe under kitchen sin, .and took measures to keep the house pipes from freezing. Cony pruned the bushes and trees, cut the grass as needed. My 2 cats seemed well fed when I returned. Cony communicated well with me on phone ... MORE
SARA ( Virginia, Dec 2017 - 4 months)
No rating Cony was wonderful with our 3 dogs. We have 3 older rescue dogs — a blind dog, a deaf dog and an energetic dog. He spent most of his time at our house — playing with them and giving them lots of attention. Thank you, Cony.
TOM AND CYNTHIA ( North Carolina, Nov 2017 - 1 week 4 days)
No rating Cony is a very nice & responsible house-sitter. He cleaned up after himself and took great care of our pets. Thanks Cony!
CARRIE ( North Carolina, Oct 2016 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating Cony was a very reliable sitter. The house and the cats were in perfect condition when we returned home. There was a problem in the kitchen and Cony took care of it quickly. I would definitely recommend Cony and would ask him to sit for us again.
LINDA ( Maryland, Sep 2016 - 2 weeks)
No rating Cony is a calm and peaceful man, who seemed to fit right in to our home. I could tell from the first moments that he would be very attentive to the pets- and they could tell as well. He was very careful to understand any of their needs and other needs for the property. He even called us to let us know how things were going. We would be happy to have him stay here any time.
LESLIE (Del Rio Tennessee, Sep 2016 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating Cony took care of our home, lawn and three cats for three weeks, including giving medicine to one cat 3 times a week. The house was tidy and the cats healthy and happy when we got home. Cony is a nice person; we would have him sit again.
DAWN (Malabar Florida, Aug 2016 - 3 weeks)
No rating The house was in great shape upon on our return. No issues at all. My neighbors said they saw Cony walking the dogs frequently. Thanks Cony!
AMY ( North Carolina, Jul 2016 - 1 week 6 days)
No rating Cony did an excellent job looking after our farm, cats, and large flock of chickens. He went out of his way to make sure the chickens were safe from predators, which were numerous and emboldened by the absence of our guard dog. Everything was in order when we returned and I have no doubt Cony treated our little homestead as if it were his own. Thanks again!
