Read on to find out more about the America Love Pets data, and how TrustedHousesitters used social media to find out favorite pets, state by state. And we’re talking more than cats and dogs! This thorough data opens the world up even more.

It’s just about summer vacation for us, while some of you have been out of school and/or work for weeks now! Probably you have settled into a rhythm of summer life. Perhaps you’re planning road trips and vacations? Every year, we go on at least two vacations. In the winter, we go to Florida. In the summer, we go to Cape Cod. Last year we threw off normal routine and the two of us went to Alaska! We were happy we had care for our kids, and that we found sitters for both of our pets.

That peace of mind in knowing that your pets are in good hands while you travel is PRICELESS.
This year, life is ever more complicated. We have one dog, one cat, and 11 chickens! We used to be more able to take off at a moment’s notice. There are some places we can take our dog, and some places we can’t. We never want to displace our cat, though. And 11 chickens?! That’s why I’m so impressed with TrustedHousesitters. You can filter your pet sitter searches, and yes, you can find people who will help with your chickens! This is earth shattering news! This means more travel for us.

So, what exactly is TrustedHousesitters?
It’s a way you can find your ideal pet sitter/house sit from a pet loving community. These sitters will love your pets/home like their own completely for free. Or maybe you want to be the one to pet/home sit? It’s mutually beneficial. Vets say most pets are happier at home when owners are away, rather than adapting to a new environment. These registered pet-sitters are care-oriented rather than pay-oriented. They’ll travel to care for your home and pets, in exchange for a free retreat. Trust and safety is a priority, so there’s a 3 step verification process, including global identity with I.D. document cross-checks and criminal background checks. You can view profiles of registered sitters with ID verifications and video profiles!

Caring people happy to sit for FREE in exchange for a retreat, while YOU’RE on one too? Win-win.

Or perhaps you’re looking to house sit and care for someone else’s pet? Whatever your Cary pet sitting needs or wherever you live, look to the site for that option too!
At this world’s largest house and pet sitting network, they love ALL pets. So much, in fact, that they set out to scrutinize 12 months worth of online conversation specifically mentioning pets. They used the social listening tool – Meltwater – and looked at Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, to discover which pets are most loved by YOU! They broke that data down further into pet breeds to find out what the most popular ones are by state. The results are fascinating! You can check it out yourself. Simply click here to go to their America Loves Pets map to find the top pets in your state. I looked at all states!

TrustedHousesitters launched in 2010, following a global need for new pet care solutions. The USA launch is particularly exciting to me, because the network keeps growing. Trusted Housesitters gives new opportunities for worldwide travel – helping thousands of people all over the world. This is a new way to travel and a new way to connect – combined by a love of animals. So check out the America Love Pets data, and check our your pet care/home sitting options.

You may find that your entire world will open up!

  1. So you learn something new everyday and apparently in NY the favorite dog is the Bulldog. Who knew! Seriously that was so much fun and will keep this service in mind if we are in need. As of right now, Kevin’s parents are watching Elsa for us when we go to Disney. But if that changes this is definitely a great resource to keep in mind. Thanks!! 🙂

    1. I was thinking the same thing! Trusted pet sitting is always an important issue for us when planning a vacation. I am glad to know about this!

  2. I have never heard of this before. I have a dog, 3 geckos, and 2 guinea pigs, and I end up with 3 different people watching the different species! The site says Bengal cats are the favorite here, but we barely see any at the vet I work at so I don’t know if I trust that 😉

  3. I usually have my neighbor look in on my pets whenever we travel together as a family, or usually someone is home, but this is good to know if I do need someone to watch them. Never heard of Trusted House Sitters before so will be checking them out.
