Hello, my name is Colton Gutfriend and I’d be happy to speak with you about house sitting in your home.
There are many reasons you may want a reliable person to look after your home while you are away for an extended absence.
For most homeowners the foremost reason is the security of having their home looked lived in to discourage break-in or burglary. Since I operate as a “live in” housesitter (i.e. not someone who only drops in once a day to pick up your mail and maybe feed a pet) your home will not only look “lived in” but will be lived in day and night.
I have my own business as a web designer and can do my work (on my laptop) from any home with a high speed internet connection. That means most days your home will be occupied all day long (and most evenings, since my business keeps me busy.)
I prefer house sitting assignments of a week or longer. I give preference to sit homes in Beaverly to Hart Highway through Salmon Valley: anywhere near Spruceland. Another area of preference is College Heights (because that’s where many of my web design clients are located and I do business there frequently.)
However, I am happy to sit homes anywhere throughout the Prince George Area, particularly when I might have an open month to fill in. I offer discounts from my affordable house sitting fees for assignments of extended length and/or in preferred areas.
Please browse around my site (housesittingpg.com) to get further questions answered, then call me on my cell at 250-614-3863 to discuss my house sitting services..
I now do offer Stop-Bys for house sitting. A lot of calls have been uncomfortable with a stranger living in their house, and after the reassurance of me being a reliable criminal-free person, they still feel more comfortable with stop-bys. I can offer this now as well.
"The care and attention that Colton put into taking care of our home and especially our two dogs, 2 cats, lizard and other farm animals (quite a handful) was absolutely exceptional!
We have 2 fussy dogs and more farm animals than I am willing to count, but Colton never batted an eyelid to step in and care for everything while we are away
Small jobs were completed (trust me I checked) and our creatures were treated like kings and queens.
Don’t think twice about using Colton as a house sitter—–he IS the best.”

"I am writing on behalf of Colton Gutfriend of “Housesitting PG”. I recently had Colton housesit/petsit for me and found him incredibly reliable and responsible.
I particularly appreciated his attention to detail to the habits and routine of my animals. Colton is very keen and dedicated to doing a great job.
Colton has a great personality for pet sitting, as he is a “Gentle Soul”, and all my animals loved him!!"
Brenda, Prince George
"My family left for four days and needed an experience dog sitter. My dog has high anxiety and when I leave her, she will destroy my house if left alone and I can’t take her to a kennel for the same reason, she will always find a way to get to me.
Colton we found to be very honest and trustworthy. He went out of his way to meet us and the dogs prior to us leaving, and go over everything that needed to be done with them and our home.
He is very polite and sincere and would highly recommend his services to any one. My house was just how I left it and my dogs were taken care of.
I know we will definitely use his services again on our next vacation."
Janelle, Prince George
"Colton took great care of our home, 3 dogs, cat and 2 donkeys while we were away on vacation this summer.
That is no small task considering one of our dogs is elderly and frail and one of them does not like change or strange people.
He persevered and finally won her over after a week of her snarling at him.
I appreciated him staying in touch with me so I wasn’t worrying about how things were going at home.
I would absolutely employ him again to look after our home and animals."

"Our thanks to Colton for the great job he did house-sitting and looking after our dog while we were away.
He was able to connect with our dog who tends to get very sad when we are gone and Colton provided companionship and reassurance when needed.
Our house was safe and secure in our absence and it was very reassuring to know that someone responsible and competent was looking after our home front.
We would be happy to recommend his services to others."
