Perhaps hardest of all is finding someone to look after your beloved pet when you go away.
And let's face it, living abroad often means frequent travel -- whether to exciting destinations nearby or back home to visit friends and family.
Plus, finding care for your dog, cat, or guinea pig while you're away can be complicated and expensive. And you want to find someone you can trust.
One simple solution is TrustedHousesitters, which gives pet owners peace of mind when they go on holiday by finding pet sitters to look after their home and pets for free.
In exchange, sitters get to stay somewhere new and interesting. It means pets stay happy at home and their owners can sleep more soundly knowing their furry friends are in safe hands.
