So, Im headed to the beach next month. I have 2 dogs and I usually have my in-laws care for them but this year, they are going with us. The in-laws. Not the dogs. My wife is a nurse and her tech volunteered to house sit for us if we want. Watch the house and take care of the dogs etc. This is pretty tempting because we got burglarized about 2 years ago, so someone being there may be nice. He is in his mid 20s and lives with his mom. Seems like a nice guys and she says he is pretty responsible. Anywhoo, 2 questions. Anyone have god/bad experiences with house sitters/sitting? I'm assuming I pay this guy? How much? I thought it may be a good idea to stock the fridge/pantry and maybe leave a credit card for unexpected expenses.
