Well Trained Humans Who’ll Sit, Walk and Stay

We’re a small hand-picked team of responsible, caring and experienced people who are genuinely passionate about the dogs we work with.

About us

Hi, I’m Christiana Hines, founder and owner of Hampstead Housesitters and Hampstead Hounds. I am both a home and pet owner, plus I had a demanding job in the media, so I know exactly how it feels to have a full-on schedule!

When you are at work, away for the weekend or jetting off overseas, the last thing you want it to be worrying about the security of your home or the wellbeing of your pets.  We totally understand and our whole ethos is to give you complete peace of mind – you can be confident your prized possessions and your beloved pets are safe and cared for.

I also appreciate that every client, property, household and pet is different.  We therefore offer a truly bespoke and personalised house sitting or dog walking service that is tailored to the individual needs of you and your pets.

Originally I covered all the house sitting and dog walking myself but as the business has grown I’ve hand-picked a small team of responsible, caring and reliable people with ample experience to look after your home and care for your animals.

The business is fully insured and all members of the team are CRB/DBS checked.

We have established an excellent reputation within the area.  We can provide plentiful references from happy clients who can testify that we are professional, reliable and trustworthy people who have been fully house and pet trained!



I am a huge animal lover and was surrounded with cats and dogs growing up in Australia. During my career in the Travel Industry I volunteered for The Dogs Trust and realized I wanted to work with animals full time as I find it incredibly rewarding. There’s something special about the bond that you make with animals and I love keeping them happy and healthy.

I take pride in looking after client’s pets and homes as if they are my own. It is always really satisfying when they say that all their nerves and concerns have been allayed, knowing that their pets and homes are well cared for.


I have been working as a House and Pet Sitter for several years now, regularly looking after animals in their homes when their owners go away. The oldest cat I have looked after was 21 years old, which required the special patience, care, attention and love I believe I can give.

I love looking after all animals, engaging them in all sorts of games to keep them occupied and ensuring that they sleep well. I try to help them maintain or get into a routine wherever possible.

All animals have their own individual personalities, and I am able to get to know them, their likes and dislikes and work with them accordingly.


My name is Angelique and I love the company of all different animals. I grew up on a farm in Holland with many dogs and other types of animals to regularly take care of and look after.

I take great pride in my work, making sure that I get to know the animals we care for very well and that I understand each of their individual needs. Each home that I stay in is treated with the respect and attention that it deserves and I really enjoy the work that we all do together as a team.


House Sitting

We can collect the post, water the plants, and turn the heating on, if required. In the unlikely event that there’s an issue with something we’re there to take care of it.

House Sitting with pets

The same as house sitting, but taking care of your pets as well. We can stay for as many hours each day as you would like – you decide. The service covers both cats and dogs.

Pet Care

Caring for cats and dogs, including Post Operative Pet Care or Emergency Vet Visits, or you might have a new kitten that you want us to keep occupied and amused.

Dog Walking

Have a busy schedule that makes it hard to give your four legged friend the love and attention they deserve? Our regular dog walking service is the perfect answer.
