110% committed to your animals and home :)

55, Experienced and reliable animal lover :)

Hi there pet/home owners! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

I am a mature (55), responsible woman who has been pet/home sitting on a full-time basis for just over two years now. What began as an experimental adventure has evolved into a passion and a way of life that I thoroughly enjoy. I approach my pet/home sitting with the same professionalism that I always employed throughout my (paid) working life and the rewards are immense. I have had the privilege of spending time/forming relationships with so many precious animals and this has created some treasured memories for me. I've travelled to places that I would never have otherwise seen and I have met some truly wonderful pet/home owners.
At the foot of my profile you can browse reviews that have been very kindly left for me by some of these people, those who engaged my services via this website. (I do have more reviews from further clients that have been left on another platform that I use).

I am an excellent housekeeper, but my true love is the animals. I know this because, when travelling to every sit, whether it's a return sit to animals who I already know, or a first-time sit, I feel so excited to see/meet them! I have been surrounded by animals for my entire life and I really can't imagine life without them. I feel that I have a great natural affinity with animals.. hopefully the feeling's mutual!

On a personal level, I am very friendly, reliable, ethical, practical, capable, honest and extremely compassionate. I value privacy and will respect yours. I do not ever invite friends/family into your home, ever. While it is not a paid pastime, I see my pet/home sitting as a 'job' and I conduct myself accordingly. I pass no judgement re how others choose to live their lives.. if their animals are well-loved and cared for, that's good enough for me.

I am very much a homebody and I work on a casual basis (online) from home, so I am a constant presence at your property for security purposes. This also means that I am a full-time reassuring friend for your animal family - providing them with all of the care, company and attention that they deserve. I am contactable 24/7 and I love to forward regular photos/videos for your peace of mind. All instructions given re routines, security, household, garden and animal care are followed to the letter.
I am acutely aware of what an exercise in trust it is to leave that which is closest to most people's hearts, their animals and their home, in the care of a stranger.

ANIMALS:
I have always had dogs, cats and while my three, (now adult), children were growing up, of course we had the usual parade of chooks, ducks, guinea pigs, mice, rabbits, birds, horses, donkeys and fish.. pet rats even! I have had my own horses from a young age, with the odd break here and there when life (children!) got in the way. I dabbled in Dressage, had a bit of a foray into Racing and tailed off in later years with some Western Riding. In my youth I did work on cattle/sheep properties, but having been given two orphaned lambs to raise in recent years, I have also discovered what a joy that they too can be as pets! I'm confident and happy to care for pretty much any combination of animal friends I think :)

HOME:
My own home-owning history extends for roughly 25 years. I have always taken great pride and pleasure in caring for and improving my homes to the greatest extent that I can. I possess great attention to detail and am exceptionally conscientious in carrying out the care of client's homes. I love watering and tending to plants and gardens. Your home and surrounds will be treated with great care and respect.

POPPY THE PET SITTER:
Currently, I come with a little bonus... I have little Poppy with me, who is our last remaining family pet. I know that it's not ideal to have a pet in tow as a pet/home sitter, as it does limit my options, but I have a responsibility to this little girl to continue to care for her until such time as she leaves us. Poppy is *sort of* a dog, (a Chihuahua x Shih Tzu), although I don't believe that she thinks she's a dog at all! Pop is eight years old and has always lived with other animals of all varieties, shapes and sizes. She has never been anything other than gentle, friendly and accommodating to all. She is 100% 'cat friendly' and, in fact, gives them a very wide berth haha! Pop is completely house-trained, de-sexed and kept up to date with all of her vaccinations and worming. I carry her medical records with us should anyone need reassurance. Pop is shy at first with other dogs, but soon warms up once she gets to know them. She is fine with large dogs and young, playful dogs. In fact, she's been a great mentor for some of our younger doggo clients. She has also been a considerate and gentle companion for some of our senior clients :) I have included a photo of Poppy in my photos here on my profile for your reference. She is the little white munchkin that I am holding in the last photo.

SOCIALS:
I have recently created a Facebook page for our sitting, as I thought it'd be a nice way to keep a record all of the beautiful animals that we meet during our travels. Visiting our page is also a fabulous way in which potential clients can gain an even greater 'feel' for who Poppy and I are. I have compiled an album of our reviews within the 'Photos' section of our Facebook page and there are hundreds of general photos on the page now of our general sitting work.
Please see below also for our Instagram address :)

I hope that I have managed to paint a thorough picture of Poppy and myself, but please do feel free to contact me with any queries whatsoever that may spring to mind.

Best wishes,
Bec & Poppy dog.


***NOTES***

RE DOGS/CATS:
- If your dogs/cats are accustomed to sleeping on the bed with you, that's no problem. The more, the merrier! :)
- I travel in my Hyundai Santa Fe SUV Wagon and am happy to chauffeur doggos to their usual outings, (should they have any), to the beach, dog park etc.

LIMITATIONS:
- I do not pet/home sit while there is any other individual sleeping in the home.
- We are not able to look after dogs that have aggressive tendencies.

RE SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS:
I supply all of my own bed linen, pillow and doona, there's no need to make up a bed for me. I can do that when I arrive. (Poppy brings her own bed too).

WHAT DO I NEED?
Nothing :) I provide my own food, groceries and all other supplies. I consume nothing from the home.

* Only because I have been asked before - no, no fee.

"Bec and Pop looked after our home, Dog, Bird and Fish from 20/08/20 till 03/09/20. This is the third time we have used her services and have already booked her in for a another housesit visit. The pets certainly enjoyed the company and attention of Bec. From the start Bec was very easy to talk to and understood our requirements. She did an excellent job and we were very happy with everything she did. Especially all the updates from her with photos and videos. Dora our dog certainly enjoyed ... MORE

Bec and Pop were fantastic. Regular updates meaning we enjoyed our break without worrying. Even managed to sway our cranky cat.
 
PENNY (Emerald QLD, Jul 2020 - 2.5 weeks)
First time using a house sitter and I sweated blood studying all the sitter profiles before I found Rebecca's. As soon as I read it I knew she'd be the right choice for us and our two energetic Labs. It was thorough, honest, relevant and addressed many of my questions up front. Trouble is she's very popular and obviously much cherished by her past & repeat clients. Nonetheless I shot her a message and crossed my fingers. Long story short, the stars aligned and after a couple of phone chats and ... MORE
 
DAVID (South West Rocks NSW, Mar 2020 - 2 weeks)
Wow what a great sitter. I came home to a spotless house and well cared for animals. Bec sent photos through daily of the animals which my partner and i really enjoyed. I am actually going to frame some of them. I felt at ease leaving my house, belongings and animals all in Bec's care. I would definitely book Bec again and recommend her highly.
 
TANYA (Larnook NSW, Mar 2020 - 1 week)
Rebecca was an absolute pleasure to have as a house sitter! She was cordial, polite, friendly, fantastic communication from beginning to end, updating us frequently to assure us that our precious dogs (and our home) were safe. They had such a ball with Poppy, I don't think they missed us at all! I would definitely have Bec and Poppy back to house sit in a heartbeat!
 
CHARMAINE (Leycester NSW, Mar 2020 - 5 days)
Bec and Pop returned to look after Ludo and our house. I wish I'd got a video of the moment Ludo realised who was coming up the drive....she was beside herself with excitement! Definitely confirmed that Ludo would be perfectly happy while we were away. The house was looked after just as well as Ludo was and we were even lucky enough to spend some time with Bec and Pop when we got back from our trip. So pleased we found these two...would happily have them both back again and because of their ... MORE
 
HAYLEY (Narangba QLD, Feb 2020 - 2 weeks - 1 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
We were fortunate enough to have Bec and Pop house sit and look after our 2 Standard Poodles and 2 Cockatoo's for 4 weeks while we were away on holidays. Bec did an amazing job of looking after our pets and home, we loved the updates and pictures while we were away. It was comforting to know all was ok at home so we could enjoy a worry free holiday, when we got back everything was exactly as it was before we left. Thank you so much Bec and Pop, we hope we can have you stay next time we ... MORE
 
KAREN (Pullenvale QLD, Dec 2019 - 4 weeks)
Bec was a pleasure to meet and also have sit our house. Her communication was fantastic and her attention to our pets was loving and attentive. Bec also watered our many plants and attended to the daily chores around the house. We would have no hesitation is using Bec again if the need arouse.
 
NORMAN (MARYBOROUGH QLD, Nov 2019 - 3 days)
Bec and Pop housesat for us. I knew from our first communication that they would be the perfect match for us. We had an elderly dog and Bec was happy to take on the sit knowing our little dog may not make it to the end of the sit. Our dog did pass away. Bec managed this situation with compassion. Bec looked after our home so well and communicated with us on a regular basis and updated us. We couldn't recommend Bec highly enough.
 
GLENYS (Maryborough QLD, Sep 2019 - 4 weeks)
Bec and Pop looked after our home for the 2nd time from 17/9/19 till 25/9/19, Once again we were very happy with everything Bec did. This time our dog travelled with us. On the previous housesit she looked after our Dog, Bird and Fish from 27/5/19 till 6/6/19. The pets certainly enjoyed the company and attention of Bec. From the start Bec was very easy to talk to and understood our requirements. She did an excellent job and we were very happy with everything she did. Especially all the updates ... MORE

MARTINA (Townsville QLD, Aug 2019 - 20 days)
Hi Bec, Thanks for taking care of our home and dogs, great sit. Regular updates appreciated Cheers Kate
 
KATE (Craignish QLD, Apr 2019 - 1 month)
Bec was a wonderful house sitter who looked after our two dogs with considerable care and gave them lots of attention. The house was spotless and plants watered as requested. Bec sent us regular photos and updates during the house sit. We highly recommend Bec and her own little dog Pop if you are looking for a reliable, caring person to look after your home and animals.
 
JENNY & TREVOR (Warwick QLD, Apr 2019 - 2 weeks 4 days)
Bec and Poppy looked after our Kelpie girl Ludo for 3 weeks and we were so glad they did. Bec's communication and almost daily pictures and videos put our minds at ease about leaving our girl. Both Bec and Poppy have lovely natures and you can tell they both have lots of experience and really understand of dogs. We'd happily have them back again for another sit. Thanks so much!
 
HAYLEY (Narangba QLD, Mar 2019 - 3 weeks - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
Thank you so much for looking after my house and my animals while I was away. Thank you for the photos and regular updates. They were much appreciated! Hope to see you again sometime. ❤️
 
LISA (Mitchelton QLD, Mar 2019 - 3 days)
We have a large property where we run our horse industry based business from so this coupled with my 'control-freak' tendencies makes it VERY rare for us to ever leave for a weekend let alone an overseas holiday but after a not so great couple of years I bit the bullet and booked a trip. HOLY COW - now what.!!! I was panicked so three months ahead of time I start looking for a house sitter - enter Bec & Pop. After a few phone calls and emails back and forth I was comfortable enough to book them ... MORE
 
SHARYN (Beaudesert QLD, Feb 2019 - 3 weeks)
Bec is amazing and I HIGHLY recommend her. Our animals were cared for above and beyond and we were well informed about how they were going. Bec is a very capable woman who wasn't fazed by our houses "quirks". I am sure our labrador missed her when we got home and I would love to have her sit again for us!! Huge thanks to Bec and Pop!!! I would give her more stars if I could
 
ANGELA (Tatong VIC, Dec 2018 - 2 weeks)
Thanks Bec and Pop (Dog). First up, you made us feel very comfortable, with leaving the house and our variety of sometimes spoilt animals in your very capable hands. We were first times at this and a tad nerves. We returned home and every thing was in perfect order and you went out of your way in every aspect, including making every animal even more spoilt than they already are, then sending us daily photos, videos and reports of them having a good time. Bec was challenged with a rider mowing ... MORE
 
BRUCE (Cohuna VIC, Dec 2018 - 2 weeks)
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bec and poppy as house sitters. They bonded instantly with our ruby who remained happy and healthy in their care. Ruby particularly loved playing with little poppy and Bec kept us well informed with photos and videos of the two while we were away. Bec kept a careful eye on our property, reporting a couple of downed sheep to our local farmer and the house was kept spotless and tidy. We hope Bec and poppy will be available to return when we are next away.
 
JILL (euroa VIC, Oct 2018 - 3 weeks)
Bec and Poppy made a great team and they did an outstanding job with our 5 Golden Retrievers and our beautiful property. Rebecca was always communicating about the general well being of all and asking questions. As I was travelling at the time, my Husband introduced Bec and Poppy to the crew at Camperdown. Rebecca was prompt, good natured, down to earth, thorough and warm when my husband engaged wit her. Bec was no different in person. At no time was there any hesitation on both sides to ... MORE
 
LOUISE (Camperdown VIC, Aug 2018 - 1 week 5 days)

With a house sitter looking after your pets, house and garden - you can really relax. Happy days.
