Experienced and enthusiastic petsitter ready to chat now! * solid references and National Criminal History Check * young and active, yet mature-minded * single, non-smoker * respectful, responsible and communicative * clean and tidy minimalist * vegetarian - true animal lover
ABOUT ME: Hi there! I'm a 31-year-old, adventure-loving, young female with an old soul, who likes to keep fit via running - and am always looking for furry little companions to join me!
I've also been known to dabble in a bit of trail running, rock climbing, bouldering, mountain hiking and yoga. I may like to get out and about but, since childhood, I've truly known nothing better than relaxing with a good book.
I grew up immersed in the ocean (literally, I lived on a boat) as well as in the Australian bush, where I built an appreciation for wildlife from a very young age. I really do love all animals, so much so that I don't even eat them; I'm a vegetarian ;)
I primarily work and study from home and, with this chosen lifestyle, I am a minimalist and like to see myself as clean, tidy and--most importantly--respectful and responsible.
WHY I WANT TO HOUSE SIT: I'm a nature and animal-lover at heart, but also relish the culture and foodie finds that come with city life. I've rented all sorts of dwellings around Brisbane for over a decade, but am now looking to explore new avenues through further housesitting.
I'm especially looking to use these opportunities to "carpe diem" and capture content through my travel photography and writing - and, of course, to make new animal and human friends along the way!
MY EXPERIENCE: I've had the pleasure of caring for and enjoying the company of a variety of furry friends during past housesits, including dogs--large and small, young and old--as well as multiple cats (even three at once!).
I have particular experience with large breed dogs (they're really just gentle giants!), active dogs (8km joy runs included), as well as older dogs which may require regular medication and that little bit more patience and a gentle touch.
I'd absolutely love to meet you and your fur babies, so please, let's sit down and have a cuppa and a chat!
As a first time user of Aussie House Sitters, I was very apprehensive of using this service. We had booked a holiday, but our circumstances had changed with a 14 week old puppy. Jade was completely professional, and set my mind at ease with regular photos and updates. Jade was professional, courteous and punctual. Our house was kept in exactly the same way we left it. Both of our dogs, including the puppy, were very sad to see her go. When the puppy caused a few issues, Jade showed ...

Would highly recommend Jade for anyone. Will definitely be using Jade again.

This is the first time we had used Aussie House Sitters and we were naturally nervous, we needn't have been, Jade looked after our two dogs and home as we would. We came back from a three week trip to two happy healthy dogs, flourishing potted plants and an immaculate house. We're hoping Jade will be available to sit for our future trips.

Jade took great care of our home and dog Lexi during her stay. She was easy to communicate and reliable ensuring that we felt completely comfortable leaving our home and dog in her capable hands whilst we were away. I would not hesitate to use Jade for future house sits.
ALISSA (Gordon Park QLD, Jan 2020 - 5 nights)
Jade was fantastic would definitely recommend her. She sent photos all the time of the dogs and a video. She replied quickly to my original questions and was just delightful to deal with from the word go. Came back to a spotless house, cleaner than when we left! I shall definitely try and book her again. Many thanks Jade. Best wishes Lloyd
