Animal loving psychologists!

50, Project officer

64, Retired academic

My name is Sue. My husband Eric and I have recently moved to Hobart. We both have a psychology degree and I have a particular interest in animals. I previously lectured Animal Cognition at James Cook University in Cairns.

We're both very fit and active. We take long walks every day and very much enjoy walking with dogs and interacting with cats (if they want to of course HA!) We are without pets for the first time in a long time. We miss living with animals, and for all these reasons, house and pet sitting would suit us perfectly. Eric is retired and we have ample time to devote to any animals in our care. Eric is excellent with plants too!

If we sound suitable to care for your house and/or pets, please get in touch.

No rating Sue and Erik you absolute legends. Thank you so much for looking after our house, dog and 14 chickens while we were away. When we returned home our dog Cadbury was relaxed, happy and playfull, the chicks were double their size, healthy and strong, the garden had grown and there were 2 beers and a pre-made lasagna in the fridge! We were so comfortable knowing you were looking after our home while we were away and we would ask you back in a heart beat should we plan another trip away. ... MORE

No rating Sue and Eric did a great job looking after our dog Holly and the house and a large garden for the whole of winter 2017. Holly was happy when we got home but she occasionally sits at the door gazing towards the gate--- I think she's looking for them to come back again. Sue left some delicious soup for our dinner and the fridge was stocked with eggs milk bread and butter. We would be happy to have them house sit for us again. THANKYOU Sue and Eric

No rating Sue and Eric are reliable, clean and we could not recommend them highly enough. They took such good care of our house and dog. Eric is an excellent cook and after they left, we kept finding treats in the fridge, sauces, minestrone soup and even a bolognaise meal in the freezer! We would have no hesitation in inviting them again. Highly recommended.

No rating We'd like to thank you Sue and Eric for doing a wonderful job looking after our home, it was lovely, clean and fresh when we walked in the door. Our little animal babies were relaxed and carefree so we know you looked after them well. Glad you felt at home and enjoyed your stay. Once again without you being there we wouldn't have felt at easy being away. Colin and Tess

No rating Sue and Eric were fantastic house sitters. We felt totally confident while we were away. Not only did they email regularly with updates of Roxy and Tilly, but we came home to find a beautifully clean house and happy animals. I think Roxy actually missed them when we returned. Sue had even made a lasagne for our return home! I would highly recommend this lovely couple to look after your house and pets.
