Care for pets


As a pet lover I enjoy looking after dogs and cats having had my own. Importantly It is my endeavour to provide owners with peace of mind that their pets and home are been well cared for whilst they are away. In addition I enjoy maintaining gardens.

In 2018 I returned to Melbourne from Queensland to work in freight forwarding and logistics management.
Currently I am pet and house sitting whilst looking towards purchasing another property.
For 33 years I had my own home at Black Rock, was the Coordinator of Bayside Neighbourhood Watch, in addition was involved in many other local community activities.
Cleanliness and house security is most important to me.
May I welcome new opportunities and with can remain most flexible to locations around Melbourne.

We highly recommend Philip. He took amazing care of our beloved cat Archie and dog Lola and the house while we were on holiday. His daily updates of their adventures definitely gave us peace of mind. Lola was throughly spoilt with beach and park walks. She may not have wanted us to come home!

Thank you for your most kind review. Am sure Lola and Archie shall be pleased to see you all home :-D
Philip is a fabulous communicator keeping us in the picture on a daily basis how our dogs were doing. Philip also was very kind and considerate to meet our dogs on several occasions before the house sit began bonding with our dogs . Our house was very clean and tidy upon return and we were greeted with two happy dogs, thank you very much for all your care and attention to detail Philip.

Thank you Karen for your kind review.
Phillip was very easy to communicate with and he was very calm and relaxed around my rambunctious dogs. The dogs were very relaxed and happy when I got home and looked well looked after.

Thanks for your kind review, your dogs Hugo, Tom and Cheese enjoyed my company over the weekend, had lots of fun.
No rating It was a pleasure to have Philip look after Puss. He seems to have an instinctive feeling for how to approach cats and quickly bonded with her. He was extremely reliable in sending me regular text messages to let me know how she was going. These were very reassuring. I found a very contented and settled cat when I returned home. I also found my house left clean and tidy. Philip was a great house guest.

Thank you for your most kind review. As mentioned it was a pleasure to care for all whilst you were away.
Philip is an excellent house and pets sitter. He is kind and considerate. He made sure we had basic food as were coming back from overseas at dawn. He communicated regularly and provided updates especially about our rescued dogs who eventually bonded to him. My husband and I highly recommend Philip to other members and would be delighted to have him housesit for us again in the future.
FLORA (Sunbury VIC, Nov 2019 - 2 weeks)
We are so happy to have Philip care for our pets and our place. Philip took the best care of Ruby and Stella, sent us daily email with detailed updates, we knew we had nothing to worry about. We arrived to a nice clean home a lovely thank you card and happy animals. Thank you so much Philip and we really hope to have you back again!
KRISTINA (Heidelberg Heights VIC, Jul 2019 - 1 month 1 week)
Thankyou for nice review, look forward to catching up soon
Philip was a wonderful house sitter- he was highly professional and his attention to detail in regard to pet care was exemplary. We were delighted to come home to find a beautiful gift of roses and a very happy and contented cat and milk and raisin bread in the fridge ( the perfect antidote to a late night return from overseas). Our home was left spic and span. We would recommend Phlip for any future house sits.
SANDRA (Black Rock VIC, Jun 2019 - 2 weeks 5 days)

Phillip is a great house/pet sitter. He cared for our home and precious furbabies very well. We highly recommend him. Thank you Phillip for looking after our house and girls so well. They seem to have thoroughly enjoyed your company. Holly has promised to never go on an adventure by herself

Hey Philip Thank you again so so much for looking after our pups. They were so happy to see you again when you popped round yesterday. I'm sure we will keep in touch :)

Thanks Phillip for looking after our eccentric pets. Communication was fantastic.
LARISSA (Werribee VIC, Jan 2019 - 1 week 3 days)
Philip spent one night at our house looking after our 12 week old pup Stella. He took her for walks and looked after her well. She seemed to really like him! Our house was clean and tidy on our return and communication with Philip was easy. Great first experience with house sitting for us! Would highly recommend Philip for future sits. Thanks so much for taking the time to come to Windsor for the night :)
PAT (Windsor VIC, Dec 2018 - 1 day)
Thankyou Pat, it was a pleasure to care for lovely Stella.
No rating We found Philip to be an excellent house sitter. He was very responsible in that he left our home clean & tidy. He treated our home with respect & he was also very good & caring with our animals. We would recommend Philip to anyone who finds themselves in need of a house sitter.
LAURIE (Romsey VIC, Aug 2018 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating Philip is a kind gentle man who obviously loves animals. Our many pets were happy, fed, exercised in his care. He maintained communication while we were away with regular updates. The house was spotless and even left some food for us on our return. I'd recommend him to anyone.
