Chris and Terry

61, Animal Attendant - retired

60, retired

We are a (non smoking) couple travelling the country with our 23 foot van. We love animals, have lots of experience with dogs. I have 13 years experience working in animal care and my husband has 20 years experience in training dogs and instructing at Dog clubs. We do not have any dogs of our own now as we decided after ours passed that we would not replace them until we finish travelling.
My husband is also an avid gardener. We are both very house proud people and we love to stay in a clean home. We arrive at a clean house and it is clean when we leave.

Chris and Terry looked after our dogs and house at a very difficult time., when the peak of the NSW bushfires severly threatened our home. They went above and beyond to make decisions to care for our dogs and home. We can never thank them enough for everything they did. In the weeks that followed our dogs showed us how much they were cared for through the excitement of seeing Chris and Terry in our community. We would love to have them back in our home and our fur friends would love to see ... MORE

This was our first time using housesitters of any sort and we were very impressed. Christine and terry were amazing from day one. They arrived a day before we left internationally, which was lovely. They are kind, caring and down to earth people. They looked after our puppy pug and 2 cats amazingly while we were away. When we returned, our house was spotless and our pets were happy. Thank you very much Christine and Terry. We would 100% recommend them and would love to have them back ... MORE
CHRISTIE (Thornlands QLD, Oct 2019 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Christene and Terry looked after our house and two labradoodles for a week recently and we would recommend them very highly. Although we had not met in person before they arrived, we found them both so friendly and easy to talk to that we felt we had known them for a while. Their experience with house sitting shows in all areas - everything was looked after very well. They took care of some water damage during a severe storm which was a big relief. With Terry's expertise in training dogs, he ... MORE

Sadly we did not have a great rapore with our house sitters. Different opinions.

Highly recommend these wonderful house sitters/ pet sitters. Kept us informed while we were away and left our house immaculate
KELLIE (Newport QLD, Jul 2019 - 1 week 3 days)
I just wanted to say a few words about Christene & Terry. They are such lovely kind and caring people. My dogs were so well looked after and very happy. My house was immaculate which isn't easy with four dogs. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering them for housesitting.
BOBBY (Morayfield QLD, Jun 2019 - 2 weeks 4 days)
Christine and Terry are very reliable house sitters. They arrived the day before to meet the fur babies and get to know where everything is, they are easy and reliable with communication. I arrived home to happy, healthy pets and a clean house - what more could you ask for! I would highly recommend them and be happy to have them return for another house sit.

Christene and Terry are wonderful house sitters. We came home to a spotless house and incredibly happy dogs. The dogs were so happy they didn't even care when we got home! Just the way it should be, even the impossibly messy bird cage was clean. Christene and Terry are so friendly, organised and neat we would recommend them to anyone. Hopefully one day we will be able to meet again. Regards Helen and Trevor
HELEN AND TREVOR (Eagle Point VIC, Mar 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
This was our very first time having house sitters. WOW how lucky were we to have Christine and Terry look after our home and fur kids. So nice to come home and find everything exactly as we left it if not better. Terry even trained our very excitable border collie to behave on the lead. We highly recommend Christine and Terry to be your first choice in house sitters. We will be staying in touch for our next trip away.

We had Christene and Terry look after our two boys. They did a fantastic job. Would love to have them back again to look after Patch and Benny. Highly recommend Christene and Terry.

No rating My beautiful golden retriever had the privilege of Christine and her husband looking after her why we went away for 2weeks. We came home to a very happy dog. Our home was well cared for and spotless when we came home. I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely couple in the future.
JOANNE (Bracken Ridge QLD, Jul 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
We can't thank Christene and Terry enough for taking such good care of our home and our furbabies while we were away for two weeks. They were friendly, easy going, reliable and obviously trustworthy. We know Benson and Bonnie were very well looked after and the house was clean and tidy when we returned. Thanks so much Chris and Terry, it was very nice to meet you and we feel very fortunate that you were available to look after our house and doggies. Your care and communication was very much ... MORE
MANDY (Tarwin Lower VIC, Apr 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Christene and Terry stayed at our home in Korumburra for 8 days recently, and they took wonderful care of our home, but more importantly they provided wonderful company, love and care to our special needs furry girl Lucy. Christene and Terry are awesome, friendly people, and upon meeting them we immediately knew that our home and precious girl were in very good hands. We would not hesiatate to recommend them to anyone considering house sitters.
VICKI (Korumburra VIC, Mar 2018 - 1 week 1 day)
Christine and Terry are a lovely couple who were immediately friendly and related to Mac at once, which made me feel totally relaxed about leaving both my house and my dog for the first time. We kept in touch during the 7 weeks we were away and they even sent me photos of Mac. It was wonderful to be able to enjoy my holiday without having to worry if Mac was OK, he was obviously loving them and certainly showed he missed them after we came back. We hope that Chris and Terry will sit for us ... MORE

No rating Christine and Terry looked after our home and pets for 3 weeks whilst we were on holidays. They were great communicators and kept us up to date the whole time we were away. They even kept us in the loop with the gossip on our street! Christine and Terry looked after our 2 dogs (1elderly) cat and gold fish as if they were their own. We returned to find our house In Immaculate condition and lawns mowed! I would not hesitate to reccomend chris and Terry as Housesitters, and it was a great first ... MORE
