Dog Shepherd

59, printer part time

Hi there, for most of the past 30 years I have been a proud home & pet owner. My beautiful dog recently passed away, so I'm now looking at minding other peoples pets. I host a weekly radio show, & also have a current working with children clearance. I used to own a horse and am very good with animals. I can also drive a tractor and
ride-on mower, am a capable handyman & enjoy gardening. A non smoker, and rarely drink alcohol . On the home front I am quite a recluse, and enjoy my own company. There are a couple of reviews being posted this week, as well I have 2 excellent real estate references, Commercial & residential.
Thanks for looking

Rick was a great house sitter. Easy to communicate with, showed up on time and happy to help out with our horse and dog. Came home to a clean home and animals were all happy and fed. Thanks Rick for looking after our place/animals and for letting us go away with peace of mind.

Couldn't speak more highly of Richard. The house was as we left it, (very neat & tidy). He also bonded very well the horses, feeding them twice a day, and the dogs were sorry see him leave. We would most certainly us Richard again for future sits.

Thank you John & Nadia. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at your home. Also i found your dogs and horses to be a pleasure to look after. I would happily sit for you again
