Down-to-earth, animal loving couple

My husband and I would love the opportunity to look after your pets and home. We are both very comfortable with any breed of dog as we have grown up with, and had dogs of our own for many years (maltese poodles, boxers, miniature dobermains, boston terrier, rhodesion ridge back, rottweiler, to name but a few). We love to cuddle and play with them, give them their daily excercise and receive their unconditional love without hesitation. We also have experience in looking after cats, bearded dragon, pet mice, guinea pigs, chickens and fish. We are originally from the Castle Hill NSW area where we lived for more than 10 years after moving to Australia from South Africa. Our motto is to look after your home and pets the same way you would.

We both work full-time but we both have the opportunity to sometimes work from home on certain days of the week. We are both non-smokers, in our late 40s and just generally good down to earth people. My husband grew up on a cattle farm and is a real handy man so if there is anything small that needs fixing, he's your man for the job. He absolutely loves gardening, fishing, boating and camping whereas I am more of a house hen and love to cook. We also enjoy going for daily walks in the neighbourhood.

We are very keen to meet with you should you consider us as house sitters to sit down for a chat and discuss any questions you may have.

And there was milk, eggs and bacon in the fridge which was a lovely touch - we were too tired to go out shopping after a 30 hour trip from UK via China, so very grateful to have ... MORE

No rating Vic and Lurinda went the extra mile with keeping the house and the dogs clean and well looked after.

No rating I would like to highly recommend Lurinda and Vic as very special house sitters and puppy carers! The looked after our home as if were there own and we were very lucky to have them, not once but twice! You would be very lucky to have them as we were. Thank you again and they will always be welcome at our house.
