Experienced & reliable house & pet carers.
We are a friendly couple (both non smokers) who retired early (early 60's) who enjoy travel, meeting new people and exploring new places. We are both very fit and don't mind working or helping around your house or property. We also just love caring for your beloved pets/animals which is the best part of home sitting.
We love to house sit as we have travelled both Australia and the world extensively in the past and always preferred to stay in B&B's or home/farm stays etc. Now we like to take our travel a little slower and meet new people, their lovely pets and enjoy the local communities.
We are available to house sit "all year" at any time and have many excellent references from past stays if requested. We have heaps of house sitting experience with a variety of dog breeds, from Labrador, Jack Russell x, Kelpie, Corgi, Collie, Staffy, Rottweiler, Lurcher's and Samoyed to name a few, but we also love our cats just as much if not more and have cared for just as many loving cats (including very elderly ones). We also have quite a bit of experience with "rescue" pets who can have behavioural or social problems or were in need of daily medication etc.
We also totally understand that owners (especially first timers) can be nervous about leaving their precious and much loved pets and homes in the hands of strangers, so for all our sits we like to keep in regular contact with them leading up to, during and even after caring for them to make sure all is going well.
We have also been homeowners all our lives and very much enjoyed caring for our properties including the gardening, property renovation and maintenance etc. We have built 2 houses and renovated 4 more ourselves and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We were both born and raised on farms. Myself on a dairy farm and as such love animals, caring for them and have had a number of pets, including a toy poodle, cats and birds for many years, but now just love caring for other peoples pets.
We also know how to operate, maintain and repair many different types of machinery such as ride on mowers, pumps, tractors and other farm equipment.
