Full-Time Animal Carer & House Sitter

58, Company Director

45 weeks with pet/farm animal care, garden care and house sitting.

My Why:
Since recently moving back to Melbourne from country Victorian farm-life, and as I am newly single, I love to care for household pets and farm animals.

8 reviews on this site, that you can see at the 'My Reviews' section, and
3 reviews on another site which I can show you if we meet.
(4 house owners inviting me back to repeat housesit)

Work from home:
As I work mostly online and by mobile, in my roles as a company director and coach, I am consistently available to care for the house and animals.

I am energetic, a regular walker, responsible, tidy, clean, love animals and am actively seeking house sitting...
for 1 week plus, in Melbourne and country Victoria.
I am a non-smoker.

Happy to talk by phone or visit if that would help you work out if I am the right person to care for your home and animals whilst you are away.

Kind regards,

We were so pleased to have John to care for Balian and Milla (cats) and Sophie (dog) while we were away for six weeks in the UK. He gave us regular updates and it was evident, on our return, that the animals and house had been very well cared for. John stepped into the breach only two weeks before we were to leave, after we had been badly let down by our original sitter, for which we will be eternally grateful, and he proved to be as reliable and professional as we hoped. Many thanks John. ... MORE

I knew straight away when we met John prior to the sit that I trusted him to look after our house and pets. He has a gentle and friendly nature which was confirmed by how comfortable our fur babies were with him. One of our cats who is normally freaked put by new people and change was curling up on the bed with him in no time. John communicated with us regularly and looked after the house so well. It was a pleasure to come home with everything clean and tidy! We highly recommend John!!!

We had John sit our home and animals for three weeks recently and he was brilliant! He adored our boxer girls and our house location and he was very comfortable in our home. Our dogs were loved, fed and exercised daily and John thoroughly enjoyed his time here. On our arrival back home he had put milk in our fridge for our morning coffee and the house was immaculate. All his bedding was washed and on the line and the boxers were very happy. I highly recommend John as a sitter and lover of ... MORE

An excellent house sitter, who looked after 3 cats and 2 hens expertly and lovingly, and left the house beautifully clean. He also sent regular videos and photos of our animals. He would be my first choice for a house sitter in the future.

John was a great housesitter. My home was very tidy when I returned . The cats were well looked after, in fact seem to have bloomed in his care. Great regular updates. I would definitely recommend John and welcome him back.
MARGARET (Aspendale Gardens VIC, May 2019 - 1 month 2 weeks)
We invited John now for the second time to look after our 2 dogs, 1 cat and the house and I must say it is was an utter delight again. Not only were all animals ecstatic to see him again but we also new that the house will be in very safe hands. This time around JOHN was looking after things for us for over 4 weeks during summer and I cannot praise him enough. On our return not only were all animals in their best shape, physically and more important mentally but even the garden and the house ... MORE
OLIVER (Daylesford VIC, Nov 2018 - 1 week 6 days)
This was our first time using a house sitter and we were worried about doing so but John made the experience very pleasant. He made regular contact with us via text while we were away. We came home to a cleaner house than when we left and the animals all seemed happy, the cats almost seemed to miss John our first night back home. Would highly recommend John and would happily use a house sitter again after our first experience
