GOLD COAST - Playful Pet Carers

62, Semi Retired

74, Retired

Gold Coast Animal lovers and experienced pet carers. We would love to play, walk and care for your babies as if they were our own.
Also happy to sit injured, unwell or extra feisty pets.
We have done many pet sits and can supply great References.
We prefer short stays of 1 to 4 days. Also happy to do last minute sits or even help out for a few days if your booked sitter can't make it or needs to leave early.

We have been together 30 years, and are trustworthy, well respected home owners on the Gold Coast. We've had professional careers and owned Businesses. We are very healthy, happy and adore animals.

We are here because we live in an apartment and we don't have any pets (except the wild lorikeets who visit us) and have no children. We really miss having our own animals. We would feel blessed to look after your beloved pets while you travel or just need to go away for a night or 4,

Sharryn grew up on farms surrounded by dogs, cats, fish, birds, chooks, reptiles, horses and cattle. Dad said I should have become a Vet. Haha. He was right!!
Bill had German Shepherds and has an incredible affinity with all breeds of dogs. In fact he approaches every dog we walk past .. haha.

We have owned large homes and, if required, can maintain your garden, lawns and pool, And we will leave your home as we found it... clean and tidy.

FYI, Sharryn works part-time .

Please feel free to request our references and meet us before you decide.
ID has been verified.
We hope to meet you very soon and very excited to look after your home and treasured pets.

Sharryn was absolutely amazing !!! Kylo our quite large, quite cheeky husky loves her. She sent daily pics of their adventures to the beach and even rustled up a new mat so Kylo could lay by the door in comfort. Kylo was happy and healthy when we returned, our house was spotless and our yard was clean. Couldn't ask for a better pet/house sitter and I already booked Sharryn for our next trip away. Sharryn truly loves animals, she takes pride in her work as a pet sitter and is the most organised ... MORE
SADIE (Southport QLD, Sep 2020 - 4 days)
Thank you Sadie. I absolutely adored looking after your gorgeous husky, Kylo. She is very well behaved and easy to care for. Looking forward to our next booking.
Sharryn is a fantastic dog sitter, she takes the time to regularly update you with pictures and videos. Our dogs had a great time with her. House was kept spotless and have already booked her for our next trip! Would not hesitate to recommend her - 5 stars
GEMMA (Benowa QLD, Aug 2020 - 4 days)
Thanks Gemma. I loved every minute with your 2 yo puppies, Teddy ( Poodle X) and Frankie (white Maltese x Shitzu). And staying in your beautiful home.
Sharryn is exceptional. Extremely conscientious, caring and even enhanced the lives of our pets. Sharryn raised the feeding/water bowls of our 15 year old pooch by providing flower pots into which they snuggly fitted so Rosie finds eating/drinking easier. Sharryn constructed a platform above the aviary ground level and perched a house for Buddy, the geriatric cockatiel, Buddy loves this engineering feat as is evident from the amount of time he spends in his house. He is much less anxious ... MORE
BRON (Benowa QLD, Jul 2020 - 6 days)
Thanks Bron. I absolutely loved caring for Rosie the 15yo Border Collie, and 3 Cockatiels, Cheeky, Shadow and Buddy (the older bird).
You took beautiiful care of our puppy, doting on her and genuinely enjoying your time. I feel so fortunate to have met you both and really feel comfortable and confident in our next adventures away. Thank you again
TARYN (Tamborine Mountain QLD, Jul 2020 - 2 nights)
Thanks Taryn. We loved taking care of your beautiful Belgian Shepherd puppy and staying in your lovely home.
Sharryn is amazing house / pet sitter. Our dogs were in the best hands. Sharryn happily gave one dog his medication twice a day. Both dogs were taken to their favourite spot, the beach! They were given lots of love and attention. The house was spotless and the dogs were so happy on our return home. We highly recommend Sharryn.
REBECCA (ASHMORE QLD, Jun 2020 - 3 nights)
Thanks Rebecca. I had so much fun and enjoyed sending the pics and vids of your adorable puppies to you. :)
We were new owners of a 16 week old groodle puppy, Charlie. We were also first time users of Aussie House Sitters so were feeling a little anxious about having a complete stranger look after our precious bundle as well as our home. However, we need not have worried. We met and chatted with Sharryn and Bill beforehand and found them both to be extremely warm and friendly. They immediately bonded with Charlie and we went on holidays feeling relaxed and confident that he would be in good ... MORE
LYN (Paradise Point QLD, Dec 2019 - 1 week)
It was amazing looking after Charlie, your cute, fluffy 16 week old Groodle puppy.. Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We certainly look forward to watching him grow up. :). :)
Sharon was amazing and loved our home and dogs like her own. Thank you Sharon. Would highly recommended Sharon. Very professional too.
MELINDA (Gold Coast QLD, Oct 2019 - 3 days)
Thank you Melinda. I certainly felt at home. Your pets were very affectionate. And I loved that pool of yours.
PROBAL (Ashmore QLD, Oct 2019 - 3 DAYS)
Thank you Probal. I definitely connected with all of your pets. And loved staying in your beautiful home. Xo
Sharryn was amazing for our first experience of house and dog sitting. She came by and met with us and met with the pets prior to the booking. She sent daily pics and videos of all their activities which made Matt and myself extremely comfortable. The house was spotless on our return and pets very happy, in secret I think that they miss her :). Thank you so much Sharryn for your care and communication. I would highly recommend Sharryn to anyone needing a loving pet sitter and I hope she will ... MORE
TRACEY (Pacific Pines QLD, Sep 2019 - 6 days)
Thank you so much. Thats lovely. I secretly miss them too. Haha. And look forward to next time. Xo
Sharryn was exceptional for house and dog sitting while we were away. Before the designated time, Sharryn came by to meet Ms Coco (Bernese Mountain Dog) so that it would be an easy transition. Sharryn took excellent care of Coco with plenty of walks, swims and cuddles (all of her favourite things!) It looked like Coco had as much of a holiday as we did it with great communication and photos regularly from Sharryn. Our house almost looked cleaner than when we left it. We would high recommend ... MORE
SHANE (Isle of Capri QLD, Aug 2019 - 7 Days)
Thank you Shane. I simply adored Coco. She is so easy to care for. She is very affectionate, well behaved and a very happy dog. We had so much fun together. Your waterfront home is like a resort with a lovely warm pool, floating pontoon with kayak and a large outdoor deck area overlooking the ... MORE
Sharryn did a wonderful job of looking after our house and "kids" whilst we had a short holiday. She even sent us photos with updates of what they had been up to. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sharryn for anyone looking for someone to look after their house and babies.
DAVID (Hollywell QLD, Jul 2019 - 3 days)
Thanks David and Tania. Thats lovely. I would be delighted to look after your fur babies again at any time. Cheers. Sharryn
Sharryn was a wonderful sitter. Returned to a home that was as we left it, Kimba was very well looked after, Sharryn sent regular updates and photos. She will be our first choice for future house sits.
MARTIN (Runaway Bay QLD, Jun 2019 - 1 week 1 day)
Thank you Martin and Cherie. Thats lovely. I cant wait to catch up with you both and to see MY cute little Kimba again. Xoxo.
Sharryn & Bill were able to jump in very last minute (which was amazing), to care for my fur family for the weekend. We returned to find the house cleaner than it had probably been when they found it (had to leave the teenage kids behind for a day & to handover), plus my mountain of washing had been folded But most importantly the dogs were happy, well walked & fed with no sign of missing us! Happily recommend Sharryn & Bill to anyone as pet/housesitters. Thanks guys!
JEANIE (Elanora QLD, Jun 2019 - 2 days)
