Honest Dependable Sitters

28, Seasonal Worker

30, Seasonal Worker

We are Lex and Jimmy - mature, responsible, clean and tidy, trustworthy pet lovers!

We lived in China for five years and taught English as a second language, before moving back to Australia two years ago to live on the road full time.

The first year we were in a campervan, but now we travel in a 4wd with rooftop tent and two bikes attached to our rear spare wheel, so our only necessity is ample parking space with a 2.7m height allowance!

Between us over the years we've had small, medium and large dog breeds, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, tropical fish and a turtle.
Since living on the road we have had many different farm jobs (dairy, sheep, fruit picking and packing, gardening, fencing) so we are happy to be in the garden or doing maintenance and Jimmy is a great Mr-Fix-It. It also means we have experience and are comfortable with large animals like cows and horses, and are very interested in sustainable living lifestyles and would love to look after your chooks and collect their eggs!

Living on the road full time means we are seasonal workers, so if you need someone to be home with your pets a majority of the time, and either take them for daily walks and runs, or put on a film and cuddle on the couch with them, we're the sitters for you!

Please get in touch to see if we are heading your way at the right time, as we are flexible with dates and detours!

We would rate Lex and Jimmy a 100 if we could. Communication with Lex was clear, excellent English, and well written. They are a delightful couple and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting them. Their attention to our 2 dogs and cat and fish was fantastic and the animals had a wonderful time with them. They left the house in even better shape that they found it in, and we can't wait to have them back for a short stay in early March. Thankyou so much Lex and Jimmy.

Words cant express the gratitude for Lex and Jimmy for the love and care they took of both Sammi and my house. From the time they accepted the sit through to post-sit, they were in regular communication in the lead-up, with photo up dates throughout the sit, showing all their adventures with Sammi (who had huge smiles on her face in each photo). I arrived home to a well cared for home, with the garden/grass looking far healthier then when I left :) Sammi is still sad that you have left and has ... MORE

Lex and Jimmy what a lovely young couple you are. We felt completely comfortable leaving our home and pets in your care. Thank you both so much for helping us out. Communication was great, nothing was too much trouble they even fixed a wooden shelf that blew off the deck and picked up leaf and stick litter after some strong winds. When we got home the house was in perfect condition, sheets washed and bed re made. Our pets were happy so what more could we have asked for. I strongly ... MORE
