Kelly Gardner

40, Photographer

43, Film Technician

My name is Kelly. I am a 40 year old Photographer who lives in Melbourne.
I work in the Film Industry and often take jobs in Sydney (which is also my home town), so I am often looking for house sits while I am working on a film.
I love all animals and treat them all with the utmost respect and care. I am a big walker myself, so taking dogs for as much exercise as they require is no problem at all.
I generally work a few hours a day on set, about 3 times per week and the rest of the time I am working from home editing, so pets are not left too long alone.
Sometimes my partner Mark is with me also. He is in the film and TV industry as well, working as a grip.
We both love gardening, so happy to water and take care of plants too. We have our own house in Coburg, Melbourne with a very big backyard, so we appreciate the care and time required for gardening. We are both very house proud and treat everyone's home with the upmost respect.
Please see some of the beautiful dogs we have had the great pleasure of looking after over the years in the photo section.
Please feel free to call if you would like to know more about me.

Kelly and Mark came to our house in Randwick, Sydney over the Christmas break in 2019 and I cannot recommend them highly enough. We came back to an impeccably clean house and both of our high maintenance dogs were really happy and healthy. We have an elderly boxer and a young bulldog and it was immediately obvious just how much Kelly loves animals and especially dogs. Kelly responded to all of my emails and texts immediately which gave me such a huge sense of confidence in her. I just want ... MORE

Kelly and Mark are wonderful house sitters. They looked after our house and, more importantly, our dogs for 4 weeks. The love and attention they gave the dogs was amazing - we've never seen the dogs so happy to see visitors as when Mark and Kelly visited a few weeks later! One of our dogs fell ill during the house sit and Kelly and Mark were so flexible with a couple of vet visits. I would not hesitate to recommend Kelly and Mark as house sitters and we hope to have them ack again!

No rating Kelly and her partner Mark came and stayed 4 nights over the Eater break. Kelly was super easy going and I felt no worries letting her look after our house & pooch Ellie. Unfortunately I didn't meet Mark. Our house was tidy and bed sheets even washed and on the line. Kelly and mark are welcomed back anytime. Cheers guys :)

No rating Kelly stayed at our place with our 2 year old energetic cocker spaniel. She was a wonderful housesitter. It rained in Sydney that whole week and she took him out numerous times a day! Kelly was respectful and was great at communicating with us. I would recommend her to anyone.
