Hello! Welcome to our profile. Thank you for taking the time to find out more about us.

UPDATE May 2024. We are currently available for last minute, short sits up to 7 days in and around Perth, Mandurah and Bunbury. We always sit for free because we genuinely love animals and helping people.

We are Scott and Dianne, a quiet, mature and kind couple who have been together for over 20 years. We have recently bought a house near Mandurah to be closer to family but we're keen to continue our wonderful pet sitting life with short stay sits in and around Perth.

We are very experienced pet sitters who have just completed our 108th pet sit (May 2024) Our roamings are slightly curtailed at the moment due to sharing the care of our elderly mother but we're eager to explore more of the wonderful Perth suburbs for shorter sits.

Rather than overload you with information, here are 5 facts about us. If you like what you read and think we could be a good match for you, we'd be more than happy to start a conversation to see how we can be of help to you and your furry pals.

1. We've been sitting all over the world since 2017. We love this nomadic pet sitting lifestyle because we genuinely love all animals and enjoy spending the majority of our time with all those entrusted to our care. We get asked back for lots of repeat sits so we guess our calm ways are working their magic.
2. We have loads of experience with cats from pedigrees to moggies. We love grooming and cuddling - the cats as well as ourselves! We also have had many great times with all the dogs we have cared for and we love nothing more than regular walks and playtime with all the animals we befriend. We've had lots of experience walking all sizes and breeds through our volunteer work at a dog shelter in Spain. We should also give a mention to the rabbits, small furries, fish and even sheep we've looked after but sadly we cannot care for reptiles (Dianne wishes them no harm but is not keen on sharing her space with them!). We're used to nervous animals, youngsters and elders and those requiring medication or special diets.
3. We are 100% committed and focused on all the animals we look after. We understand the importance of sticking to an animal's normal routine in order to minimise any stress they may feel in your absence. We're happy to cook special food, administer medication and have the animals sleep with us - if that's what makes them feel good. We have been pet owners ourselves so we know how it feels to love an animal and to trust someone else to care for it as well as you do.
4. We're retired business owners who occasionally work online. We are usually in and out throughout the day and more than happy to include your dog in our outings either on foot or, if they are happy, in the car. We can also guarantee we will be in most every night due to the fact that we're of an age now where we like nothing more than a good Netflix series in the evening! In short - we're there for the animals and we never leave them alone for more than a couple of hours (if that). Sometimes the cats wish we would leave them alone! But the dogs always like the company,
5. Lastly we consider ourselves to be fit, healthy and positive people who always try to see the good in things and practice kindness to all beings. We're also non smoking, light social drinkers, super tidy and organised and above all else - reliable. Once we commit to a sit, we are 100% there for you, the furries, the featheries, the house, the plants and anything else you need looking after.

BONUS FACT: We have over 70+ five star written reviews on another major worldwide pet sitting site. This year we will also have up-to-date Australian and UK police clearance certificates.

So that's a little bit about us. If you think we might be right for your sit, we'd be delighted to arrange a whatsapp/zoom call to introduce ourselves and tell you anything else you'd like to know. We're also happy to arrange pre-sit visits to get to know you and the animals beforehand and, of course, we will remain in contact throughout the sit via whatsapp, email or social media.

We hope you think we might be the right couple to care for your pets and home . We really look forward to hearing from you.

warm wishes
Scott and Dianne

Dianne and Scott were great! Communication was quick and easy from the start. They took such good care of our 14 year old dog and sent us updates throughout their stay. I would highly recommend them any time. Thank you both!
 
HAMIDAH (Mount Pleasant WA, Dec 2023 - 2 nights)
Thankyou Hamidah for your kind review. We really appreciate it.
Diane and her partner have been absolutely amazing. They dropped in before the stay, sent updates all throughout the stay and left the house cleaner then they found it. We arrived back late so they even arranged for some food for us. Would definitely have them back.
 
CHRISTOPH (Fremantle WA, Dec 2023 - 6 nights)
Thanks for your lovely review. We immediately fell in love with your boy Otto and had lots of nice cuddles with him. We sincerely hope we can return one day soon.
Whilst all of the above ratings are 5 star ratings I was very disappointed that they invited guests into our home without permission. I feel this is the number one breach of any house sitter. Our home is not an open house to their friends and I find this very invasive of them having strangers in our home. We did give permission for Dianne's sister to visit from Como a mere 1 hours drive away but even so they took liberties here and let her stay overnight at our home on two occasions, again no ...

CHRISTINE (Wannanup WA, Nov 2023 - 2 weeks 3 nights)
We were very sad to receive this review. As very experienced sitters we are aware of what is appropriate with regards visitors during a sit. Sadly a few days after we arrived my elderly mother had a stroke and was admitted to hospital. We genuinely did not wish to burden the owners with our ... MORE
Dianne and Scott were a pleasure to deal with and you couldn't ask for more professional housesitters. My timid cat usually hides when I've had housesitters, however with Dianne and Scott he was relaxed from the first meet and although he has never sat on anyone else's lap before, he was sitting on Dianne's lap on day 1! Great communicators and super considerate. We would recommend them to anyone and would gladly use them again.
 
CATHERINE (Mandurah WA, Mar 2023 - 1 week)
Thanks for the great review. We enjoyed our time immensely with Moony. Its always such a bonus to win over a timid animal and extra points if its a cat! We really hope we can spend more time with him in the future.
Literally perfect. There's not a single thing I would ask for or change, because Dianne and Scott were absolutely perfect. They communicated wonderfully, both before the sit and during (with daily updates). They left the house cleaner than it was to begin with, and my veggie garden was well cared for. Most importantly, our fur babies were cared for with love and experience. One of our cats requires daily medication, which can be quite tricky, but they managed easily. One of our dogs has ... MORE
 
AMY (Golden Bay WA, Oct 2022 - 2 days)
We were so happy to be able to help you guys out with your first experience of using this site. Thankyou both for being so kind and for all that you have done to rescue these dear souls. It was really great to meet like minded people who genuinely love all animals.
Amazing job done by Dianne and Scott they took very good care of our animals and home and went over and above i would defiantly have them back to house sit for us again
 
GEMMA (Baldivis WA, Oct 2022 - 4 days)
Thanks for your kind review. We really enjoyed spending time with your three. We love sitting in Baldivis - it was so convenient for everything. As always, we're missing them but we're happy knowing they have their real family back. Hopefully see you all again one day.
Dianne and Scott were the perfect house and pet sitters. This was the first time we have been away and not had to stress about our fur babies! They are both wonderful, easy going people and our babies were settled with them from the word go. Dianne is definitely a Cat whisperer as Henry and Alfie usually don't take too well to new people however, it didn't take long before they were both looking for cuddles and ended up sleeping on the bed. Communication was excellent with daily updates ... MORE
 
LORNA (Golden Bay WA, Jan 2020 - 1 week)
I am not sure I can find the right words to express how happy we were to have found Dianne and Scott to house sit for us! I had had a few people reply to my advert, but once I heard from Dianne I knew straight away that they were the right people to look after our house, but more importantly our pets! We have 3 cats (Crookshanks, Hermione and Luna) and 1 dog (Rusty) and we knew the cats would be okay - as most cats just do their own thing anyway, but the one we were worried about was Rusty. ...

TRACY (Baldivis WA, Dec 2019 - 4 weeks)
As regular house sitters we had never used house sitters ourselves. We currently added a beautiful tri coloured border collie puppy Titan to our family and as holidaying for 10 days were lucky enough to have Dianne and Scott come look after our boy and home while away.So glad we did. What an amazing experienced and professional couple they are. With daily photo and update on our Titan we were able to relax and enjoy a well earned holiday. Our home was looked after immaculately and garden ... MORE
 
KERRY (Baldivis WA, Nov 2019 - 1 week 3 days)
We really couldn't have picked more loving, caring and trustworthy people than Scott & Diane. Our pup Maddy was spoilt with walks, treats, love and plenty of affection. Our hearts were at ease knowing Maddy was in safe in hands, which made out trip that much more enjoyable. We were updated during the day on her whereabouts and how she was doing. When we returned home the house was spotless and well cared for, they even went as far as too ensure we had goodies for the next mornings coffee and ... MORE
