Hi Fellow Animal Lovers and Home Owners,
Paul and I have been married for 4 years and have 4 adult children between us. I have worked in schools all my adult life with the littlest ones but have been retired since the end of 2017 and Paul has recently retired as a Manager in the earth moving industry. We want to remain active and follow our dream of more travel. We love exploring new places, meeting new people and enjoy nice, long walks. Hoping to have some gorgeous dogs to keep us company on the beach walks, at the dog park, etc. and cats to cuddle and care for at home. I also love photography and we both do a small amount of personal work on our laptops while relaxing at home so your animals will have lots of time and attention from us and your home will be occupied adding extra security.
We have always taken our responsibilities very seriously and house sitting even more so. We will treat your home with the utmost respect. We will follow the owner's instructions (if any) regarding what and how things are to be done and happy for extra duties like watering the garden, putting bins out, collecting mail, mowing the lawn, cleaning the pool, etc.
We will keep you updated as often or as little as you like and happy to answer all requests for information, photos or just reassurance.
We have both always been very house proud and now that we have sold up our home and most of our possessions and are living the life of roving retirees, we take great pride in looking after the homes that we rent or house sit.
Back when I had my own much loved dog, house sitting was not really heard of much. Each time I went on holiday, my precious Minty and I both experienced the trauma of going to the kennels, trying to part ways and then a whole holiday wondering and fretting if he was okay. Paul and I would be thrilled and honoured to help prevent such anxiety for other people and their 'babies.' We can bring peace of mind to pet owners (who will enjoy their often much needed break more) by providing a secure, loving and caring atmosphere and, more importantly, a less anxious time for the animals who remain in their familiar surroundings (their own home, bed and environment). We have lots of love and affection to lavish on the fur babies in our care (and the not so furry).
New to this career this year but with 7 sits already notched up, 1 in process and 7 more confirmed on this and other sites. Also lots of experience with sitting for family and friends (homes and animals) and maintaining our own homes and units over the years to a very high standard. We are both extremely tidy and clean living, non-smokers, mature and responsible, honest and reliable. We have always looked after our homes and belongings well and have a great deal of respect for the property of others.
We have had experience with dogs (lots), cats, guinea pigs, fish and budgies. Looking for opportunities to connect with furry friends for long walks on the beach, play date in the yard or park and cuddles at home on the couch or house sits without pets where we can get busy in the garden, maintaining pools and lawns and keeping your homes spotless and secure.
As well as some external references (character, landlord and house/pet sitting) which I can provide, I also have a Blue Working with Children Card which consists of regular Police Checks and is valid until 2020. Before that expires, we will be organising Police Checks for your peace of mind.
If you think we would be suitable for your home and pets in 2020, please drop us a line.
We genuinely look forward to hearing from you and can't wait to meet lots of new pets and their owners.
Leanne and Paul

It was our brilliant good fortune to firstly, meet Leanne and Paul and secondly, that they were available to housesit for us and care for our old Boswell. They cared for absolutely everything perfectly, our dog adores them and so do we. We are so grateful for everything they did for us so that we could get away without a worry in the world. Fortunately, we have booked them again 12 months ahead for 2020!

Leanne and Paul were such wonderful Housesitters. Communication was excellent from first contact. The animals were all content and very well cared for upon our return. Would most Definitely recommend Leanne and Paul for future house sits.

We always think that finding housesitters for a short stay is always more difficult than a long one but this time we scored! Paul and Leanne were a pleasure to deal with right from the start. They cared for our two Labradoodle girls well and they were definitely calm and relaxed when we got home. Winta can be a bit anxious at times but she was totally unphased whilst being looked after by Paul & Leanne. The house was cleaner and tidier on our return which was especially nice! We would use them ... MORE

Leanne and Paul goes sat for us March/April 2019 and I cannot recommend them highly enough. We originally organised them to look after our dog however plans changed last minute with regard to the dog and he went to stay with friends but Leanne and Paul still looked after our house. We met them in person prior to the sit and found them warm and personable. Leanne communicated with me while we were overseas with regard to our lawn mower person not turning up. Her husband went to the trouble of ... MORE
