37, Architectural Designer and Small Business Owner
Hi! We are the McDow family. We are a traveling family of 3 husband, wife, and our 6yr old daughter.
We are from Norman, Oklahoma-USA and have been traveling the world in search of where we would like to call home. We spent 3 months traveling in the USA and 9 months exploring New Zealand. We are now here in Australia where we plan to spent the next three months.
We own our own architecture firm as well as teach English to kids online and work via the internet in the evening.
We are fairly new to this house sitting website but have house/pet sat several times not only in NZ but in the States as well. We have watched and cared for people homes, dogs, cats, chickens, and sheep. As well as taken care of their yards and gardens. We have several reviews from all the places we have stayed at during our time in NZ and are happy to send those over upon request. We have now completed five house sitting jobs and have received great reviews from them all. They can be seen under our reviews. We are currently house sitting two cats here in Melbourne and plan to head to Sydney on July 13th. Where we plan to spend at least a month if not longer and would like to end our trip here with a visit to Cairns to swim in the Great Barrier Reef.
Things we can provide:
*photos and updates on your pets and home as often as you would like
*Give medication to pets
*Garden and yard work
*Clean home ready for you when you return
*Willing to learn new skills that your property or pet might need us to do
Why are we doing this?
*We love animals and truly enjoy spending time with them, taking them on walks, and giving them love and cuddles. Being around animals makes us happy and as we can not have any of our own at the moment since we are traveling this is a great way for us to not only provide a service to others but to spend time with animals.
*We love meeting new people and making new connections with others around the world
*To save money - traveling is expensive especially when you are a family and doing this allows us to not only save money but to see different parts of the world and will help us continue to travel.
We are happy to answer any questions, meet in advance (if the time and locations match up), talk over the phone or Skype.
We look forward to hearing from you and would love the opportunity to come and take care of your home and pets.
Thanks for your time and consideration,
