Pet Lover and Reliable Sitter

49, Administrator - Education Industry

Hi, I am an experienced house sitter and caring pet lover with excellent references. I am honoured to have repeat sits as owners comment that their pets are happy and relaxed when they return. I would love the opportunity to look after your pet(s) and your home while you're away.

I grew up with dogs, cats, a horse, chickens, budgies and gineau pigs as pets. I have cared for small, medium and large dogs as a house sitter including Border Collie, Cavoodle, Dachshund, Jack Russell, Pug, Labardor, Maltese, Greyhound and Staffordshire Bull Terrier; domestic short hair and special breed cats, including Burmese, Russian Blue, Siamese and Persians; horses, parrots, chickens and goldfish.

I am an active person and would enjoy taking your dog for a walk around the local neighbourhood or to the local park. As I work standard business hours I would be at home in the evenings and on weekends so any house bound pets would also receive a lot of company and attention.

I am comfortable administering medication as I have taken care of older dogs and cats that needed tablets on a daily basis for various medical conditions. I understand some pets need some special care during thunder storms and fireworks and am happy to sit with them and reassure them. If your pet is used to sleeping in the room with you, this is fine too.

I have my own transport and am a responsible, single, quiet, clean and tidy non-smoker who is reliable and trustworthy.

Having been a Homestay Host to overseas students I understand what it's like to have others stay in your home and will respect your privacy and requests.

I am confident and happy to attend to any jobs that are required such as gardening and maintenance.

In previous positions I have had experience with cleaners, couriers, electricians, gardeners, plumbers etc. and am able to handle any needs should they arise.

I can provide references that can verify that I am clean, reliable and responsible and I am happy to use the Aussie House Sitters' House Sitting Agreement. I have a National Police Check Certificate for your added peace of mind.

I will take care of your property and pets as if they were my own and ensure you return to a clean and tidy home and happy, relaxed pets.

If it's easier, I am happy to chat with you by phone or organise a time and place to meet as I am currently working and staying in Brisbane.

Terry was the PERFECT cat and house sitter while we were overseas for a month. She was reliable, did what she said she would, sent us videos and photo updates, left the house tidy and spotless and above all a very happy Princess. Thank you so much Terry, we were relaxed knowing Princess was in your good hands
MANDAKINI (Tarragindi QLD, Sep 2018 - 4 weeks)
Terry was an excellent house sitter for our home and pets. She has a real affinity for animals and we have dubbed her The Cat Whisperer as our very shy Tonkinese Monty warmed to her as she was actually able to photograph and pat him. She is very capable and not fussed by any challenges that arise. She is a great communicator and we were totally at ease and confident with all her capabilities. Upon our return the house and pets were all looking wonderful. She even left us a lovely bunch of ... MORE
PATRICK (LOGAN QLD, Mar 2020 - 3 weeks)
It was so nice to come back from holidays to a wonderfully clean home and happy pets. Even when meeting Terry before the sit started we felt confident our place and the mix of furry and feathered ones would be in great hands. Thank you and I hope the timing works again in the future, would love to have you back to house-sit again!

Terry was a great house sitter, will definitely be calling her back :)
ANGELA (Middle Park QLD, Jun 2019 - 3 weeks)
We were happy with Terry house/pet sitting for us while we were on holidays. House was left clean and our two cats were happy and content! We had great peace of mind and would recommend Terry.
REBECCA (Rochedale South QLD, May 2019 - 3 weeks)
We cannot recommend Terry highly enough. Our home was spotless on our return, our Furry Family were very well looked after. Terry communicated with us during our month long holiday with cute photo's of our Furry family. We would love Terry to look after our home again and would not hesitate to recommend her to any future House sitters. Thank you so much Terry.
CAROLE (Wakerley QLD, Apr 2019 - 4 weeks)
Terry did a wonderful job of caring for our home and our fur babies The house was left clean and tidy and the animals were well looked after We would definitely recommend and use terry again in the future
SHELLEY (Forest Lake QLD, Feb 2019 - 1 week)
The moment I met Terry I knew she was the perfect person to sit my house and cats. I knew my cats would like her as she has a very calming and kind presence. She kept the house very neat and tidy and the garden and my pot plants looked great. My cats were healthy and happy on our return. I really appreciated the pictures and updates that Terry sent us which gave us piece of mind and we could really relax knowing they were being so well looked after. I would highly recommend Terry and will book ... MORE
LARA (Fairfield QLD, Jan 2019 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Terry is a fantastic house and pet sitter. She looked after out big Queenslander house and garden, as well as our two big dogs, while we were on holidays for two weeks. When we returned the house was immaculately clean, the dogs calm and happy, and the garden looking lush and green. We cannot recommend Terry too highly: she was excellent. We would love to have Terry look after hour place and pets again.
CHRIS (Corinda QLD, Jan 2019 - 1 week 4 days)
Terry looked after our home and our elderly cat for a period of 5 weeks while we travelled Europe. Terry did a fabulous job - our house was in perfect shape when we returned and the cat had been very well cared for. Communication was great with Terry and she was happy to go the extra mile with our cat to ensure he stayed healthy while we were away. I have no hesitation in recommending Terry as a housesitter and hope to be able to utilise her services again when we next travel.
JUDY (Heritage Park QLD, Nov 2018)
Having never had a stranger stay in our house and look after our dog we were nervous placing the ad. Happily when Terry came over to meet us all we felt very at ease and this was solidified when she came to collect the keys the day before we left. All our messages before and during our time away were answered the same day which was great. While we were away we received regular pics/clips of our young lady who was clearly very comfortable in Terry's care. We wouldn't hesitate to ... MORE
TRACEY (Carindale QLD, Oct 2018 - 1 week 6 days)
No rating Terry was a great help for me as I travelled for work for a week. I have quite a few animals and she took all the jobs in her stride. She was easy to talk to and my animals were happy and relaxed with her. I would recommend Terry to look after yours.
JO (Wamuran QLD, May 2018 - 5 days)
No rating Terry is a very caring sitter who looked after our blind, hearing impaired, elderly dachshund. Muddy requires twice daily medication and needs company. We came home to a very well cared for dog and home. I would be very happy to recommend Terry to other home owners and would love to have her sit for us again
HELEN (Petrie QLD, Jan 2018 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating Just wonderful to go away and have Terry looking after house and pouch. So nice to come home to spotless house. Our Hummer has gone into the sulks since Terry left he seems to think we should shower him with the same attention Well done Terry for coping with the unexpected visit from the carpet snake in the chicken feed shed. I would highly recommend Terry as a house sitter.
NOELA (Canungra QLD, Dec 2017 - 2 weeks)
No rating I would gladly recommend Terry, as a housesitter. My home was neet and tidy and my little dog happy, on my return, from holiday. Thank you Terry.
