Professional House Pet Sitters

66, Retired Supervisor

66, Retired Govt Clerk

We are a non smoking retired couple. We are used to both big and small dogs or pets. We have owned three shepherds of our own and have experience with most breed of dogs or cats. I come off a farm so can handle most animals with confidence.
I also can operate all types of machinery with confidence and experience.
We both enjoy gardening and love to keep your property well maintained and clean.
We come with excellent references from previous house and pet sitting and also personal references. Plus Police Clearances.
If your in need of a couple who will care about your property and treat your pets with the same love you do. We are available on dates listed in profile,
We will forward recent references on request or list them on our profile as we finish each house sit. You can also check our Reviews.
All our clients can be contacted and many are repeat clients. Looking forward to hearing from you. Some later references will be posted on site within a week. We do this full time and have our own mobile home to travel and stay in if need be.

Regards Michael and Chris

Michael and Christine looked after our home for a month while we were travelling overseas in September/October 2019. We were mostly concerned about leaving our three pets: two cats and a dog, while we were away, but we need not have worried. Michael and Chris immediately became their best friends - and sent us regular photos to assure us of their continual well-being. We were able to relax, assured that our little animals were in the best of hands, and that our home was being well cared for. We ... MORE

Micheal and Chris looked after our home and our dogs for 12 days. In the time we were away we had contact with them and felt reassured that everything was okay. How great to come home to a cooked meal and tidy home . Holidays are so much easier with great house sitters . Thank you for being here and we would love you to house sit when we get away again.
SONIA (CORNUBIA QLD, Mar 2020 - 1 week 4 days)
No rating Michael and Christine were wonderfully sitters. They had to deal with lots of rain, so they mowed the lawns and washed the dog pretty much weekly. Christine even cooked us dinner on our return and if course the house was all nice and tidy and clean. We also let them use our small vehicle as they only had the large campervan, and they left the petrol tank full. after use. I hope to be able to use them again, if we can fit in with their busy schedule.
CAROL (Belmont QLD, Feb 2020 - 3 weeks)
Michael and Chris took the very best care of our little pet trio (dog, cat, and cantankerous bird). The pets were all very happy and relaxed on our return. They had clearly enjoyed the company of Michael and Chris and were looking for them after they left. Michael was kind enough to drop us to a very early flight and picked us up on our return. The car and house were well looked after and Chris had cooked us a delicious roast, as we returned right on dinner time. They're a lovely couple and ... MORE
LISA (Clear Mountain QLD, Jan 2020 - 1 week 5 days)
Michael and Chris taken care of our house and animals for four weeks while we were overseas. We came back to tidy house, all animals were happy and well. We have also allowed the use of one of our cars and it was looked after well and was fuelled before returning, which we have appreciated. Generally our preference is not to allow car use, but we had to make that decision at a last minute as it was not raised initially. Communication was easy when we checked in to see how everything was going. ... MORE
MARIA (Cornubia QLD, Dec 2019 - 4 weeks)
Super housesitters. Returned home after three weeks to a clean dog and a clean house and car. Very easy to communicate with and easy going. Have no hesitation in recommending Chris and Michael to anyone. Would most definately have them house sit again (and again).
GINA (Ocean Beach WA, Aug 2019 - 3 weeks)
Michael & Chris came into our home after Christmas, and the ensuing chaos at having 19 people spend the weekend. We had to dash almost immediately for the airport, and left them with the detritus. Bless their hearts, we came back to fat and glossy horses and newly planted shrubs in the garden all alive and well despite 40° temperatures, The state of house we left them was returned sparkling house. Chris come back....,,,,Thank you so much, and I highly remain recommend these two wonderful ... MORE
RUTH (Toodyay WA, Jan 2019)
Thank you Michael and Chris for taking such good care of our home and pets while we were away on holidays. Communication was fantastic- we had updates every couple of days as requested and the house was left very clean with clean towels and sheets on the bed. All we had to do was come home and fall into bed. We would highly recommend Michael and Chris for any house sitting roles, especially with high energy dogs.
SARAH (JANE BROOK WA, Dec 2018 - 3 weeks)
Michael and Chris were fantastic house sitters. The house was spotless when got home, the garden well cared for, my precious bonsai healthy and well and of course our fur babies were in excellent shape. Thank you and hope we can do it all again, highly recommended as house sitters.

TONI (Carwoola NSW, Nov 2017)
No rating Thank you Michael and Chris for taking such wonderful care of our aging dog, and of our house while we were away for 4 weeks. Bundy was obviously well loved and cared for in our absence, and similarly we were greeted by a very clean and well maintained house on our return. We would thoroughly recommend Michael and Chris to others, and would not hesitate to utilize their services again in the future.

KEN (Modanville NSW, Jan 2017 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Michael and Chris were fantastic. They had everything thrown at them while staying at our house, (including hail that damaged the house, which they repaired), they also had a ceiling fan burn out which they sorted out. They looked after the alpacas, chickens and our border collie incredibly well. Would definitely recommend them. Thanks Darren and Ilka

BRETT & HILLARY (Jimboomba QLD, Oct 2016 - 3 weeks)
No rating We had complete peace of mind knowing that Christine and Michael were caring for our home and "chooks". Our home was beautifully cared for and the company of Michael and Christine "special". Thank you Michael and Christine, our new and dear friends.
MARGARET AND RUSSELL (Jimboomba QLD, May 2016 - 2 weeks 4 days)
No rating After three weeks away it was lovely coming home to a beautiful clean home, a well maintained garden and three happy dogs! We were so grateful to Michael and Chris for the great job they did. Going away is never easy but it was wonderful to leave knowing things were in capable hands. They were very thorough in ensuring they knew what needed to be done and were happy to ask questions. We would happily welcome Michael and Chris back to our home and confidently recommend them to others ... MORE
KATIE & SCOTT (Chinchilla QLD, Mar 2016 - 3 weeks)
No rating From the moment I returned from my holiday I knew my pets had had an amazing holiday as well. Both Chris and Michael are total pet lovers and the pets love them. From the moment I met this couple I knew both my home and my pets would be safe with them. I do not hesitate in recommending Michael and Chris for any house sitting job and look forward to them taking care of my place again in the future.
