We arrived in Australia in May 2019 and will be staying for a year with work and holiday visas. Last year, we were in New Zealand house sitting, touring, working seasonally and wwoofing.

We are non-smokers, vegans, and we love all animals, especially dogs! We have enjoyed house/dog sitting for a dozen different families in New Zealand. Our record is looking after 34 animals in one sit!

We met in Austin, Texas, USA in 2016 during a green building volunteer program where we constructed tiny houses for the homeless population and renovated homes for low-income residents in the city. We both have a lot of hiking trail building and hiking trail maintenance work experience, having worked with conservation corps programs in the past.
Dayl has a Bachelor's degree in Sustainable Agriculture & Natural Building while Rand has a dual-major Bachelor's degree in Sociology & Psychology.

We love to live an active life full of the outdoors, recreation, and new experiences. We live in a quiet but adventuresome way, always working to balance a healthy and mindful lifestyle with fun and spontaneity. It has been exciting to escape ordinary American day-to-day society during our travels thus far. We are self-starters who require little supervision and don't mind being left to ourselves. We are a couple of curious and respectful people who love to work and travel together.

We look forward to meeting you!

Dayl & Rand were fantastic with my pets. They cared for farm animals and a needy dog. I was very confident in their ability to look after everything and they didn't disappoint. They are reliable, trustworthy, clean and a polite couple. We would have them back in a flash so highly recommend them to house and pet sit. Thanks for doing such a great pet sit for me.

What a lovely couple, we were 100% satisfied with their commitment to our family of pets and our home on the two occasions they house sat. Trustworthy, genuine and caring would not hesitate to recommend them at all. Enjoy the rest of your time traveling guys, take care x

Dayl and Rand were amazing sitters, we would strongly recommend them to anyone. They are a kind and caring couple who communicated with us well during the sit, even when I was a bit needy about the pets in the beginning. We knew the animals were in good hands and well cared for. We came home to a spotlessly clean house, they even changed and washing the linen on the bed! They went far beyond what we expected. We couldn't have asked for anything more, thank you so much.

Dayl and Rand were wonderful. They looked after my dog and home for a week and I came back to a lovely clean, tidy home and a content, happy dog. The house was just as I'd left it and Lexi didn't seem phased that I'd been gone at all so she must have received lots of love and attention. Thank you both and I hope you enjoy the rest of your travels around NZ.

Dayl and Rand are a super cool travelling couple who were a pleasure to have in house. Always lovely to come home to happy pets and clearly, the animals loved the attention. Would recommend having these lovely folk in your house anytime. Thanks team, glad you enjoyed your stay!

No rating Dayl and Rand are a lovely young couple who are very responsible and independent. Our dogs were well looked after by them and we arrived home to find our house very clean and tidy. I highly recommend them as dogsitters and wish them well in their travels round New Zealand.
