Reliable, loving, fun and clean petsitters

We love animals and pet sitting and and have been grateful to get wonderful feedback; including multiple requests to return.

We know how precious fur babies are, so we take great care of them by following the routine they are used to. We carefully take instructions from their owners to make sure we get it right. Our philosophy is that it's your house, your pet, and things should to be done your way.

We are good at adapting to different routines and pets. I have trained a few dogs in my time which helps us adapt quickly, but I think what helps us most is that we genuinely love animals and are excited to get to know them, and want to make sure they are happy.

I work from home, this means we have plenty of time to spend with pets. We like to make sure the pets we look after have ample pats, walks, and get plenty of playtime and grooming :)

We also like to make sure the humans are happy too - when pet sitting, we:

- send updates daily so you can see your pets are happy, loved and well cared for
- ensure your home is clean
- keep your home secure; and
- maintain your garden.

We are both good at taking care of minor mishaps - cuts, burrs between toes, mattered hair etc. Digby has also had expereince nursing animals as they age, so understands the kind of gentle approach required.

We both received police clearances as part of our professional roles, and can provide references.

We would love to hear from you and talk about your needs.

Digby and Slavica are the greatest. On a site full of lovely people where it's hard to choose, they stood out for their sincerity and genuine love of animals. They were easy to communicate with and came around to meet us and our dog, Bruno, well ahead of the house sit. They took great care of the house and left it spotlessly clean and, most importantly, they took great care of our boy, sending us daily pics of him enjoying himself. Digby is very knowledgeable about gardens and left me some ... MORE

Digby and Slavica were doting companions to our two greyhounds and kept us up to date with their goings on. . They are great dog people and also care for your home. I'll use again if it suits us both
VALERIE (Bulleen VIC, Jul 2019 - One week)
Digby and Slavica were wonderful house and petsitters. Our pup was very calm and happy when we returned, and the house was well looked after and tidy. We highly recommend Digby and Slavica.
ANNE (Surrey Hills VIC, Jun 2019 - 1 week 2 days)
Digby and Slavica have house sat for us around 5-6 times over the past 18 months. They are always the first people we ask to check if they are available for our housesit before posting an add on aussiehousitters.com. They are a lovely couple, easy to communicate with and always keep us well updated while away with photos of walks and cuddles with our fur babies. There is always a little surprise when we get home of flowers or fresh baked goods which is just amazing and so thoughtful. We love ... MORE
MELISSA (Elwood VIC, Jun 2019 - 1 week)
We were delighted with the care that Digby & Slavica gave to our home and especially to our two cats. We came home to happy, well cared for and relaxed cats. Our home was clean, tidy and there were welcoming flowers throughout the house. As promised we received messages and photos about how the cats were doing while we were away which reassured us they were fine. We would certainly use Digby & Slavica again and happily recommend them.

We have come home to the happiest animals and family. I can't thank you enough for keeping our loved animals and house safe and sound. The flower arrangements from flowers in our garden were beautiful and have been snapped up to sit in my girls rooms and the chocolate cake and biscuits were enjoyed for morning tea.
JULIE (Prahran East VIC, Dec 2018 - 3 weeks)
Such a lovely couple. My cats and dogs loved them. I know because Digby and Slavica visited when I was home. Hopefully they will return and hang out. YAY
CHRIS (Sunderland bay VIC, Nov 2018 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating Digby and Slavica took great care of our house and pets, sending regular updates and photos to keep us at ease whilst away. We were completely spoilt by scones, flowers and a beautifully clean house when we returned. Thanks D&S
CLAIRE (Woodend VIC, Aug 2018 - 1 week)
Digby and Slavica were lifesavers, they took the task of looking after our babies very seriously - which was immensely appreciated, especially after a not so great experience with other sitters last year (not from this site!). We were able to completely relax on our 3 week holiday knowing the furbabies were in great hands. I cannot thank them enough for this! If you are lucky enough to have Digby and Slavica sit your pets, you will soon find out. We will definitely hope to have them again next ... MORE
BRITT & JAMES (Seaford VIC, Aug 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating Digby and Slavica took great care of our home, plants and most importantly, cat Toby! True cat lovers, we got updates on him all the time and he looked very pleased and chubby upon our return. Thank you!
FARAH (Gardenvale VIC, Jul 2018 - 1 week 2 days)
Digby and Savica were fantastic house sitters, they took great care of our house while we were away and sent us photo updates of the pets which was really great. We felt very comfortable having them in our home and would recommend them to other people looking for reliable, animal loving house sitters!
AMBER (Altona VIC, Jul 2018 - 2 weeks 5 days)
Wonderful sitters who kept in touch with us with photo updates of our beloved hounds while we were away. Recommend them highly and would love to have them look after our home & dogs again some time.
AIRDRIE (Coburg VIC, Jun 2018 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Digby did a great job of looking after our dog, Liza, the house and garden. He provided good timely communication prior to, and during the sit. Liza looked very well cared for on our return. Thank you very much.
ROB (Hampton VIC, Apr 2018)
Digby and Slavica are a lovely couple and were fantastic house sitters. Henry was very spoilt and obviously enjoyed his week with them . The garden was really well looked after and we very much appreciated the thoughts on new additions to the garden. The house was great and it was really lovely to come back to flowers from the garden on the table and beautiful home made scones. We will most definitely be asking them back to look after our home and Henry.
MARY (Eltham VIC, Apr 2018 - 1 week)
No rating Digby and Slavica were great with looking after our two little furbabies while we were away for two weeks over Easter. We had cute little updates from them every day so we felt comforted to know that the doggies were being well looked after and that we didn't have to worry and could just have a wonderful holiday. Thank you Digby and Slavica!
JACQUI (Altona North VIC, Mar 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Digby and Slavica were great house and especially dog sitters. Our "girls" were loved, cuddled and spoilt and I think they missed all the special attention when we got home! We got photo updates daily of the girls having a lovely time on the beach and we even came home to a special treat of home made scones and jam. I'd recommend Digby and Slavica to anyone - our house was clean and tidy and our dogs well cared for. Thanks guys.
GAEL (Torquay VIC, Mar 2018 - 6 days)
No rating I invited Digby and Slavica to house sit and look after my dog and 3 cats with very short notice after my original person cancelled. They arrived at my house and were very keen to house sit and go through all my requirements. I have not done with this before and was unsure but after meeting them, they were very friendly and interacted really well with the pets. While away I received photos and comments regularly. Arriving back the house was clean and tidy with some flowers and a ... MORE
CRAIG (Reservoir VIC, Feb 2018 - 2 weeks 2 days)
I was so happy to have Digby and Slavica look after my little Charli and my home whilst working overseas. I was kept updated with messages and gorgeous photos, and felt reassured that Charli was receiving all the love and attention that she expects! I cannot recommend this lovely couple strongly enough! There is nothing better than being worry-free while you're away from home, and then coming home to a spotless, perfectly maintained home and very happy doggie!! I hope to be able to have Digby ...

RHONDA (Bentleigh VIC, Feb 2018 - 1 week 4 days)
Highly recommend these house sitters!! Digby and Slavica are a warm friendly responsible and caring couple, with plenty of house-sitting and animal care experience and a mature attitude. Our cat was pampered and the house was very clean on our arrival home. They were quiet, respectful and did a great job! Thanks guys!
CATHY (Werribee VIC, Jan 2018 - 1 week 4 days)
A lovely couple to meet and look after our pets and house. It was great to get regular updates and photos from them throughout the stay and always nice to get back to a nice clean house. The pets were nice and relaxed when we got home. We will be having them back to housesit for us.
