My 12 year old son & I are currently pet sitting full-time when we are not overseas traveling. Pet sits in 2019 included:

- Sydney (a Greyhound)
- Seaford (2 Border Collies)
- Botanic Ridge (2 poodles)
- Highett (2 Kelpies & a cat)
- Malvern East (2 dogs & a lizard)
- Mornington (2 Golden Retrievers)
- Seaford (the same Border Collies as May)
- Karingal (2 King Charles Spaniels)
- Mornington (a Hound & a little mix dog)
I need to update my reviews, but any of the families above would be very happy to be a reference for us.
Overview of us:
For the last 7 years my 12 year old son and I have been living full-time on the road, traveling Australia in our Toyota HiAce Campervan. Over the last 3 years we have focused on international travel, and house sitting in VIC or NSW between our trips.
We both love animals, and living on the road & traveling overseas, we miss out on having pets, so you can be sure your pets will receive a lot of love, especially from my son. As we home educate (we are worldschoolers), we will be home each day, so your animals will be very well cared for, and receive a lot of attention.
We are both naturally neat & tidy people (even my son!), and I can assure you that your house will be well looked after & maintained while you are away, including your garden if you have one.
We can come to meet you any time, and you can see if we're a fit.
Thank you for considering us,
Alice and Satria.

Review from Anna Foley, for this pet sit:
"Alice looked after our two black cats and Rhodesian ridgeback - animals loved her and satria. I felt the animal were very happy when we returned. I could tell they had been loved in a beautiful and respectful way."

Review from Eka Eiff for this dog sit:
"Alice & Satria are totally trustworthy, ultra clean and quiet animal lovers. Your dog will have the best company for the days you are away and your house will be meticulous when you come back. They couldn't be in better hands. Our dogs are still so happy to see Alice & Satria every time they come back."

For those with horses, we lived on a friend's farm in Main Arm, NSW for 3 months in 2017, and pet sit a couple of times a year there, looking after 4 horses, chooks, geese, a cat, & 2 dogs. This owner would also be very happy to give a reference.
