The Friendly Canuck
Currently available from December 1,2019 to March 15, 2020 in Australia.
I am a mature, responsible, non-smoking, retired Engineer from Canada. I travel to Australia and/or New Zealand each year during the Northern Winter to escape the cold and snow.
I spent the 2018/2019 season housesitting in New Zealand and you can see my references in my profile. Every sit went very well and I had a great time interacting with the many pets.
I understand that while you are away pets need their routine maintained, and not to feel neglected. I am sensitive to this and get a great deal of pleasure from their company and happiness, so put their needs as high priority.
Mowing lawns, tending to the garden and other household chores while keeping you in the loop with how things are going are part of the course. I am also happy to spend extra time with you being trained on anything you feel may be necessary.
I enjoy nature, cycling, walking and generally activities that take me outdoors. I rarely go out in the evenings and I do not have any other commitments other than the house sit that I would be doing, so have plenty of time for pet companionship. I particularly enjoy house sitting locations that have access to water, beaches or lakes. I prefer longer house sitting assignments to minimize travel around the country.
I am also a home owner so I know how to look after a home properly and to care for possessions.
I am house proud and fastidious but your place would also need to be reasonably clean and comfortable for me to be relaxed.
I will not have my own vehicle whilst house sitting, so would need to be located walking distance to shops, services and public transport.
Contact me through the message system on this website or email or by text message.
Hoping to hear from you.
