Trusty Travellers

50, Teacher

49, Airline Manager

I am Ruth, a 50 year old Deputy Principal at a Gold Coast state high school who has taken leave to travel round Australia with my husband. Stuart (49) is Head of Revenue Management with an airline and works online while we travel. I am also teaching Business and Economics online while on the road.

We both grew up with and have had the pleasure of looking after dogs and cats including Golden Retrievers, Labradors, Spaniels, Border Collies and German Shepherds plus chickens, guinea pigs and a hamster! We have experience of caring for and medicating pets with medical conditions including osteoarthritis in a dog and diabetes in a cat. We are both fit and healthy and love walking so are more than happy to exercise your animals and will give them all of the love and attention they deserve.

We have police checks as they are required for our jobs and can provide these certificates as required. Stuart and I are home owners ourselves and have two properties rented out so know how important it is to have people you can trust in your home.

We are looking for some shorter term house sitting opportunities while we are travelling to get a pet-fix while also allowing us to get some online work done.

We will be travelling in Queensland until the end of 2019.

We can't thank Ruth and Stuart enough for a great house sit. They were able to meet us a few days before the sit to run through everything. It was a pleasure to have them at our home looking after our 2 dogs, 2 cats, bird and fish. They also left the house very clean. A very big thank you for everything.

Ruth and Stuart were excellent house and animal sitters. They communicated well from the start, provided work references as I didn't meet them til the day I left, left my house cleaner than when I left it and looked after my little old dog well. They took great care of my property and pet and are a friendly and communicative couple. I'd highly recommend them.

Ruth and Stuart were the perfect housesitters. We had a wonderful holiday knowing that our pets were being spoilt and our house was well cared for. Thanks Guys
