Trusty Travellers

51, Teacher

50, Airline Manager

I am Ruth, a former Deputy Principal at a Gold Coast high school who has semi-retired and now teaches online. My husband, Stuart, is Head of Revenue Management with an airline who also works remotely. We started travelling around Australia at the start of 2018 and whilst we have been on the road we have enjoyed undertaking a number of house-sits looking after dogs, cats, fish and birds so feel free to read our reviews.
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. When we are doing house sits we are around all of the time to look after and keep your pets company. 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.

I can't thank Ruth and Stuart enough for looking after our house and 2 cats.We were able to enjoy our holiday knowing that everything was fine.It is such a relief to come home to happy cats ,clean house and pool and even the lawns mowed. We highly recommend Ruth and Stuart as house sitters .

I would firstly like to say a huge thankyou to Ruth and Stuart for helping me out when I really needed it. Secondly I would highly recommend Ruth and Stuart for house/pet sitting. These 2 people have been an absolute godsend for me. I needed a little help with my aunties 8 cats and dog whilst she has been in hospital and they volunteered there time and love for animals to do that. They will look after your furbabies like they are there own. The house was very clean when they left and all ... MORE

Ruth and Stuart were amazing house sitters! Our two Labradors had a great time - they were taken to the dog park for exercise everyday and fed twice a day. They even started to feed them in two serves to try slow them down! The house was well kept and the lawn was even mowed. Communication was great - we would receive constant updates and pictures of the dogs. I could not recommend this couple enough!

Ruth and Stuart looked after our pets and our home like they were their own. Our dogs and cat were happy and contented when we arrived home. The house was lovely and clean. They are very friendly and kind people and we would not hesitate to recommend them.

Ruth and Stewart were fantastic! I came home to a very happy puppy. They even had him trained to sit and wait for his dinner, instead of his normal rushing in and scoffing. My house was left immaculate and they were so thoughtful as they remade my bed, which was nice to come home to after a flight and being tired. Couldn't recommend them any more highly. If you are looking for someone you can trust, then these two are the perfect people to let sit your pets. Thanks Ruth and Stewart. If you were ... MORE

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.
