Trusty Travellers

50, Teacher

49, Airline Manager

I am Ruth, a 51 year old Deputy Principal at a Gold Coast state high school who has been on leave to travel round Australia with my husband. Stuart (49) is Head of Revenue Management with an airline who works from home so has been working part-time online while we travel but will be back to full-time in December and I'm back at school then too.

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 have had the pleasure of doing five house sits looking after dogs, cats, fish and birds through this site and you should be able to see the reviews from these.

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 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. We are currently looking for one long house sit or a series of shorter in northern NSW or southern Queensland.

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.

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
