If you are reading this profile then I thank yo in advance for considering me for your house sit needs, I will tell you a little about myself.
I am a mature, genuine, and compassionate person with a good sense of humour. I admit to being a chocoholic; but pleased to report I'm house trained, drug free, and nonsmoker.
I struggle with my feeling when I go away that "no one can care for my loved ones like I do". Therefore, I can relate to concerns you have about finding someone "just right".
Hopefully, after reading my profile you will feel at ease and want to know more about me.
I am a working professional and have traveled and worked internationally. I was born in England, but have lived in Canada mostly since age 22. I have no dependants, so am very flexible with my time. My loved ones (animals) are taken care of by someone that I trust when I am away.
My attributes range but I'm old school and go out of my way to ensure that the job is done right. I am dependable, trustworthy, and respectful. My references will confirm this.
My integrity is very important to me, so I ALWAYS keep my promise; and my promise to you is that I will treat your pets and home just as I would my own. I am very intuitive and have recognized health issues with a couple of housesitting positions that would have been devastating if left untreated.
I have experience looking after and/or owning dogs and cats. It is because of my love and respect for animals that I donate to numerous charities and do fundraising events.
I have a pet first aid certificate and am NAPPS National Association of Professional Petsitters) Certified.
I believe respect and trust must be earned through honoring commitments and being reliable over time. I, do not, therefore, assume I have trust or take it for granted once I do have it. Once I have made a commitment, I will honour it. My goal is to ensure that you feel 100% comfortable with the arrangements whilst you are away.
