We are two mature aged but very active females (one enjoys long distance cycling having riden across Australia (2011), up the east coast of Australia (2014), the length of New Zealand (2012), from John O Groats to Land's End in the UK (2015), across USA (2016) and from Adelaide to Darwin The other is a keen lawn bowler.
Having owned and bred dogs, cats and horses over the last 40 years, we are currently "pet-free" and love to travel. We have house-sat in New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and the USA. References are available from people in all these countries.
We view house and pet-sitting as a win/win - we love looking after your house and / or your pets and at the same time experience new areas of this fantastic world. You can enjoy your holiday with the knowledge that your pets and property will be looked after as if they were our own!!
We have owned and/or cared for cats and dogs of many breeds and breed combinations!! The list includes Bichons, Staffies, Labradors, Boston Terriers, Boxers, Golden Retrievers, GSP's, Bulldogs (British and French), Pugs, Cavaliers, Dachshunds, Poodles, Spoodles, Moodles and Cavoodles, Beagles, Springer Spaniels, Cocker Spaniels, Maltese, German Shepherds, Pet Shop specials etc.
For the last twenty years we have worked closely with Guide Dogs Queensland in both puppy raising and general boarding roles and had 58 different labrador and golden retriever puppies in our home at various stages of their education.
We are very careful and meticulously tidy, house-proud home-owners ourselves and treat other peoples places and pets as if they were our own.
We have been successful business owners, and are practical "down-to-earth" people. We enjoy gardening and cooking, are computer literate and can turn our hand to most tasks with little fuss.
We are quite flexible with dates etc - please me with any options - who knows what might suit!!
We love traveling and will consider house-sits most places in the world!!!
