Retired, experienced, educated, single man, 68 years old can house sit your property and care for your precious pets and plants at short notice.
Just returned from overseas and ready to housesit after 19th June 2018.
My Mission Statement:
1/.To ensure your pets, home, property ,and plants are cared for as if they were my own
2/.To keep a real presence in your home so as to act as a deterrent to theft and burglary
3/.To respect your property and ensure you return to your home as you left it; and in some cases possibly even better.
I have cared for over 30 properties and a wide variety of pets and breeds, both in the city and in the country over many years.
I understand the trauma that pets experience when their owners go away on vacation. I know that pets don't seem to have an understanding of human holidays and may even feel deserted. I do my best to be a suitable surrogate with lots of attention, pats, cuddles, walks, and reassurance.
The advantage of hiring me is that I am basically a home body. I don't go out very much and I very seldom if ever go out at night. So your pets virtually have me on 24 hour notice give or take a few hours when I do food shopping. I am retired now so I happily sit at home. Pets love this and often seem a little disapointed when their usual humans return.
I have excellent references. Here is a sample:
" The dogs loved him and our home was in absolutely beautiful condition upon our return" (Mr&Mrs S, Batehaven, NSW).
I am good with dogs, cats, birds, sheep, cattle, chooks, ducks and most creatures great and small. My horse whispering skills are improving as last year I looked after a number of horses.
I am totally honest, reliable and trustworthy.
I am a Justice of the Peace and in order to attain this position of trust and authority I have been checked out by the Australian Federal Police as well as every state and territory police agency in Australia.
I don't have my own car so I rely on public transport to get to your place and also to get my shopping while you are away.
I am very clean, neat and tidy. I am a non smoker, non drinker and have never taken drugs in my life.
Was a teacher (Health and PE), child care worker, public servant, hospitality manager, and also involved in sales/clerical positions during my working career.
I prefer a nice, warm, very quiet (I'm a light sleeper), comfortable, uncluttered, minimalist room while I am looking after your place. I also would like some cupboard space for my belongings.
Having access to a PC or Wifi access would be handy but not essential.
It would be nice to get a bio on all your pets, with info on their health issues, their food preferences and behavioural tendencies. This makes my job easier and ensures your pet gets optimal care
As a bonus for hiring me as your personal housesitter, you get a Free House-Sitting Report which summarises my time at your house.
I usually also take pictures of your pets and the surrounds which I leave on a usb or later to you.
Sometimes I also do a day-by-day diary or log to let my house-sitting hosts know what transpired on a daily basis.
I am happy to contact you regularly by phone or while you are away if you require this. Sometimes I send video footage of your pets as well.
Please feel free to contact me and ask any questions about my ability to care for your pets, plants and property.
Hope to hear from you soon.
