In 2011 Val and I retired from our employment with Australian Government Public Service in Canberra, Australia. In 2011 we commenced House Sitting and we have been House Sitting continuously from that date. We are an outgoing couple with easy going personalities. We have been married for 47 years, we enjoy travel, photography, walking, movies, book reading. Our house-sit and pet minding experiences have been, and are, an excellent way of meeting people and gaining an appreciation of local communities and cultures.
We enjoy house sitting because of the joy we get from caring for family pets and because of the satisfaction we get from being able to see home-owners come home to be greeted healthy happy pets. We also enjoy being able to provide peace of mind for the home-owner by assuring them that their pets are being well cared for and their home is secure while they are away. We have owned and loved a number of our own cats and dogs. In all cases they were either homeless or unwanted by others. We are supporters of the Royal Society for the Prevention and Cruelty of Animals (RSPCA) and Val was a fund raiser for that organisation.
Our knowledge and experience are achieved from more than 122 house sits which are gained via this site, another , and by invitation to return by satisfied home owners. We have successfully completed house sits in England, Scotland, Wales, France, Ireland, Denmark, Italy, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, and Australia. We endeavour to maintain the routines that your pets are used to and give them the love and affection that you would expect of us. We know the importance of engaging a couple that is honest, reliable, and organised to care for your family pets, home, and belongings. We are non-smokers and we have no criminal record. We have Police checks, personal references, and five-star reviews that are listed on our profile on the . We are respectful of both people and their belongings, and aware of the importance of privacy and discretion, particularly how this pertains to looking after a person's home. We are keen to have you consider us and we look forward to the opportunity to discuss the claims in our profile and also the opportunity to provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that your pets are in the best of care and your home is secure
