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 45 years and we enjoy travel, photography, walking including bush walking, movies, book reading, and bird watching. Our house sit 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 welcome homeowners home to 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 cared for and their home is secure while they are away. In conjunction with this is the romance of doing the above in a country other than our country of origin.

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 is achieved from more than 100 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, italy, Belgium, and Australia. We endeavour to maintain the routine that your pet is used to and give your pets the love and attention 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 and home. We are non smokers and we have no criminal record. We have Police checks and personal references and house sit references available to forward to you.

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.
