Hi, my name is Josie and I am a very experienced house sitter having sat more than 45 houses over the last 13 years.

I am Scottish but have lived in Australia for over 25 years. Being a fit and healthy 66 year old who has recently retired with a longing to come home to Scotland I decided to spend some months here (yes, I am in Scotland right now) house sitting and enjoying the country. I love being here as it does feel like home – I might even move here permanently, though it would be good if it stopped raining!

I am very good with animals and volunteer at a wildlife rescue organisation. I have mainly looked after dogs and cats but also llamas, ducks, hens, sheep, fish, horses, birds.... the list goes on. I like looking after dogs as it means lots of walks and walking without a dog (or two) is just not the same. As you can tell I have had dogs and cats at home most of my life.

My background is a business consultant in Organisational Psychology and I ran my own business for 20 years. I also own my own house so know how important looking after a home is and have experience in doing so. After I retired I moved to an 8 acre property in the country which I maintain and keep as fire proof as possible.

Since retiring I have house sat in America, St Lucia, Norway as well as Scoltand and would love to see more of the world.

While I want to spend time in countries, I don't like being a tourist. I like to live in a place and get to know it – I would rather get to know one place well than visit 10 briefly. I also miss having animals around so house / pet sitting is ideal. I much prefer staying in homes and self-catering rather than in hotels or the like.

I can provide references, am very flexible with dates and look forward to hearing from you.
