We are an older fit US couple - retired professor and currently online professor - desiring to experience life anywhere with Internet accessibility. We love all animals(with one of us having grown up on a farm). Between the two of us, we have owned such canine breeds as German Shepherd, Irish Setter, Dalmatian, Airedale, Westie, Miniature Schnauzer, Schnoodle, Collie. We have owned numerous feline breeds.
We joined Housecarers in June 2011 and have completed nineteen(four of which were overseas) house sits, plus one completed before joining. That one was not a house sit as commonly thought of, but we rented a furnished home from a professor while she was away on sabbatical and cared for her small dog/garden. It was a great experience and caused us to consider house-sitting now. The house sits we have completed since then have been delights and affirmed our interest in joining. All homeowners have provded us with either written references or telephone numbers and addresses. Our Swedish homeowners visited us in the States.
Both of us have traveled around-the-world and have lived in New Zealand, Thailand, Switzerland, and France. Also, one of us has an undergraduate degree in landscape architecture and both are nature-lovers. We are equally happy walking, biking, kayaking in the quiet countryside, or visiting museums and enjoying the theater and good restaurants.
Our aim is to still your fears while away as we enjoy getting to know new areas of this great world of ours. Your home would be treated as one of our own and your pets cared for with love and understanding.
