WE ARE BACK...........

Having suffered and survived the last 2 years of Covid etc, we are pleased to say we are ready for some more pet and house sitting, We have missed it and ready for ACTION.............

I am Ken Lea, a retired Project Manager and Busuness Analyst. My partner (for over thirty years), is Lynn Robinson. We are both fit and active and enjoy the outdoor life.

Our children have flown the nest and we are a couple that want to do many different things during our retirement. Pet and house sitting provides us with a facility to travel the world and create friendships.

We enjoy the countryside and natural history. We are also keen conservationists and animal lovers and have both have got a combination of skills that we feel are required for the job as a house sitter.

Between 2012 and 2019 we completed 35  sits in Europe, Ireland and the UK, some of which were repeat sits. In 2015 we completed a sit in Vancouver Island, BC, Canada plus, in 2016, a sit in St. Pete's Beach, Florida

We can offer:-

- maturity

- responsibility

- animal husbandry

- attention to detail

- housekeeping & management

- gardening

- D-I-Y skills.

Both of us have full, clean driving license and are competent on driving on the right hand side of the road. Ken have driven, on numerous times, in Europe on holiday or on house sits.

Ken comes from an agricultural background and has experience in farm stock. Our past pet sitting experience covers all types of dogs, cats, horses, donkeys, pigs, sheep, goats, hens, ducks, turkeys, guinea pigs, hampsters, peafowl etc.

References can be supplied from previous projects. sessions can be arranged to discuss sitting requirements etc

We do not charge for our services and pay all of our travelling and out of pocket expenses. Wherever we are providing our services, we classify the house, it's contents and especially the animals, as our own and give them the respect and care expected.

Ken's other skills include:-

- painting and decorating

- garden maintenance

- general d-I-y/handyman work

If any of the above are required, payment rates can be discussed. 

Can't wait to hear from you
