I have a ton of experience pet and house sitting worldwide! Ask me anything and we will be honest and true! No question is an un-welcomed one. I absolutely love animals. I take pride in what I do and if you entrust me with your home and pets I will treat them as if they are my own with tender care and strict adhearence to your wishes!
In the last 12 years I have traveled as a volunteer for various organizations in Latin America, and the NE United States which has enabled me to learn Spanish, and gain experience in organic farming, gardening, animal care and sustainable living. I truly believe that slow travel and immersing yourself in "local culture" helps one to grow and learn.
I was living in Nicaragua volunteering at an after school program for poor children, while conducting my freelance audio work on my free days. My volunteer gig was ending and I was looking to head North.
Luckily, I was able to find a house sitting postion on the Yucatan Penninsula in Xcalak, Mexico caring for 2 large Italian Mastiffs, in a remote fishing village on the South Eastern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula. The house was completely off the grid and I was responsible for maintaining and monitoring the following: the solar panel system and batteries, the backup generator, the rainwater collection system, in ground pool, and garden.
After my house sit in the Yucatan, my house sitting profession took off! I than moved to Central Mexico and have sat pets for over 30 different luxury homes in San Miguel de Allende and NYC. I currently live back inthe Poconos Mountains but I am always willing to travel to a house sit!
Every house sit situation has been different and this has enabled me to gain experience sitting many different pets from big Italian Mastiffs to tiny dogs with special needs, to cats, birds, fish etc. I have experience in pet care, administering medicine to cats and dogs, dog walking, watering plants, keeping the house in good order, maintaining a solar system, keeping the homeowner informed in case of maintenance issues in the house, and provide a secure presence while they are way. I also love to send photos of the pets that I am sitting to their owners while they are away! I would be honored to house/pet sit for you! Attached are many references from some of my previous gigs. I'd love to hear from you!
