We are a couple from Nova Scotia, Canada. I (Yvonne) am retired after 25 years with government as a property manager/caseworker for social housing programs. My husband (Dave) retired from a 30 year career as a cartographer, also with government.

We enjoy all things outdoors such as hiking, biking, kayaking and golf. We are looking for a house sit that is quiet and comfortable and we would treat your home as if it were our own home.

We enjoy travel, meeting new people and having the chance to explore new communities.

We see house sitting as an opportunity to do all of these. We are also both animal lovers, so pet sitting appeals to us as well.

We had our first house sit in Florida looking after two cats March  2015 and since then have completed 30  wonderful sits from BC to Newfoundland, USA, Australia and England. Next up is 3 sits in the UK and 1 in Ottawa this summer.

We have looked after houses and properties for our friends and family for many years while they have been away. We have also looked after two cats for extended periods this past year (on different occasions), at our house.

We have owned our own homes for 35 years and have had a pool and extensive gardens to care for and maintain. We are both avid gardeners. We have also had one dog (a collie) and 4 cats. We have also had hamsters, fish, frogs and whatever else our sons brought home to be cared for!

We are honest, reliable and trustworthy and would take the responsibility of caring for your house the same as we would care for our own.

We are flexible on location and duration.

Both of us are non smokers, non drinkers and in very good health (great for dogs that love long walks).

I also bring my experience working in property management and coordinating with contractors to resolve issues around appliance repair, plumbing, cleaning, utilities and emergencies. We both have excellent computer skills and would be happy to provide daily or weekly reports of your pet or home.
