We are a retired couple - financially secure, Covid-safe, non-smoking, and exploring the world through house sitting and our own travels.  Being healthy and fit allows us to take care of a wide range of pets, animals, and properties. Being well-experienced in life and homeownership allows us to make good decisions and keep your home safe and secure. And since we are kind, sincere, and compassionate people, your pets and animals will feel loved and well-treated.    

One of the great joys of house sitting is getting to know and love many different pets. Although we have been life-long dog and cat owners, we currently get our canine and feline fixes from the dogs and cats we house sit. In the past, Jim trained border collies for agility trials and Barbara was a foster mother for kittens. So, whether we are taking your dog(s) for walks or cuddling with your cats, we enjoy it all!

Our backgrounds make us well-suited for housesitting. Jim had a 29-year career at Boeing and is very reliable, handy with tools, and excels at problem-solving. Barbara’s work was in residential building construction (hands-on and project management) and is organized, practical, and cares greatly about homes. We are both conscientious, organized, and practical. Not to mention, tidy and neat.

Since we are long-term homeowners, we appreciate your concerns about the safety, maintenance, and upkeep of your home and property. After the needs of your pets and animals have been taken care of, we would enjoy working in the yard, garden, or on any needed projects around your house. Before we started housesitting, we had house sitters in our home for months at a time. So, we understand the trust, dependability, and communication you are expecting and will receive from us.

We would love to communicate more with you.
