We are a Canadian couple enjoying pet and house sits around the globe.
My wife Susan is a retired dental hygienist and I'm a retired executive from the Federal Government of Canada.
We are non-smokers, in great health, with excellent and recent references upon request. (We do not post our references here to protect the privacy of our past hosts).
Due to my work with the federal government, my police check is from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), where I attained the government's highest security level in the course of my work.
We are very responsible and caring people who love pets and take pride in our services.
Comfortable with all power tools and equipment, I am a highly experienced builder and handyman with mechanical, electrical and systems operational experience. My wife is an energetic and fastidious homecarer who has exemplary care and compassion for people and animals. We are able to care for your pets, home and property to the highest standards. Salt water and fresh water pool maintenance is an area that we have substantial experience in.
We hold international driver's licenses for cars and motorcycles. We are both English and French speaking, with a few weeks of Spanish classes as well.
Susan is 53 and I’m 60. We have recently sold our house in Sudbury, Ontario Canada and are now travelling and housesitting full time.
We are extensively travelled, having started off our vacations with hotels and resorts, then moving on to apartment rentals. House sitting has become our favourite way to travel, as it immerses us in communities of culture and people that provide a greater depth of participation. They are also helping us do in-depth research on where we will purchase our next home.
We are financially independent and do not charge for our services.
We would be pleased to hear about your house sitting needs and answer any questions you may have.
In appreciation of your time,
Rick and Susan Millette
