We are a married, pet-loving couple from Nova Scotia, Canada. I am 61 years old, and Robin is 60. We've been together for almost 40 years.
We drove from Nova Scotia to British Columbia in August and September of We will eventually settle here, but want to explore first, living in various regions before deciding on a permanent location. We did live in Sooke and Victoria 30 years ago and loved it - especially the mild winter and early spring. We've also lived in Prince Rupert and the Okanagan Valley.
We have been homeowners for twenty-two years. I am capable of doing small electrical, plumbing, and other repairs and we can take care of all general house, garden, and yard maintenance - Robin loves flowers and gardening.
We're experienced pet owners and love animals. We've owned several cats and dogs, a horse, 2 goats, and we think chickens are just great. We love walking, hiking, camping - anything to do with the outdoors. We would absolutely take very good care of your pets and give them the exercise and attention they need.
We have little house sitting experience, but, as previous pet and homeowners, understand exactly what you are looking for - we'd want the same. We have taken care of one house and property. The house is located in Giron, Ecuador, the owner from Colorado. He was very happy with us, and will supply you with a reference on request.
Update October 2017: We cared for a rural property in Saanich for4 weeks, including a Chesapeake Bay retriever, an elderly cat, and 4 chickens.
Update: Looked after a house and small dog in Duncan for 2 weeks in November.
Update: Cared for an elderly, blind dog in Victoria for 2 weeks early December.
We're looking forward to connecting with you and caring for your home and pets. You can rely on us!
