Peter and Nancy, married for 40 years and homeowners in Coronado, California, would love to look after your pets and home, and have references from other housesits to give you confidence about our reliability. In fact, at every home we have looked after, we have been asked back for repeated dog/housesits.

Until very recently, we had dogs all our married life (at one time we had five at once - quite a pack!), and will truly lavish your pets with love and attention. We are non-smoking, clean, considerate of neighbors, and will take diligent care of your home and your pets while you enjoy your trip. Having lived with dogs all our lives, been through training classes (including training a Canine Companion) and reading numerous books about dog behavior, we just connect with dogs. We like them and they like us. We have plenty of stamina for walking and exercising high-energy dogs. Cats and dogs love to cuddle next to my husband, which he is quite happy to let them do.

Because Nancy worked at a public school, Coronado School of the Arts (cosasandiego ), part of Coronado High School in the Coronado Unified School District, she has been fingerprinted and background checked, which is mentioned to give you extra peace of mind about our character and reliability. Peter is from New Zealand and we both love to travel internationally and across the US.

We have two grown sons, graduates of MIT and UCLA School of Engineering, both married and gainfully employed. We are happy to go almost anywhere, particularly the Bay Area (peninsula) and Singapore, where our children are currently living.

We have done several housesits and have always been asked back. Owners can tell we have taken excellent care of their furry loved ones. We know that pets get anxious when their owners are away, so we go beyond walking, feeding, and giving medication if needed; we spend time at home with pets, particularly in the evenings. Owners don't get texts from neighbors saying "your dog is barking" (which is what happened to us with petsitters supposedly looking after our own dogs when we had them). We also leave the house clean, sheets and towels washed, everything in place. So owners can enjoy their time away and have peace of mind that they will return to healthy, happy pets and a clean home.

We are happy to FaceTime. We look forward to hearing from you.
