We are a couple of retired teachers who would take care of your home & pets as if they were our own--actually better! We love to travel & meet people & experience various cultures. We also love animals but it's difficult to travel the world with pets so we hope to have the chance to help out by taking care of your pets.
We are reliable, conscientious, trustworthy, hardy, self-reliant, flexible, independent, honest.
We grew up in a rural environment, have had various pets over the years & own a home on an acreage so we have experience with gardening, lawn mowing, snow shovelling & blowing, & looking after issues which occur when you are responsible for your own services such as a well & sewer. We consider ourselves very adaptable & able to calmly deal with just about any type of situation.
So far in Canada we have house / pet sat in beautiful homes in Kelowna, BC & in Devon, Edmonton, St Albert & Stony Plain in Alberta. We have also housesat in Mexico twice & in Turkey. These international homes had swimming pools, so we have a total of about seven months of experience with pool maintenance. Every home / pet owner whom we have sat for has asked us to return. You can count on us to care for your home & pets even more conscientiously than we would our own!
Pet / housesitting seems quite perfect for us because it seems we are happy wherever we go, so with housesitting we can just go wherever we are needed or wanted. So we are hoping someone needs us!
