We are married, retired business owners and teachers, willing to house sit and care for your dogs or cats. We have worked hard all of our lives and raised 8 kids and many dogs and cats. We do not smoke, drink, or party. We stay active and are healthy.
By house sitting we can travel more, stay longer, be comfortable and be part of the local community. We enjoy relaxing at home and taking day trips. Taking care of pets can easily fit into our schedule.
Dogs and cats have always been a part of our family. So we have experience with the young and energetic as well as ones who've aged with health issues and medication. We have done house sits with cats, 1 to 3 at a time, indoor and outdoor, needing medication. We have done house sits with dogs,1 to 3 at a time, big ones (Weimaraners, labs, etc) small ones (pugs, Pomeranian, shih tzu,etc), a blind one, needing medication and ear drops, going for walks.
As parents, grandparents and home owners we know how to be creative with challenges, stay positive, be organized and flexible. We also have a lot of common sense.
We love to have fun and laugh, and pets always give us that. Traveling does, too.
We have a lot of experience and knowledge of pet care for dogs and cats. Cleanliness and organization are important to us, so your house will always be as you left it. We love to explore, but are basically "home bodies", so caring for your home and pets as you request will be our pleasure.
Our stay can be one to two weeks. References from previous house sits available upon request.
