I'm a mature semi-retired professor/writer, traveling the world, caring for pets and homes. Recently I’ve completed sits in the US, UK, Ireland, Italy, Bulgaria, and Portugal.


US national police report (required for teaching)
Physically fit and active

I've been sitting for nearly five years, besides having shared my home with pets all of my life. I have cared for small farmsteads with pets, poultry, livestock and horses as well as homes and apartments with dogs, cats, fish and ferrets. I have expertise with nearly every conceivable domesticated animal/pet, including administering medications. I can handle big dogs, and I'm the previous owner of a Kuvasz, who lived a long and wonderful life.
