House-sitting is such a win-win. You get to go away, knowing your home and pets are cared for by someone who loves pets and respects your property, taking care of both as if they were my own. Your pets don't have to go to a scary boarding kennel. They get to stay where they're most comfortable. And I get to try on a new community and see if it's where I might want to relocate to, or further explore, or not. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your home. I would consider it an honor to be selected. I am a 61-yr old widow from Olympia Washington, USA. I have two Bernese Mountain Dogs, and two grown human kids to care for my dogs while I travel. I used to house-sit a lot in my younger days. Then I got busy raising a family. In December I will retire, so I am ready to start a new career in 2018 as a house-sitter. I am most interested in assignments of 2 weeks or more in Europe, Canada, or Latin America. If you need a couple, I can bring one of my adult kids or a friend. If it's a 6-months or longer gig, and you would allow it, I can bring one or two of my dogs to be your dog's playmate. I'm very flexible about options. Just need a comfy bed to cuddle with a pet or two at night. Please help kick-start my new life. I look forward to meeting you and your pets.
