We are a pysically active retired/semi retired country couple looking to spend some time traveling and exploring both the USA and the world. We both love animals of all kinds. We have experience with dogs, cats, fish, birds, snakes, pet pigs, horses and mules. We are new to housesitting and look forward to our first adventure! We decided to look into house sitting as we thought it would be a great way to satisfy our passion for travel and our love for pets. Our promise to you is that we will honestly show the same care and love for your home and pets as you do, thus giving you peace of mind during your travels.
A bit about us: We live 6 miles back on dirt roads on almost 200 acres deep in the Ozark Mts in Newton County Arkansas. Newton County is the least populated county in the whole state. There is not ONE SINGLE stop light in the whole county! Randy is a semi retired, self employed master cabinet maker/carpenter and all around handy man. I am retired from the IT world and was a foster mom for 20 years. We heat our home with wood and try to leave as small of a footprint as possible while going through the world. We are both vegetarians, for health reasons and for humanitarian reasons. We have a huge organic garden that allows us to grow our own fruits and vegetables. We each have 3 sons, all grown. Our youngest boys are both in college, one at Stanford University in CA majoring in Physics and one in Honors College at Henderson State University in AR majoring in Biology. We live a simple life, enjoying the outdoors, hanging with our dog Xena and our 3 horses, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, gardening, reading, horseback riding, camping and hanging out under the stars. We have done the crowded resort scene, and although we throughly enjoyed it, we prefer a "home away from home" experience. Please don't let our lack of house sitting experience worry you. We have house and pet sat for family & friends only, so we do not have housesitting references from the general public. We are willing to submit to a background/police record check if requested. Although we both jumped through those hoops when we applied for our concealed carry license and of we both came out squeaky clean ;) ;) We are very tidy, well organized and great communicators with both people and animals! We are super flexible as far as location, dates & duration. We are available to house sit as a couple and are also free to single sit if that is what you are looking for.
You can place your trust in us, not only with looking after your home, but with loving and caring for your pets, the same way that you do.
We hope to hear from you!
Sandy & Randy
