Hi, I am a nonprofit professional, animal lover and shelter voluteer with both dogs and cats, and experienced sitter who can provide references. My husband is a writer who works from home. He's the Cal grad and I am the Stanford grad making our home together. We are long-time members of the Bay Area community - he arrived in the early 70's while I arrived in the early 80's.
Why House sitting?
We have spend most of our life in the SF Bay Area - the last 17 in Bernal Heights in San Framcisco. We are at the end of a short stay in Southern California for family health reasons, and are moving back home to the Bay and seeking time to transition to a permanent residence. We love animals and welcome the opportunity to care for your dog(s) and/or cat(s).
What we bring to the table?
Experience: I have been a house and pet sitter numerous times for someone who lived in the Haight and had two large Bouvier dogs. I took care of the house, bringing in/taking out trash, mail, watering plants, etc.
Trust: You could not find a more reliable couple who will give your pets and home loving care. Rest assured that your place and beloved companions will be in the hands of good people with great problem solving skills so that you can enjoy your time away. Also, we are easy going and so I believe you will simply enjoy working with us. Finally, we are quiet people and so your neighbors would be happy as well!
We would love to have a conversation with you to explore how we might be of service to you. Thank you for considering us.
