"I would recommend Sarah and Rana to maintain and care for our home and pets. They have cared for mine and my husband’s home with love and detailed attention while we have gone for vacations or had extended time away from our home...They care for our home and abundance of pets with professionalism; but more so, with integrity, love, and meticulousness that we would".
- Eliza and Michael Paulin, Colorado, USA
Hello we’re Rana, Sarah and Roxi and we are the Traveling Companions. We will provide you with the service, security, and peace of mind you can rely on while caring for your beloved pet and home while you’re away. We are originally from the beautiful state of Colorado, but currently reside in Montevideo, Uruguay. We’ve downsized our life to give us the freedom to travel and follow our passions in life.
I left my fifteen year career working in the dental industry to pursue my full time career in illustration and writing. Sarah has left her twenty plus year career in the service industry to pursue her passions in the culinary arts. We are currently collaborating on a cookbook!
Roxi is our mild mannered, well behaved four pound Chihuahua that has been socialized around people and animals since she was a puppy and loves meeting new friends to play with.
Why we want to house sit:
As full time travelers, we love that house and pet sitting allows us to see new parts of the world, explore the culinary delights these new countries have to offer, and coming to know the people and cultures around us. Because we work from home and have an independent source of income, we will be available to maintain the security of your home and offer the companionship your pet needs while you’re away.
Why choose us for your needs:
We are a couple in our early forties, are non-smokers, have no dependants, and have clean police and driving records. We are mature, reliable, clean, honest and excellent communicators and will keep in contact with you as much as you desire!
Our complimentary skills and many previous experiences allows us to take on a variety of challenges and obstacles. We make a great team, working well together and are creative problem solvers. We are adept at handling any difficulties that may arise with maturity, resolve and ingenuity.
We also have basic home maintenance skills so that if something simple needs to be repaired such as a a clogged sink/toilet, etc. we can diagnose and fix these types of small issues without the need for a "handyman" or contractor. We are energy and environmentally conscientious people in order to keep basic living expenses and costs down.
In addition, prior to house sitting we have experience in the customer service and hospitality industry for a combined thirty-five years and we have carried that level of detail, cleanliness, courtesy and respect, to people, their property and pets. Your home will be clean and well cared for. We have all the experience necessary for daily household tasks to ensure your return home is a pleasant one.
As animal lovers, pets have always been a central part of our lives. Having grown up in the mountains of Colorado, Sarah has helped raise horses, chickens, rabbits, ducks, dogs and cats. She always rescued stray and injured animals, nursed them back to health and provided a loving home, either keeping them for herself or finding them a forever home.
I grew up in the city of Denver, CO, and have also had a variety of pets including rats, mice, dogs, cats, chinchillas, and a variety of reptiles. As young adult I would house and pet sit to help save for college and also worked as a Kennel Technician for a well known breeder of champion Welsh Corgis. Cleaning, feeding, grooming, and training for shows were just a few of my responsibilities while employed. I also volunteered at the local animal shelter, cleaning, feeding, walking and offering companionship to the animals there.
Together with our combined experience and our deep love for animals, we make a perfect team qualifying us for your care taking needs.
