We are retired active seniors, with the highest credentials and skills. Both of us are bondable, and then some. Many years exeperience in cat rescue & care, dog training and care, professional horse care, experience with birds and other small farm animals.
We have owned -- and built -- our own homes, so we can spot a problem if it happens, and know who to call to fix it. We keep a tidy house wherever we stay, but do not offer "maid and butler" duties to the owners as part of our agreement.
We expect some renumeration, but will consider accepting accommodation in trade for our services, as long as all parties are absolutely clear on what is entailed in the agreement, under what conditions we will terminate, and if our basic travel costs are covered. All this may sound fussy, but we like to keep things simple, honest, friendly, and up-front... and because everyone knows when you want the best, you do not get it for free.
