We are a healthy and fit, mature (in our 60's) couple with no children.
Colette is originally from California, USA and Philip is from Cardiff, Wales.
We got married in Barbados and have been very happily working together for nearly 30 years.
We are certified dog trainers and pet sitters and for almost 10 years owned and operated our own dog training and pet/house sitting business in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA. During that time we completed over 500 house and pet sitting assignments.
We love all animals!
We are both Red Cross certified in Dog and Cat First Aid and are comfortable administering medications, including subcutaneous injections. We are also comfortable taking care of any pets with 'special needs'.
We have lived and worked in many different places around the world but now live in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico, where we have permanent residency status. Since there are two of us we are very happy to accept overlapping assignments.
We also have extensive experience in hospitality and have managed boutique hotels in Belize, the Bahamas, and Ecuador. We know how to look after your home!
We are native English speakers and also speak Spanish and French. We are non-smokers.
We are self-employed and work online so of course, our schedule is very flexible. Your pets and home are our priority.
We do have a small (6.5 kg.) chihuahua mix who travels with us. She is 7 years old, fully trained, spayed and dog and cat-friendly. She belonged to Colette's mother who passed in 2015 and we could not part with her.
We look forward to the opportunity of taking care of your pets and/or home.
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile.
Colette and Philip
