I am Chris a freelance graphic designer and animator. I started petsitting in New Zealand 3 years ago and have been on many adventures with many animals all over the globe since then! I have all 5* reviews (on trustedhousitters which I can provide :) ) and always aim to do the best job I can and take care of pets and homes like they were my own. I love getting to know new pets and their individual personalities, spending time bonding and gaining their trust, and of course a good cuddle and movie with pets in the evening. I enjoy spending time in new places learning about other cultures and ways of living, and have completed petsits in 5 continents now, making many human and non human friends along the way. I travel with my girlfriend Linda who is from Ecuador and a yoga instructor, also a huge animal lover and great all round calming person. We both have a passion for taking care of animals and want to one day open an animal shelter to help animals who are not as well off in poor communities.
I would say we are clean and tidy, respectful of people and pets needs, self sufficient, adventurous and a big animal lovers.
We get our work on a remote basis so can always be at home to look after pets during the day and keep them company as much as needed if that is your wish!
Lonely Planet also did an interview about me and my Petsitting adventures. You can read it here - travelling-working-as-a-pet-sitter
