Hello, I am a Personal Trainer (seventeen years). My wife and I are fit, friendly, and very good with animals. We have experience in pet sitting, caretaking, and house sitting.

I am a fiction novelist and retired at the end of December 2020 from P.T.

We finished a long-term position in Tucson, AZ, and are currently in house-sitting and pet-sitting positions from October 25, 2021, to  October 15th, 2023. We are available from that time to the end of the year 2023 and beyond. I have sixteen years of experience in yard maintenance and my wife is an excellent gardener. We would give your pets, home, and property plenty of love.

John and Cindy were an absolute joy to have come and stay. We were blessed to get to know them for a few days prior to our departure, and they're interesting and thoughtful people. 
We received daily updates and were blown away by all the attention our dogs and chickens received. John worked for quite a lot of time sprucing up our yard for a spring cleaning, too. It was an unexpected surprise! I was so glad that they enjoyed staying around our pets for most of the day. Cindy spent lots of time with the chickens and they both kept the house very clean. They came highly recommended and left as great friends! You will be quite fortunate if John and Cindy choose to care for your pets, plants, and home.
