We are an energetic, adventurous, retired couple who have enjoyed the trusted responsibilities of state park camp hosting over three summers. Next, we are exploring pet & house sitting opportunities. As parents of 5 grown children, looking to get out and about across the USA & Canada, we enjoy hiking, biking, & kayaking, and would love to visit your neck of the woods, care for your home and pets as we do our own, and make fun memories.

We love cats and dogs. (We have 3 cats & 1 dog.) We are calm, laid back & easy-going, esp. with our timid cat. We are vaxxed. Non-smokers. We travel with our very docile, hypoallergenic, 10 yr old Shihpoo. He is a registered & certified therapy dog, who specializes in visiting hospice care centers, and a certified Canine Good Citizen. He was raised from a puppy with our cats and snuggles & sleeps with them. If you have a cat or dog, he would love to meet him/her! (When we travel, one of our daughters watches our cats.)

We began with a cat/house sit in North Carolina. That experience was awesome. From it, we unexpectedly added "chicken care" to our resume :-) . We have also done a dog/cat/house sit in Colorado. And, most recently, we completed a puppy/house sit in Arkansas. And our new Arkansas friend has invited us back to puppy/house sit again this March! :-) We can't wait for our next sitting adventure.

Note: Our dog can be crated to give your pet(s) acclimation time. When pre-visit time allows, we will happily ship an item with his scent on it to introduce him to your fur baby/babies.

If you are looking for a conscientious couple who will care for your pet(s) and home with love and care, please reach out. We would love to hear from you!

“ Absolutely wonderful house sitters! ”

We definitely won the “lottery” in having the lovely couple, “AdventureLovers123”, house- and pet sit for us for 3 weeks while we traveled to SE Asia. Initially hesitant, because we have an elderly, only cat, and AdventureLovers123 being available only as a package deal of three (the couple and their little, well-behaved, certified therapy dog), we were concerned that our shy, elderly diva cat would not be amused to share a home with a dog, of all things. BUT, after some messaging back and forth and a lovely video chat, where we met the couple and their little dog, we were totally swept off our feet by this kind, calm, sweet little fellow and were convinced that our kitty would be fine with the little dog…and she WAS! This couple even mailed us one of the dog’s blankies in advance to get our kitty used to the doggie scent! Brilliant!

AdventureLovers123 were great at communicating plans and updates and sticking to the agreed upon schedule, arriving on time for us to orient them to the house and kitty before we left for our trip. When they arrived, they brought a goody box of typical items from their state! They even agreed to look after our next-door neighbor’s kitty, while the neighbor had a family emergency and needed to be away for a week. Such kind folks!

The house sitters kept our house tidy and our plants taken care of and lovingly cared for our kitty, providing frequent photo updates via WhatsApp. We could travel with peace of mind. And to top it all off, they cooked us a welcome home dinner, inviting the neighbor and a friend, whom we had connected with them as a backup in case of a kitty emergency.

Truly, THESE are the house sitters/pet sitters you’ll want to care for your home while you travel! They are such kind, caring, and delightful folks…and their little doggie is the sweetest. I miss him already! We can’t recommend them enough…and if you have hesitated because you’re not sure about a dog in your space, I can only reassure you, that this little fellow is so calm, sweet, and well-behaved, you will not regret it.
