  • QLD, VIC

Hi, I'm Dan. I'm a 35 year old honest, reliable, homebody who loves dogs.

I began house sitting and dog minding four years ago, when I looked after a beautiful labrador for two months while her owners were overseas. After a few years of house sitting occasionally, I began doing this full time in August 2016 and am loving being able to spend time with some fun dogs and having the freedom to live a more relaxed, healthy lifestyle.

I'm experienced with a range of small to large breeds - from Chihuahuas to Great Danes - through my house sitting and volunteering at the RSPCA kennels. I will happily give your dog plenty of love and attention - I love going for long walks, playing games like tug-of-war, giving lots of pats, snuggling on the couch and I don't mind having dogs sleep on my bed if that's what they're used to.

I'm mature, clean and tidy, and am a non-smoker. I'm not much of a party animal, and prefer quiet nights at home catching up on my favourite TV shows or working on my laptop.

I'm able to provide a police check and references from previous house sits. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions, I'm happy to answer them!

  • NSW

My preferred housesits are in the Hills area, Blacktown area, Penrith area and Richmond area.

I am a reliable, mature young lady. I am a non-smoker.

I am a primary school teacher living with a noisy family so I use housesitting as an opportunity to have some space and quiet.

I am also interested in buying a house in the future so I find housesitting a fantastic opportunity to get to know the neighbourhoods and functions of different houses.

I enjoy animals, and live a very tidy, active lifestyle.

I also work as a casual employee at a leisure centre.

I am interested in ensuring people have peace of mind that their house and animals are looked after whilst they are away. I have multiple house sitting experiences over the last 5 years and am called upon regularly for future housesits by previous clients.

My partner joins me for house sits. He is 24, currently working as Lifeguard Team Leader and is working towards a career in musical theatre. He was a part of the Mary Poppins production at Riverside Theatre in 2015 and continues to perform in amateur productions.


  • Melbourne

Experienced sitter looking for long or short term house sits in Melbourne.

Hi there,

My name is Trish, and I'm the ideal choice for caring for your home and pets whilst you are away.

I am a 38 yr old, non-smoking female who is responsible, attentive and honest.

I spent most of my twenties and early thirties travelling the world. I see house-sitting as a great solution for seeing Australia and saving my pennies for my own home.

I have a fair amount of house-sitting experience having looked after and cared for people's homes and pets in Sydney for a year in 2014, with proven references, and also in Auckland in 2017 and in the last year in Melbourne.

A few helpful things to know about me:
- I'm an animal lover and grew up with cats, dogs, pigs and guinea pigs
- I generally work full time Mon-Fri
- I am well-traveled and spent 3.5 years working on luxury super yachts so have a high standard of cleanliness, always leaving the homes I look after in great appearance
- My friends would most likely describe me as diplomatic, loyal, responsible, honest and caring

When you choose me as your sitter, you can rest assured that your home will be well looked after, your plants will continue to flourish and your pets will be loved as if my own.

Don't hesitate to ask me any questions. Please let me know if you would like to chat further and I can call you. I think house sitting is a wonderful idea and I look forward to meeting amazing people and furry friends along the way, and being able to help in whatever way I can.

I have references and police check on file and more endorsements here:

  • ACT, Sydney, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, South Eastern, Central Coast (Qld), Northern QLD, Adelaide, Mid North, South, TAS, VIC, Perth, S. Western

Responsible retired couple available to care for your home, domestic pets and garden.

We are a retired couple (non-smokers) from Brisbane with interests in golf, gardening, photography and genealogy. We enjoy road trips, spending time in one place and leisurely exploring an area and community. Since 2014 we have undertaken a number of house-sitting assignments and have found it a rewarding experience. We are always respectful of someone else’s property and possessions, taking care to maintain the property to a high standard.

We have owned dogs, cats and birds in the past and they were always considered an integral part of our family. We would describe ourselves as “animal lovers” and have experience in the care of domestic animals such as feeding, administering medication, grooming and walking.

We would feel privileged to be given the opportunity to take care of your pets and property.

We would love to care for your place.

Amanda and Josh.

ken & katy

  • Sydney, Central Coast


We are Kenny and Katy!

We have recently moved home from living in Quebec, Canada for the last few years. Kenny is French Canadian and I'm Australian. We decided it was now time to give Australia a go after experiencing the Quebec lifestyle.

I'm originally from the Central Coast and have my whole family still living between Sydney and the Gold Coast, so we are in the middle of deciding exactly where we want to position ourselves for the foreseeable future. Right now we need to be in Sydney but where exactly??? This is where housesitting comes into play.

Kenny is a lineman by trade and has secured himself a job in Sydney as a Rope Access technician (abseiling down skyscrapers - yikes!). After 10 years of working in sales, marketing and events I decided to bite the bullet and go to uni. I'm in my 2nd year of my Bachelor of Communication Design at Billy Blue College of Design in Ultimo and loving it. Aside from Uni, I am a social support worker in my spare time.

House sitting is not new to us as we have stayed in many friends and friends of friends houses in Canada while we were travelling to and from Kenny's work jobs on the road. We've both grown up always had animals at home (in Canada - cats, dogs, birds, chickens & ferrets).

We are mindful of maintaining other areas of your property such as keeping plants alive and veggies gardens lush. We have enormous respect for homeowners property and possessions as we would treat it as our very own.

We are 29 and 31 years old, very relaxed and chilled personalities. We lead physically active and healthy lifestyles - Kenny played ice hockey back home and I love yoga/pilates and we both go to the gym. We are a clean and tidy couple and it would be a pleasure to care of your home and your family animals.

We have references from previous house sits and police checks to show if requested.

Katy and Kenny


  • Canberra, Sydney, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, Hobart, VIC

I am semi retired and would love the opportunity of looking after your pets, home and garden whilst you are away.
I am extremely fit and active for my age, and I am a non-smoker.
I would like to house sit as I enjoy discovering local communities and prefer to avoid hotels and busy resorts. I would rather find a relaxing place to retreat to.
I am a keen gardener and have a genuine love of animals. I have owned a number of cats over the years and my second language is now “CAT”. To be perfectly honest I’m not sure that I owned a cat really, perhaps it should be the other way round. Nevertheless it’s always been enjoyable.

I am highly reliable, considerate & respectful and will take excellent care of your home and pets.
Your home will be kept neat and tidy at all times, inside and out, and will be left in the same condition as you left it.
I would love to house and pet sit for you, and if you require any further information don't hesitate to contact me and I will be only to glad to assist you in any way I can.
Looking forward to hearing from you.


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

I'm a health professional, love to keep fit, and eat well. I love the outdoors and am kind and caring to animals. I also enjoy gardening when the weather is right. My ideal house stay is 30+ days, ideally a few months. I mainly work around St Kilda and South Yarra and happy to drop in to the home throughout the day to check pets and home security. I have lived in St Kilda last 10 years and own my own home but recently separated. Happy to provide references if needed but I think running my own practice and the responsibilities associated with it- is a great indicator that im hard working, reliable, and take pride in doing things well.


  • VIC


My names' Abbey, I'm a 31yo professional who works full time, studies part time and spends the rest of my spare time walking, hiking, at the gym, or finding the best coffee spots in the sunshine that Melbourne has to offer.

I am super clean (a well known fact amongst all my girlfirneds haha) with an impeccable rental hostory too. I have spent many weeks & months over the years housesitting for old colleagues/friends etc.

  • Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

I am a mature responsible person non smoker and animal lover.
I have owned and loved many cats and a dog alll my life.

I would love and care for your fur babies as if they were my own.

I know how important it is to keep your babies in their own home while mums and dads have a holiday

You can be assured I will look after your property and your babies and keep you in touch with how they are while you are away.


  • Sydney, Hunter Valley, Wollongong & Illawarra

My name is Aaron. I'm 46 years old who enjoys a healthy lifestyle, a non smoker & am single. I’m not working at the moment due to a back injury, which means I can be very flexible with my time & the dates you would like your house sat.

Fortunately, this allows me to travel to new cities & towns to experience a different lifestyle & at the same time help other people out, by looking after their beloved pets & home.

In my previous house sit, I cared for a whole host of animals on a hobby farm in Ocean View QLD. They had 4 ducks, 6 cheeky chickens, a cocky rooster, a rampaging bull, cow & a crazy cat; along with a gentle little old wolfhound terrier cross named Maisie & a beautiful German shepherd called 'Rasta'.

While the dogs were very lovable, Rasta demanded special attention. He became very frightened during storms & could be harmful to himself & you, if you weren't careful. He needed to be tied up on a short leash during such times & comforted to calm him down.

I have encountered such problems during my many years of looking after peoples homes, over short & longer periods. I also have a bit of a green thumb & find it relaxing watering the garden each day & enjoy a clean & tidy place.

In my professional career, I've worked in the television industry for over ten years & also as a primary school teacher & more recently as a holiday park caretaker.

I pride myself in being responsible & reliable in my professional & personal life & would look after your home in the same manner that I love & respect my own home.

Upon request, I am able to supply you with a police check & the phone numbers of past employers & people who I have house sat for previously, to help you in assessing my suitability for the role.

I look forward to speaking with you & hopefully we are able to help each other out in the future.

Thank you


  • Central Coast

Hi. My name is Cherie, I am 42 years of age, a non smoker and would love to look after your home and pets! I work as a Property Manager in Erina so you could say 'Accommodation is my Business'... I am an extremely responsible and respectful person that treats your home and your pets as if it was my own.
I grew up with animals (mainly dogs/cats and birds) and do love being around them - its that unconditional love a pet brings to a home/family!
I started house/pet sitting when I relocated from Sydney early 2017 - initially for 6 months but have loved it so much that I'm still doing it nearly 2 years later!
I can provide you with regular updates, pictures etc of your pets and property while away, I am also happy to liaise with any contractors if you have work that is being carried out while away.
If you have any other further questions or queries then please do not hesitate to contact me.


  • Bris. S W suburbs, Bris. Southern suburbs, Bris. Western suburbs

Hi There,
My name is Anthony Mark Parsonage. I have lived in Brisbane my whole life and I'm currently 53 years of age. I have just graduated from the Australian Catholic University with a degree in Primary School Education. I'm trying to get my first position as a teacher in a catholic school for 2019. At the moment I'm doing casual relief teacher in the local suburbs around Daisy Hill. I have 25 years experience as an Intensive Care Paramedic with the Queensland Ambulance Service. All of my life Ive had a love of all animals. My family and I have had dogs and cats since my childhood. At present my mother and sister have dogs and they asked me to care for them while they are away from home for holidays or professional development. I have lived on the south side of Brisbane and am very aware of the local parks and off-leash areas for dogs that can exercise daily or whatever their exercise regime dictates.
I believe that house sitting with pets would give me a welcome change that I am looking for.
I'm a non-smoker and a non-drinker. I DO NOT have parties. I'm a very clean living person with no personal attachments.
All I'm asking for, is a chance to show that I'm responsible person that has the ability to care for your treasured animals and their safety is my top priority.
Cheers and Best regards,
Anthony Parsonage.

Dear Happy Home Owner,

I'm wondering if you’ve found a house sitter yet? If not, we’d love to throw our hats in the ring.

I’m very confident you’ll be happy with us if you decide to choose us. We are honest and trustworthy and very committed to house sitting really well as we have a passion for looking after pets, so its easy to make sure we do a great job.

I'm a 29 year old female sales professional with a PhD in Physiology. My partner is a 27 year old male lecturing medical students and working on his PhD in anatomy. I have a flexible schedule, regularly working from home, so I’ll be around a lot to care for your home, pets and garden.

We started house-sitting in March 2017 and we are on our eighteenth house-sit and have had nothing but excellent reviews. We have sat dogs, cats, chooks, goldfish and even a hobby farm that included cows and alpaca. We started house sitting as a means to save money for a house deposit and we found we really enjoy it! The owners from each house sit have all been really happy because we treat their homes as though they are our own and I keep in contact with photos and updates about how everything is going and how their beloved pets are doing. They also come home to an absolutely spotless home because we enjoy making sure everything is perfect for their return.

In a nutshell we are:

* Professional couple in late 20, work full-time w flexible schedules.
* Non-smokers and social drinkers only
* Working locally and regularly from home
* We keep to ourselves and we are tidy and organised
* We enjoy having pets as company
* We love pottering around the garden

We are hoping you'll be keen to give us a go. We'd be happy to come and meet you at a time and place that suits you to have a chat. If you’d like to meet us I’ll bring a copy of my portfolio with me with copies of all my references for you to keep.

I very much look forward to hearing from you. You can contact us via this site and I can give you our mobile numbers so I can forward you copies of our excellent references.

Kind Regards,

Rosalind and Casper

  • Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, Rural/Regional NSW, South Eastern, Central, Northern Vic, SE Vic, SW Vic

We looking to secure another housesit from Nov 1st onwards. All offers will be considered, as dates could be flexible.
We love animals and enjoy gardening.
We are experienced cleaners who know how to take pride in your home and treat with utmost respect and care with kindness also to your animals.

Lisa & Michael

  • Melbourne

Hi, we are Lisa and Michael, a professional couple who are both non-smokers, currently based in West Melbourne.

We have experience in house sitting and can provide references upon request. We have also owned and cared for our own home for over 5 years, and have rented in total of over 3 years without any problems with landlords and real estate agents. Our motto is we will look after and respect your property as if it's our own.

We are looking for house sitting opportunities to fill in time between renting and moving back into our own home which we currently lease out and to enjoy some animal company.

We are both big animal lovers who grew up looking after various pets such as dogs, cats, birds, chickens, horses, sheep etc. We are both experienced in ensuring that your fur babies receive the love, attention and training that they deserve! Having animal companionship is one of the reasons we would like to house sit.

In addition to house sitting and pet sitting experience, we are also experienced animal foster careers. Most recently, we have just finished looking after several guide dogs in training for Seeing Eye Dogs Victoria (all cared for at separate times), so we are comfortable with looking after medium to large-sized dogs. We really enjoyed the companionship and joy dogs bring to our lives through their affectionate yet often clumsy behaviour (even when this means chewing our favourite slippers...).

Lisa also volunteers at the Lort Smith animal hospital and has experience administering medication to animals.

Apart from our work, we enjoy relaxing at home, looking after our plants and keeping a healthy active lifestyle. We would love taking your dogs for walks and keeping your garden or indoor plants lush and healthy.

We are lucky enough to work in jobs where we can start and finish at the times we choose (including working from home occasionally). This means that we are able to look after any urgent appointments or chores in relation to your property or your pets.

In addition to having house sitting references, Lisa has also had a police check and a working with children check completed should they be required.

If you would like to know more about us we are happy to chat through email, Skype or in person. Thank you for reading our profile and we look forward to hearing from you soon :)


  • Geelong, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

Hi there,
We are a small family of three (soon to be 4!) with a beautiful & very placid golden retriever (she’s a total sook).
Our background - Ange is a teacher who currently works online from home delivering a unit for University (BEd) students, Lee is a construction manager working in the Geelong/Surf coast region.
Our son has just turned 2yo & we are expecting a little girl early April 2019. We are just about to undertake major renovations on our house in Geelong West (great timing we know!) & are looking at housesitting as a possible option to help us survive the 4-5 months it may take till completion.
As parents we understand having children & a dog in tow can be a little daunting for someone looking to let their house but please be assured both Lee & I have high expectations of our little one & pup & the care & respect they take of their living environment. Both are beautifully kind & exceptionally well behaved. We are very clean, tidy people and can assure you your house would be returned to you in the same neat and tidy condition you left it in.
We LOVE animals and have had pets all our lives. Our golden retriever gets on well with other dogs & animals & is very gentle & loyal (she very rarely leaves our side). Our son has also learnt to respect animals and is extremely gentle. (We also keep a very close eye on him around animals which just helps to ensure everyone is kept happy).
Having just planted a front garden of our own, we also understand the importance of ensuring this is well looked after through watering, weeding and mowing. We are also looking forward to getting chickens of our own once our renovations are complete!
We’d love to chat with you further ??
Ange & Lee

  • Adelaide

We are both trustworthy, responsible, non smokers and employed full time as a maintenance officer and school teacher. We are looking to house sit whilst our new home is being built. Coming from the country originally we have been surrounded by a variety of animals throughout our lives. We are both animal lovers and until recently have had our own pets which have played an important part in our lives.
We really enjoy the outdoors and in particular, gardening, walking and spending time with our family. We would love the opportunity to care for and maintain your home as we would our own, and to give your pets the loving attention they deserve so that they will feel comfortable and safe in your absence.
We can supply sitting, personal and /or professional references should you require. We are available for any length of time.


  • Sydney, Far West

I am a healthcare professional (doctor) with many years of experience caring for animals. I am an energetic hard worker and house proud. I am also a homebody that enjoys nothing more than coming home at the end of the day and spending time with animals. I also enjoy keeping fit, reading, and enjoying the simple things in life!
I own my own house near Tamworth which is currently rented out, and so I know the importance of looking after a home! I am very particular about cleanliness, safety and general upkeep of the home such as maintaining any gardens, collecting mail regularly. I am totally comfortable around all animals and am more than happy to take them for as many daily walks as required and to have them sleep on my bed at night if need be! I am a non-smoker who likes to keep fit and active. I have all of my necessary checks such as Police Checks and Working with Children Check. I have my First Aid Certificate as well as have experience Vet nursing. To sum me up - I'm a practical person, trustworthy and always give everything that I do 110% - which would include looking after your home and pets whilst being trusted in your absence!
I have done two house sits in Tamworth in 2004. One was for about 2 weeks looking after 1 attention craving cat, and another was looking after a blind, elderly dog, a cat and a few birds for about 2 weeks. I didn't even think about references at the time and so don't' have these unfortunately.
I often look after my brother's house in Penrith that includes looking after their labradors, cat, fish, chooks and rabbit as well as maintaining their gardens and doing their mowing and whipper snipping. I also occasionally mind my parent's farm in the Central West which involves looking after their sheep, alpacas, horses, dogs, cats and gardens.
Dogs-Multiple -too many to count! Border collies, kelpies, cattle dogs, fox terriers, german shephards, labradors. Always had my my own dogs plus plus look after family and friends dogs. Indoor and outdoor dogs. Used to partake in dog training for my own dogs. Comfortable to feed, water, walk, medicate, handle, play with, groom all types of dogs. Extremely careful with dog's safety at all time. I have my own border collie (Bonnie) who lives at my parent's farm in the Central West whilst I finish my medical degree.
Cats-Multiple - always had many cats in my life too. Long-haired, short-haired, indoors, outdoors. Comfortable handling, feeding, watering, medicating, grooming, and giving them the love and attention they demand! Pay particular attention to ensuring their kitty litter trays are always clean!
Fish-looked after family fish for over 30 years - including feeding, cleaning tank etc
Birds-Helped look after family birds for over 30 years - including budgies, cockatoos, cockatiels, parrots, galahs, pigeons, chooks, turkeys, peacocks, ducks, geese
Rabbits-Looked after family rabbits for a few years - mainly feeding and watering
Horses-Lived on 50 acres for about 30 years and had my own horse and looked after family horses at throughout that time. Comfortable with handling, feeding, watering, medicating, grooming, rugging, etc.
Chickens-Had many chickens over 30 years - comfortable to handle ,feed,water, collect eggs, clean housing, medicate/dust, catch and move etc.


  • Melbourne

Hi, I am a 29 year old professional working in Melbourne in Finance. I am extremely clean and house proud and would take great pride in looking after your home as if it were my own. I love animals and have grown up with dogs my whole life. I live an active lifestyle so taking dogs for a walk (or playing with cats etc) would not be an issue for me! I also like to dabble in gardening so that would also be a great advantage for me. I have not done house sitting yet, however I am keen to explore some areas around Melbourne in the hope to see what might suit my next move (and save a bit of money!).
Please get in touch if this suits!


  • Melbourne

Hi, I am Danielle. I am here to keep your pets happy and home beautiful while you travel. I am a healthy, happy and energetic individual, who would love to offer myself as your housesitter.

I am employed full-time working as a Business Development Manager for a local Winery. My role allows me plenty of flexibility with my work hours and work mostly from home and on the road looking after CBD customers so I can be there to feed and love your pets and give them all the care and attention they'll need while they are missing you.

I love all animals, especially dogs and cats and for most of my life have cared for dogs, cats, birds, fish and rabbits throughout the years. I am taking this opportunity to offer myself as a housesitter to assist you to enjoy your holidays, worry free, while your babies (pets) are safe and secure and free of kennels as this is not a happy place for them.

Having housesat many properties after a return from overseas in 2014, with the majority of them looking after pets, I found it a great opportunity to enjoy different locations around Melbourne and had some great experiences with some folks. Not only was it a great social and cultural experience but the feeling of being a person who is helping the community by offering a service that not only provides people with the confidence of knowing their pets and home are safe and sounds but also brings back the feeling of "trust in thy neighbour".... and lets not discount the opportunity to look after some very gorgeous animals. To be honest the hardest part of housesitting was leaving the special bonds and relationships I built with these beautiful creatures.

I understand that every household is unique and am happy to do everything your way and keep it exactly as you like it. I have lived in many properties around the inner city suburbs of Melbourne since I was 19 years of age. I am turning to housesitting after ending an extensive lease in the beautiful Fitzroy North as I am looking to eventually purchase a property. I am respectful, mature and very trustworthy and will treat your home and your pets with the love, care and attention you require. I am clean, courteous and pragmatic and can guarantee your abode will be in the utmost perfect condition, as you had left it, for your safe return home. Rest assured that your home and belongings are in safe, secure hands

Here's what some other had to say:

"As soon as I met Danielle I knew she would be the perfect house and dog sitter for our little French Bulldog. We were away for a month and during this time Danielle sent regular updates and pictures of our dog and we were totally at ease knowing she was taking great care of him and giving him lots of love and attention. We came home to our very relaxed, happy dog and the house was absolutely immaculate! I would highly recommend Danielle to anyone who is looking for a genuine, reliable and caring person to look after their pet and house."

SARAH (Parkville VIC, Sep 2018)

"Danielle was the first person we met who had answered our ad and as soon as she left I cancelled the other appointments I'd scheduled. We just knew straight away that this was a person we could trust and feel entirely comfortable leaving behind to care for our pets and home. She is thoughtful and caring and communicated with us whilst we were away to put our mind at ease. We came home to a sparkling clean house, a lovely hand written letter and two very content animals. We could not have hoped for more." JANE (Williamstown VIC, Aug 2018)

Danielle did a tremendous job - not only did we return to a super clean and well maintained house but also to 2 very happy dogs. She was very quick at returning text messages to put our mind at ease while away, walked the dogs every day and also kept our garden looking good. We consider our dogs to be our children and understand that they can be a handful at times but this did not deter Danielle – she provided them all the love and attention that they would ever need, they probably didn’t even miss us! " MICHAEL (Ascot Vale, VIC, Dec 2014)

    Hi Fellow Animal Lovers. Paul and I have been married for 4 years and have 4 adult children between us. I have worked in schools all my life with the littlest ones but have been retired for 1 year now and Paul (who works as a manager in the earthmoving industry) is looking forward to retiring at the start of May this year. We want to remain active and follow our dream of more travel. Paul loves a game of golf and my idea of exercise is nice, long walks. Hoping to have some gorgeous dogs to keep us company on the beach walks, at the dog park, etc. I also love photography and we both do a small amount of personal work on our laptops while relaxing at home so your animals will have lots of time and attention from us and your home will be occupied adding extra security.
    We have always taken our responsibilities very seriously and with house sitting, even more so. We will treat your home with the utmost respect. We will follow the owner's instructions regarding what and how things are to be done and happy for extra duties like watering the garden, putting bins out, collecting mail, mowing the lawn, cleaning the pool, etc.
    We will keep you updated as often or as little as you like and happy to answer all requests for information, photos or just reassurance.
    We have both always been very house proud and now that we have sold up our home and most of our possessions in preparation for a roving retirement, we take great pride in looking after the homes that we rent or house sit.
    Back when I had my own much loved dog, house sitting was not really heard of much. Each time I went on holiday, my precious Minty and I both experienced the trauma of going to the kennels, trying to part ways and then a whole holiday wondering and fretting if he was okay. Paul and I would be thrilled and honoured to help prevent such trauma for other people and their 'babies.' We can bring peace of mind to pet owners (who will enjoy their often much needed break more) by providing a secure, loving and caring atmosphere and, more importantly, a less anxious time for the animals who remain in their familiar surroundings (their own home, bed and environment). We have lots of love and affection to lavish on the fur babies in our care (and the not so furry).
    Although we have only just started our house and pet sitting career, we have experience with what is involved through caring for homes and pets of family and friends and owning our own homes and maintaining same. We are both extremely tidy and clean living, non smokers, mature and responsible. We have always looked after our homes and belongings well and have a great deal of respect for the property of others.
    We have had experience with dogs, fish, guinea pigs and budgies. Not a lot to do with cats but looking forward to gaining some experience as 3 of our 10 confirmed sits (on other sites) have adorable cats to look after as well as some special dogs.
    As well as some references which I can provide on request, I also have a Blue Working with Children Card which consists of regular Police Checks and is valid until 2020.
    We genuinely look forward to hearing from you,
    Leanne and Paul.

    Dianne & Peter

    • Northern Rivers

    Animal lovers, lovers of travel, Peter and I have been living and working in a very remote part of Papua New Guinea for the past 18 months. Our home is in Northern NSW, on the beautiful Clarence River.
    We are returning to Australia at the end of our contract in early December and would like to travel in between future contracts.
    When we moved here to PNG, we had to re-home our 2 beautiful cats, which was one the most difficult things I have ever had to do. We were fortunate in that our good friends, who had also been house sitters for us on and off over the previous 2 years, decided to take them into their home. Our cats are adored by their new owners and have never looked back.
    We are a healthy, friendly and active couple. Both keen golfers and beach lovers. Peter enjoys road and mountain bike cycling, tennis, wake boarding and water skiing, and I enjoy walking, swimming laps, bird watching and gym workouts. We love to snow ski. We love sailing and motor boating.
    Peter is a very capable handyman, and I am passionate about gardening and growing food. We are both non-smokers and keep a very tidy and clean home. We will respect your home and treat it as our own.
    I am a retired School Administration Officer and Peter is a Sugar Technologist, managing Sugar Mills and Refineries.
    We have loved having free ranging chickens for the past 25 years, all with names and our flock has consisted of many beautiful breeds over the years.
    Growing up on a sugar cane farm, Peter has lots of experience with dogs, having had many pets throughout his childhood. Dogs respond to him in a special way.
    Whilst I have not owned a dog, I have taken a big interest in various neighbours’ puppies and dogs, helping their owners by walking them daily, assisting with training and generally enjoying their company and loving their antics. Also providing complete care when their owners are away. I aim to have a dog one day when we settle down again.
    As a teenager, my family had a very large tropical fish tank, which I maintained and cared for the fish. As a mother, I bought a small fish bowl for our children, who were taught to and enjoyed caring for the 4 goldfish, with great success and longevity.
    And of course, we have loved and cared for our two beautiful cats, 14 and 12, who were rehomed. We are fortunate to be able to stay with our friends when we visit Australia and we therefore get to spend treasured time with Milly and Oliver. And I have been known to chat to our cats over video skype ??.
    My previous cat, Nella was found by Peter at a sugar mill at 10 days of age with no mother in sight. I bottle fed her and took her to work with me, until she was independent. She lived a wonderful 17 years with us.
    I have been a wildlife carer with WIRES Australia (Wildlife Information and Rescue Service) in my 20s, prior to having our own children. I cared for possums, birds and a flying fox.
    I love all wildlife and here in PNG have raised orphaned baby birds (peaceful doves, pied bush chats, chestnut breasted mannikins), and rehabilitated injured birds (quail, black kites, barn owls, grass owls) all with successful releases. This has been a highlight of my time here in PNG.
    We have always been resourceful people and living here in a remote region like this, we have felt very comfortable in our ability to adapt to local conditions, traditions and culture.
    We love to travel and have been to China, Japan, Hong Kong x 3, Taiwan x 2, Singapore, Micronesia, Indonesia, USA x 3, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, Swaziland, Kenya, Malawi, Zimbabwe, UK, Greece, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Netherlands and Brazil. Peter has also been to South Korea, Dominican Republic, Hawaii and France.
    We have police checks.
    We would be delighted to look after your home, garden, pool and pets as if they were our own.
    We are flexible with dates and locations and look forward to discussing your requirements.

    Geraldine & Wayne

    • Hunter Valley, North Coast, Brisbane, South Eastern, Central Coast (Qld)

    We are an active retired couple who love animals and travel. We recently lost our 20 year old cat, Elwood and are now wanting to combine petsitting and travel .
    Our cats had health problems and Wayne is experienced in giving injections, giving liquid and tablet medication by mouth, and in monitoring blood sugar levels.
    Over the years we have used petsitters to look after our cats and know exactly what is required. Wayne has also had pet dogs in the past and loves them just as much as cats.
    We are clean, tidy, non-smokers and own our own home. We will take good care of your home and are also happy to look after your garden.
    We have 2 recent pet sitting references for cats and dogs. Wayne has a recent Police Check and I can get one if required.

    Hi our names are Anna and Michael and we have been house sitting for the past three years.

    We are currently exploring a new on-line business venture, whilst doing some casual teaching. This gives us much more time for not only further exploring other passions, but also enjoy giving a generous amount of time to tend to your animal's needs. We take enormous pride in any property we look after.

    Every owner we have assisted has been extremely happy with the standard of their property on their return, so all you have to do is just un-pack and relax!

    We can provide several excellent references, and also have our police clearances.

    Services we provide:
    - Live-in house sitting by mature, trustworthy, non-smoking, professional couple.
    - Pet minding; walking, cleaning, giving medication, and generally giving them good company and a fun experience.
    - Garden maintenance.
    - Keeping in touch, we can even Skype.

    Upon meeting us, we can assure that you will feel confident your home and pets will be looked after with attention and respect.

    We look forward to hearing from you!
