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. 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!
Hi... I am a single, non-smoking full-time employed (37 years old). Looking for an alternative to renting, this seems a great way to conserve my funds and save to buy my own home for future security. I love the company of animals, enjoy gardening, and am an extremely efficient, clean and organised person.I have experience as house sitters and have excellent references. Why not contact me so we can meet and you can decide for yourself?
Hi I am Alicia, I'm a 37 year old professional who works in finance in the CBD, I love animals and have previously owned dogs (various Labrador X's), tropical fish and have shared houses with lizards, cats and a variety of birds (chickens, canaries, love birds and a cockatiel). I also have experience looking after marine fish, rabbits and guinea pigs. I do draw the line at snakes and spiders though (sorry I'm not a fan). I am a nonsmoker. I am a born and breed Melbourne girl and have recently sold my home. Whilst I save for a new purchase (still some time away) I am looking to house sit on a more permanent basis after having housesat for a few friends whilst they have been away.I have previously looked after many people's dogs whilst on holidays. I have experience with administering numerous medication to animals. My old Labrador before she passed away was on injections, creams and twice daily tablets. I also have been to dog training with all of my previous dogs and am happy to help out if your pets have minor behavioural issues. Happy for pets to sleep either inside with me or outside as required by you.I will live in and keep your home as I would my own, I prefer to always meet you and your pets in person prior to a sit and will ask you lots of questions to ensure your pets (garden and home) are looked after, not only to my high standards, but more importantly to yours. I will seek to understand your expectations on updates and contact whilst you are away, any health issues your pets may have had or currently have and anything I need to know about your home. I love to cook and you will often find some small supplies in your fridge upon your return home. I work full time however I am able to take your pets for up to twice daily walks with ease. Whilst I have the ability to work from home at times, if you need someone to be at home with your pet all day every day, then, unfortunately, I am not the right sitter for you.I have previously used housesitters to care for my dog (who has since passed away) and so understand the potential nervousness you can feel when leaving your home and pets in the hands of a stranger. I would love to be considered for your next housesit and look forward to speaking to you.

My wife and I own and operate an online business, established almost 4 years ago. The majority of our customers are world wide. As a result, we are permanent travelers, but need to be in Australia to visit with grand kids and assorted family! We are animal lovers, and recently gave away 2 fabulous cats to a good home. (Normally our sons look after the cats, but they all recently left the family home in New Zealand!) We now have good experience in house sitting, we are very responsible people, and would treat your home as we would ours, and the animals and garden would be treated the same. My wife is extremely house proud, and loves to potter about in the garden . She is an extremely organised person and she looks after the house and me very well!Kays Dad was in the 2000 Queens Honors List in New Zealand (R. J.

We are non smokers. Broadband or good internet access would be needed.
I have moved back to Canberra after 15 years in Geraldton, Western Australia. I may only be here for a year so I have left my husband, recently renovated house and, most importantly, Salsa, my border collie cross, back there. House sitting allows me to get to know different parts of Canberra. I have a car but enjoy taking the bus to work in Civic. An extra bonus is looking after pets, particularly dogs that like to take me on walks. My own dog does agility and my husband and I are active in the local club so I am used to dogs of all types and personalities. I'm responsible, friendly and rarely go out in the evenings or weekends.

SYDNEY METRO AREALong term house & pet sitters, this Aussie couple can be relied on to care for pets (dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs), maintain pools (solar, chlorine, salt), manicured lawns, rambling yards, hedges, edges & potted plants. Seasoned sitters, we have references from all homeowners for whom we have provided house & pet sitting services since commencing house sitting in 2011.

Hello! My name is Sam and I look forward to taking care of your home soon like it was my own! Why would I be perfect for your house? Two of my best friends have pets who I regularly look after and adore when I visit. I am also a keen traveller and love the idea of giving someone else peace of mind that their furry friends are being looked after while they are having the time of their lives. Why pick me? I'm a single, non-smoking, tidy 33 year old female who loves to run, go for big walks and loves music. My professional experience is as a marketer, I do a little volunteering every now and again, love looking out for the environment. I am an avid traveller who is also trying to take up writing on the side. Friends would say I am responsible, reliable, loyal and respectful. I would say I agree! My experienceI have house sitted for friends and family in the past, this is my first time using a site online to organise it however. While I didn't grow up with my own pets, my dad and grandparents had dogs and cats who I often cared for, played with and cuddled. My best friend who lives in Port Melbourne has grown up with dogs and cats so I always have my own life line if needed. Her, along with another friend both have dogs that I love to visit and look after when in town. I'm active enough going for walks is not a problem and I love to read and research so I'm typically curled up somewhere ready for a friend to curl up on my lap. You give me instructions and I'll follow them to the letter. As I'll be house sitting on my own I'll look forward to company if there are pets to look after alongside and plants, veggie gardens or general upkeep to do. Why am I looking to house sit?I have just moved to Melbourne from Sydney and want to figure out the best area to live, so thought house sitting would the best way to preview suburbs and a get a feel for different areas. In the last five years I have visited Melbourne regularly for work and my best friend lives here so I know the city well and look forward to exploring it more as a local. Being in a new city, while I build up my network, it would be nice to be coming home to a pet for a bit of companionship! I look forward to hearing from you!P.s. My furry mates in my profile pictures are Billie and Penny, those who I regularly dog sit for and love to play with!

I keep my mojo by walking, mountain biking and practicing yoga. For as long as I can remember my family have always been animal lovers,owning birds, fish, chooks and dogs.

We are a young working couple that met at University 6 years ago, and have been working in London since we left education and started working life. Nicola is a happy and kindhearted individual working as an account manager at Oracle in London. Before that she worked as a cleaner and office manger so is well equipped to take care of any home. She has grown up with dogs and loves taking care of her home, animals and her family. Jay Jay is a hard working, loving individual that loves nature, animals and his family. He has grown up with both cats and dogs and is experienced looking after plants and gardens - from previous work experience. We are looking to move to Australia permanently and want to get a good feel for how other happy-home-owners do things.Nicola:"I've grown up around animals, dogs in particular, and believe that the key to a happy house hold and happy pet is to treat them as you'd like to be treated. It really is hard to leave your beloved pets in the hands of others, but our promise is to treat them as our own and look after your home as though it were ours. We are a very positive, caring couple and spend most of our weekends thinking about where the dogs would like to be taken this time rather than getting the food shop done." References on request if needed.Thank you for reading, feel free to message with any questions - we are excited to share this experience with you.
Hi,I'm 56, currently single, non-smoking, quiet professional living in Kensington and working in South Melbourne. I just rented out my home and I'm looking to house sit for a short period, as this would allow me more time to find a new place without being rushed. My preference is to house sit in a low maintenance home in the inner suburbs of Melbourne and would love to care for a pet / pets. I'm very experienced with caring for high maintenance cats, as I owned a (Persian) cat Hugo, who sadly passed away 2 years ago at the age of 15. I'm less experienced with dogs, as I've never owned one and only ever looked after a house once before which was home to a small Jack Russell. I've lived in my own home for more than more than 30 years, but have had house sitters look after my house and Hugo on quite a few occasions, so I know what's required. I am a responsible, reliable and considerate person, and would take excellent care of your property and pets. At this stage, I am available from 21st May 2017 to 15th July.Slav.
