Early 30's professional and I love animals.

I am a respectful, considerate and trustworthy house and pet sitter with extensive experience.

I live a healthy conscious lifestyle (Non-smoker and vegetarian).

Understanding that pets can experience stress when their owners are away I will ensure that they receive all the care and affection necessary to make them relaxed and comfortable.

Hello there!

I am a mature, mid 30s professional who would just love to care for your fur babies!

I have been house sitting for over a year within my local community and love getting to hang out with the animals - which is why I'm now trying to make it a much more regular thing. Everyone I have sat for has been very happy with their experience and I have become their regular go to sitter. I have even made friends with a few!

I grew up with cats and even had rabbits for a few years. I love looking after these and dogs too, big or small, I can usually handle them all. So long as dogs are fairly well behaved on the lead I can handle most. I have looked after terriers, beagles, and an America Bulldog so far and have had no problems.

I will gladly walk your dog daily! I also love giving cats and dogs a good brush and watching them get blissed out by this. I love cuddles with them and will happily let them sleep with me on the bed if they're allowed. I love when cats curl up purring in my lap - nothing sweeter than this I'm sure!

I work full time in community health so if your pet has significant care needs, I may not be the best option, but I have certainly looked after special needs pets before with medication regimes and have had no problems with this. I may occasionally have a late night due to the nature of my work but this also means I start later in the day so will be able to walk etc earlier in the day. Working in this industry means I also have a Working With Childrens Check and all the checks and clearances this requires.

I'm neat and tidy around the house and will always try to leave the house as clean as I found it - if not better. I'm pretty quiet so I will spend lots of time cuddling your pets and will send you regular updates of our time together. I love getting out for a walk or a run and so will have no problems in regular walks for dogs - I'll even check the temperature of the pavement to make sure it's not too hot in the warmer months!

I can supply references on request, just let me know and I have a number of people who will be happy to oblige.

Please get in touch, I would love to arrange a time to meet you and your fur babies - gotta make sure I pass the sniff test first!

Cheers,
Naomi

Julia


  • Melbourne

Hello! My name is Julia. I'd love to give you peace of mind by looking after your home and animal babies while you're away!

I'm a non-smoking, single, 27 year old female. I have just returned from India after three months of training to be a meditation teacher. Currently working as a nanny but hope to start teaching as soon as possible. Both these positions allow me to be quite flexible which means plenty of time for cuddling your pets and giving them all the care they need! I'm a very clean and tidy person who would treat your home and pets as if they were my own. I grew up in the country surrounded by various pets (have been living in Melbourne for the past 6 years) so love animals and am very comfortable taking care of them and any plants you may have.

Happy to answer any other questions you may have and provide references. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Danielle


  • 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)

    • Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, Rural/Regional NSW

    I'm a school teacher in Sydney NSW who is always looking for somewhere new to be when the school holidays come around. I love the country lifestyle and would love to house sit in a few different areas to experience many towns to see what they offer. One day I'd like my own little property with all sorts of animals but at this stage my experience with pets is mainly with dogs. Last year I traveled Australia with two old kelpies and we had a ball but due to ill health those little life partners are in doggy heaven now. I just recently helped a friend pick up two new blue cattle dogs and was there to help with the birth of a litter of 8 new puppies. I have kept one of these pups and so where possible would like to bring Douglas along too...!? I am known to spoil dogs with lots of walk, cuddles, brushing and a raw chicken wing every now and then! I'm a quick learner and not afraid to get my hands dirty so I'm sure I'd be fine with farm animals as long as I was given instructions on what to do! Ive spent a lot of time in the past as a nanny and baby-house-dog sitter in the city. I've taught newborn to 12 year old children for the past 22 years and run an approved child care facility providing before and after school care and vacation care so I have official police checks. I love the outdoors, rural landscapes, gardening, cooking, reading, relaxing, meditation, music and am super tidy. I like my space to be neat and my things all in one area so I don't need a lot of living space! I would love to help you out whilst you are on holiday and experience where and how you live so I can make some decisions about where I might end up in the future.

    Richard & Caroline


    • Lower Hunter Valley

    We are a retired couple, Richard and Caroline, homeowners, non smokers. Richard is a former farmer and Caroline ex
    Royal Navy in the communications branch.
    We completed a couple of housesits earlier this year which we thoroughly enjoyed, and now would very much like to spend some time in Sydney, and also the Aldinga Beach, Mclaren Vale area of South Australia. We are available from September 2012 onwards for a sit of any length. References would be available from both sits earlier this year and also from professional people should they be required.
    Richard is a very keen gardener, and would be happy to do jobs in the garden.
    We both love all animals, and have kept our own dogs always.
    We walk 5 km daily, rain hail or shine, and would look after your pets, and your home as we would our own.

    I am a 28 y/o, currently completing my postgraduate degree in Librarianship at online. I love reading and writing stories plus music and film. (I'll be volunteering at MIFF this year). I love animals (pets at my childhood home especially - my dog Batman).

    Graham


    • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, VIC

    Hi there, I'm a semi retired 50 something male (non smoker) who looks after people's pets and homes. I have had many happy clients, including lots of dogs and cats and horses and cows (see pics); I'm sure their owners are happy too.

    I have many references from pet owners who you can speak to; including police personnel, doctors and business owners, so you can check my bona fides.

    I have much rural experience and I'm rather handy with tractors, diggers, ride on lawn mowers, chainsaws and the like. Homes in my care have varied from farms to cute cottages to executive palaces and high security homes.

    My preferences are northern rivers of NSW / sthn Queensland and the greater Sydney area, and now, Melbourne. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks :)

    • 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.

    Ann & Jim


    • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Mid North, Spencer Gulf, SW Vic, S.E & Central, S. Western

    Hello, my name is Ann. My husband Jim & I have been married for 52 years & have two daughters both of whom are married. We were indeed fortunate to have been very involved in the lives of our grandchildren who are now 22, 19 & 18 years.
    Jim grew up on a dairy farm which we purchased from his parents a few years after we married. This was an ideal environment in which to rear our daughters - cows, calves, horses, dogs(we bred Labradors for a time) & cats.
    With his farming background Jim is very capable of administering medications & injections to animals which he has been required to do on a number of house sits.
    While living on the farm I was employed as a Teacher Librarian & then as a Public Librarian, positions I feel I contributed well to & thoroughly enjoyed.
    When we sold the farm we moved into retail & ran our bookshop for 18 years.
    Over the years Jim has been heavily involved in sport, particularly Australian Rules Football. With his playing days over he held a number of responsible positions including coaching, Committee Member, Club President & League President, all of which he did very well with integrity & reliability.
    In 2013 Jim was honoured to be inducted into the inaugural Hampden Football League Hall of Fame in recognition of his commitment to the league. In 2016 he was extremely proud to be named a HFL Legend.
    Jim was also a Committee Member of the Warrnambool Racing Club for five years which allowed him to follow his interest in horse racing.
    On retiring I volunteered at Lyndoch Living a local aged care facility one day a week which I just loved doing. We took some residents in wheelchairs or with walkers to a nearby café for morning tea & then for various activities until lunchtime. In the afternoon I organized trivia sessions which would usually last for two hours or more. The residents were delightful & we had lots of fun & many laughs.
    From 2013 -2016 Jim drove a wheelchair van transporting people with physical and/or intellectual impairments. He enjoyed this immensely & was valued highly by both the clients & the staff of the various facilities.
    After selling our home we were asked to house sit locally which we did for 3 years. When this home, on 3/4 acre was sold, the owners, agents & purchasers were all extremely pleased with presentation of the property.
    This experience made us keen to continue house sitting in other areas, a decision dear friends who had been sitting for 1 year encouraged us in.
    Since August 2016 Jim & I have done many house sits (30 in fact) enabling us to not only explore the histories & hinterlands of towns & cities, but to meet many lovely people & their gorgeous pets.
    Regards
    Ann

    • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. Upper N Shore

    Hello! My name is Lara-May and I am here to help you. I am a single, responsible, and reliable 50 year old lady available to look after your home and pets whilst you go away.

    I will look after your home the way you would. I am a homeowner myself in New Zealand and I do understand how important it is to you that your home is looked after with great care. I have experience house sitting over the years. Currently I am in Queenscliff. I was delighted that this couple contacted me to come back for a longer term this year (7 weeks).

    I have chosen to do house sitting because I love to explore, and I thought, what a lovely way to get to know Sydney. I have taken short assignment work that enables me to fulfil my love of volunteer work at the Sydney Heritage Fleet, whilst I decide where in Sydney I would like to live and work.

    I enjoy gardening, and am an extremely efficient, clean and organised person. Most of all I love peace and quiet and my own company. I love photography and have a couple of books that need reading.

    I have grown up with pets. My cats Puss and Kitty lived until 20 years old and were rather spoilt. I love playing and cuddling our fur babies, and be rest assured, yours would be treated lovingly as if my own.

    I am available for any length of house sitting term and can provide both personal and professional references, as well as a police clearance. I will take excellent care of your property. I am available from July 9th, 2019.

    Please call me at any time to discuss your needs.

    Peter & Elaine


    • Adelaide

    Hello to all homeowners
    I am Elaine and my husband is Peter. We are currently home owners living in the Mary Valley, which is situated in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland,QLD. We are a senior couple, non smokers, and have healthy living habits. We have a background in housesits during the years 2002 and 2006. We appreciate the peace of mind homeowners have knowing their pets are well loved and cared for, and their homes are secure in our care. We are looking to housesit in Adelaide for part of 2019.
    We love to exercise our dogs everyday and any others we have in our care while housesitting. As homeowners, and pet lovers, we appreciate that it is not always possible to take pets when travelling for work or when taking holidays.
    A bit about us.
    We have two house trained 7 year old Maltese/cross rescue dogs, William and Harry, and both dogs travel with us everywhere possible. Before settling in the Mary Valley, we lived in Glenalta in the Adelaide hills. We both worked for 20 odd years at the Dept. of Transport.
    An opportuntity to realise a dream of living and working in Qld arose, so we travelled to Qld housesitting along the way. During our previous housesits we have looked after and loved various breeds of dogs, sheep, horses, lovebirds, budgies and goldfish.
    While living in QLD we have owned and operated a successful 10 room B&B Motel, and then a Coffee bar. My husband Peter is retired and I am currently fulfilling a long held dream of obtaining a degree studying as a online flex student at a Qld University.
    We are happy to chat with you via any of the social media apps such as Skype, What’s App, Messenger or FaceTime.
    We can provide personal character references and other information on request.

    • ACT, NSW, Alice Springs, Darwin, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

    Active, healthy non smoking couple - social drinkers only - aged 68. Self employed prior to retiring with a background in family farming followed by tourism when we owned and ran holiday accommodation for ten years where cleanliness was of prime importance. Our business consisted of 10 cottages and 3 acres of grounds and garden which we maintained ourselves.

    Wide interests including interior decorating, gardening, reading, music, natural history, bush walking, travel, and how life ticks in general! Since retiring, we are keen to see more of our great country and would love to come to your part of the world and would consider it a privilege to care for your home.

    What we offer:
    Lifelong experience with and love of all animals. We have always had a variety of pets as well as caring for the farm animals. Enjoy gardening and happy to care for your garden as well as pets. Experienced in general repairs and maintenance if the necessity arises.
    Having always owned our own home (except for renting for 15 months following the sale of our business and whilst considering our options), we understand the importance of having someone trustworthy and reliable to care for and maintain and care for your home and pets. We have now been house sitting for over 6 years and looked after 50 homes and various animals.

    Happy to provide references and Police clearance.

    • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

    I will not be able to house sit until October.

    I am a recently retired teacher, keen on reading, listening to the ABC, walking, golf and keeping fit and healthy. I maintain a small but prolific veggie garden and enjoy sharing and cooking the produce.
    I have lived on the Mornington Peninsula for almost 40 years and am presently looking to buy a new home in the area so this has opened up the opportunity to house and pet sit.
    I am a friendly and cheerful person, reliable,
    organised and tidy and I would look after your home extremely well as I understand how important this is.
    Dogs have always been an incredibly important part of my life and while I do not have one of my own at the moment, I take my son’s mischievous and energetic daschund on twice daily 40 minute walks and my daughter’s Boston Terriers often come to stay. I have also lived with and loved a range of purring cats from pound pusses to a magnificent Persian and very clever Tonkinese.
    House sitting is an ideal way to explore new and familiar areas, particularly through walking dogs and meeting other dog walkers.
    Personal references can be supplied on request.

    Merril & Rick


    • Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. NW suburbs

    We are a just about retired couple in our early 60’s living in South East Queensland on five acres in our lovely home built, of course, by Rick. Rick is a builder and Merril is an early childhood teacher. We enjoy traveling with our caravan, and have family in Melbourne (a new grandchild) so we would like to house sit occasionally within half an hour or so from Thornbury where they live. We have always had pets (dogs and cats) until the last few years, and we would love to have someone else’s pets to love as our own for a while. We have always lived on acreage with all the mowing and gardening required. We are very house proud and enjoy a reasonably active lifestyle with walking (hiking) and kayaking being our keenest activities at the moment. Merril loves a clean tidy home and Rick can fix just about anything. We would require off street car parking for our Land Cruiser which is quite high (2.4m clearance if under cover).
    We have had house sitters at our own home over the last few years and these have worked out so well that we thought we’d try sitting ourselves.
    At present we would like a house sit for approximately two to four weeks from 14 th June this year.

    • Sydney

    Dear House Owner,

    My name is Claire and I have recently moved back to Sydney three months ago from New Zealand. I am single and in my late thirties. I work as an Executive Assistant to Senior Directors and my office is located on the North Shore.
    I have four years experience doing house sitting jobs in NZ. Mainly for family and friends while they travelled overseas. I love housesitting as it gives me an opportunity to live in different suburbs and get to experience a different part of a city I would not normally go too. I love looking after pets, (dogs and cats). Taking the mail in, watering the plants, keeping the house clean and tidy. I treat each place I have housesit as if it were my own home.
    My lifestyle is mainly working, keeping fit, reading, cooking, catching up with friends, going to shows and movies, and keeping in contact with family and friends back in New Zealand.

    I am also a non-smoker.

    I interested in house sitting jobs on the North Shore, City, Eastern Suburbs, and Inner West.

    I am available to start immediately.

    References available on request.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind Regards

    Hi, I would love to come and look after your lovely home and much loved pets! I have had many dogs in the past and they have all lived to a great age and I miss them dearly. I am a single, mature aged lady not working at the moment so have plenty of time to take your dogs for long walks, play and take great care of your home. I am a healthy non smoker. At present I don't have had a police check done, but this isn't a problem as I am happy to do so if required.

    Hi!
    I am a 53 yo female looking for house sitting as an exciting way to survive while studying (online) full time. I am currently working towards a career/life change, having been previously employed long term in retail management.
    I have owned my own home and rented in the past and have always been a pet lover and keen gardener. My passion for gardening led me to working as a "plant care expert" for for 5 years and even had my own garden design and maintenance business for a few years. I have always kept goldfish or tropical fish and also worked in an aquarium shop for 12 months. My last cat was a Burmese that passed away at the ripe old age of 21. I have also been a dog owner/lover my entire life. I grew up on a hobby farm and possess a natural affinity with most animals. I understand what its like when your pets are family but you still want to travel. I've been there too! I am a non smoking, responsible, human being packed full of common sense! I am conservative by nature and hate waste therefore I wont be wasting your power or water either! I am currently petless and thought "why not house sit?!". Perfect! Not keen on looking after snakes or spiders though. Sorry.

    Hello,

    I am an honest and reliable house sitter and am available for any duration. Ideally seeking something for 1+ weeks and am very much an animal lover. I love dogs and cats and would aim to give them 100% affection - I like to be active and enjoy walking in the mornings and evenings and feel like a local no matter where I am. I feel animals can help you do this too and be part of a community and get you out. I will be working a couple of days a week and doing fitness classes too. I am non smoking and feel I am very reliable when it comes to taking care of a home, I like to keep things clean and tidy and am respectful.

    Hi I'm Kate, a 55 years young woman originally from Sydney, currently living near Kingscliff, close to the Qld border.

    I'm a quiet, clean and tidy, non-smoker, working from home editing, writing and building websites.

    I love house sitting pets, especially as it means they stay happy and healthy at home rather than miserable in expensive boarding kennels. I give them all the exercise, love and company they need as I work from home.

    My recent sits include;
    Currently dog sitting in Bondi for 2 months
    May/Jun '19 2 Labradors in Double Bay for 5 weeks
    April '19 Elderly cat in Darlinghurst for 3 weeks
    Jan/Feb '19 2 puppies in Tamarama for 4 weeks ,
    Dec '18/Jan '191 Wheaton terrier and a Cavoodle in Longueville for 3 weeks
    Aug ’18 and again in November '18. 1 Spoodle + 2 cats in Paddington for 3 weeks

    I have a national police check and am happy to supply references.

    Hi! We are a family of four... myself, husband Anthony, and two girls, ages 7 and 4. We own our home on the north coast of Tasmania in a beautiful beachside community. We like to travel a bit here and there during our girls' school holidays. We have experience caring for animals because we have a fit labrador named Roy and a chicken named Yolky that our eldest hand raised and so she's very tame and thinks she belongs in the house with Roy (they get along great!) But don’t worry, they do not travel with us, we have family who house sits for us. I have heaps of house plants, a large fruit and veggie garden, worm farm, ornamental gardens, and greenhouse. I'm always propagating something. We also have frog and fish ponds. I'm originally from Florida, U.S.A., Anthony is from Tasmania, and we met while backpacking in France! We are all great with animals, gardens, non smokers, and of course, respectful, tidy house guests. We can supply references, police checks, etc. I'm a stay at home mum, and Anthony is a tradesman, who travels for work. We are new to the house sitting sites so I'm pasting a link to our airbnb profile which would give a good indication of the type of guests we are, considering you pay cleaning fees on Airbnb yet every review makes a note of how clean and tidy we are!

    Mandy & Elise


    • Melbourne

    Hi. We are Mandy and Elise, a British Doctor and an Australian working in innovation for Red Cross, both in our 30's. We've been living together for a few years in Melbourne and are great friends. We both grew up with lots of pets (guinea pigs, dogs, rabbits, you name it!) and love all animals. After years of renting and not being able to have any pets of our own we have decided to turn our hats to house sitting - combining our love for looking after animals and also allowing us to save money for house deposits (to eventually fill with all the animals!).

    Mandy works shift work and Elise works 9-5 so there tends to always be at least one person at home to spend time with your furry friends. We love being outdoors - hiking/walks on the beach etc - so are very happy to take your dogs with us! Otherwise, we are both neat and tidy (non-smokers) and equally happy sitting at home with a good book, cooking up a little meal or playing some board games.

    Mandy is also comfortable giving medications, and both of us are happy to spend extra time with those pets who need a little more care or love.

    We love keeping home-owners updated with pictures and little stories about their pets. To see some of our previous furry friends, check out our brand new Facebook page at www.facebook.com/housesitadventures, or search 'Mandy & Elise house-sit adventures' in Facebook.

    So, if you are looking for two people who will love your pet, keep your house clean, keep your plants alive, and be flexible with dates etc. then we would be a great fit!

    Chris & Lyn


    • Central Coast, Port Stephens, North Coast, South Coast

    We are a retired couple who love bushwalking, fishing, our national parks, beaches and coastal headlands. We are clean and tidy and respectful of other people's property, respect the neighbour's right to privacy, peace and quiet, and love pottering around our garden, vegi patch and orchid greenhouse. Non smokers/drinkers. We have an affinity with dogs (and wildlife) having recently lost our third dog, an Alaskan Malamute, the previous dogs being an English Springer Spaniel and a German Short-Haired Pointer. All our dogs have been members of the family.

    We would love to house mind in the same high manner we love and respect our own house in and around the Central and North Coast of NSW, including South West Rocks, Hat Head, Nambucca, Port Macquarie, Foster, Laurieton,North Haven, Urunga, Coffs Harbour, Yamba and Iluka. We have previously house sat and have engaged house sitters. See references.

    Below, however, are copies of responses from our most recent house sits:

    # South West Rocks, June (and August) 2018.

    "Hi Lyn & Chris
    I hope you arrived home ok, the boys were watching the door all day waiting for you to come back.
    Thank you so much for a fantastic job with the house, gardens & looking after the boys (dogs - Ollie and Baz).
    I'll let you know when next I'm holidaying, hoping to get to Cairns soon, so I'll let you know my dates.
    Lovely meeting you both & catch up again soon.
    Di, Ollie & Baz."

    # Ocean Shores, November 2017

    Lyn & Chris looked after my house dog & chooks for 2 weeks in November
    They cared for them well spoilt & fussed over my border collie & kept me up to date with everything.
    On my return LYN had a lovely meal waiting which was wonderful after a long drive.
    I would recommend them to care for your pets & home with total confidence.
    My dog took to Chris instantly he fussed over her played games with her.. she is often very reserved around strangers.
    Clearly they love dogs.

    Thank you both
    Heather
