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!


We had Dan look after our dog Woody and house for 5 weeks while we were away, and he did a fantastic job. He really looked after our boy, we came back to a dog who was as happy as when we left. Got plenty of updates and photos. House was neat and tidy. We can not recommend Dan enough to anyone looking for a pet/house sitter. He is fantastic. Definitely would love to book Dan the next time we go away.

Dan looked after our much loved dog and two chickens for a month recently. He was fantastic with our pets, Harley adored him and our house was immaculate when he left. I would highly recommend Dan's services and we hope he will be available for our next holiday. Andrea

We just returned from our holiday yesterday and were so thrilled upon our return. Our dogs were relaxed and very happy, our house looked and smelled amazing, and the garden is looking great despite the 40 plus degree days! We could not be happier with how Dan looked after our home and pets! We cannot wait to book our next holiday, making sure Dan is available again! We cannot recommend him highly enough. Thanks so much Dan!

Dan was a great dog & house sitter for our 3 dogs for 5weeks. He was very clean & tidy , in fact i think the house was cleaner on our return rhan when we left! Dan kept us in touch with our fur kids through messages & photos which we appreciated. Dan has an obvious fondess for dogs & displays skill in handling them. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dan, we have already booked him for two more sits coming up.

Dan is a dream pet-sitter - patient, caring, neat, active and someone who will love your pet as much as you do! He cared for our little staffy "Trekkie" while we were overseas for three weeks and as we had not left her before, we concerned ourselves greatly with finding the perfect person to look after her in our absence. We found that person in Dan and now have a house-sitter for life!

Dan was wonderful!! I was away for three weeks and got home to happy dogs, a wonderfully looked after garden (it was March so very hot) and the house was clean and neat. Best thing I have done - I would highly recommend Dan - he is trustworthy and kind. I am happy to give a verbal reference if required - I would use Dan again definately!!
