I'm Justine, half of the below house-sitting duo, and will be sitting solo for the next 5mts as Mass is working in Sydney! I'll leave our writeup as is, so you get all the info. Feel free to contact me, I'd love to hear from you. Sadly, as dogs do need that bit more time and company, I won't be able to sit dogs for 5mts (I work days, it wouldn't be fair on them!) unless you have a set that are already used to only morning and night contact. All other enquiries welcome. :) ~Justine

We are one Aussie (an Animals Australia member) and one & wannabe Aussie (Canadian-Italian vegetarian) who love Melbourne and our busy pet-sitting life here. We've been petsitting a year and love it! We have so many fur-baby faves and memories, all over Brunswick, North Melbourne, Caulfield, Fitzroy, Footscray, Docklands, Collingwood, Preston and Moonee Ponds!
Both experienced pet owners & and animal lovers, with previous home-owning/ fur-family sitting experience. Our own personal previous family members have included Fatso the pug, Chloe the blue heeler X Staffordshire, four rescue moggies, one fish, an adopted Chinese- speaking galah and an overbearing budgie. My ambition is to adopt an alpaca and Mass wants a grumble of pugs. (Yes, it's called a grumble) Recent bookings: Oct 2018-end April 2019 (current) Manook, a giant teddy bear of a husky,

About Justine: Im a project coordinator at DHHS for Family Safety Victoria. Love a good veggie garden, Latin music and long walks around Melbs. Im originally from the North-West of WA and grew up around properties with horses, sheep, birds and working dogs. Nowadays I work where there are people: Perth, London Brisbane and now Melbourne. I love Melbourne and am here to stay! Without my own furkid I do miss some puppy love keenly and would be a responsible foster parent whilst you are away. As part of my house/furbaby-sitting I like to send regular video updates of your fur-child whilst you are away, and for peace of mind.
About Mass: Im a recently admitted lawyer with a background in Entertainment law. Im originally from Canada and have been on this side of the equator for just over 4 years now with most of my time spent on the Gold Coast but have now relocated to Melbourne for work. When Im not focused on work I enjoy playing guitar and try and stay physically active at least 4 times a week. Im a non-smoker, live a pretty regimented life and love animals. Ive been the proud animal parent to dogs and cats alike.
Between us someone's nearly always home - great for keeping fur family company. Please say hi and ask any questions - we would love to come and meet you and your pets. Mutual comfort is a must.
