I am a retired lady who has 6 children and 13 grandchildren.l have come off a farm life style of 16 years. Breeding sheep for 14 years was a great experience. I delivered at least 25 lambs in that time when the ewes needed help. I had 2 alpacas to protect the lambs from foxes . Other animals on the farm over the years included goats cats dogs rabbits Guinea pigs chickens ducks a talking budgie and goldfish. After 30 years of being in the country my life style has returned me to Melbourne . I am a non smoker a tidy person and respectful of people and their property. I like new experiences everyday. House sitting gives me the opportunity to meet new people and their pets in different locations around Australia.

This is the first time I've used a Happy House Sitter, so I was a bit nervous. We were to be away for 4 weeks leaving our two "children", our poodles and various birds to Lyn's care. She arrived the night before as requested and I was immediately taken with her warm, capable manner. I started to relax. She sent us videos and texts of our dogs and also, managed to get the little one walking! and them both to stop barking. When we returned, the house was immaculate, and there was some food and even gifts! Not sure why as It was us who should have been giving Lyn presents! I can only heartily recommend Lyn to anybody who has precious pets and things in their house - be assured everything will be carefully looked after. She is a terrific person, very approachable and responsible. If you are lucky enough to book her, you will be as happy as we are! Thank you Lyn, it has been an absolute joy to have you here.

Lyn cared for our two dogs and 1/2 acre property. Lyn did acceptinally well with our 15mth old dog who is full of energy. We were very happy with the care Lyn provided our dogs and with the gardens and house on our return. We would most definitely accept Lyn to house sit for us in the future.

Lyn kindly looked after our home, our dog and our garden for a week in December, 2018, while we were interstate for a family wedding. We appreciated Lyn coming to meet us before the house sit, so we could get to know each other a little and familiarise her with our dog, house & garden.
Lyn is a kind, warm hearted person, who our dog (a greyhound) took to immediately, which was important to us of course.
We found Lyn to be honest, reliable, independent & self-sufficient. We appreciated that she went the extra mile in caring for our dog and for the garden, watering our many pot plants, feeding our fish and going out of her way to ensure our dog was eating properly.
While we were away Lyn was happy to text us and to send us photos of our dog whenever we asked her to.
When we arrived home, Lyn had stripped her bed and washed the linen and towels and hung them on the line for us. She left the house and garden looking very neat and tidy.
I would happily ask Lyn to house sit for us again and know that she would do a good job and be completely reliable.
