Hi, we are a semi retired couple in our late fifties taking some time out to travel this beautiful country of ours and house and pet sitting is a great way to explore different areas.
We are experienced housesitters, are very trustworthy and dependable, we are both non smokers and only light social drinkers. 
As home owners we understand of the importance of looking after your house and we will treat your property and personal things as we would treat our own - with the utmost respect, keeping your property clean, tidy and secure, caring for it until your return home. We are also very happy to look after your lawn and garden whilst your house is in our care.
We are both animal lovers and will look after your pets in accordance with your directions and just like your house, we will treat your fur babies like they are our own. We have extensive experience with dogs, in particular greyhounds and up until starting our journey we were fostering rescues for GAP.
We are happy to send you updates and pics of your pets to show you they are happy, safe and well cared for.


This was a House Sit done for my parents: To Whom It May Concern We had the pleasure of Karen and Russ Brown looking after our 2 fur kids while we took a 5 week break. Karen and Russ are obviously dog lovers because they fitted in with our 2 straight away. One of our dogs has a medical issue, which Karen and Russ handled with ease. We would gladly have Karen and Russ back again as our house was left spotless and our dogs given the loving care that they are used to. We have no hesitation in recommending Karen and Russ Brown as happy house and dog sitters. R & P Fuller

Karen and Russ, From the first point of contact to the last day Karen and Russ were fantastic. I felt like we knew them before they even started the house sit. Karen and Russ came to our home firstly to meet our fur children which they fell in love with instantly and we knew then that these too wonderful people were the right people for the job. Throughout our holiday Karen kept in contact sending pictures and information about our the pups. Taking the pups to day care, to the park, on walks and even swimming at the local river. When arriving home there was milk, fresh bread and eggs waiting for us, the dogs had been fed, the house was extremely clean, all the plants were alive and the dogs were super sad to see Karen and Russ leave. I could not recommend Karen and Russ highly enough, and will always be happy for them to return to our home to look after our fur kids once again.

Karen and Russ looked after our pets and house while we were overseas for 6 weeks. They were extremely reliable and kept in touch. The house and animals, especially our 2 dogs, were well looked after. The garden and lawn was maintained also. We have no hesitation in recommending Karen and Russ if you are looking for a reliable, trustworthy and dog loving couple.
