Caring and competent couple for your complete peace of mind – available weekends only

About Sitter:

Chris and myself are a married couple who love animals. We are new to Tassie and currently renting (no pets allowed) so we enjoy loving on other people’s pet’s and house sitting while seeing different parts of Tassie. Chris works as a correctional officer at Risdon and we fit house sits around his schedule. I am a writer and work from home, so your pets will not be left without company.

We own properties in the Uk , one of which is for sale and another rented out, and are practical people, calm and sensible and competent in a crisis. Until last year I worked as a college lecturer in Abu Dhabi for 5 years and that was when we discovered the joys of pet sitting during my long, hot summer breaks. We have now done 10 great sits, world wide through Trusted housesitters and have been given great references by homeowners who are happy to have you call to recommend us. Now we want to pet sit only in Tassie as we are settled here.

I used to have a smallholding and livery yard, am a qualified riding instructor and dog trainer, and have experience handling many types of animals and livestock. All animals love Chris, for his gentle, quiet manner with them. In Abu Dhabi we used to foster former fighting dogs for a rescue society and teach them how to be pets. Hard work but tremendously rewarding especially when we get updates from their new families about what wonderful dogs they are! We also are both quite handy around the place and know where to find a stop tap and the fuse box, and when to call a vet in, should the worst happen. You can go on your trip with absolutely no worries, safe in the knowledge that your pets are being looked after with experienced, loving care and your home is in sensible, competent hands.
