More information about this house sitterWe are a much travelled, semi-retired married couple. Corina is a Swiss self-employed psychologist and Seamus an Irish/Australian artist.
We were living in Switzerland for 15 years. As Seamus has family and friends in Perth, we visited WA nearly every Summer and discovered the pleasures of house sitting.
In December 2016 we moved back to WA and are house sitting since. We love this experience so much that we aren't in any hurry to settle down.
In our many house sits we've made lots of good friends, both with the pets and their owners. We love every kind of animal and have cared for dogs and cats in all shapes and sizes, rabbits, guinea pigs, chooks, turkeys, birds, fish and even kangaroos.
Our ability to care for pets comes from a life-long experience of living with cats and dogs. This includes old and fragile pets who need special care. Corina even has the reputation of being a cat whisperer.
We're both fit and active and love to go for daily walks, which is a lot more fun in the company of a dog. We are reliable, honest, non-smoking and noted for our Swiss cleanliness and our kind attention to detail and to animals needs.
We like to live quietly and respect our neighbours. We are friendly, tolerant and easy going. We provide our own provisions and are completely self-sufficient.
In Switzerland we used to have a big garden. We are well aware of the joys and the work involved in maintaining this important part of a property. We have done long-term house sits on large rural properties and enjoyed the many challenges.
Whenever we travelled, we had house-sitters to look after our own pets, so we know how important it is to feel that your darlings are well cared for while you're having a nice time away. We like to think that your pets also enjoy a wonderful holiday in our company.
It would be a pleasure for us to take care of your home and look after your pets as if they were our own.
