More InformationWelcome! I'm an experienced house and farm sitter, with a National Police Certificate and Blue Card. I don't drink or smoke.
I'm reliable and caring, and I'll treat your pets like my own, as part of my family. I walk dogs every day, and I follow instructions left, keeping you updated with messages and photos.
A home owner myself, I'll take good care of your house. My goal is for you to come back from your trip to a clean house, and happy pets. I will not be working, so your pets will have company, and they are my first priority.
I have owned dogs, cats, guinea pigs, and chooks, cared for dogs in my home as a paid holiday pet-carer and maintained an organic fruit and vegetable garden on half an acre in Brisbane. When I am not house sitting I foster cats for charities, and volunteer at an SPCA shelter.
I am based in Brisbane and N.Z. I prefer quiet areas, non-smoking houses with internet/WIFI connection, a garden, and a nearby area to walk your dogs.
I'm not able to house sit with large or untrained dogs.
I will be using public transport so need to be handy to train/bus please.
I offer free house sitting, but if I am not in your location would need flights paid, please ask.
Lucy house sat our apartment and our gorgeous 10 year old Australian Silky Angel for 5 weeks while we were in Europe. She kept us updated regularly on her progress along with photos which was very comforting given that this was the first time we have left Angel with anyone other than family or friends. On our return home Angel was in excellent health and not stressed at all. The apartment was as we left it and Lucy had made us a pot of delicious Thai pumpkin soup. We will definitely ask Lucy to look after our Angel again when we next go on holidays if she is willing. Thank you so much for everything Lucy, you are a GEM!!!

Lucy is amazing with our spoilt cocker spaniel, demanding Birman cat and timid border collie. She walks into the house and life goes on as if we'd never left. We don't have a moments worry while we are away. Lucy is an absolute treasure and we can't recommend her highly enough.
