More information about this house sitterHello, I am interested in house & pet-minding immediately as I'd like to have a summer in Australia after living on & off in Europe the past 3 years - as well our home in Sydney is currently rented.
I have experience with house-sitting going back more than 30 years with other sites - regularly for friends but also referrals & house-swaps for holidays etc.
I am a non-smoker, reliable, trustworthy and also quite handy so gardening and small maintenance jobs would be no problem. I am in the process of requesting references and can provide these once received.
Workwise I have held many responsible corporate positions and also had 20 years as a teacher, so I can guarantee you'd feel confident that I can care for your home and pets. It is not a small matter inviting someone you don't know well into your home and I would respect you privacy and take good care of your prized assets including your pets of course.
I like most animals and have always had pets - mostly active dogs (e.g. German Pointers, Border Collies etc) but in the last 10 years only cats as we have lived in apartments & town-houses etc. which are less suitable for active dogs.
My partner was a WIRES volunteer and I was often involved helping her in animal rescues and rehabilitation and our rear courtyard was often full of cages with lorikeets, pigeons, cockatoos, possums etc.
I am fit ( I recently completed a long walk from France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain) so regularly exercising dogs is not a problem.
I can be available to house sit from late -January as I am currently house-minding in southern Sydney until 20th January.
I am considering house-sits in the eastern states initially but who knows what interesting opportunities may come up?
I would provide regular updates by email or other media and would also be happy to contribute to utility bills etc.
I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Chris
