More information about this house sitterChris - I am an Australian born in Queensland but have lived mostly in Sydney. I am retired & currently living in Germany. I'd like to have a Summer season in Australia but our home in Sydney is currently rented hence my interest in solo house-sitting opportunities.
I have experience in house-sitting going back more than 30 years, albeit mostly for friends but also 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.
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 & townhouses etc. which are less suitable for active dogs. My partner was a WIRES volunteer and I was often involved in animal rescues and rehabilitation with her and our rear courtyard was often full of cages with lorikeets and possums etc.
I am pretty fit ( I recently completed the Camino walk to Santiago de Compostela in Spain) so regularly exercising dogs is not a problem. Over the past years I have also learned to understand a lot more about cats and their foibles.
I can be available to house sit from mid-January and would probably prefer longer jobs over short assignments. If selected, I would provide regular updates by email or other media and would also be happy to contribute to utility bills etc.
I am considering house-sits in the eastern states initially but who knows what interesting opportunities may come up? Please make contact by email rather than phone due to the time difference between Australia and Europe.
I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Chris
