More information about this house sitterWe are a professional couple that loves animals and is very experienced in taking care of them. We have been full-time house sitting for the past year & we can say that housesitting and petsitting has become part of our lifestyle and we have been enjoying it throughout.
We like the change and getting to know different suburbs and new people (well, Lenka is an anthropologist) and their furry friends. It feels like being on a journey constantly while we can both pursue our careers, studies and passions here in Melbourne-our home of the last 7 years.
We have extensive experience with both large and small dog breeds and cats including old animals that require administration of medication (incl. injections). We have also experienced many sits with multiple animals including horses and chickens at both large properties and small apartments.
One of our core value is to respect other living beings' environment and habitat. That is a principle that we will apply when caring for your home and pet(s). We understand how important it is for owners to be able to trust and allow someone unknown into own well-manicured and valued personal space. We appreciate all of this and always put a priority on cherishing other's homes and pets with the highest respect. We always leave your home clean and prepared for you so you can just drop bags and unwind upon return. Clean, caring and kind, that's what we are.
We can provide 24/7 attention to your precious fur baby as Lenka is currently writing her PhD thesis from home, so she is able to hang around, walk, cuddle and talk to your pet during the day. On weekends, we offer to take your doggies for our day outings in nature or on the beach or just hang out at home. Either way, we always respect the established routines that your pet is used to and follow instructions you leave us with.
We are both happy to provide our police checks upon request. Please give us a call or message, we will be happy to mind your sanctuary.
Although we are new to this website, we have excellent references from another one (aussiehousesitters.com):
ANDREA and her Kelpie/Staffy Teah (Abbottsford, 2 months in 2019):
'Lenka and Jorge were excellent house sitters and, more importantly, loved by my older dog, Teah. She's missing them and sulking now that they are gone (my feelings aren't hurt at all, no!) They sent lots of great photos and videos while I was away and were very quick communicators on all the other pre-departure and post-arrival stuff. Recommended for sure. Thanks!'
BRENDA and her cats Sylvester and Princess, dogs Heeler Blue a Husky Sky, two horses Dakota and Carmen (Research, 1,5 months in 2019):
'Lenka and Jorge took on the challenge of sitting my property and animals recently whilst I visited my daughter in UK. They were brave and I was pleased to say they came through perhaps not unscathed and now very experienced. It was a big job for them in very cold weather. All my animals 2 cats, 2 dogs and 2 horses were happy and well-fed. Thanks, guys. All the best for your future sits.'
VALERIE and her duo Greyhounds Bridget and Mickey (Bulleen, 3 weeks in 2019):
'Lenka and Jorges proved to be an excellent choice to house/dog sit whilst we sojourned overseas. Our fur babies loved them and they were diligent with walking duties. The house was clean with our bed all made ready for us and doggy coats all freshly washed when we returned. Yes definitely use again if they are still house sitting in 2020.'
SARAH and her Labradoodle Rupert and cat Tom (Brighton, repeated sits in 2018):
'Jorge and Lenka were great house sitters, looking after my place as they would their own. More importantly though, my dog just loved them and was super well cared for and got lots of walks, hugs and cuddles. I'm certain he missed them when they left! Thank you guys for being such good company for Rupert and Tom and for helping out at late notice.'
