More information about this house sitter

We took this photo on a very cold day in Norway. The road was closed earlier in the day due to overnight snow.
We retired and sold our small business mid 2019. Over the years we have travelled extensively in Australia and overseas. Now we want to spend time "living" in different communities and have found house/pet sitting is a wonderful way to provide this type of experience.
We are non-smokers, clean and tidy, security conscious and respectful of others property, belongings and privacy.
We are both fit and healthy and enjoy spending time with different pets. We make sure they get plenty of care and attention.
Since September 2019 we have completed nine pet/house sit assignments in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
We received a wonderful reference from our first pet sit (see below) through another organisation. We took the other photo as we were leaving.
We have completed nine assignments to date. We have enjoyed all our assignments to date which typically include dogs and cats, old and young, active and lazy, healthy and ailing. Several have included rescue dogs who at times can be nervous around new people particularly men. The longest it is taken for a rescue dog to be comfortable with Robert was four days. We have also looked after chooks, rabbits and fish.
Our original plan was to fly to Europe in March after our Australian assignments where we had also lined up four assignments in the UK. The coronavirus put that on hold and we are currently self isolating for several months in the mid north coast of New South Wales. We are still undertaking assignments in Sydney until the borders are opened up again.
We are Airbnb users and I have included these references with some house/pet sitting references below.
We find it is best to have a chat to see if we might fit with what you are looking for.

Rob & Denise were the perfect housesitters. From first contact right thru to when I returned from my 3 week holiday they were excellent. We received regular updates on our 2 dogs which was our main concern and they looked after them as they were their own. The house was kept clean and tidy as well.
I wouldn't hesitate in using them again as for us they were exactly what we were looking for. 10 out of 10

Denise and her companion were great guests. Easy going, respectful of the place and very interesting to talk to. They left the apartment in perfect condition and as clean and tidy as they found it. I recommend hosting them anytime and I hope I will have the pleasure to host them again in the future ! Definitely thumbs up !

Denise and her husband was great guests. Very friendly, polite, quiet and so nice to talk to. The communication was good all time. They left the flat absolutely clean and tidy, I could hardly see they had been staying there at all. I can highly recommend them as guests to any one, and they are more than welcome back another time.

It was terrific to host Denise and Rob - they are the perfect guests. They were most considerate in letting me know their arrival time. They left the studio in excellent condition. It was hard to believe they had actually stayed. A bonus for me was their friendliness and willingness to stop for interesting chats. I also enjoyed the fact that they made the most of their short stay in Canberra. I do hope they come again. They will always be most welcome and there's heaps more to chat about.
