We are a retired couple travelling through Australia for 12 months. Jason (50) worked in the office supplies and print industry and David (56) as a Civil Servent for Her Majesties Government. We are both dog/cat lovers and have owned and looked after many different breeds of dogs including Collies, Westies, Labradors, Cocker Spaniels, Jack Russells, Schnauzers, Puggs, Cockerpoos, Greyhounds, Chihuahuas and Maltese Terriers. We have both owned cats as well. We have also looked after chickens too. After taking early retirement we were Airbnb hosts at our home in London (which is near to Hampton Court). We loved having new people coming to stay with us from all over the world and managed to achieve ‘Super Host’ status. We were accepted by ‘Home Sitters’ in the UK who are an upmarket house/dog sitting service in the UK. We went through a detailed application process and face to face interview including police checks. Both David and I understand how much of a wrench it is leaving a pet behind while you go on holiday or leave. We also understand that your home has to be taken care of and that it’s a big step to invite strangers in to your home. We are both trustworthy people and will take very good care of your pets and home like they were our own. We know Australia very well and have visited many times. David’s sister lives in Queensland on the Gold Coast. Our hobbies include travel, photography, cooking, gardening, being outdoors, walking and meeting new people. As we are not working if your plans change then ours can change too. The reason for house sitting is that we love animals, we would never have put our dog or cat in a kennel. As we’re travelling for an extended period house sitting helps with our costs while we are in Australia for 12 months and takes us to places we may not have dreamed of going to. The photos are some of the dogs we’ve looked after since we’ve been here.
