More Information

My partner, (Gordon Petersen) and I, Edith van Dommelen, are self employed , home based, our businesses being online business so as long as we have access to internet we can manage and run our businesses.

Having sold our property and before making any decisions on what we shall do going forward thought that house sitting would be a good option for a while, lifestyle change as we love animals.

If pet sitting is involved, we've both always been good with animals/pets everything from fish, birds, cats and dogs , chickens, ducks, and any other pets from our own personal experience of having pets.

Over the years we are well experienced in looking after pets of our own , taking them to the vets etc or even as we do from time to time have a mobile vet come to the house.

We are mobile , have our own cars, non smokers and in good health and looking forward to doing house sitting as part of a new chapter in our lives .

We have been house/pet sitting since Nov 2016 but in Perth and its surrounds but as you can see we have had a lot of experience and many written and verbal references for you to follow up and which speak for themselves as well as o course already looked after Jazz in 2017.

We are Perth based (our home is in Jindalee) and work for ourselves in home based/internet businesses and thus, always around to give your pets the attention and time like we always did with ours. Edith's nickname is 'The Dog Whisperer" ....probably added to by Edith's popular doggy carrot and peanut butter muffin treats she bakes.

We commenced house and pet sitting as a change in lifestyle and since 29/11/2016 have been booked back to back and have forward bookings to 26/4/2020, with gaps in between so have availability for house/pet sits like yours. If any house/pet sits slightly overlap, being a couple one finishes one and the other starts the next one. Any housesits only we do not have to be there all the time so can do a housepet sit for our regular clients if they need us for a few days.

Also one of our businesses is short term furnished accommodation so well experienced in the maintenance of properties both inside and outside which includes the maintenance of pools and sometimes large acreages/grounds/gardens and lawns. Our other business is online DIY Kids Tennis Programs (for the 3-6 year old age groups).
