More information about this house sitter


I was in the dog grooming and training world for over 45 years, taught children and adults beginners level of horse knowledge and riding skills 30 years ago and I've been doing house sitting in farm management for 29yrs.

In 2014 and short time in 2015 ...I was Property Manager at,

Equine Sense for owner-operator Sandy Langsford. Accredited EA level One riding coach. And former part owner of Equestrian Excellence. Trainer of horses and dogs for TV, Shows, Stage Performance work.

Duties included, 15 rugs on and off 13 horses everyday also feeding and watering ..checking paddocks and fences, checking new horse owners/riders adjusting on the property also checking they follow health and safety standards.

Fed, cleaned and groomed the stage and farm dogs.

Keep the pool clean...

And all the usual tasks for good housekeeping.

I love all animals all sizes, I also take on house sits for people that don't have animals.. ...

Hello I'm Roxy, I would like to introduce myself, I am semi-retired DOG TRAINER with over 45yr Exp.

Happy to do long or short sits from Tamworth to the Central Coast, Lake Macquarie, Newcastle & mostly up the East Coast of New South Wales..

The house sit service provides:-

Live-in house sitting by mature, trustworthy, non-smoking and no addictive habits ...

Can look after anything from a unit to home on acreage..

Have cleaned pools, driven a tractor with slasher, use the ride on and small mower .

Am experienced in checking fences on rural properties or looking after somebody's budgie in a unit, cat , goldfish , Turtles . Also if your pet needs hand feeding , I can do that too.

Love all animals and will consider all sits, very long to the very short, just not reptiles or rats thank you.

I also care for (adore) cats, birds, cows, horses etc . ...

Enjoy spoilt pets and although I am an animal trainer, I do not train house sit pets unless asked to.

Will walk and swim them if they like -- notice the 30 mtr lead & harness when swimming the dogs in the pictures.

Pet minding, including walking cleaning, giving medicines, and generally giving them good company and a fun experience. Garden maintenance to a degree & other maintenance services, even slashing small paddocks for long term sits. Collection of post.

Will look after your pets, home and garden , pool etc. as if they were my own.

I would also update you with photo's so you can see first hand that your loved ones are being cared for with such love and attention, which will also put you at ease. Confidence that your home and possessions will be looked after with attention and respect. I will have professionals out for your pets if needed .... horse dentist .... vet ... etc.

As I work as a dog trainer, I could help your pets with anxiety when you go away & could help your pets adjust if you'd like me to. Even if you get another sitter , I could help with training before you go away.

I have owned & rescued - horses , a goat , birds, cats, dogs and even fish ..

Living in different areas , meeting new people and their animals is a joy not many get to experience.

Meeting with owners a few times before the sit starts is great, if possible where pets are involved, it normally helps the pets when they are use to a new person caring for them.


... Semi-retired DOG TRAINER ready at moment's notice, have superior morals & work ethics with impeccable references & no addictive habits.

Was responsible for the security and upkeep of a private home, garden , along with numerous potted plants (indoors and outdoors), a pool, mail sorting and the owner's 2-year old gorgeous dog. Taught her to swim as her owners wanted her to, as she would only go in until her tummy touched the water. She is in one of my photos swimming. ---

References House / Pet sitting Reference-- Roxy is a very experienced dog trainer and has your pets best interests at heart.Our large dog was well looked after (if not a little chubby on our return!) and had been taught to swim!

Our home was perfectly clean, the way we had left and with no damages at the end of 4 weeks. We would recommend Roxy as a reliable housesitter.

Notice the 30 metre lead while swimming on this dog as I taught this one to swim. I could tell she really wanted to but was anxious.


House Sitter Reference -

Roxy looked after my house, on a working horse property, for 4 weeks whilst I was overseas.

She resided in my house for that time.

At the time there were 15 horses that required full attention re feeding and rugging. Also Roxy liased with clients who owned agisted horses.

She took care of my 3 dogs as well as groomed them. Roxy is an experienced dog groomer and I knew I could rely on Roxy if any medical emergency was required for the dogs.

On my return the house was how I left it, tidy and clean, the pool was sparkling and the animals were happy. Had no problems.

I have a police check for peace of mind.
