More information about this house sitterHi,
We sold our home in October 2018 to be free to explore until our apartment is built, due for completion late June 2020. We intend to spend our time caravanning, staying near our daughter in Byron Bay, and house-sitting, either near Byron Bay or in the Adelaide area to stay near our other daughter, husband and grandchildren. Once we move into our new home, we aim to widen our house-sitting experiences to take in new areas for us.
We have done quite a few house-sits now, and met some wonderful dogs of all sizes, and a few sweet geriatric cats. Two of the photos in our profile show Jeff with a couple of "our" house-sitting pets: dogs seem to love Jeff! As we have had pets throughout most of our married lives , ( cats, rabbit, Guinea pigs and 4 dogs), it has been great to interact with pets again. We have had several house-sits organized with chickens as well, (all with names 😀, ) and loved the fresh eggs! We also took on the care of the delightful ( apart from the razor sharp teeth) 8 week old Bernese Mountain puppy Maya: adored her so much that I’ve added her photo to our profile 💕
Some of these house-sits have been organized by word-of-mouth, with people finding out we were "home-free” ,but we also decided to join a few agencies and have met some great pets ( and home owners!) through this.
We have a couple of reviews therefore on this site but also have other previous homeowners happy to provide phone references should you wish to contact them.
As former teachers we both have current SA Police check certification for working with children, which we thought may be relevant since most families think of their pets as extra children!
We can assure you we will be meticulous and respectful in looking after your home, and will care for your pets as if they were our own.
Kind Regards, Jan and Jeff
