More InformationHi! We are an easy-going, mature couple enjoying a flexible life-style that allows us to move around freely, looking after homes and pets in Perth and nearby rural areas.
We are both animal lovers and have had pets (cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds) almost all our lives. We love walking, especially with a dog or two in tow. Both of us are non-smokers and we have a strong record of caring exceptionally well for the homes we live in. And because we each own rental properties, we fully appreciate what you are looking for when you consider inviting sitters into your home.
"I'm a former staff member at Murdoch University, now self-employed, helping research students format their thesis documents. I work mainly from home so your pet(s) will get lots of companionship and attention. I also have interests in music and community radio, regularly co-hosting the breakfast program on Radio Fremantle."
"I'm the outdoors type, originally from Brisbane but now happily settled in WA. I work part-time for the Health Department as a help-line telephone counsellor. I'm also a qualified yoga teacher and run classes and workshops from time to time. But my favourite pastime is jumping into the campervan and heading off into nature."
We're a friendly couple and we live a quiet, orderly kind of life. We're definitely not the loud partying type. Our ethic is one of simple honesty, courtesy and goodwill to everyone we meet, personally and professionally.
We see house and pet-sitting as a wonderful way to bring variety into our lives and to meet great people and their much-loved animal companions. For us it's a privilege, and we are committed to giving our very best in return.
We prefer sits of 2 months or longer, and generally we don't take sits shorter than 1 month. But it's not a rigid rule, so please feel free to contact us if you need sitters for a shorter period. Sometimes a short sit lands conveniently in the gap between two longer ones. You can check our exact availability on our booking calendar.
Thanks very much for your interest. We hope we can be of service to you and look forward to hearing from you if you think we're the right fit for your needs.
Michael & Dale
