More information about this house sitterHello
We retired and sold our small business mid-2019. Over the years we have travelled extensively in Australia and overseas. Now we want to spend time "living" in different communities and have found pet/house sitting is a wonderful way to provide this experience.
We are both fit and healthy, non-smokers, clean and tidy, security conscious and respectful of others property, belongings and privacy.
Since September 2019 we have enjoyed nine pet/house sit assignments in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. Our assignments typically include dogs and cats, old and young, active and lazy, healthy and ailing. A couple of assignments have included rescue dogs which can be nervous around new people, particularly men. The longest it took for a rescue dog to be comfortable with Robert was three days. We have also looked after chooks, rabbits and fish. We make sure they get plenty of love, care and attention.
We have our own transport and are not travelling with a caravan or pets.
Prior to the covid19 outbreak we planned an extensive round-the-world trip from March-October covering travel and including four pet/house sit assignments in the UK. Our apartment in North Sydney was already rented when the Australian borders were closed so we are staying on the mid north coast of New South Wales until mid-October. We have undertaken a couple of short assignments in Sydney but will be available full time after mid-October.
We are Airbnb users and I have included these references with some pet/house sitting references.
We find it is best to have a chat with owners to see if we fit with what you are looking for to take care of your pets.

Rob & Denise were the perfect housesitters. From first contact right thru to when I returned from my 3 week holiday they were excellent. We received regular updates on our 2 dogs which was our main concern and they looked after them as they were their own. The house was kept clean and tidy as well.
I wouldn't hesitate in using them again as for us they were exactly what we were looking for. 10 out of 10

Fantastic house and pet sitters. They took exceptional care of all our chickens, dogs and fish. Gardens were well cared for including our veggie garden. Gave us regular updates on our pets and made sure our holiday was relaxing knowing our home was in safe hands. Highly recommend Denise and Robert, would have them back again anytime.

Cannot recommend Denise & Rob enough. They are a lovely, friendly and reliable couple who took great care of my 2 dogs & elderly cat, to the point I think the animals missed them after they had gone! Arrived back to a clean home with food left for me!! Hope to get them back next year. Thanks Denise & Rob.

Denise was a lovely guest to have stay in my apartment and left it very clean and tidy. Welcome anytime. May 2018
Denise and her companion were great guests. Easy going, respectful of the place and very interesting to talk to. They left the apartment in perfect condition and as clean and tidy as they found it. I recommend hosting them anytime and I hope I will have the pleasure to host them again in the future ! Definitely thumbs up! June 2017

Denise and her husband was great guests. Very friendly, polite, quiet and so nice to talk to. The communication was good all time. They left the flat absolutely clean and tidy, I could hardly see they had been staying there at all. I can highly recommend them as guests to any one, and they are more than welcome back another time. September 2016
It was terrific to host Denise and Rob - they are the perfect guests. They were most considerate in letting me know their arrival time. They left the studio in excellent condition. It was hard to believe they had actually stayed. A bonus for me was their friendliness and willingness to stop for interesting chats. I also enjoyed the fact that they made the most of their short stay in Canberra. I do hope they come again. They will always be most welcome and there's heaps more to chat about. February2016
