More InformationHi there, I'm your next pet-best-friend-er / home-looker-afterer / garden-keeper-aliver. I've been house-sitting continuously since January 2016. I'm very respectful of other people's homes and promise to care for your pets as if they were my own.
I'm a 34-year-old environmental engineer, working within the sustainable buildings field. I also tutor various engineering and urban development courses at QUT and Griffith University.
I have an Advanced Diploma in "Scratch behind the ear" and a PhD in "Throwing sticks", so I can offer those skills to your pets on a regular basis. I love photography, so can leave you with some great photos of your fur-baby to cherish. I'm also a non-smoker, so won't stink up the place.
All my past housesit references have said they're happy to be contacted, so I'll send you their details when I message you. But here's a sample of what they have to say:
Sophie and Jay:
Dave has taken care of our house and pets at least half a dozen times over the last eight years. He is always reliable and we know our pets are in good hands. He will always send us a photo if we are missing them and once even taught our dog to play cards... we have a photo to prove it. The chances are he will have you in stitches with his witty photos and messages.
It is so good to come home from time away and find your house neat and tidy and well looked after. If you are looking for a friendly and reliable housesitter, Dave ticks all the boxes.
Lois and Rod:
David has successfully completed house- sits for us and we highly recommend him in this role.
We have found him to be entirely trustworthy, punctual and thoughtful. Our house was left spotless with clean linen on the beds and in the bathrooms. The lawn had been mowed and gardens were still growing. Our swimming pool was left in excellent condition.
The neighbours reported that there had been no parties or disturbances during our long absence.
We were provided with up-dates when required and the pets were lovingly cared for ( even a little spoilt.) We even had a welcome home message waiting for us from the cats.
David has also completed house- sits for other members of our family who have also been thoroughly delighted with the care taken with the house and animals.
We have no hesitation in recommending David as a reliable, hard-working and respectful house-sitter.
Steve and Julie:
I have known David for over 30 years and find him reliable, trustworthy and a very likable man.
He house sat for us from February to late august 2016 and the house was clean and tidy when we returned. Our multitude of garden and potted plants were also well cared for.
I would recommend Dave to any future house/pet sitting.
David has just completed a 'house sit' for us. I have the added advantage of having known David for many years.
He is a exceptionally polite, well mannered, considerate young man and very trust worthy. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him for any house sitting that you might require. I will definitely be offering David the opportunity to look after my home again in the future.
Travis and Emma:
David was brilliant; he looked after our animals without fuss, had the house in tip top shape including washing linens, and kept in communication while we were away. Thoroughly recommend David!
