More information about this house sitter
Our four children have finally flown the nest, we've semi-retired, and look forward to exploring as much of Australia as possible.
Originally from South Africa we relocated to Australia in 2006. Prior to our move pets, especially cats and dogs, were always much loved members of our family.
We've been house sitting since December 2015. Whether it's a small apartment in the city to distant rural properties we've loved caring for a wide variety of homes and pets. Winning the trust of skittish cats, throwing the ball for exuberant dogs, feeding wild birds or cuddling up in the evenings with precious pets have been wonderful experiences.
We have ourselves in the past had to rely on others to take care of our beloved pets and home, and understand and appreciate home owners who are concerned about ensuring the best possible care for their property and pets while they're away. We own houses which are tenanted and know how heartbreaking it can be to have a bad tenant. We promise to take care of your property as if it were our own.
Alan is the ultimate handyman, an expert at maintaining swimming pools and keeping a property ship shape. Glynis has a passion for gardening and has established many gardens from scratch.
For six years soon after moving to Canberra, Glynis, a teacher by profession, worked as a communications/client liaison officer for the ACT Government. Other than that we've been self-employed for several decades, and most recently owned a small scale soap manufacturing business. We're resourceful, responsible, honest and dependable, with many references available to those who'd like more information.
During an extended trip to South Africa in 2015 we worked at raising awareness and fundraising for two animal welfare organisations, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Funda Nenja. We have experience in trapping, taming and re-homing of feral kittens and Glynis worked as an assistant at Adrienne's Dog Training School.
We've been delighted when homeowners have asked us back to do repeat sits and have made some wonderful friends, (furry and non-furry!), along the way. We thoroughly enjoy long term sits where we sit for free. We have from time to time been asked by homeowners to help out when they have a need to be away from home for a short period of time. This has led to the establishment of a pet care business which homeowners find useful if going away overnight or for short trips, such as business trips or long weekends.
Looking after other people's homes and beloved pets is a very special privilege. We take great pride in being competent and responsible house sitters, and most of all, providing your pets with the best possible care, attention and affection in your absence. Read more...
