More information about this house sitterI am known to be responsible, respectful, reliable and am a non-smoker.
I have owned a dog most of my adult life though recently needed to euthanize my 15.5 yr old golden retriever, a very difficult and emotional decision. Before her I had a Kelpie and before that a male golden retriever. All were rescue dogs.
I have basic farm experience as my parents had a stud sheep farm and my brother was a dairy farmer.
Loved my garden, though feed the crickets and possums more than me! I am a member of a garden club and enjoy pottering.
I own my home in WA, though it’s now rented as have recently retired and moved back to Melbourne. I was a head of middle school in Geraldton, WA for many years.
I am practical, careful and tidy, some would say perdantic!
I appreciate the trust placed in a house sitter, I was fortunate that my home and dog were cared for by the same couple for 5 years. And appreciated regular contact and photos so would do the same.
I did a short house sitting stint in Ireland in 2012 when o/s on long service leave. I had a teacher exchange to High River, Canada many years ago. Prior to buying my own home I spent 4 years house sitting for colleagues on long service leave. I share this info so you are aware I have house and pet sat before.
This year I have house sat 2 guinea pigs and 2 fish for 3 weeks, looked after a regional farmlet and 2 kelpies for a week and a lovely lab for a week and returning for a further 3 weeks.
I have a working with children card and a police clearance. I can provide work statements and testionals as well as a reference from a friend whose unit I often stayed at when in Perth.
Am interested in short term house sitting and open to regional as well as city homes.
