More information about this house sitter

Mary Holmes
Professional Pet sitter

Hello everyone! I am a responsible, friendly, independent woman with a passion for traveling, meeting new people and seeking new adventures. For the past six years I have traveled the world house and pet sitting and all homeowners have asked me back! I invite you to review my excellent references listed on my profile; should you want to communicate with any of the homeowners directly I would be happy to put you in touch.
You will find me conscientious in every detail, warm and engaging, competent and full of good humor and integrity.

A little about me. . .
Having retired as the Director of a non-profit music school with grown children of my own I now look forward to the opportunity to care for your home and your animals. I truly enjoy looking after pets and have owned up to three dogs at once, trained them all in obedience and even handled them in the show ring for a brief time. Over the years I have owned both large and small breeds of dogs as well as cats and ducks and have cared for and loved them all. I am educated, in good health, capable, highly responsible, adaptable and welcome new experiences. All the people I’ve sat for over the years have asked me back and they all have become personal friends.

Why do I want to house/pet sit?
Growing up in Hawai’i and traveling a great deal as a young adult, I have a deep appreciation of other cultures and traditions. I’ve been house and pet sitting internationally for the past 6 years and always strive to provide the assurance and peace of mind that any home and pet owner wants while away. Typically, I will update owners with pictures of your pets on a walk or engaged in play with me every few days and can assure you that your home and property will be well looked after and that you will find it in equal or better condition as when you left. For your convenience I’ve taken the liberty of listing references below and any of the home/pet owners are ready to dialogue directly with you via email, if you have additional questions. Additionally, I am happy to Skype or FaceTime with you, which will give you more information about my qualifications and personality. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future!

What I bring to the assignment and relevant experience:
I have been house and pet sitting worldwide for the past 6 years and have outstanding references from those homeowners that you will find at the bottom of my listed references. I have owned several homes and know what is involved in keeping a property clean and cared for. I am a non-smoking, experienced homeowner and pet owner with a genuine love of cooking and caring for home and hearth. I have a police department background check, an international driver's license and a clean driving record as well as certification in pet first aid from the American Red Cross. I am a genuine animal lover and a firm believer in lots of exercise for dogs and lots of affection and cuddles for all pets!

Please see the attachment for a copy of my excellent references.
