More InformationI'm 44 years old, a mature aged person you might say; who enjoys a healthy lifestyle & a non smoker who is also single.
I’m currently taking time off work to write a screenplay, which means I can spend quality time with your pets & be very flexible with the dates you would like your house sat.
Fortunately, this allows me to travel to new cities & towns to experience a different lifestyle & at the same time help other people out, by looking after their beloved pets & home.
I love animals & understanding their needs helps me bond & care for them. I recently minded 2 dogs & a beautiful house at Avalon Beach; Charlie, a 10 year old Border Collie & Rosie, a 3 year old Kelpie cross.
Rosie being a working dog, was full of energy & loved to play ball all day. Charlie however, was the older one, who ruled the roost & loved nothing more than a good tummy rub & to laze about in the sun.
I have experience looking after a range of different animals. Earlier in the year, I minded a menagerie of animals & gardens on a farm near Brisbane, including 4 ducks, 6 cheeky chickens, a cocky rooster, a rampaging bull, a cow & 2 dogs; along with a devlish Devon Rex cat, that for some reason liked eating rubber bands.
During this sit, I found a growth on ‘Rasta’ a German shepherd. I alerted the owners & we discussed the situation & they were content for me to deal with the problem.
The growth came off & became an open wound. I monitored it daily & treated it with antiseptic. I am glad to report that I had a successful outcome & Rasta’s wound healed really well.
Apart from dealing with medical issues during my many years of minding people’s homes; I have also faced a variety of problems, which have seriously affected the running of the house.
For example, I have encountered broken septic tanks & fallen trees on power lines. In both cases, I had to use my initiative & navigate my way through the issues, before solving the problem & getting the house back to normal.
In my professional career, I've worked in the television industry for over ten years & also as a primary school teacher & more recently as a holiday park caretaker.
As a holiday park manager, I would attend to any maintenance issues that needed fixing & also included daily cleaning. I also find it relaxing watering the garden on dusk, after it has cooled down for myself & more importantly the plants.
I pride myself in being responsible & reliable in my professional & personal life & would look after your home in the same manner that I love & respect my own home.
Upon request, I am able to supply you with a police check & the phone numbers of past employers & people who I have house sat for previously, to help you in assessing my suitability for the role.
I look forward to speaking with you & hopefully we are able to help each other out in the future.
