More information about this house sitter

Hi my name is Ken. I have vacancies after the 3rd of January 2020 until the 9th Jan. I am available from the 16th Jan 2020 until the 14th february. I am retired and I have a non smoking non drinking pedigree. I have been sitting Queensland for some time now having come from Melbourne. I am then free from the 3rd of January 2020. I am a responsible and caring person and I have many referees for you to contact. I am basically city guy so farm animals are a bit out of my comfort zone. Have looked after dogs, fish, cats and birds, mowed 5 acres and done my best with gardens.

I am back with Mindahome after having been on a long term house sit in Nanango Queensland. I have had this great little dog called Hamish to look after and the 5 acre property to mow and maintain. It has ended now as it has been sold. I look forward to acquainting myself with new charges and spoiling them as I do with all.

I have been seven years previous to retiring spent every day with dogs. As a groomer.
I have decided to have a few experiences and travel a little. The people and pets have all been so great I would not have it any other way. My photo is with one of my favourite clients a very lovable Pug called Romy. Sadly passed away now. She and I "fixed"the world as I washed her and she grunted and gave e great advice. I have been a home owner did about ten years of renovations and so am very caring about others homes.

As a reference I asked a few of my clients if they might write on behalf of their dogs. I can obtain references from my recent sits if required.

I am happy to give contact details to these clients if references are wanted. I have had a police check also if required. Have own transport and am house trained.

Billy: I am the Cavalier in the second picture. Hi My name is Billy and this is me with Ken…(if we have done a picture)
Ken has been my beloved groomer for almost 7 years.
He always comes when I need him…I think he must be very reliable.
We catch up for a couple of hours every 2-3months.
We listen to music together whist Ken washes and clips my very Furry coat
And.. I even let him trim my nails…we are very close!
I trust Ken …he very caring and gentle.

The third picture is a crazy Schnauzer. Hi I'm Reggie, Ken (one of my favourite friends) used to come and wash me. I'd hear his truck in our driveway and I'd get so excited! I'd run around and around and then jump into his truck, because I loved the massage and treats I'd get from Ken, (not so much the washing and clipping. It was like my pamper session and I knew Ken really loved me. I really miss time with Ken, now my dad washes me, but it is not the same.
Miss you my friend Ken, Reggie Lisa

I am the fourth picture down. Hi my name is Mikey and ken has been my groomer for 7 years now and he never failed to make me feel like a handsome boy! I love the way he made me feel a million bucks! I'm going to miss him coming to my house and giving me my favourite treats! I rate him 10/10, love you Ken!
