More InformationHi, we're Sarah (pharmacist) and Josh (communications technician)- a young couple that after working solidly for over a decade, put our worldly possessions into storage, and hit the road to explore and work our way around Australia while we can. Both of us are clean, tidy, non-smoking, reliable, practical types who have experience working on/minding a range of properties and looking after animals (others, and our own). Both of us grew up in pet-loving homes, with Sarah growing up on a hobby farm (more info below).
Experience with: shy, anxious pets and pets with special requirements (ie. medication administration). We are also happy to walk/run active pets daily or twice daily.
About caring for your home:
We are both flexible and organised so are happy to follow any instructions you may have, and have as regular contact with you as you please. We provide regular updates including pictures of your much loved furry family members. We take pride in what we do and we will do our utmost to keep your house and garden maintained and secure and ready for your return. Your pets safety and comfort are our top priority, so you can rest assured that they will be safe and sound when you return to your home. Any special requirements, such as administering medication are no problem at all.
We both grew up with pets and have continued to enjoy the company and companionship of animals into adulthood. Between us we’ve helped raise and care for all sorts of animals; dogs (large, small, pets and working), cats, horses, chickens, goats, cattle, guineapigs, birds and a whole lot more! Whilst we love pets (as most do) we also understand the real nature of minding animals - keeping them fed on time, minimising disruption to their routine, what to do if they are not well etc.
Why are we looking to house-sit?
Sarah grew up as a young child on the west coast and has some family here, and we’re currently looking to explore Perth as a place to potentially put down roots. Whilst we look for something more permanent it would be great to have a base from which we can explore. With our keen interest to get to know the area and also missing the company of furry friends – housesitting at this time in our lives is ideal for us.
