We are a non smoking retired couple, who enjoy traveling, gardening and love dogs. We are looking for long term house sitting, preferably in Europe and the United States. We are willing and able to maintain the homeowners' residences, and gardens. We also would enjoy taking care of the family pets. We would be willing to sit summer or winter.
Having just sold our home, we would like to incorporate some travel in our future, before establishing another household. House sitting seems the perfect opportunity. We have been to Europe several times, and appreciate the culture, and the people. We would have no problem adapting to the lifestyle, and would look forward to doing so. We are particularly interested in travel to France and Italy, where we have been several times, but would love to experience other countries in Europe. We also look forward to house sits in the United States, where we have traveled often, and would like to visit parts we haven't experienced.
We completed a three month house sit in Brittany, France,last fall, where we took care of four rental properties, along with two pigs, three sheep, and two cats. It was a wonderful experience, and we had the opportunity to enjoy the company of the many guests. We did a 3 month sit in Maryland this winter, taking care of a wonderful dog, that we fell in love with. We are currently in Northumberland til mid August, taking care of two sweet dogs, and maintaining the property. We are looking for a sit in the New Year. as we are to be in France doing a sit until Christmas. We prefer longer sits, but are open to others
We bring our experience garnered over a lifetime. We are responsible, trustworthy, and look forward to maintaining others' home, and treat it with the respect we would want someone to treat ours. We have had several dogs and would really enjoy that interaction We have 25 years experience running our own business, attending and exhibiting at major trade shows in Canada and the US; and representing US. companies in Canada. I also have experience in the education field, having taught for several years. We are enthusiastic and look forward to the challenges that lay ahead.
