We are a non smoking retired couple, who enjoy traveling, gardening and love animals of all types, especially dogs and cats. We have now been house sitting for the last year and a half. 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 regions we haven't experienced.
We completed a three month house sit in Brittany, France, our first sit, 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 last winter, taking care of a wonderful dog, that we fell in love with. We are followed that with a three month sit in Northumberland til mid August, taking care of two sweet dogs, and maintaining the property. We then did another three month sit in France, the Burgundy region, with three cats and three hens, a wonderful experience. We have just finished a one month sit in South Carolina, and will go for two months to the island of Vieques, taking care of four rescue dogs.
We bring our experience garnered over a lifetime. We are responsible, trustworthy, and look forward to maintaining others' home, treating 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.
