Our names are Eddie and Debbie and we are 56 and 53. We have been married for 33 years,and we have no children or pets. We are very flexible as we are semi-retired, working only in the summer months on holiday parks as park managers. This allows us to travel and explore during the winter months different countries ..ps-we have no police checks,as we have not lived in England for 18 years!.BUT 1 of of our references is from a retired police sergeant!
We miss the connection we had with previous home owners we have worked for and their pets.We had a house and pet sitting service whilst living in spain. We are interested in exploring and seeing different parts of europe/world.because of the life we lead in the summer ,it is not possable to have our own pets , the housesits allows us to have the time with the animals and enjoy the joy that animals bring to humans .
We have recently returned from living in Spain(16yrs) For eight years we ran our
own house and pet sitting service. This involved pets living in our home and also myself and Eddie living in the pets' homes! We had a wide variation of animals to look after including dogs, cats, ducks, geese, chickens, parrots, pigs, goats, donkeys, horses,guinea pigs,hamster,hedgehogs,fish,sheep, even down to terrapins, which required a wide variation of duties to ensure their well being. Also while in Spain I worked in the local Spanish vets as a receptionist and nurse. My duties included taking care of sick animals
in the hospital as well as administering medication and injections, assisting in operations and also the daily routine of pets and owners visiting us for check-ups etc.
We have met many owners and their pets in this line of work and have a total understanding of the personal 1 to 1 care involved keeping beloved pets in their own environment while their owners are away. Also from our experience of housesitting, we can reassure you that your home will be well taken care of while you are away. We have excellent references for you to read and follow up. These references include work, housesitting and personal. Since Christmas 2013 we had sat [from this forum] in Britain/France/Spain/China/Canada/States.

Debbie & Eddie have house sat for us for 3 years running at our remote house in France. They have coped with all the peculiarities of our house & dogs. The dogs are always sad when we return as they have been so well cared for, Debbie especially connects with them. This year our young Beauceron developed epilepsy a week before our departure date. Had it been anyone else house sitting we would have cancelled but Debbie is so practical with animals that we/they got through the 3 weeks with fits. Eddie copes with the woodburner fuelled heating, which isn't for everyone. I would not hesitate in recommending them as house/pet sitters.They come to us in January/February so nothing to do re-house or garden & am only interested in the dogs being well cared for, not work being done, which is the only reason I haven't ticked the bottom 2 boxes. Do contact me if you need more info.
Debbie and Eddie sat for us for 2 weeks over Christmas. Their communication before they arrived was great and as seasoned house sitters they know what to ask and we felt confident leaving them in charge. The night before we went one of our 4 cats went lame so Debbie accompanied me to the vets. Turned out she has previous experience as a veterinary nurse so was well equipped to look after him as he recovered. I can recommend Debbie and Eddie as friendly, capable and trustworthy and I wouldn't hesitate to ask them to sit for us again
Eddie & Debbie proved themselves to be very competent sitters. A mature & friendly couple, they kept in touch prior to the sit & were confident & independent whilst with us. We left on holiday with no doubt that our critters would be very well cared for & returned home to a cooked meal! I would definitely have them back & recommend their sitting services to other home owners. Thanks both!
