What can they bring to the assignment

-Reliable, responsible, and I take care of your home and furry family members as if they were my own. :)

-30+ years experience as a house/pet/plant sitter.

-Intuitive bond/connection with most animals. I get along great with dogs. But I have a special connection with cats. I'm a bit of a "cat whisperer"..even feral, shy, and cranky senior cats tend to be quite responsive to me. ;)

-Experienced with elderly and special needs animals.

-Worked many summers on a CT dairy farm that has been in our family for five generations (experienced with farming and farm animals).

-Skilled gardener with indoor and outdoor plants (including vegetable gardening), and I also have worked at a plant nursery.

-Have owned, cared for, and managed real estate in multiple countries.

- Collector of vintage modern furniture. So you can rest assured that I take the highest care of home furnishings and NEVER set down a beverage without a coaster. ;)

-Know how to maintain a home swimming pool, unfortunately!

-Equally comfortable in rural and urban settings, from a small village to an urban metropolis.

-Adapt easily to new situations, languages, and cultures.

- Have worked/studied/traveled in many parts of the world, including the United States, Canada, Europe, and Central and South America.

Great Sitter

Wendy went above and beyond while we were away for a couple of weeks to care of our house and 2 dogs. She is extremely communicative which we loved, it made us feel safe and secure knowing our home and pups were in good hands. Attentive, clean, and trustworthy. She took great care of everything which allowed us to relax and enjoy our trip. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of someone they can count on. Thank you Wendy!!

First time having a house sitter, we are glad it was Wendy!

Wendy was exactly the sitter we were looking for, happy, organized, loving with our dog and reliable. She took care of our dog and house in Austin Texas for three weeks. She kept us informed of everything and that was really appreciated. Our dog truly missed her after leaving. Totally recommended if you are looking for a house sitter! Thank you Wendy!

House sitting in Oslo summer 2016

Wendy looked after our house in Oslo with our dog Snoopy (12yr beagle) and cat Willy for three weeks in the summer. This was not an easy house sit for many reasons but Wendy did extremely well and we highly recommend her to any other House owners that match her needs. We came home to a house much cleaner than we left and two healthy animals but I am not sure she will be volunteering to look after any more old beagles again. We wish her the very best of luck with her future house sitting adventures and hope one day she will be able to visit us in Norway again soon.
