About this sitter

First off, we are fully vaccinated and boosted. We take precautions such as N95 masking, ordering food online and picking up, avoiding gatherings/events, and indoor spaces. We are retired, have college degrees, healthy and active. Hobbies include running, hiking, biking, reading, photography, birding, organic gardening, traveling,violin/mandolin/clarinet, painting/crafts etc. We prefer a rural, quiet setting on acreage but small towns/cities have an appeal also. The ideal would include nearby nature preserves, forest, parks, run/'walk path nearby to explore, yet not too far from cultural events like theater, music, art, etc. We moved from the U.P. of Michigan to a milder climate, N.Central Arkansas. We have additional ref's on another website that we can provide. Here is a couple of them:

Wendy & Dennis,
We want to thank you for looking after our pups/cats and house. The house looked amazing when we returned this aft. Everything was so neat and tidy. We are drop dead tired and it was so nice to come into the house and see everything sparkling. The dogs were happy and well treated (with much much thanks). The cats greeted us when we drove up.
Our plane was delayed in SFO due to fog so we rented a car and drove home. I will definitely give you 10 thumbs up if you ever need a house-sitting review.
Hope your trip to Penn Valley went ok.

With much much thanks,
Donna

To:Dennis Beaupre,Wendy Paton Beaupre

Dennis and Wendy Beaupre took care of our home and animals for 4 months during the winter here in Prescott Arizona. They were a good team and very thorough in feeding and watering our horses, chickens , cat and 2 big dogs. They were consistent in taking the dogs for hikes every day . Upon our return we found the house very clean and even the windows
were done. Dennis proved very handy with taking care of little problems with the house . The neighbors told us that they enjoyed talking to them and had them over for dinner. For the little time we had with them personally, we found them to be very likable and down to earth people.
We would love to have them back here again for another winter or other trip if possible. We have had several house-sitters in the past and we would put these folks at the top of the list.

Why they want to house sit

To experience and explore new areas of the country while making new friends, human and animal.

Testimonials

A Fabulous Housesitting Pair - 5 Stars!

Dennis and Wendy took excellent care of our home and four-cat family. They are easy to work with and extremely reliable. We have worked with many house sitters over the years and I realize that I have very high standards. Dennis and Wendy met all of my expectations and then someā€”from the care they took to provide references in a timely fashion, to their attention as I went over my booklet of instructions that I've compiled over the years, to the easy way they had with my felines. They are both so mature and capable that I knew my home would be in good hands. I take great pains to leave the house extremely clean and in good order and they left it the same. We'd be very happy to have them return for a future visit.

House Sitters Extraodinaire!

I'm so glad I found Dennis & Wendy to house sit while I was away over Christmas. I was gone for almost 4 weeks, and felt very comfortable the whole time that our pets were being looked after as well as if we were there! They treated them like their own and weren't put off at all by the fact that we had 4 cats, including two, 5-month-old kittens, and a dog (who became very attached to Dennis ????). I would highly recommend them to anyone who's looking to leave their home in the safe hands of reliable house sitters!

Outstanding House Sitters

Dennis and Wendy did an outstanding job house sitting for us. They communicated with us before, during and after the house sit. They arrived when they were supposed to. They stayed throughout the scheduled house sit even though a family emergency came up during the house sit. They did an amazing job of cleaning the house just before they left. We had one dog for them to look after. They did a great job with her. She misses them.

Great Sitters - Will Use Again

Wendy and Dennis recently watched our dog and our home for a week. They were friendly, dependable, clean, and the dog enjoyed having them here. They stayed in contact with me and sent pictures letting me know how and what Coco was doing. The house was cleaner when I came home than it was when I left. They are very trustworthy and we will definitely use them again!
