About this sitter

Hello! Nice to meet you! I'm a resourceful and mature person with years of TLC sitting experience. I'm looking for longer-term house sits.

Why they want to house sit

I want to house sit as I'm wishing to have new adventures. This includes travelling and meeting new people. I'm looking forward sharing some time with pets! Cuddles included. I also want to reduce my costs for a few years so that I can buy my own property.

Their experience

I have 8+ years of professional experience house and pet sitting. I'm the go-to sitter for my friends and other families. My sitting experience includes looking after houses in all seasons, gardening/work outdoors including grass cutting and shovelling snow, starting and moving vehicles, gathering mail and receiving packages, putting out the garbage/recycling/compost, looking after indoor plants, and animal care for pets in all stages of life. I've had cats of my own and have been a foster mother to cats and dogs. Some people I sit for wish for me to update them weekly on their pets and home, others want no updates. Whatever you wish! I treat a home and pets like they are my own--with love and respect.

What can they bring to the assignment

I am a very caring, giving, and responsible person with a can-do and positive attitude. I'm happy to stay within Canada or sit abroad. I have studied and lived overseas numerous times, and I find it a welcome change to immerse myself into a new culture. I also can speak French.

The ideal house sitter!

Arlene was so good to my sweet but admittedly insane dog, Dee. She didn't mind the barking fits and kept me updated. Dee really grew attached to her - slept in her bed and everything! I will definitely use Arlene again. Thanks for watering the plants and leaving the house so tidy, too!
