About this sitter

We are an active, semi-retired couple, happily living in the Okanagan,and looking to spend more time near the ocean!

Why they want to house sit

We've had house/dog sitters of our own in the past and know how important it is to feel that your pet and home are being will cared for. While we love having animals around, we are currently enjoying the freedom between pets. Our experience through Mindmyhouse has shown us that we can thoroughly fall in love with animals belonging to other people. So much, that we will probably make return trips in the future just because we want to spend time with them again.

Their experience

We have taken care of many dogs over the years, some for months at a time and have had our own lab-goldie cross for the last 13 years until we said 'goodbye' recently. We enjoy taking good care of our own home and property and occasionally look after neighbours' homes and pets. We really enjoyed our experiences in Britain this past winter through "Mind My House" (please notice our testimonials).

What can they bring to the assignment

Loving care for animals, great handyman skills (Mick is a millwright and does all of our home and car maintenance), garden care. We are fit and love walking, especially with dogs!

Perfect House Sitters

Mick and Julie are a delightful couple, we loved their company and they did a perfect job of looking after everything while were away. The dogs really missed them when they left, and our hens were in excellent shape despite dreadful weather while we were away. We overlapped for a couple of days at each end of their stay and we missed them too once they left, they are a kind, considerate, practical and extremely competent couple, so any little issues that arose were dealt with perfectly. We only wished they weren't on the far side of Canada so we could see them more often! We would thoroughly recommend Mick and Julie to anyone who would be lucky enough to use them.

Fantastic house sitters

Mick and Julie recently minded our 4 Golden Retrievers and our aging cat. They were fantastic. We went away with confidence that our pets would be looked after as well as we do or better! They were all very relaxed when we returned. Mick and Julie were also wonderful house guests and left he house tidier than it was before we left. We would love to have them back to sit for us in the future or to stay as guests.

Simply the best!

Not only did I instantly feel certain that my dog Rolo would be well looked after in my absence and that he would be given an amazing time, within 24 hours of their arrival they looked after me very well when I had an accident! I have no hesitation in utterly recommending Mick and Julie to look after your pets and home.
