First of all, we have been vaccinated against the Covid virus, so able to travel as required. We are retired, responsible, non-smoking, active couple that have experience house sitting in various parts of the world. When we are not on a house sitting assignment we professionally dog sit in our own home.
We prefer engagements of a month or more, with or without pets, and very good with household pets since we professionally dog sit off of the Rover web site. Our maturity and home ownership is a strong asset we bring to you as we care for your property. We have never had a police action against us and enjoy a very high credit score indicating our responsible financially. We own my own home, and have no other debt that needs to be service and enjoy travel benefits as part of our retirement. When we commit to being at you home on a certain date, you can count on us being there so you can plan your travel without worrie.
We are retired and enjoy traveling. Our reason for traveling is to enjoy and discover different cultures while meeting the people of local population. We have had our own home for all of our adult life and have become very handy should difficulties arise, so we know how to handle home issues should they arise. We have travel benefits from our retirement so we can by air to anywhere in the world, so if we commit to be your house sitter, we will be there and you can rest assured that your home will be treated like our own.
In addition to owning our own home, we have been housesitting for over 6 years many places in the USA and Canada. Our international house sitting assignment have been in the countries of Austriala, Fiji, Switzerland, Portugal, Greece, Germany New Zealand, and Hungry. 2020 was a year with only minimal assignments, but we recently received our COVID-19 vaccination and are ready to move forward with new assignments. We make every attempt to learn the language and customs of the country we visit and have been able to satisfy our hosts with our flexibility and care.
Certainly our experience in home ownership, as an owner of pets and as professional dog sitters. We have lived and worked around all kind of domesticated animals from cats, dogs, birds, and some farm animals, chickens, horses and cattle. We will treat your property as own and take care of any pets left in our watch. We are walkers so walking dogs daily is what we enjoy doing whenever possible. Honesty and well rounded experience is what we offer for your peace of mind while you are away.

Ron and his wife stayed at my house for over two weeks and took wonderful care of my elderly dog as well as a puppy. The pup was fully exercised every day. Ron also was conscientious about watering the garden areas and minding the hoses when the weather turned cold. He was a great communicator, sending notes every few days on how the dogs were faring along with pictures and a video. I was very comfortable leaving my home and pets in Ron's care.
We had a great experience with Ron caring for our pets and our home over the summer. He took great care of our dog, taking her for at least two long walk daily and was sweet and caring with our cat. They were both very comfortable and happy with him. He also sent us photos and updates of their activities. He did an excellent job tending to our garden. He kept everything green and healthy during a hot/dry summer. He cut the grass regularly, trimmed the bushes and even planted some flowers. It is great to return home to a healthy garden at the end of the summer. The house was spotless when we returned home. He went way beyond the basics in his cleaning. He cleaned the fronts of all the cabinets, all the appliances, everything. He had even washed his towels and bed sheets on the day he departed. Ron got along very well with my neighbors while he was here. They saw him regularly as he frequently walked the dog and worked in the garden. I would strongly recommend Ron for any House sitting or Pet sitting jobs. We would be happy to have him back again.
Ron house and cat-sat for us recently and we were absolutely delighted. Our cats were very comfortable with him, the house was tidy and taken care of, and the yard was looking very pretty! Despite some awful smokey air due to the forest fires in BC, and some non-stop talking from our cat Spicey, Ron appeared to have enjoyed his stay here, and we were very pleased. Would thoroughly recommend Ron and would love to have him back some time!
