About this sitter

Hello everyone!

Our names are Daniel & Shawna and we are a travel loving, animal loving, non-smoking, and responsible couple who would be thrilled at the opportunity to be your house sitters. I (Daniel) am venturing into the world of freelance writing and this has given me the opportunity to explore more of this amazing world. Shawna has flexible work as well as she is an actress/model in the SAG-AFTRA union. We are both animal lovers, and we have experience caring for dogs & cats for family/friends. I always had a pet dog in the house ever since a young age and part of my responsibilities included feeding/brushing/playing with our pet dogs. For Shawna, her love of animals started when she was a little kid as she brought in stray dogs into her house to care for them. She has always had a nurturing spirit towards animals/people, especially as they age. She grew up with a variety of pets. She even worked at a dog spa in New York City for a little while until it unfortunately could not afford the New York City rent expense.

We love exploring the world and seeing new places together, and we would be excited about the opportunity to look after your house and/or pets while we visit your amazing country.

We each have references available upon request. We look forward to speaking with you!

Why they want to house sit

House sitting is a wonderful opportunity for Shawna and I to see the world and take care of wonderful pets at the same time. We now both have the flexibility to travel more frequently and we both love taking care of pets when the opportunity presents itself. House sitting provides the chance to do both things at the same time, and Shawna and I are actively looking for house sitting opportunities.

Their experience

We are experienced taking care of dogs & cats as we have been around both throughout our lives. As mentioned, I (Daniel) always had one or multiple dogs in the house to care for growing up and Shawna had a variety of pets growing up. She has taken care of her friends' pets and worked at a dog spa in the past as well.

What can they bring to the assignment

We bring a warm, nurturing environment for your pet(s) and we will care for them like they are our own. Shawna and I are responsible and will respect all wishes of the homeowner whose house we are watching. Neither one of us smoke so there will be no issues if that is a concern.

Testimonials

Daniel and Shawna reliable house sitters.

We listed our post not long time before our holidays. And we easily managed to agree with Daniel about his and Shawna arrival. Communication was very clear and all went according to the plan. We spent one evening together in our house and had chance to exchange points of view and talk about the best movies. We went for holidays and we didn't have to think much about our cat and garden. We arrived after Daniel and Shawna departure and everything was in order. Thank you!

Great house sitters

Daniel and Shawna are a lovely, friendly couple who did a great job of looking after my beloved Daisy :) - all communication prior to sitting was smooth and speedy. Daniel&Shawna took on board my requirements for Daisy and totally fulfilled them, keeping me up to date with regular pics of their activities. The house was tidy and clean on my return and it was clear that Daisy felt very at home with them and well cared for. Can highly recommend them for any future sittings and would welcome them back any time :)

Daniel and Shawna

Daniel and Shawna minded my dog Molly and cat Tiger in July. They sent lovely photos and videos while I was away and followed care instructions to the letter. They even brought Molly on one of their sight seeing trips which she would have loved. I missed them by a few hours on my return but they sent a follow up text to check if pets were ok when I got home.

Friendly, reliable house & pet sitters

Daniel and Shawna took great care of our cats and apartment while we were away. They paid great attention to details and were very careful to take care of the cats exactly how we asked them to. We were away for about 3 weeks, and they sent us detailed updates on how the cats are doing regularly, usually with pictures. We were happy to meet them, and definitely recommend Daniel and Shawna as great pet&house sitters. They are friendly, reliable, tidy and they treated our cats and the apartment with great love, care and respect.

Daniel and Shawna

In September I went away for a week and Shawna and Daniel stepped in to care for my dog, miners true donkey Pumpkin and horse Vinnie. Vinnie is a large thoroughbred who is not an easy keeper and needs 2 meals a day. Shawna and Daniel were very diligent and caring during their stay and things went so well. I was thrilled! They sent me some photos they had taken and there were my horse and donkey out mowing the lawn, perfect! I totally appreciated their care and love of my home and animals.

Caring and conscientious couple

It was a pleasure to meet Daniel and Shawna. They obviously love animals and were extremely caring with all our pets. They were very conscientious and made sure that they understood the various requirements of our cats and dog and looked after our home as if it were their own. They kindly came to our house the day before the sit started and also waited up for our rather late return home. We would be happy to recommend Daniel and Shawna.
