About this sitter

We are a french couple, around 64 years old. We had always pets in our house; they are joyfull life companions. We enjoyed several travels around the world, and we had very nice pet sitting experiences in Canada, Australia, Brasil, Vietnam and USA. We're looking for beeing happy with pets in a nice and interesting location, and making cordial relationship with people.

Why they want to house sit

We want to housesit because it's an appreciable experience in our life; we like pets and people, while discovering new locations.
We want to make pets happy; we have currently one dog, Toupie. In the past we had always dogs and a cat. We're also simply happy to get to know each other, through the world.

Their experience

We had very positive experiences : in Vancouver, with a dog (Farley), and a cat (Meekus). We have been fully autonomus.
The contact with the owners, Lisa and Randy, was very nice, and they made a very good review of our stay.
We had another great experience at Niteroi/Rio de Janeiro State in Feb. 2019. 5 lovely dogs, living mainly outdoor; please see the 5 stars review.
We went in Australia in Oct 2019, with a sweet Labrador, and a cat. Here also, we received a so friendly review from Simon & Mel.
Our two last petsits were in Vietnam, and in Florida-USA., and the reviews were once again really positive.
We runned in the past a B&B in our big house in France/Alsace, so we have also a lot of reviews on this side, showing who we are, and how is our household.
Making owners, pets, and ourself happy with all these experiences is important for us. The testimonials and references are just bellow.

What can they bring to the assignment

We can bring confidence, as we are reliable, and care the house and the pets like ours, looking after their needs and giving them affection. As we needed also in the past pet sitters for our own house and pets, when going abroad, we understand what are the expectations, and we're proud to honor them.
We are fully vaccinated against Covid

Nice couple, my dog loved them

They took great care of my dog, Shep. They sent me regular updates and I felt very good about having them watch my house.

Great sitters - look no further !

We thoroughly recommend Sylvain and Marcelle as house and dog sitters. They are a very pleasant couple, very reliable, tidy and conscientious. From the outset, we were confident that our home and our dogs would be well looked after. They are independent enough to get on with things, to resolve any problems arising, to get out and about, and for surviving in a new and very different location. They are both charming people, very good company, very “simpatico”, and are very competent in English. And it’s clear that they love dogs. They kept us in touch as to the dogs’ wellbeing and any issues arising. We would have them back in an instant – we spent some happy times together at the start and end of their stay. If you are looking for reliable and pleasant house/dog sitters, look no further !
