We are a quiet and considerate married couple. We are both non-smokers. We love animals (pets & wildlife) and enjoy all that life has to offer. Al recently retired from a 32 year career with the National Park Service (Grand Teton National Park). Michele has worked for the National Park Service for 22 years (Grand Canyon NP, Grand Teton NP, Wupatki NM) and currently works at Grand Teton National Park on a seasonal basis. We have held various positions during our time with the National Park Service, though primarily focused on Historic Preservation (Al) and Native Plant Restoration (Michele). We have had pets (dogs, cats, rabbits, turtles, rats, ducks, etc.) since we were kids! Pet sitting & house sitting is also something we have both thoroughly enjoyed over the years. We are open to any type of house and pet sitting scenario. We are very clean and tidy, as well as being capable of "handyman" type tasks. We prefer isolated and rural areas, but are open to anything, anywhere!
We would love to give back! Having had the need for pet and house sitters over the years, we understand how important it is to feel comfortable when leaving your home and animals. We are currently pet free and thought we would take advantage of the opportunity to embark on some travels. We would love an opportunity to provide home/pet owners with peace of mind while they are away. And of course we'd love to spend time with your animal family!
Al was the caretaker for a private ranch within Grand Teton National Park for 31 years. We both have experience in house sitting, pet sitting, plant care, and everything else that goes with home and pet ownership. As National Park Service employees, we both went through an extensive background investigation process before being hired.
We are both capable problem solvers. We can offer home and pet owners peace of mind while they are away. We are clean, organized, respectful, and will follow the rules. And of course we will give your animals lots of loving care and attention!

Michele and Al looked after my cat Monkey, as well as my aquarium fish and my plants. We had great communication before and during my trip, and as based on what i saw when i returned, I could not have done a better job myself. Regular updates, solution oriented petsitting, happy cat, plants were cared for, in short, i could not have wished for better people to stay at my house. The house was clean when i returned, bed linens washed (!!!), Monkey was purring, well fed and happy. Thank you sooooo much. You are truly the best. i travel a lot and you were really the best. Also thank you for some inventive solutions around the house!
