About this sitter

We have been married for 40 years and are both pensioned retirees from Canadian transportation and government employers. We're looking for opportunities to bless others by providing loving care to homeowners' animals and property as if they were our own. We're non-smokers, non-drinkers, non-partiers and respectful of others' homes and property.

Why they want to house sit

We are new to the concept of international housesitting and are looking forward to visiting other parts of the world and meeting a variety of people and pets.

Their experience

Both of us have a variety of experience with animals, ranging from training two Labradors and having farm dogs and cats. We have some experience with a variety of farm animals as well. When our children were young, we had hamsters, dog and bird. Several times we have pet-sat for friends who have rabbits, dogs and a budgie. We have enjoyed house sitting for several families on two other house sites, all with five star reviews. We have a house sit coming up in Barbados and we hope to expand our international house sitting experiences! Our anniversary is coming up in July and would love to be in Europe to celebrate!

Example #1 'When we met Maureen and Rod we knew they were a perfect match to our needs. There was no anxiety with the pets when we returned from our vacation, everyone was calm. They are very easy going and communicated well during our holiday. We would not hesitate to ask them again. Highly recommend. Thank you so much Maureen and Rod.'
Example #2: Maureen and Rod have looked after our house and pets twice now and we wouldn't hesitate to ask them again! They are friendly, kind, considerate, trustworthy, and our pets adore them. They always leave our house immaculate and our pets very happy.

What can they bring to the assignment

We are very responsible home owners who have raised three children who are on their own. A side-line home renovation business has proven to be worthwhile in providing clients in our community with the satisfaction of repairs and maintenance being done with talent and experience. Many years in an administrative role has provided me with a wealth of knowledge on managing routines and systems and I believe both of us as a team could offer you peace of mind knowing that your beloved home and pets will be well looked after.
