About this sitter

We are Sally and Sam and we are a couple in our 30's who have been married for over 10 years. Having spent the past ten years building our careers, buying our home and enjoying married life we are now ready for new experiences and adventure.

I am a housing officer in tenancy management and Sam is a landscape gardener who has his own gardening business with his brother.

Why they want to house sit

My husband and I are looking to gain experience of house sitting in the UK with a view to travel further afield in the coming years

Their experience

Before joining mind my house we had previously looked after the homes and pets of friends and relatives. This included having their pets stay in our home or if it's more convenient (such as it was for some tortoises we looked after) we would stay in their home.

Since joining we have had a variety of enjoyable sits and have looked after animals such as dogs, cats, ducks, birds and even a couple of foxes!

I (Sally) am experienced in volunteering to walk and board dogs and various other animals and love learning about them! I am also trained in canine first aid.

What can they bring to the assignment

We are considerate of people's homes and always prioritise the pets we look after.

I especially enjoy looking after senior dogs since my best furfriend passed away at the grand old age of 17. I find that compared to the sprightly young pups I look after, my old boy needed things at a slower pace and had different dietary and medical needs which requires a deeper understanding from a care giver.

But we have looked after dogs of all ages and other animals including reptiles and will not shy away from any experience.

Testimonials

Brilliant Housesitters!

Sally and Sam looked after our 2 African Grey parrots, Ashton our family friendly cat and her Ferrell mother Charlie and our assortment of friendly tame foxes with ease! Sally kept in daily contact with us whilst we were abroad, sending little anecdotes and photos of our furry family which is always to me, such a help to know everyone is fine! The house was immaculate on our return and our plants were watered. I will definitely ask them to housesit again, please feel free to contact me if you would like any further information
