About this sitter

We love to be around animals and the outdoors, and house sitting would be a great way to do this. Chris has been around animals all his life, growing up on a farm, showing cattle, studying animal science and working as an animal health expert for 40+years.
I teach part time (have police clearance certificate for teaching), love meeting locals, and love animals. Hablo espanol.
We do not smoke, we do not drink (much), we have drivers licenses--we are your perfect guests.

Why they want to house sit

Recently retired, we love to travel. We have been living and working in Dubai for the past 4 years. We prefer to experience the local culture and community rather than be a tourist. We love the outdoors--Chris competes in cycling, and I organize annual hiking trips for women.

Their experience

We just joined this website, but have house and dog sat many times. We own 2 homes in the USA (Vail, CO and VT) and have also done over 25 home exchanges (sometimes taking care of their pets on the exchange). I also volunteered at a dog shelter in Dubai.

What can they bring to the assignment

We have a lifetime of experience with large and small animals. Chris has worked in Veterinary Medicine (with Merck Animal Health) for 40+ years. Also we have owned our own farms in Maryland, MI, MO and NY State with dogs, cats, 300+ sheep, 6 horses, pigs, chickens and goats. Chris can fix most anything and I am an avid gardener (Master Gardener certificate). We will take excellent care of your home.
