About this sitter

We are a part-time remote therapist and consultant couple, with a passion for nature, travel, home-architecture, and animals [former animal shelter (mainly dogs and cats) volunteers]. We’re seeking to serve those in need of reliable, caring, positive, and trustworthy house-sitters and pet-sitters. We’re both fully vaccinated and double boosted! We’ve completed background checks via FBI and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for Global Entry & TSA Precheck, which allows us to travel efficiently anywhere in the world a home owner may need us. We value establishing long-term relationships with home-owners who may need us more than once to care for their homes and pets.

Why they want to house sit

We want to house sit because we love to travel and take good care of other people’s homes and pets. We've enjoyed house-sitting for family and friends for years, as well as in a professional capacity. As we've continued to venture outside of the United States for work and leisure, our interest has grown in learning about and honoring different regions, cultures, people, foods, customs, animals/pets, and practices around the world. House sitting allows us to give home-owners peace of mind while they’re away, comfort and care for animals in their own homes, as well as offset some of our own travel-related costs. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Their experience

We’ve had pets of our own (dogs, cats, bunnies, hamsters, gerbils, fish, etc.), as well as cared for pets of friends and family during day visits and long-term house sits. We've also volunteered at local animal shelters and completed house-sits/pet-sits that were paid and unpaid, depending on the specific circumstances.

What can they bring to the assignment

People would describe us as excellent communicators, who are mature, responsible, kind, organized, friendly, and respectful of people's belongings, pets, homes, and privacy. Having pets of our own in the past, we have experience caring for them, socializing them, playing with them, training them (upon special request), and looking after their overall well-being [feeding, cleaning, walking, giving meds, etc.]. We've owned our own home for over 10 years. Our experience traveling abroad and house sitting has prepared us to navigate and feel comfortable in different environments. We can spend a significant amount of time away from home with relative ease. We come as a couple on assignments. We look forward to an opportunity to sit for you soon!

Testimonials

Jen and Jay were fantastic!

Jen and Jay had excellent communication throughout their entire stay at my home with my cat. They kept me updated (with pictures!) their entire stay without me having to ask. My cat enjoyed having them here so much that he has been sitting outside their bedroom door waiting for them to come play with him... he is sad they had to leave! They stayed in my home several days after I returned and I really enjoyed getting to spend time with them and get to know them. They are both very friendly and easy to talk with. They even bought him a new toy and washed and dried the bedsheets before leaving. I highly recommend having Jen and Jay as pet/house sitters!

Wonderful experience with Jen and Jay!

Jen and Jay were great guests in our home and for our cat. Communication before, during (and after!) was just great. We were able to coordinate airport pickups and drop offs for us both and able to spend some time with them in our home before we left. Their care and compassion to our (special needs!) cat was amazing. The kitty was given great care, attention and lots of petting. They were great with her meds and even coordinated with us when the cat took a slight turn downhill. It was a great peace of mind to know that our cat was getting such great care. We returned to a clean and tidy house - complete with fresh homemade brownies and hummus for us! What a treat!
