About this sitter

I am a retired school teacher, having worked in the USA and abroad in several countries (Syria, Zambia. China, Israel, and Turkey). I love to travel and meet new people and I adapt well to new surroundings.
I would prefer to be in a city but am not opposed to house sitting in the country if it's the right fit. My two most important criteria would be safety and cleanliness. I am a non-smoker and fully vaccinated.

Why they want to house sit

I recently 'retired' due to COVID and am looking to house/pet sit. I think house/pet sitting would be a wonderful opportunity to help someone and at the same time explore another part of the world or more of the USA. I love animals and have always had a pet or two -- dogs and cats mostly but also rabbits.

Their experience

I have house/pet sat for various people mainly friends. See references.

What can they bring to the assignment

I am an experienced traveler, having lived in 5 different countries and visited 52 countries in my various travels.
I am a native English speaker and also speak fluent German.
I keep a clean house and enjoy being outdoors (pets would certainly get their exercise).

Testimonials

March 2024 N Scottsdale AZ

Sabine was awesome and provided excellent care for our 2 dogs (and our home)! The communication leading up to and during the sit was outstanding and I appreciated her attention to detail. She provided twice daily walks and medication as directed. I think my dogs were very spoiled and will miss her! Would recommend and have her back again.

Couldn't ask for more

Sabine was amazing in looking after my creatures and home. She was responsive in communication and sent photos of my cats often which let me know that they were loved and cared for. When I returned the house was spotless and she even made sure I had my necessities in the fridge. She has my highest recommendation. Nothing broke in the house but I think she has the potential to solve just about any problem that would arise

Cat, fish, & house sitter

Sabine has done a lot of travel and came highly recommended, even though she hadn't been on MindMyHouse for very long. She sat for us for 3 weeks, in the winter, in Minnesota, while we we out of the country. The cats and fish were happy & healthy when we returned. The house plants were well cared for and the house was nicely cleaned. She shared a few cat photos with us and stayed in good connection with us as necessary while we were gone. We'd be happy to have her house sit for us again!

If you want someone that is reliable, knowledgeable, agreeable, and motivated, look no further…you’ve found her!

I can’t say enough good things about Sabine! She’s bright, cheerful, and really interacts well with pets. I have had Sabine house sit for me numerous times over years, many times for several months at a time. My dogs love her and my cats seem happier when she’s housesitting than when I am home! She spends lots of time with your pets, taking care of their emotional and physical needs with ease. She also is very good with plants and put her green thumb to good use! She is a neat and tidy person and the house always looks better when I return than when I left. (And I keep a clean house!) If you want someone that is reliable, knowledgeable, agreeable, and motivated, look no further…you’ve found her!
