About this sitter

As former house and pet owners we understand what it's like to leave our home and beloved pets with strangers. We know first hand the concerns and even the fears that accompany having someone house and pet sit for us.
Will our pets be well cared for and loved the way we love them? Will our home and our possessions be safe? Will our plants be alive when we return? Will our house be dirty or stink?
Will anything be broken or stolen? Will the house sitter be able to handle an emergency?
Karen and I are mature, responsible and trustworthy people with house and pet sitting experience. We are a very healthy and young couple, in our 50s, and have been married for 32 years. We are non smokers and non drinkers and we are neat and tidy. I am very handy and after managing people and assets throughout my career I am very capable of handling any emergency that may arise.
We are recently retired and traveling through the means of house and pet sitting.
Leaving your home, your beloved pet(s) and your possessions with us means that you will be able to leave your worries as well. When you return your pet(s) will be loved and happy and your home will be clean and exactly the way you left it.
We look forward to speaking with you.

Why they want to house sit

We plan to spend the foreseeable future traveling and immersing ourselves in the local cultures through house and pet sitting.

Their experience

We do have experience house and pet sitting.

What can they bring to the assignment

As a former general manager I have extensive experience and success in managing people and assets including facilities. I am very proficient in handling multiple issues and dealing with emergencies. Having owned several homes and taking care of all of our home maintenance I am very capable of taking care of anything in and around the home as well as pool and spa maintenance.
Karen was a homemaker and raised our two wonderful children. She is fantastic at keeping our home clean and tidy. Karen is also "the animal whisperer". Lol. We haven't met an animal yet that doesn't warm up to her immediately and we both enjoy having pets as companions.
Together and with our experience as home and pet owners and our experience as house and pet sitters we are completely confident in our ability to take care of any home and pet(s).
