Introduction

I am now retired after working for the past twenty-two years as Senior Finance Officer in a Sixth Form College and my husband is a retired Music Lecturer. We are able to offer short or medium term sitting and have previously looked after houses and pets in the U.K, France and Australia and would be happy to provide references as required. We have a three year old Irish Terrier who is very at home with other dogs both large and small so we would hope to be able to bring him with us to any house sitting in the future.

Why I want to housesit

We love seeing new places but have always preferred renting property for our holidays as we like the freedom this gives us. House sitting gives us the opportunity to enjoy different areas of the U.K. and abroad without spending too much of our pension!

What I bring to the assignment / relevant experience

Although in our 'senior years' we are both physically fit and are experienced in D.I.Y., gardening and pet care so are able to deal with any unexpected 'emergencies'. We can offer you complete peace of mind when leaving your home and/or cherished pets knowing we will care for them as we would our own.

You could not wish for a more respectiful couple to look after your home and animals. They cared for our house and garden whilst we were away, even cleaning the oven! The animals were at complete ease with them and we felt very happy that they would be well looked after during our hoilday.

I have known Anne & Dennis for thirty-five years, and have no hesitation in recommending them. They are real dog lovers who will look after your treasured pet as if it were their own. In fact my own dog can't wait to greet them when he goes on his holidays!

Anne and Dennis did a great job looking after our pets, plants and house. The cats are high maintenance, requiring injections and special diets, but they were obviously well loved. The house was spotless on our return and I have no hesitation in recommending them for house-sitting.

My wife and I have no hesitation in recommending Anne and Dennis in every aspect after they looked after our dog Daisy and cat Sophie,staying at our house some weeks ago.
Their warmth and expertise with dogs transmitted itself to Daisy immediately and it was clear that she had had a great time with Anne and Dennis when we came back from holiday. Sophie the cat was similarly content and our house was immaculate upon our return.

Anne and Dennis cared for my home and my black lab while I was abroad. They were delightful and my dog was clearly comfortable around them from the moment they arrived in the house. When I returned, everything was beautifully clean and tidy - even the sheets were washed ! Thank you both so much.

We were first time users of THS, looking for a two week break without our adorable but still semi-trained and quite demanding young Labradoodle. AnnieG and her husband turned out to be the perfect combination, bringing experience and expertise to the task. We returned from our holiday to find the house and garden immaculate, and Millie a calmer and contented dog. She misses her playmate, Irish terrier Flynn, but they plan to meet up before to long...
