PhD in hanging out with pets!

Oakville, ON, Canada

About

Hi! My name is Barbara and I’m a retired visual arts teacher from Oakville, Ontario, Canada- just starting out with Trusted Housesitters. Pets were always a big part of our family when my son was growing up - 14 dogs, 5 cats, 3 horses, 1

Why I want to house sit

I think housesitting is a great way to experience new places off the beaten track. I love travel but I hate tourists and crowds and fake culture. I know if you came to my home in Oakville you’d see a totally different Canada than if you

My experience

I’ve raised horses for years- Missouri Foxtrotters- and raised, rescued and trained (with various degrees of success haha) 14 dogs and 3 cats. I think that sharing my life with animals has added a dimension to my life a non -pet owner
