We are a professional couple from Ireland and Canada who love animals and are free to travel anywhere in the world to pet and house sit for you. Both self employed and working from home, we have experience, references and police checks available upon request. We are both very much into health and fitness so we do not smoke and very rarely drink. Sarah has volunteered at an animal shelter in Vancouver, Canada for the BCSPCA and currently volunteers for Auckland Zoo, in New Zeland. We have house sat a Bed and Breakfast for a couple in Tilburg, The Netherlands and can provide a reference from this.
Why we want to house sit
We are now both self-employed and free to travel anywhere in the world. Both growing up with a variety of different pets and being animal lovers, we find that we miss the company of animals while being away from home. We found that house and pet sitting was the perfect fit, and it is an added bonus that we can bring peace of mind to you while you are away from your house and cherished pets, knowing that we would treat both as if it was our own home and beloved pets.
Having worked at various different jobs both being paid and volunteer positions, I have always loved being around and caring for animals, both domesticated, farm and wild. Working in horse stables, cleaning, training, feeding horses gave me great confidence in interacting with large animals. Also working at dog shows and different kennels, I gained much experience with different dog breeds and many different personality types, I can safely say I have never came across two animals with the same character. Then working with many different varieties of fury and feathered animals at a very large pet store, my work included, feeding, cleaning, training and caring for a long list of different types of birds, reptiles, hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, degos, rats, hedgehogs and many more. Then from volunteering with the SPCA both BC SPCA and I SPCA working with all kinds of animals. Only this time most of the animals I worked with had a rough start out in life and required extra love, patience and encouragement to get their confidence back to be able to fine a new forever home. Sarah currently volunteers with Auckland Zoo, in New Zealand. We have successfully completed house sits in Tilburg, The Netherlands and have recently returned to the site and will have references up soon. Having had much experience travelling and being a previous home owner, we have picked up skills such as DIY for around the house and gardening. We keep in contact throughout the sit with the owners, and let them know how their house and pet is doing with photographs and skype. We aim to ease any worry you may have and let you relax and enjoy your time away.
