We were delighted when Winand and Francoise agreed to look after our dog Lottie while we were on holiday. They were brilliant at communicating with us prior

    About

    Former Dutch & UN diplomat Dr Winand Staring, regularly leading international missions in the Gulf region, and my French wife Francoise, love to take house & pets assignments in between projects, and during the summer.

    Why we want to house sit

    As pet lovers, we used to have pets around the house but now cannot have our old labrador Kika in due to frequent travels, who we miss a great deal. Fortunately, she found a cosy "retirement" home with good friends in The Netherlands.

    Our experience

    We always had pets around the house, and as diplomats we are used to move homes and take good care of them with responsibility and personal attention.
