Jan and her husband looked after our house and dog for a week in July. When we returned the dog was very happy and the house clean and tidy.

About

Both took early retirement 2013. We remain interested in developing ourselves with new challenges and experiences. Non smokers. Jan ex teacher (TEFL), Iain ex teacher and business and IT consultant. 3 children now largely self-supporting!

Why we want to house sit

We enjoy the experience of new places and cultures, but especially rewarding is that an assignment gives us a glimpse of the lifestyle of our hosts, a taste of living as they live.

Our experience

We are also listed on house exchange, housitteruk and helpx websites. We are previous dog owners and breeders (cockers, 2 litters) for the love and experience of it. In 2016 we have done 3 sits in UK but 6 weeks with Moby (puppy training)
