Hello, my name is Paola and my partner's name is Justin. We both work with children and really enjoy animals and being active outdoors. When we're not looking after the little ones at school, we're busy at home taking care of our own little ones (doggies) - Luna, Lucas and (Kitty Cat) Lila . We love playing with them and giving them lots of attention. We take Luna and Lucas on daily walks around our neighborhood as well as the nearby parks here in Gainesville, Fl.
Luckily we have a trusted house sitter of our own (Paola's mom) to look after them for us while we're travelling!
Why we want to house sit
This summer we'll be travelling around Europe and want to experience all it has to offer, which means taking a break from the normal tourist routine and really getting to know the area in all its nuances. House sitting is the perfect way for us experience a new place while giving someone else the freedom to hopefully do the same!
We will treat your home and pets with the same kindness, compassion, and respect that we give to our own house and cuddly companions : )
As we said earlier, we both work with children, own a tidy, cozy house together and have three amazing animals that we'll miss everyday we're travelling!
Justin works at a beautiful City of Gainesville park where he works with school groups to teach them about local ecology and conservation, and about the importance of being responsible citizens of the Earth. In addition to working with students, he also takes care of the various classroom animals (cane toad, snakes, tarantula, newts, turtles) as well as the farm animals (Roscoe the ram, sheep, Penny the Jersey cow, chickens, and hogs) and garden. Even as a child, Justin helped his parents take care of their 4 dogs, 6 cats, and occasional foster pets.
Paola works with the school board as a substitute and after school teacher where she constantly comes up with new and exciting arts and crafts projects for the students. She also worked as an architect designer and at a kitchen/bath remodeling firm. The common thread has always been art and design, but she also loves animals, nature and staying active. She's often the one that pushes for us to take the dogs out for a jog even after a long day at work!
We both have years of experience caring for pets, children, and taking care of our own home, and we would love the opportunity to extend this same level of care, cleanliness, and compassion to your home as well.
