Introduction

Hello there, please allow me to introduce ourselves:

My partner David is a retired English police officer and I am Sian, a retired bookkeeper/office manager for an Australian construction company (was with them for seven years). We are now following the sun and travel Australia summer in our caravan and Europe summer in our motorhome.

I was a dog obedience instructor for 10 years and had two dogs in the PAL Superdog team (demonstrating obedience, agility and fly ball) travelling Australia with my dogs.  My beautiful dogs were also on TV and in several TV advertisements. I also had a cat (Charlie lived to a ripe old age of 16) and have looked after and ride horses. We don't have any animals at present due to our nomadic lifestyle so would love to get my animal fix by looking after yours.
We are both non smokers and try to keep fit while travelling by riding our bikes, taking the dogs for a walk that we are sitting or jogging (even though my joints protest a little too much now about the jogging).

We own several houses (all currently tenanted) and understand how important your home is to you. While I am not OCD (even though my children might disagree with me there) I do like to keep things in order.  Your home would be as well looked after as we look after our own. Needless to say your animals would be well cared for.


Why we want to house sit

As mentioned, we are currently following the sun and love to experience different towns/countries while living as a "local".  The house sitting experience is ideal for us.  It also enables me to get my animal fix, I have always had animals and tend to miss them while travelling.  David also gets his gardening fix while looking after yours.

House sitting also gives us a break from the travelling we are doing in our motor home and gives us a chance to remain static for the period of the house sit whether it be one week or one month.

We love getting to know friends of the house sitters we house sit for (if offered) and have made some life long friends while doing it. 


Previous House Sitting Experience

We have completeds several house sits in UK and France varying in duration from one week to three weeks.

We have also stayed at my friends 20 acre property in Australia minding their 5 dogs, 8 chooks (chickens), 5 horses and 2 cats while they have a well deserved break.  No rest for the wicked there.
