Introduction

Does your cat love to be cuddled? Does your dog like constant companionship and lots of walks? Does your dog like to play ball? If you are looking for someone to care for your pets and your home like you would my own, then I am your girl. I think what makes me different from many other pet and house sitters is I do it not just for the travel opportunities but because of my love for animals. I thrive on the cuddles and the companionship. I am a homeowner of two apartments, an Airbnb host and a project manager. I also spent 25 years in the hospitality industry, in the Canadian Rockies at Chateau Lake Louise and the Banff Springs Hotel. I have travelled to many countries around the world including India, Sri Lanka, France, Spain, Kenya, Botswana, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Cyprus, Mexico, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, USA and Peru to name a few. I have ‘wanderlust’ so badly it’s tattooed on my wrist. I am originally from Canada but have made my home Australia since 2000. All these skills and experiences make me an eligible candidate for your assignment as I am organised, agile, a problem solver and open to new cultures and experiences. I am single and child free which makes me independent and flexible.


Why we want to house sit

The longer I travel the more interested I become in experiencing new locations ‘as a local’. What better way to get that experience then by walking your dog along the local streets or in the local park. Throughout my travels all over the world I’ve recognised that people are all the same. We want to be loved, safe, healthy and happy. Parents especially want their children to be educated, healthy and safe. It’s similar with pet owners; they want their pets to be fed, cuddled and to feel safe in their own environment. I love being able to provide that for pet owners. I am currently not working due to a repetitive strain injury which allows me the opportunity to undertake assignments. My doctors have recommended I do it as it allows me to focus on something other than my pain, which is a good thing! Your pets get my full attention.


Previous House Sitting Experience

I have extensive pet and house sitting experience, doing this for strangers, friends, colleagues and family. I have cared for cats and dogs, including puppies.

I am a homeowner myself so I understand how important your home is to you. I own and manage my own apartment as an Airbnb. I am great in an emergency and know how to get things done, e.g. If some sort of unexpected repair was required. My references demonstrate my experience in taking care of other people's pets. I take it very seriously and do it mainly for the joy of interacting with cats and dogs.

I have more references and take assignments through my own Facebook page titled Free Pet and House Sitting by Lorraine - local or global. Please check it out.  I also have profiles on Housecarers.com, Nomador.com, HousesitMexico.com and Madpaws.com.au. Drop me a line if you need more information or would like contact details for my references.
