Introduction

We are a quiet and reliable couple in our mid 40s with one well behaved 6 year old boy. We are both teetotal and non-smokers.
We all love animals, especially cats and small to medium dogs, and our son has a soft spot for rabbits, guinea pigs and other little furry creatures!

After time away from the workplace to look after our son, Siobhan has recently started freelancing as a copywriter and spends most mornings and evenings working at the computer getting this business off the ground. Daytimes are spent in the education of our son, who is homeschooled. Any spare time is spent knitting, crocheting, embroidering or baking.
Colin, after working as an electrician for many years, returned to university to study Mechanical Engineering and is in his last year of that, so also appreciates peace and quiet to get on with his studies. In his spare time he loves to read and watch bad movies, the cheesier the better. 
Our son loves to draw and read and likes to go for walks in the park whenever possible, which luckily ties in nicely with any dog walking duties for the pets we look after! 


Why we want to house sit

As a family we love to travel and have been lucky enough to find homesits in places such as Canada, Spain and Indonesia as well as closer to home. Traveling so much means that we are unfortunately unable to keep our own pets, which is why we love pet sitting so much. Our son especially loves smaller pets and is very gentle and careful aroud them. 
We own our own holiday home and often use the services of home sitters ourselves, so we do know how it feels to entrust your home and pets to someone else and will do whatever we can to put your mind at ease. We are more than happy to arrange daily skype calls for you to check in with your pets, or we can keep a pet diary for you whilst you are away, or just keep you updated with texts and photos, whatever is necessary to allow you to relax whilst away, safe in the knowledge that your home and pets are well cared for.

We are also happy to water plants,work in the garden, collect mail and will of course keep the house clean and tidy. We will treat your home as we would want ours to be treated, with respect and care and we will love your pets as our own.
If this sounds like what you are looking for - we look forward to meeting you!
