WHO ARE WE?
We are two animal lovers and great friends who both love travelling and exploring new places. I am a freelance marketing consultant/designer and Lisa is a nurse, who has just left the healthcare sector after 20 years.
We are both friendly, trustworthy and reliable. We respect people's property and privacy and will ensure that your pets receive the attention, care, and love they deserve.
HOW LONG CAN WE HELP YOU?
We are looking to house sit over the majority of the next 12 months. This could be a single, long-term sit or more likely multiple short-term sits.
We will ensure that we indicate on our profile, the dates we already have commitments for, so you don't waste time, as we know the process of finding someone can often be quite stressful and time-consuming.
WHY DO WE WANT TO HOUSE/PET SIT?
We need a home base, away from our normal environment, to allow us to dedicate our time to work on a new business project together, to enjoy the company of animals, and to relax and enjoy the time away from home!
A retreat or series of retreats will allow us more clarity with our project, in addition to enjoying taking care of your animals and your home, allowing you to have a holiday or time abroad. We find animals bring a joyful and calming presence which we both feel deeply.
WHERE ARE WE PREPARED TO TRAVEL TO?
We are happy and prepared to travel throughout the UK. It is fun to explore and enjoy a variety of walks in different counties. We have our own transport and are very flexible with our time.
WHAT EXPERIENCE DO WE HAVE?
We both have experience of house and pet-sitting over a number of years, individually and together. We have looked after dogs, cats, hens, parrots, and fish! In addition, we also have personal experiences of looking after rabbits and horses.
During house-sits we have also dealt with gardening, house-keeping, looking after tradespeople, basic DIY, taking phone messages, bin collection, and sorting and organising post, etc. We will look after your home as if it is our own, whilst respecting your privacy and guidelines.
References are available for you.
WHAT WILL WE COMMIT TO YOU DURING THE PROCESS?
We feel it is really important to communicate quickly and efficiently during the whole process.
We will respond to email messages as soon as we can, we are both available on our mobiles for you to call, if we don't answer, please leave a message and we will return your call when we become available. We find having a chat speeds things along for both sides as so much more can be covered in a much quicker time period, which is beneficial to all, so just call us, we don't mind!
It is important for us to meet you and your pets before committing, especially where your pet's welfare is concerned - it is so important to meet them and understand them. Therefore, if possible, we'd want to travel to see you if you feel like we are the right sitters for you.
We will provide ID on meeting you.
WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW?
We want to be clear, honest and upfront, so if there is something else you feel you need to know please contact us.
We look to hearing from you.
