Dependable Sitters

59, Retired Civil Servant

54, Self-Employed

Reliable, Trustworthy, Non-Smoking Couple. Animal-Loving. Free To Travel.

Have total peace of mind by letting us look after your home, and your pets in their own environment, while you are away.

We are Judith and Arny McCleary, a married couple from County Durham.

We are both ex-civil servants, with each of us having worked in management positions in the Civil Service for over 30 years. We now own an online book-selling business, which leaves us flexible to travel, and to watch over your beloved pets and homes.

We are a very respectable, reliable, honest and trustworthy couple who love travelling and meeting new people (and pets!). We've had quite a few pets over the years, so we certainly know how to give them the very best care and attention.

So go away and enjoy your holiday, and let us keep your home and pets safe.

Our repeat Sitters Judith and Arnie left yesterday and sat for us for 8 nights. As usual, they were brilliant and so were our cats when we returned. We all know we are lucky to get away this year (as and when permitted), and our trip was for a special occasion. Big THANK YOU to Judith and Arnie for putting our minds at rest and for not letting us down in these difficult times. Have to say, J&A leave our house immaculate there's never any worry there. They are friendly and reliable, ... MORE

Judith and Arny are the perfect house/pet sitters! We returned from our two-week holiday to happy cats and a spotlessly clean home. On meeting them, you know right away, this is a couple you can trust. I would highly recommend them to others needing a pet/house sitter, and can't wait to have them back to look after our two Burmese cats Raj & AJ.

From the moment Judith and Arny walked in and the dogs all rushed up to say hello we know that we were leaving our home and dogs in excellent care. The house was immaculate when we returned and the dogs seemed very happy and relaxed. I know they are hoping for another visit from this lovely couple. Very happy to recommend to everyone and would love them to keep coming back here.

Judith and Arny are the best, from the first communication we had with them, they were lovely, from the moment they turned up it was like we had always known them, on return it was clear our 2 dogs had had a wonderful time with them and were so happy, they left our home spotless, we can't thank them enough for everything they did, would strongly recommend this couple to anyone considering them

Judith and Arne were fantastic housesitters whilst we were away for a week this February. They looked after our home and spoiled pooch with love and care, we even received daily picture updates! Our home was cleaner than we left it and I would not hesitate to ask them back again, I'm only sorry we weren't able to meet in person. Wonderful people.

Judith and Arnie sat for us this time for a 6 week sit!! Our lovely dog is poorly and on lots of meds and they cared for her as if she was their own. We were relaxed about leaving her for this long time only because they are so caring and loving towards her - I completely trusted them. Our home was so clean and tidy on our return and they had thoughtfully left us milk in the fridge too I cannot recommend them enough - they are complete stars ⭐️

Judith and Arny were absolutely brilliant - a really warm friendly couple. The dog and cat looked fantastic as did our house, which was spotless and much cleaner than I'd left it!. Judith had also gone to the trouble of washing (and ironing!) the bedlinen and towels which was a wonderful surprize. I would highly recommend them to anyone and I hope we'll be able to get them back again to sit .

Judith and Arny, well ... perfect sitters. What a lovely couple, so warm and pleasant to deal with before the sit and during. It a real shame we didn't have more time to get to know each other better, but we can rectify that :) The cats (most important) didn't know we were away, the house was more than better than we left it (we were still cleaning when J&A arrived)! And, they mowed our lawns too, wonderful. Can highly recommend Judity and Arny to anyone looking for sitters and would ... MORE

Perfect house sitters.. We returned to a pristine house and happy animals, grass cut, sweet peas picked, bedlinen laundered. What more could we ask ! Please come back !
LINNY (Edinburgh Scotland, Jul 2019 - 6 days)
We couldn't believe our luck finding Judith and Arny! They are such generous, caring and trustworthy people which is what you need when leaving your home and pets in someone elses hands. They followed our instructions to the T and picked everything up super fast. Looking after a sanctuary sounds like afternoons spent on the grass enjoying cuddles from lambs and reading a book but it actually comes with a lot of hard work, physically and mentally, and Judith and Arny not grasped everything ...

Thanks for the fabulous review. It was the experience of a lifetime and we would be more than happy to sit for you again.
Judith and Arny were amazing sitters! We came back to a pristine home and our garden was in tip top condition Most importantly our dog was relaxed and happy as she was so obviously loved and cared for with lots of cuddles and walks. I cannot recommend highly enough FIVE STAR SITTERS!
