Eddie & Ruth
Eddie is Scottish and Ruth English. We lived in Leeds for 15 years before emigrating to Australia where we lived for 30 years. We are retired professionals (psychologist and social worker), now full-time travellers and house-sitters (with England as a base). We have been house-sitting for the past 20 months (with breaks for lock-downs). We've looked after dogs, cats, rabbits, pigs, goats, chickens, ducks and horses. Ruth grew up on a farm in Devon, where we spent our 1st lockdown doing various odd jobs on the farm, plus establishing a veggie patch & building a greenhouse. We had a large house and garden in Australia along with an elderly diabetic cat, who needed twice daily insulin injections.
We bring maturity, responsibility, intelligence and caring. We will respect the home owner's wishes, follow the routines they have established for their animals and maintain a high standard of care for the animals and house, We will look after both as if they were our own and are very aware of the need for strict hygiene in these unusual times. We are adaptable, fit and active vegetarians, non-smokers and have a car. We've had both doses of Covid vaccine.
We've completed over 30 house-sits with reviews, all positive, scattered over 3 sites. Here are some quotes from Reviews on other sites:
"Everything went perfectly. Dogs happy, house fine, garden watered. These are dependable people and we recommend them to you!"
"[They] quickly understood what was needed of them, and were happy to look after our aged menagerie. They are a friendly helpful couple, completely trustworthy and reliable."
"They were very easy to get to know and communicate with and dealt with any issues that arose when we were away. We would highly recommend them."
