Reliable, trustworthy, experienced, mature.



Hello - we are Mike and Viv Wright - we are an active recently retired professional couple. We live in a small village in Cheshire. We had a Springer Spaniel -Ben for 15 years. Mike helped out on a farm at weekends and school holidays when he was younger, so we are both used to and like being with animals.
We are experienced house / pet sitters, We began house sitting on our trips to New Zealand in 2018 and 2019 and loved doing so, we met some really nice people and lovely animals, in fact we enjoyed it so much we have decided to do it back home in the UK .
You can rest assured that your property and pets will be loved and cared for while in our care when you are away from home.

Viv & Mike are perfect house sitters. We enjoyed an evening supper together before we left on our weeks' holiday. Our house & garden were so well looked after whilst we were away, green house & various pots plants were all watered. The donkeys & cats looked extremely content upon our return. Mike even cut the grass - what a lovely surprise. We had, unfortunately, unforeseen building work going on whilst we were away but that did not faze Mike & Viv. They took everything in their stride & ... MORE

My first experience of using housesitting. Viv and Mike were wonderful. Their experience was very reassuring and were lovely with the dogs. The dogs were happy and relaxed when I arrived home and had clearly enjoyed themselves. The house was spotless and Mike even mowed the lawn and repaired a tricky door handle. Viv and Mike have a lovely connection with dogs and are perfect people to leave your treasured furry friends with.

We finally met Viv and Mike in March after our January holiday was rescheduled and they had kindly agreed to the new dates. As soon as we met them we knew the dogs (and house) were in expert hands. They are such a warm hearted couple who have a lovely calm way with dogs, not to mention a wealth of doggy experience and we knew our furry friends were going to be well loved and cared for. There is a professionalism in the way Viv and Mike operate, and they put our minds at rest that whatever our ... MORE

Viv and Mike arrived the night before the sit to familiarize themselves with house, garden and of course Poli and Kiti. We have a holiday let and they kindly put out the welcome pack and managed a problem with the heating, excellent. On our return the dogs had clearly been well cared for and the house was spotless. We couldn't have asked for more. A professional experience from a couple who know what to do, we would recommend them and use them again. Viv and Mike thank you very much. All the ... MORE

Mike and Viv were really excellent House/dog sitters. This was our first time using a house sitter and their communications were first class. They really looked after both the dogs and the house and put our minds at rest. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mike and Viv as reliable and trusted dog sitters.
MICHAEL (Oaken England, Jul 2021 - 1 week 1 day)
Viv and Mike were excellent house sitters and I'm so glad we chose them. Roddy is not the easiest dog to look after but they had just the right attitude with him and had no problems. I couldn't believe how clean the house was and how tidy the garden was when i got home. I would definitely recommend them as housesitters.
JILL (Washford, Watchet England, Jul 2020 - 1 week 5 days)
Viv and Mike have done a wonderful job of looking after our home our dogs, sheep and geese whilst we have been away. We returned to find our home very clean and tidy and all pets fit and healthy. In fact it all looked smarter than when we left. Viv and Mike are a lovely couple and we would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Vivienne and Mike were fantastic house sitters. They arrived early as requested and learnt the routine here very quickly. Their communication was fabulous, they were great with the animals and looked after the property perfectly leaving it spotless. We would recommend Vivienne and Mike 100% and would love to have them back here again.

Viv & Mike were awesome house sitters/pet carers. They were easy to communicate with and made the process super easy. The pets were well looked after and the house was left very clean and tidy. We would definitely recommend them to others who are seeking sitters.
