Rspca animal lover

55, Retired

I am a house owner and animal lover.
I love to live in different places, experiencing different things and making friends with animals (and people) as I go.
I worked 3 years, part time, for the Rspca and have owned and cared for pets and done Puppy training winning "trainer of the year".
I have looked after people's houses and pets on an informal basis for up to 6 months previously. I leave houses in the same clean state, or cleaner, than when I arrive, and the pets just as happy and healthy (or more so) than before.
I have completed two long summer sitting tours of GB with sitting tours of Australia and New Zealand in between plus a long one in Malaysia. Many of these, particularly in the past year, with Trusted housesittersuk.com
I would take great care of your house and garden and love your pets as if they were my own.

We were very happy to confirm James as our housesitter for our dog and cat. He had great references and kept in touch both before the housesit and during the 10 days we were away. The animals were well cared for and the house was left immaculate for our return. We would definitely recommend James as a great house sitter.

This was our first time using a dog/ house sitter and we are definitely very happy with everything James did. Murphy is 19 months old and is a lively boy during walks but James and him seemed to settle into a good routine and Murphy was well cared for. James looked after the house like it was his own and everything was spotless when we returned. He even watered the newly seeded lawn and planting which was a bonus. James was reliable and trustworthy and I was strongly recommend him to anyone ... MORE

James came and looked after our dogs Johnny and Archie and our cat Kingi while we were on a family holiday. What a fantastic dog minder and all round house sitter, I can't say enough to thank him and recommend him to others. He made friends with both our dogs and totally bonded with our very large male Rhodesian Ridgeback which is not always easy. Both dogs clearly loved him, going for long walks and loving the attention he gave them, even after we got home. Our house was clean and tidy and ... MORE

This was our first experience of using a house sitter and James has made the experience a positive one. Our two dogs Jonty and Sadie were very settled and happy on our return and it was evident that James had made them his priority. Thank you James! James is very easy to talk to and we enjoyed his company, we have no reservations about recommending James.

James sat for our 2 large dogs one of which is on heavy regular medications. She was very anxious before we left but soon settled. They were obviously given wonderful care as they weren't interested in us when we got home. Thank you James

No rating James was absolutely brilliant. Very good at communicating beforehand. Looked after Bertie our dog so well and was a pleasure to have in our home - he even stripped the bed! Thank you James.

No rating Everything you will need in a reliable trustworthy house sitter is what you will find in James. On return house was as we left it And the dogs were so happy with James I think they are missing him now He even managed to look after our bearded dragon feeding him his live insects Would recommend James to look after your house/animals

No rating I am very happy to recommend James as a house and pet sitter. We returned home to find everything clean and tidy, plants and animals all fed and watered. He is easy to communicate with and only contacted me when he had a concern. Highly recommend him.

No rating James was a delightful house-sitter, I am sorry we didn't have the chance to talk more, he's a very interesting chap! He was very punctual, completely trustworthy, and took very good care of both Zorro the cat and the house. Communication while we were away was mainly by text, all very friendly and responded to quickly. I would be happy to recommend him, and hope that we may have him back sometime.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
