We are Mark and Ruth! We are experienced house sitters looking for house sits in Northern Ireland.

We are from Belfast and Dublin, but have been house sitting in New Zealand for the past 12 months! Now that we have returned to Northern Ireland we are looking for housesits in Belfast and the surrounding area and will be available from the end of September. Longer-term prefered.

We both love animals! We are experienced house sitting dogs cats and fish and some livestock.

Recently we have house sat; Labradors, Hungarian Vizlas, German Shepards, cats, sheep, cattle, chickens and Miniature Schnauzers, fish. We have also previously minded Akitas, Budgies, Alpaca.

Previous pets we have owned and raised include cats, dogs (Jack Russel, Staffies, whippet-bijon mix), guinea pigs, chickens and mice.

We are both very active and love to hike and go for walks - perfect if you have an active doggy! We are non-smokers and lead a healthy and quiet lifestyle.

We will respect your home and take immaculate care of it including keeping it very clean.

We understand how important your home and pets are, we will take care of them as if they were our own so that you can rest easy when you are away and know that everything is being taken care of and your pets are happy - we can even send photo updates of your pets cos we know you'll miss them ;)

Mark and Ruth were awesome Housesitters. Couldn't ask for better. We went away for 7 weeks in June and right before we left our beloved cat had to have a tumour removed.

Then of course our labradoodle decided to eat plastic and they rushed him to the vet after hours so he could be treated. And to top it all off we had a pipe burst but thankfully they told us right away so we could have a ... MORE

Ruth and Mark looked after our 2 dogs and 2 cats for about 8 days. We returned to very happy pets, and a tidy, clean house. We would not hesitate to recommend them!

Thank You! Mark & Ruth they have been wounderful house sitters, could'nt ask for more. Came home to happy, cows, chickens and sheep. Jazz our wee dog was very happy with her new freinds and well looked after. We would love to have Mark and Ruth back and highly recommend them to look after your place for peace of mind while you are taking break. Mike & Jacinta

Ruth and Mark were fantastic house and dog sitters. They listened to our requirements, took great care of our doggies, house and garden. I think the dogs had more fun with them than they do with us! We would thoroughly recommend Ruth and Mark for any house sit. The house was left clean, tidy and complete with 2 happy, tired dogs!
