Trustworthy & Reliable

65, Retired

An ex-serviceman (25 years service which ended in 1995) who retired in April 2018 after working for 23 years with a Voluntary Youth Organisation. Animal lover, non-smoker.

I am currently touring the UK in a 24-foot motorhome for the next couple of years (which needs to be parked as close as possible to any house sitting I undertake).

I have owned my own homes but now my home is my 'van'. I am an animal lover who has looked after dogs (Springer Spaniels, Staffordshire Crosses, Doberman, Collie, Labradors and a 75kg Leonberger), I have also looked after cats - all in locations such as The Wirral, Norfolk, Suffolk, Devon, Dorset, Shropshire, East and West Midlands, South Ayrshire, Aberdeenshire and Leicestershire. Available for stays anywhere in the UK from 1 week upwards - but will consider shorter sits (weekends etc). I love walking especially in the quieter areas.

I was asked if i would do 2 sits in Western Australia from the beginning of January to mid March 2020, an experience I could not pass and thoroughly enjoyed, but a week after my return to the UK we were in lock down due to the global pandemic, I was very lucky to be able to stay with a lovely family in Norfolk for the duration - this was with the family of my very first 'sit' in 2018.

In essence, I do not have any building or gardening skills, but I can help maintain a garden and house and I am willing to tackle most things.

The first picture is a pre-arranged meeting, two months prior to the required dates, with Aslan (a Leonberger) so that he could get to know me and vice versa; as well as to let the family form their own opinions prior to my house sitting. I am willing to meet any potential home/pet owners so that they can decide if I am suitable.

Glenn is now our first choice for future sits. He is very trustworthy, his pet care is first class (our dog really misses him) and he left our home very tidy and clean. He arrived the night before we left to make sure both he and us were totally happy with the sit and slept the night in his camper which allowed us to get an early uninterupted nights sleep for our morning flight. His comms are also great and he kept in touch with regular updates about our fur baby. A thoroughly nice chap and ... MORE

Glenn was an amazing Housesitter immediately bonding with our beloved dogs and wee ancient cat. It was clear that the dogs especially loved him and all three were so well cared for. We has a lovely holiday knowing that all was well with animal care. As Glenn is a great photographer we got some updates and lovely photos of all three pets having a great time which was very reassuring too. Glenn also kept the house lovely and clean too which was lovely to return to and helped load the car when ... MORE

No rating Wow...where to begin? Glen took care of Flower and Rosie as well as our Chickens. The dogs are big and full of life and he just loved them and them him. He is the perfect gentleman who exceeded all expectations. The long walks, the wonderful photos he took, the ease of communication and the pristine condition of the house on our return are all testament to his qualities...the fact that the dogs are still a little pee'd off with us that he left is a testament to ours it seems. He was ... MORE
