We are a responsible, non-smoking, animal-loving couple who have owned a number of pets and homes over the years.
Hi, we are Julie and Jonathan professional, trusted and reliable pet and house sitters. We offer owners the opportunity to leave their pets in the comfort of their own home in familiar surroundings while ensuring they will be well looked after while the owners are away for anything from a short weekend to a few months.
We travel extensively and miss having a pet of our own. We joined the pet sitting network, as we are in the privileged position that we run our business from an internet connection, which allows us to care for other peoples animals and homes while they are away. Entrusting your home and your pet with someone else is a big decision and we can only assure you that both would be looked after as though they were our own.
We are registered with the largest global pet and home sitting community, which connects owners and us as pet sitters together. We are proud to be rated with the full 5 stars for the 49 house/pet sits we have completed and hold the enhanced verification level with them, which included an identity and criminal background check. Please take a look at our reviews. We’ve completed house sits for a variety of pets including dogs, cats, fish, hamsters and chickens. However our experience of animal care extends to horses, sheep, rabbits, gerbils and the odd stick insect too!
Julie has been a School Secretary/Bursar for most of her career and Jonathan has been a Leisure Centre Manager, Holiday Property Manager and School Swimming Teacher. For the past 10 years we have been running our own online travel consultancy business. Jonathan has looked after a number of holiday properties in the past which require anything from pool maintenance, regular cleaning, booking in guests to staff management and liaising with contractors.
We both work completely via an internet connection and have the freedom to reply to emails at a time that suits us, so we are always on hand to give your pets the care and attention they deserve. Plus if anything should go wrong, you know we are there to take care of things promptly. You can have the peace of mind knowing that someone is about during the day and we are always happy to accommodate any deliveries you may have planned.
We were both raised where pets were a big part of family life including dogs, cats, gerbils, mice, hamsters, rabbits, chickens and horses.
This continued when bringing up our own four children, with more dogs, cats, rabbits, fish and even stick insects!
Now that our children have grown up and left the nest, our accommodation and travel plans mean we haven't been able to have pets of our own for a few years now, so we travel the globe visiting new places, looking after some amazing pets. It’s a real pleasure caring for them and winning their affection in return.
Flexible with our time, we are able to take on single or repeated, short or long term pets sits.
Pet sitting is an opportunity for us to see more of the world. However, we would like to re-assure owners that, during a pet sit we are 100% committed to looking after your home and animals, never abusing the trust you have placed in us. You can relax knowing your pets are getting lots of attention and company while you're away. Very often after we have completed a pet sit we take the opportunity to book a local hotel and explore the surrounding area in our own time.
Before you accept us as your pet sitters, we are always more than happy to have a video chat or phone call in order that you can get to know us a little, tell us a bit more about what the sit entails and make sure we are the right people for your pet sit requirements. We will keep you updated with Whatsapp, text or email whilst your away, as much or as little as you like, to re-assure you that your pets and home are in safe hands and give you extra peace of mind.
