Hi, we are Julie and Jonathan  – professional, trusted and reliable, international House and Pet Sitters.  We offer home owners around the world the opportunity to leave their pets in the comfort of their own home, in their familiar surroundings, and to be able to travel knowing that your pets will be loved and cared for and your home will be well looked after while you are away.

We love to travel but miss now having a pet of our own.  We joined the pet sitting network, as we are now in the privileged position of being  semi-retired and financially independent.  Entrusting your home and your pet to someone else is a big decision and we can totally 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 House/pet sitters together.  We are thrilled with our excellent Reviews from owners and to be rated with the full 5 stars for the 68 house/pet sits we have completed.  We hold the Enhanced Verification Level with Trustedhousesitters, which included an identity and criminal background check.    Please take a look at our reviews.   We’ve looked after a variety of pets including dogs, cats, fish, hamsters, chickens and guineafowl, a horse, a Kunekune pig and even a 40 year old tortoise.  However our experience of animal care also extends to cows, sheep, rabbits, gerbils and the odd stick insect too!   We are totally comfortable with all dog breeds including Rescue dogs, anxious and shy animals and pets of all sizes.  We’ve looked after various large breeds including a Pyrenean Mountain Dog, St Bernard, Dogue de Bordeaux, Rottweiler, Doberman, Old English Sheep Dog and a German Shepherd/Pitbull Cross. We’ve also looked after small breeds too including Minature Dachshund’s, Chihuahua, Coton de Tulear and Cavapoo’s.

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 15 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 have high standards regarding cleanliness and we go above and beyond with our professional service.   Owners will always return to a spotless home ready to relax back into.

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.   We do not ‘travel’ when we are ‘sitting’.  Our days will always be with your pets.   When 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.
