Thanks for viewing me, a semi-retired former geologist .
I have done a lot of petsitting through other sites and love it, so now decided to make it a paying hobby. I have sat cats,dogs,chucks,horses,sheep and fish. My home experiences of animals were cats and dogs and had a cat up until 2 years back when Murphy (cat) sadly passed.I have found looking after other people's pets to be so beneficial to me and I love being out and about so dogs are guaranteed all the walks they need. Having had cats I am adept at playtime with them too !
Character-wise I am a positive,outgoing sort and get on welll both with people and pets ! I travelled quite a lot with various jobs worldwide and have seen a lot of the UK which I love.I am capable house owner and have looked after houses and apartments - location/ambience are key.
Pets welfare comes first and foremost so I always seek comprehensive instruction and your pets preferences/routines which helps keep them happy whilst you enjoy your breaks - a few treats also help !! Further to this if housesittting involved then basic knowledge of your dwellings essentials.
If travelling then I agree travel costs on a sit by sit basis and am happy to discuss fees in detail as required.So far I have done house/pet sits in UK,Spain and Germany.
I hope I have given you a little insight but please feel free to get in touch and arrange a chat .
Also happy to sit nationally if location/dates suit.
Would highly recommend John, just returned after week away to a nice tidy home and happy, relaxed, contented dogs. Great communicator and nothing seems to be too much trouble. Thank you John.
I'd definitely recommend John to others. His communication was excellent and he was very understanding of my and my dogs needs and pre-existing schedules.
The dogs were well looked after and obviously liked John, one of my dogs is quite timid but ran to John as soon as she saw him which was nice.
John also courteously put the hoover round and washed bedding/towels used during his stay which I had neither asked nor expected him to do.
