About John

Hi

Thanks for viewing me, a semi-retired former geologist now doing a few odd jobs 😁.

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,dives,ducks,horses,sheep and fish. My home experiences of animals were cats and dogs and had a cat up until 6 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.

I am happy to travel for sits when 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 .

 Happy to sit nationally/interbationally if location/dates suit.

We were very pleased with the service John provided. He is very personable and communicated well with us at all stages. He was also flexible in accommodating our specific needs for which we were most grateful. We have no hesitation in recommending him to other pet owners
