About Richard

Hi, I’m Rich Eskinazi. I'm from Cape Town,South Africa and recently moved to London with my wife and 13 year old son, for my wife to take up a new job here. I run my own Strategic Contracting business and most of my work with clients is remote and done from home. I love animals and have been a parent to many dogs and cats. We currently have a Daschund, a French bulldog and a cat. Parker, Frankie and Wiggles all came with us from
Cape Town and are living their best lives as we live in a park in Hampton Hill.I walk them daily – Frankie runs around ecstatically happy to be outside, Parker makes friends with every human he meets and yes, sometimes even the cat comes along – following us around! Like all pets, they each have their own character. 

I've often looked after people's homes and pets and I'm looking for more work-life balance as I start to move away from contracting, now that I'm in the UK. Having used house / pet sitters myself I know who I would want looking after my home and my pets. I know that you'll be able to relax with peace of mind, knowing your home and special friends are loved and well looked after - in the same way that I look after my own. I won’t be the cheapest house / pet sitter, but I know that I will be the best and most responsible. 

In terms of services offered, I'm available for overnight home sits as well as for home visits for an hour. I can water plants or bring in mail if necessary. Obviously with a home of my own with pets, I bring the responsibility that comes with my stage in life and your pets won't be left alone for overnight stays for any more than three hours. I look forward to meeting you and your pets!

Richard stayed with our two little sausage dogs for a week. We received daily updates and pictures of walks and time spent at home. Rich also had to change wound dressing and give medication which he handled like a pro. Overall, a very positive experience and we can highly recommend him as a sitter. Thanks for taking care of Saggeus and Eva 🐶
