About Us (Full):
We are a married, professional, Canadian couple (sorry), in our 30's. 'Home' is Toronto, Canada, but we have been living and working professionally in Auckland, New Zealand and Brisbane, Australia for the last few years, and have now moved back to Canada. We are currently looking for pet/ house sits until the end of April and would be home most of the day to be with your pets and keep them company.

- We always do our best to take care of your pets, plants, and home the way we would want our own home to be treated
- We can promise that we will always act in 'good faith' in response to any unforeseen circumstances, unexpected visitors, suspicious activity, or emergencies (sick pets, fire, water leaks, and minor home repairs if they arise, etc.)
- Inside Pet Experience: cats, dogs, fish, bunnies, hamsters, small snakes and turtles (a long time ago)
- Outside Pet/ Animal Experience: calves, chickens, bison, ostriches, horses (Ponies to Clydesdales)... Brandon grew-up on a ranch and has 'unique' animal experience
- Teachable: If we don't yet have experience with your pet, we're happy to learn!
- Plants/ Gardens: I wouldn't say we have green thumbs, but as long as you show us what to do, we're keen to do it! If you have a prize-winning garden and need someone who is a plant-whisperer, we may not be the best fit for you as we don't know what to do if plants start to turn for the worst... But we are at least honest!

Why We House Sit:
1) At this time in our lives, we don't have pets of our own, but we have both grown up with cats and dogs, so this allows us the opportunity to hang out with furry friends while reaching our financial goals.
2) We use our time pet sitting to allocate our rent budget to pay down our student loans, so that...
3) One day we can afford to have furry family members of our own!

Keep Us In Mind:
If we aren't a good fit for this current house sit, please keep us in mind for any future house sits you may be arranging. We would love to meet you beforehand for coffee and do a pre-interview for future house sits.

We hope to hear from you!
Thank you, Brandon and Danielle (B&D)

NOTE: *We do realize that 24 Sussex Drive is probably not available for house sitting... We wouldn't want to get involved with the politics of caring for it anyways... ;)

Brandon and Danielle were dream house sitters during what was the challenging COVID period! They were easy to communicate with, reliable, well organised and a joy to leave with our much loved pets with a daily pics of our animals having as much fun as were on our holiday. They came ready with their own supplies for crockery, bedding etc. to minimise the risk of COVID and made it so easy and reassuring to hand our hone and pets over to them. We would gladly have them sit for us again anytime.
MICHELLE ( Ontario, Jul 2020 - 6 days)
Thanks for this review Michelle; we're glad you guys were as happy as we were!
Danielle and Brandon looked after our house and most importantly our two little dogs while we were on holiday recently. We could not have been happier with the care they took while we were away. They went above and beyond the call of duty in every way, sending regular newsy friendly messages plus photos of the dogs, to ensure we were never worried on their behalf. One of our dogs, Bonnie, has a skin allergy which requires the daily administration of tablets, and so conscientious were Danielle ... MORE
PETER (Brisbane QLD, Nov 2019 - 2 and a half weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle are the best house sitters you could possibly wish for. From the first meeting there is no doubt that they are a kind, caring, trustworthy couple who will look after your pets like they are their own. B&D stayed at our house for 2 weeks and took such good care of our dog and home while we were away. They updated us via email and went above and beyond to help out when an incident occurred with our vehicle while we were away. I was so surprised to find the house completely ... MORE
JESSIE & MATT (Yeronga QLD, Nov 2019 - 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle were an absolute delight to have house and kitty sitting. I have 2 cats there are not only extremely needy, but also both have multiple health problems (goodbye savings). B&D were fantastic at giving Apollo his meds and at special diet duty. Communication was fantastic and I felt confident the cats were being looked after well. I had regular photos and text updates without even having to ask. The apartment was also very well cared for and spotless when I returned. ... MORE
SHANEY (Sherwood QLD, Oct 2019 - 2 weeks 1 day) From Aussie House Sitters
14th October, 2019. I recently had the pleasure of meeting Brandon and Danielle when they house sat for my kitty Miss Mia and my daughter's fish Gerkin. Oh and can't forget the possum that recently decided to move in and demand feeding. I immediately felt relaxed when I met Brandon and Danielle. They are a lovely couple extremely friendly and obliging. The whole experience was excellent and as I had to return to drop off some gear part way through their stay I found them to be very ... MORE
PATTI (Hemmant QLD, Sep 2019 - 2 Weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle have just finished a housesit for a month for us. We have 3 very spoilt cats.They are definitely the most professional sitters we have ever had in 6 years of using sitters.They fronted for the initial interview with passports, licences ,police checks and references. I was so impressed. Then a week prior to the sit they came again to go over everything. I have a folder of information but they also had a checklist to go over. They arrived promptly on the day of our ... MORE
TERRI (Daisy Hill QLD, Sep 2019 - 4 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle are the most wonderful couple who we felt completely at ease with when we met for our "interview". Most importantly though, our beautiful "girls" two Tonkinese cats felt exactly the same way!!! We left for our holiday completely confident that the house would be safe hands and the animals too!! We can't thank Danielle and Brandon enough for the efficient way they dealt with a plumbing issue in our absence. We really didn't worry about a thing as they had everything in ... MORE
MARIE (Jindalee QLD, Aug 2019 - 4 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle were absolutely great house and pet sitters. They were down to earth and honest and made us feel very comfortable leaving them in charge of our house and of course our loveable adorable Labrador Izzy. Our home was left cleaner than we left it. Izzy looked great when we got back. They took her on her daily walks , followed all our instructions and gave us plenty of updates with videos and pictures and messages. They went above and beyond all expectations of sitters. I ... MORE
JACQUELINE (Algester QLD, Jun 2019 - 1 month 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Quite simply, if Danielle and Brandon are available for your house sit; you would be mad not to have them come and stay. We cannot recommend them highly enough. They are truly delightful people and we are so glad they came to look after house and our pets while we were gone. We were away for seven and a half weeks and have two cats that needed looking after. Five days before we left; we had to have one of them in for laser surgery to remove some potential skin cancers. This involved her ... MORE
DUANE (Sunnybank Hills QLD, Apr 2019 - 1 month 3 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle looked after our house and our dog Murphy for a month while we were overseas, they did an absolutely stellar job! We came back to a house so sparkling clean (I've never seen it so clean!) and a very happy puppy. While we were away B&D kept us updated with everything happening at home and sent through pictures of murph having a wonderful time! I couldn't recommended these guys highly enough - also they're just lovely.
MARGIE (Stafford QLD, Mar 2019 - 4 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle were all we could have hoped for, and more! This was our first experience with House Sitting, and our main desire was that our dog Snoop was well cared for. We returned to a home that was well cared for (suspect it is in better shape than when we left it) and a fit, healthy, happy dog. Brandon and Danielle also encountered a few unexpected 'situations' while we were away.... e.g. extreme batch of storms over two weeks, deluges and downpours that overtaxed the ... MORE
KIETH (CHELMER QLD, Mar 2019 - 4 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
We had the pleasure of having B+D (Brandon and Danielle) come to stay for us for 11 nights with our cat and very large dog. Every interaction we had with them we felt rest assured that our fur babes would be looked after. Even though they mentioned gardening isn't their fortay, all of my little succulent terrariums and pots all survived and looked healthy upon return. Our dog, who is very large and can be quite a handful was actually very sad when they left and let out a few wimpers watching ... MORE
LAURA (Chermside QLD, Mar 2019 - 1 week 3 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle are the perfect house sitters! They looked after our house and two Jack Russels for two weeks and did an amazing job. We knew as soon as we met that we would be leaving everything in good hands - and we weren't disappointed. Both dogs warmed to them immediately, which was particularly surprising because Rose can be a little nervous around strangers.. We could also tell that they were experienced house sitters by all the questions they asked us beforehand. - important things ... MORE
LEANNE (Chermside West QLD, Feb 2019 - 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle looked after our house, garden and chickens like they were their own (except better!). They sent us regular updates and went above and beyond what was needed. Coming home to a spotless house was a real treat. They are a lovely couple and it was a delight to have them house sit for us. Thanks B&D!!
REBECCA (Corinda QLD, Feb 2019 - 1 week 2 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle are friendly, caring, kind, helpful and wonderful communicators. We received daily photo's and updates about Molly and Murray (dog and cat), our home was cleaner and tidier than when we left. I would definitely recommend them to house sit for you!
MELINDA (Heathwood QLD, Jan 2019 - 3 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Danielle & Brandon were our first experience with using Aussie House Sitters. Right from our first email connection, I felt confident that they were a suitable, reliable & capable couple. Both Danielle & Brandon are excellent communicators & drew on their experiences from previous house sits to quickly demonstrate that they have the necessary abilities to be a good fit for our needs. Danielle & Brandon were respectful & caring of our space. We were impressed with the manner in which they ... MORE
JEN (Alstonville NSW, Jan 2019 - 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle are awesome house and dog sitters. They are totally caring and responsible. I would have them again any time and I highly recommend them. Thank you so much for looking after Chica. I am happy to pass on a reference.
JACKIE AND ALLAN (Titirangi North Island, Dec 2018 - 3 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle are a lovely couple who looked after our house for 6 weeks and I would genuinely endorse them to anyone as fantastic house sitters. They were great at prompt communications with us when they had any questions or if something needed our attention. The house was beautifully clean and tidy when we returned, the garden was neat and tidy, and the pool was in in great condition. While we don't have pets as such, (we only have a worm farm that B&D kept going), I know people ... MORE
GLENN (Ponsonby , Aug 2018) From Kiwi House Sitters
No rating Brandon & Danielle will be the first people we call when we are looking for a house sitter again. They were brilliant, very considerate of our home and our dog. We were overseas for 5 weeks and they sent us regular updates on how our dog was doing and we arrived home to an immaculate house and a very happy dog. We are very grateful for the way they both took care of our home and would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a house sitter. I am available to give a reference on ... MORE
JP (Glendowie North Island, Jul 2018 - 1 month 1 week) From Kiwi House Sitters
Brandon and Danielle house sat for me for 3 weeks and I found them to be friendly, thoughtful and considerate. I would not hesitate to ask them to house sit again. I received almost daily reports about Stanley (cat) and he looked like he was thoroughly enjoying himself.
CRAIG (Glen Eden North Island, Jun 2018 - 3 weeks) From Kiwi House Sitters
No rating We have had Brandon and Danielle sit for us twice this past year and we know that when they are in our home, both our house and cats will be cared for and loved. The first time was during the winter of 2017 for three-months while we were in Africa, and again just recently for an extended weekend away. They made it very easy for us while we were away in Africa by providing a picture each day of all the things our cats got up to... Just knowing that things were left with very capable and kind ...
