I can dog sit (well behaved) dogs and some short-haired cats. Cannot do rodents and birds. I can assist with some outdoor chores. Good internet service is a requirement for where I am sitting.
I have many sitter references for the past 8 years. I have done sits in Bearspaw, SW Calgary, Elbow Valley (Golf Course) and Mount Royal in Calgary Lakeview well beyond including several BC locations and the Yukon. Please see referrals below.
For the most part I do not ask my clients to post endorsements, they offer these. I am on another site with several references I can share.
I enjoy house sitting because it's given me an opporutunity to explore Canada in a greater way.

I would like to house-sit well organized clean homes which will be returned the same way.
As a previous homeowner and business owner, I have a keen observation for anything that needs to be done or attended to. I enjoy lawn cutting, raking, and general garden/outdoor flower garden care. I have good experience house-sitting dogs and these have all been positive. If you need relief from your small business I also may be able to help out. My current work schedule allows me to be relatively flexible.

Lee-Ann was a wonderful sitter for my dog Boo He had a small problem that needed vet attention and Lee-Ann contacted me immediately. She left nothing up to chance and I am grateful for that. There were many cuddles and walks!!! Thanks so much Lee-Ann!!!
Tina - Edmonton August 2021
Lee Ann cared for our home and 3 cats for 2 weeks while we were away. Right from the beginning, she was considerate and reliable - agreeing to come and view the house and meet the cats before we left. We quickly felt very comfortable with Lee Ann and happy she agreed to sit. During our absence Lee Ann kept in touch by text whenever necessary and when we arrived home our cats were happy and healthy and our home immaculate! Thank you so much Lee Ann for an outstanding job! We would highly recommend Lee Ann for anyone wanting a mature, reliable house sitter!

Absolutely Perfect! We feel very lucky to have found Lee-ann. She was amazing! And we would love to have her come again to look after Bella and our home. She was prompt in all of her communication with us right from the start. She was available for a meet and greet prior to the sit. At the beginning of the sit, she arrived with ample time to be able to show her around. We were kept informed on a regular basis and she sent some pretty cute pics of Bella. The dog was in heaven and I am sure misses Lee-ann a lot. We came home to a very clean and tidy home and a fresh jug of milk in the fridge for the next morning's coffee. She even laundered the towels and sheets. THANK YOU! You are a dream.

Lee-ann is a mature, professional, self-sufficient, resourceful, respectful, and experienced sitter who cared for our home, garden, and two standard poodles while we were away for two weeks. She kept us updated with newsy texts about their activities and we were confident that all was well at home. We arrived back to a clean home and healthy dogs who were demonstrably sorry to see Lee-ann leave. She stayed with us the night before we left and again the evening after we arrived back, which allowed us a little time to get acquainted. We would enthusiastically invite Lee-ann back to our home and we recommend her with full confidence.

Michelle - Calgary Alberta House / Pet sitting Reference
Lee-ann looked after our 2 dogs and house while we travelled overseas for three weeks.
She was extremely professional to deal with and gave us frequent updates while we were away. We returned to our house allot cleaner than we left it and would not hesitate to ask Lee-ann to house sit for us.
Denise - CNP Alberta House / Pet sitting Reference
She was great! Walked the dog, fed the cats, watered plants, did laundry, vacuumed and generally did everything we asked and more. Very solid citizen to have in your home. Always pleasant and great to have in our home. Couldn't have been more pleased. Came home to a spotless home that had everything in its place....better than normal!
Marleis - Calgary House / Pet sitting Reference
Lee-ann is honest and trustworthy. She stayed in my home for 2 weeks and I would have her come again any time. I highly recommend her, it was a real piece of mind having her in my home while I was away.
Ellen - Whitehorse, Yukon House / Pet sitting Reference
Lee ann Harder is a very reliable house-sitter. I have rated her as a 5 out of 5 in all areas. Anyone who trusts their home and pets to Lee ann will not be disappointed.
Jane - Protection Island BC.House / Pet sitting ReferenceLee-Ann looked after our house for two months. The house is on an island so requires that residents be organized and self sufficient. We have a very old cat that requires medication..and quite a bit of attention. Lee-ann rose to the challenges of both. Our house was clean and tidy when we returned.
Heather -Calgary, Alberta
Lee-ann was our house and dog sitter for a month (January, She did an excellent job looking after everything. I contacted her about a small travel crisis we were having and she handled it very well. She is fully capable of looking after a home and pet when the owners are away. We came home to a dog who was happier than when we left.
Mark - Bragg Creek - Character Reference
I lived in close proximity to Lee-ann for a number of years. She was very trust-able, considerate, clean, and thoughtful.
