About Me
I am a professional single female, who primarily works via the computer. I have excellent house-sitting and personal references. I am quiet living, healthy, NS & ND and enjoy long hikes and walks. 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 10 years. I have done sits in Bearspaw, SW Calgary, Elbow Valley (Golf Course) and Mount Royal in Calgary, Discovery Ridge, Lakeview, Priddis and 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 opportunity to explore Canada in a greater way.

Current Availability. Minimum timeline is 2 weeks preference will be given to longer sits.

I would like to house-sit well organized clean homes which will be returned the same way.

My Experience
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.

Preferences will be given to all house sitting opportunities in the areas of Lakeview, Springbank, Aspen, Elbow Valley, Elbow Springs, Signal Hill, Garrison Woods, Dewinton, Legacy, Spruce Meadows. I am also keen to sit in the interior of BC including the Kootenay areas.

Professional References available.

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.

Annette - Ladysmith BC June/July 2019

Mia sends cuddles .
Best wishes

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.

"We really went out of our comfort zone in getting someone unknown to look after our home and especially our dog Benji. Lee-ann met us a couple of weeks prior to our departure and made us feel at ease and Benji was quite comfortable with her as well. .As a result of this visit we decided we would give this a try, it was the right choice. Benji and our home were well looked after, we can't thank Lee-ann enough. She is a great ambassador for House Sitters Canada and definitely gave us the ... MORE
MIKE ( Alberta, Nov 2023 - 2 weeks 3 nights)
Lee Ann was a wonderful house sitter! She took great care of our cat and garden, and left the house sparkling clean after her stay. She communicated well and was reliable. I would highly recommend Lee Ann as a house sitter!
KARIN ( British Columbia, Aug 2023 - 10 days)
Lee-ann impressed us from the outset by being an attentive and effective communicator. She is organized and asked good questions upon arrival. Her manner and maturity gave us confidence while we were away, as did the updates she sent. Our home was clean and tidy upon return, and we could barely tell someone had lived there for 2 weeks. Indoor plants, garden, greenhouse and outdoor flowers were thriving, and the gas tank in the car that we loaned Lee-ann was filled. No complaints. Would have ... MORE
CHRIS ( Territories, Aug 2022 - 16 days)
Lee-anne looked after my home and more importantly, my dog during, a very cold period over Christmas 2021 and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Lee-anne is very ethical, clean and kind. Although my dog was happy to see me return, I am certain he misses her. She communicated very well with me through the whole process and I felt very comfortable and confident leaving my home and cherished pet in her hands. I came home to a clean house and everything in place. I have recommended her ... MORE
ROSANNE ( Alberta, Dec 2021 - Two Weeks)
Thank you Rosanne for the kind and thoughtful accolades. Lucky was such a wonderful dog to look after. So gentle, obedient and just a ball of fun! Had it been warmer I think we would have both had many more fun walks led by him. :))) What a little trooper he was in such cold weather. I would sit ... MORE
Lee ann did a great job taking care of our 2 dogs and home. Our dogs were very relaxed and happy immediately when they met her and were very happy when we arrived home. The house was well taken care of and clean when we arrived home. We would easily have Lee ann back to care for our home and dogs anytime!
MICHELLE ( Alberta, Dec 2021 - 4 days)
Five stars all around, We selected Lee ann from a number of people and couples interested in our home, Lee ann was a unanimous choice of ours. We are extremely pleased with the whole experience. Lee ann met and exceeded all of our expectations of a house sitter and would ask her again to look after our property and pet. We had an unexpected emergency occur over a long weekend with the plumbing. Lee ann took care of the situation with very little support from us, this included ... MORE

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
