No Worries

66, Retired

I am a responsible, reliable and reasonably handy former corporate professional willing and able to do light maintenance, gardening and, of course, look after your beloved 4 legged family members. I love to travel, meet new people and feel at home wherever I go. I'm well organized, neat and tidy and will always treat your home and pets as if they were my own.

Why I want to house sit

In addition to loving animals, I am looking to explore as much of the world as possible to seek out a location I might ultimately call home. Housesitting allows me to see what "living" in an area would be like vs just having the vacation experience found by staying in hotels and resorts.

My experience

I am a former homeowner as well as cottage owner and have also had (cats) and cared for pets (dogs and cats) in the past. As a seasoned traveller, I am quick to adapt to new surroundings and love taking in new cultural experiences. I know the value and importance of someone else's home and especially understand the importance of providing love and care for your pets. My goal will always be to ensure you return home to find everything exactly the way that you left it.

Craig was a wonderful house/pet sitter. I really appreciated talking to him on FaceTime before the sit. He was here before I left for the airport and also waited until he knew my plane was leaving Calgary when I came home, before he left the house. He kept me updated on my cat and sent me pictures. I returned home to a clean and tidy house and a very contented cat. As an added treat there was fresh cream in the fridge for my coffee! I was able to enjoy a worry and stress free holiday. I ...

Craig was an outstanding sitter and I'd have him back whenever possible. He kept in touch, left the house in great condition, very clean, and my cat Purdy and indoor plants were thriving when I returned. He was very good in communicating about the plans for arrivals and whatever I asked about while away. Craig is a very responsible, kind, and trustworthy guy, and I highly recommend him.
JAN ( British Columbia, Jan 2022 - 2 months 3 weeks)
I was so happy to have Craig take care of my home and my old cat Olive. She can be a challenge, but he got her relaxing on his lap and looking very peaceful. He sent me pictures. Craig went over all the details of the house and I felt confident that should anything happen he would know what to do. Thank you Craig for allowing me to go away and relax knowing Olive was in good hands.

Craig is a gem of a human. And a wonderful sitter. His communication was clear, he was flexible and attentive to my long list of wants and needs for my dear Scruffy. He cared beautifully for my dog and left my house in great shape. Highly recommended!
GENEVIEVE (Canmore , Aug 2021 - 2 weeks)
Craig was awesome! We met him beforehand and he was very personable. Our friend had given us his name as she was so pleased with everything at her house with her dogs. Our house looked great and all our very numerous plants were well taken care of and thriving. Puma can not tell us how he enjoyed being with Craig, but I am sure that he echoes Craig's comments. He was a happy, contented cat on our return. We would not hesitate to use Craig as a house sitter again.
VALERIE (Sunset Ridge Cochrane Alberta, Jul 2021 - Two weeks)
Craig is just wonderful. He looked after my 2 dogs with great care and love. One of them was having hip discomfort due to old age, he was so patient and helpful with him which I can't thank Craig enough. He kept me informed by sending me photos and videos of my dogs. My house was spotless, clean and everything was in perfect order with I returned. Craig put my mind at ease while I was away knowing that my dogs are in 'good hands'. I really appreciated Craig and definitely will have him ... MORE
