Senior Explorer

69, retired

COVID-19 Message.
Depending on travel restrictions and other measures that our governments may take I may be available. I still have the summer months as not available, but it may be cancelled or I may not be able to do it due to travel restrictions. Then I would be available as long as inter province and/or intercity travel is allowed.

Active senior explorer who is responsible and reliable wants to house sit for you and give your pets loving care.

You may wonder..

Does she have experience looking after the house and pets?
You bet! I was a manager in the hospitality industry where a clean house and attention to detail is extremely important. For many years I was on the board of a housing co-op and dealt with planning,maintenance and repairs.
Friends and family have entrusted the care of their pets to me. I stayed at their home or their pet stayed with me.
I will leave your house in the same state as it was when you left.

Is she trustworthy?
The local bank and the clients trusted me! I worked for over 15 years for a large Canadian bank, had to be bondable to work at a bank. I also appreciate the importance of privacy.

Can I trust her with my pets?
Yes, I have experience.I have owned a few dogs during my life from small to larger size, and cats too. I have been a relief dog sitter for the local Autism Dog Service group for many years. Usually larger dogs.
While on a dog sitting assignment I had to nurse a miniature Poodle after two major and serious operations, never knowing if she would survive, administering medications every few hours for several weeks. I hadn't exactly signed up for that, but this sweet dog was not going to die on my watch. She has completely recovered and is again a happy and healthy dog.

Why would she want to do this?
I love to experience new places from a resident's perspective and explore. What better way to do that then walking your dog?
House sitting is a great way of slow and sustainable travel, explore and help out with house-and pet-sitting so that you can travel without worries.

A few more things about me:
I am a healthy senior living an active lifestyle. A lifelong cyclist, was on the executive of a local cycling club. I like taking long walks and I am perfectly content spending time at home reading and listening to music, also guilty of some binge watching of Netflix. Non-smoker.
Valid D/L, clean driving record. Police check? Done.
References? Yes.

When I have finished a house sit I will give my endorsement and as a matter of courtesy I expect your endorsement in return.

My experience as a pet and house sitter has been very positive and I now start to have repeat pet and house sits and referrals.
Thank you to all who trusted me with your pets and your homes, I feel so honoured to do this.

Paula was a blessing for us and Poncho. Not only did she take perfect care of our precious old puppy, but the house was impeccable. Paula kept us up to date regularly with photos and anecdotes of their walks and adventures in Montreal. I would recommend her without hesitation. She is caring and attentive, delicate, calm, clean and organized. No doubt she will be visiting us again. Highly recommended!

Thanks Magali and Valeria for the wonderful review. Hoping to meet you and Poncho again in Spring! Thanks, Paula
No rating I can't begin to say enough about Paula. From our initial correspondence to our face to face meeting, I felt completely confident that I had chose the perfect House/Dog Sitter. She researched the dogs to find out what types of personalities she would be dealing with, which impressed me immensely. Her care and concern for our dogs was second to none. They were her top priority. Upon our return from holidays, our house was immaculate and our dogs were obviously well taken care off. After ... MORE
