This Great Adventure
After 5 years on the road, traveling and house-sitting, I have recently resettled in Lanark County. We'll see how long that lasts!
With many 5-star reviews under my belt (through HSC and other sites), excellent references, and a clear police check, I am now charging for my services .
Self-sufficient and friendly, with clean habits and an active healthy life-style, I very much enjoy the company of animals, and the feeling seems to be mutual.
Our own pets over the years have included the Manchester Terrier, Shepherd, Malamute, Labs, Schnauzer, Marmalade Siamese (Prince Charming 1987-2007), Lizzy the Iguana, and various hardy goldfish. Our four loving sons were raised on the farm, alongside dogs, barncats, peacocks, ducks, geese, chickens, turkeys, pigs, and one summer, a horse.
My first adventures as a registered house- sitter were set on a park-like acreage in Calgary, not far from my eldest son and his new family. Complete with 2 big dogs and 2 cats, it was an idyllic summer and an auspicious start to a new life-style.
Since then, many pets in my keeping have required extra special attention and/or medication.
I'm finding the animal care aspect of this job much more rewarding than anticipated.
With many years of indoor and outdoor renovation projects under my belt, I am alert to negative changes in a building or landscape, and confident in dealing with the trades.
Your home and plants and most importantly, your pets, will be well taken care of so that you can really relax and enjoy your holiday.
I like to keep in touch (through whatsapp, etc) until you are comfortable, and then, as necessary.
If you think I might fit in with your plans, or if you have questions about anything, including rates, simply send a message.
