Hello there. My name is Judith and I'm a young at heart mature aged Dutch
woman who is fit, strong, healthy and happy. I am a non-smoker and
By profession, I am an experienced artist / art teacher and have
volunteered at many theatres and schools within this profession.
I love pets, nature, people and gardens. I don't believe looking after
your pets is simply about feeding them or giving them a quick pat. I
genuinely enjoy the company of your animals and will spend and commit
quality time with them to ensure their health and happiness.
As an avid walker, I enjoy having your beloved pet as my company it's a
wonderful bonus to my walking routine!
I am a neat and tidy person by nature and absolutely treat your property
as if it were my own - leaving the house in order each day. I also enjoy
I have been house minding now for 45 months and completed 22 Home and
Pet sits of which 1/3 rd have been repeated and left with happy hosts
& happy pets. I feel this speaks volumes of my high standards, reliability
and integrity, with numerous verbal referees to confirm. I very much enjoy
the freedom and diversity I receive looking after your homes and your
darling pets, along with the stimulation that comes from being within a
new community and all that this has to offer.
I do prefer longer house sits - but am more than happy for you to contact
me if you have short term needs as I may be in between house sits. I do
require good mobile reception and also broadband as I am undertaking some
online studies. I also thrive in clean and airy spaces. I will always
continue to maintain the home environment in this way for you in your
If you think we are a good fit for each other then please don't hesitate
to contact me on 0457393929. I welcome all enquiries and look forward to

Of course, I have my own vehicle and can provide excellent references
of past house sit. I also have police clearance.
Thank you so much for your consideration and I do look forward to helping

with our grown-up sons having just left home we are looking for bit of
adventure. We have done a lot of voluntary work over the last few years,
e.g. book-keeping for charities, work in local country parks (hedge

adults with improving their Maths.
As home owners ourselves, we are used to looking after homes well, as we
are both practical with household chores & repairs.
We are keen gardeners, so when you get back from your holiday, your garden
would look as good as it did when you left. We have had many pets in the
past, but none at present, but often dog-sit for my brother & a neighbour.
We are both keen walkers so dog walking would be a pleasure not a chore.
We are both non-smokers with clean driving licences.
We have both been policed-checked given our work with vulnerable adults &

Available for long term sitting most places, as well as preferred areas.
Country girl at heart. Lover of animals and gardens.
I am a mature lady, who has owned and cared for many homes. I am trained
in Security practices, but no longer work in that industry. I will look
after your home as I would my own.
I am a non-smoker, and only have a drink on very special occasions.
Recently, I have done house sitting for friends and now would like to do
it on a more full time basis. I would prefer long sits, with a minimum of
one month, and preferably up to 3 months or more.
I do have a couple of little toy dogs who are my family, and keep me
company, which means I am very happy to be home at night. They are my
security alert. I have a collapsible outdoor pen for them, and an enclosed
playpen/bed for when they are indoors at night. This means they will not
be running around your home. They are very well behaved, quiet, and will
get along with your pets as well. Please don't let this deter you from
selecting me, as they are actually a benefit to house sitting.
I am a keen gardener, and would love to keep your garden watered.
Please contact me if you have any questions.

- Hi there! My name is Lisa.
I am 28 years old and live in Pakenham with my parents, daughter and son
(2 years old and 9 months old), cat, five chickens, lorikeet, reptiles and
I have a current police check and I am happy to care for pets of
any animal species, from companion pets to farm animals, as well as to sit
for owners of pet free homes. I am drug free, non-smoking, clean,
responsible, caring and respectful. You won't have to provide a thing for
my children as I have port-a-cots for them, as well as portable high
chairs, safety gates etc.
My kids are both very used to animals and are not afraid. They are also
very easy to 'house proof' your house for as I have a playpen and safety
gates for them to keep them away from dangerous / off limits areas in your
home/ property. I also want to make you aware that I am quite
knowledgeable about farm animals and know they can be unpredictable, so
will not be taking my children outside with me to feed and water them, so
you need not be worried about my kids on your farm :D
I have a Certificate IV in Animal Husbandry (Domestic Animals) with
training including dogs and cats, birds, rabbits and guinea pigs, rodents,
fish and reptiles. I also intend to begin working for Wildlife Australia
fostering and rehabilitating injured or abandoned wildlife when my
children begin school.
I have lots of experience with all kinds of animals, having owned and
worked with a large number of different species over the years, including
parrots, chickens, ducks, cats, dogs, fish, reptiles and horses. Due to my
course, I am also quite knowledgeable about health and well being and have
been trained in basic animal first aid.
I have recently begun house sitting full time and am hoping to continue to
do so as it allows me to get out of my mother's hair, and spend some time
alone with the kids. I am more than happy to come and meet you and your
pets and can provide references on request.
I look forward to meeting you and your pet/s!!
