House sitting and Pet sitting
I have been looking after peoples homes and their pets for over 20 years. After spending 2015 travelling, working, and staying with people and looking after their homes and properties throughout the UK, I decided to come back to Tasmania and further develop my house sitting as a lifestyle choice by creating this website and offering my services to a wider audience.
My service is professional, and as mentioned above, it is based around long term experience. As mentioned throughout this website, this is not a membership site. It is an independent website – that is, you deal directly with me. I am the house sitter. There are no third parties or a string of members (who could be anyone..) who may get access to your information and your assets.
It is this personal service that minimises risk (and managing and minimising risk is something I was/am very familiar with in my previous career with the Department of Treasury and Finance – particularly in compliance matters as a Government Inspector in Liquor and Gaming) and ensures greater levels of confidentiality and privacy for the householder/home owner.
I set high standards when I am entrusted to look after peoples properties. Simply put, I look after your home and property the way you would.
I consider both long and short term stays – depending on the location, and of course my bookings. Generally speaking longer term stays are prioritised, that said, I often have vacancies (please check the ‘Availability’ tab on the Home Page) available for shorter term house sits.
My services are negotiable. That is, depending on the assignment and the requirements and the responsibilities during the stay, we agree on a payment or exchange that works for everyone. Generally speaking, the more benefits or features associated with an assignment, equals a reduced payment structure or fee.
My fees are very competitive and offer great value for discerning home owners who value professional experienced help with what is their major asset and the care of their pets.
My services are flexible and adaptable. That is, house sits or pet sits can be conducted in a way that your prefer. For example, this may include a daily visit to check your property and feed your pets as opposed to living on site.
For example some householders choose to offer the use of a car, electricity, food, internet and associated services/equipment, whereas some other house/pet owners do not provide some of these things. The use of the above (as an example) considerably reduces house sitting and pet sitting fees.

I also offer dog walking and exercising services in Hobart, and throughout Tasmania, when I am staying in certain regions or areas. You may not have the time, the health, or the fitness to walk or exercise your dog anymore? Or perhaps, you might just need a little help occasionally? If that is your situation, don’t worry – I do!
Dogs respond so much better to regular exercise; they are fitter, healthier, less inclined to develop behavioural problems, and of course they are happier.
Bringing in some extra help and companionship can be a wonderful way to stimulate your dog/s – and it gives them another trusted friend to play with!
For more information about how I can help you, please email me via the contact page with the email title heading ‘Dog Walking Enquiry’. I generally respond within 24 hours.
