Recently retired we’ve sold our house and most of our
belongings and are now perpetual travelers!
This lifestyle makes pet/house sitting a win-win alternative to short
term leasing and kenneling your pets when you need to be away from home. We quickly become friends with most
dogs and cats and Dale loves being around horses. We're flexible and open to
discuss your needs and promise to take good care of your home and furry friends
while you are away.
We were homeowners for 40+ years,
absentee landlords for several rental properties, including international
locations in Brazil and Mexico.. We parented an indoor cat for more than 15 years and did house
and/or pet sitting for friends. We understand the importance of
having reliable and safe house sitters – it was sometimes a challenge for us to
locate them for our own homes in the past.
We enjoy getting to know the locals,
experience new places, and spending time with your pets, visiting museums,
attending concerts and plays, cooking, reading, hiking, and driving around new
areas. We also savor quiet times
and can easily entertain ourselves.
We both volunteered at a local SPCA sponsored charity in Fairfield Glade, TN, for a couple years where we enjoy spending time.
You can rest assured that we will respect your property and privacy. Your pets and your home will be treated with
genuine care. We are very honest, responsible, organized, flexible and
friendly. While housesitting we will be
glad to stay in touch by phone or email if you wish; keeping you up to date on
the care and happiness of your pets and condition of your home. If you
wish we will send photos of your pets, water plants, collect mail, etc. In the
past we have welcomed back homeowners with a freshly prepared hot meal.
We would like to arrive in your city at least a day before
your departure and stay in your home. This would give us the opportunity to get
to know each other and for last minute instructions. It is important for us to have a clean,
healthy, pleasant environment and access to WIFI connection in your home.
