Location:

Fairfield Glade, Tennessee

Description:

Recently retired we have sold our house and most of our belongings and are now perpetual travelers!  We lived in timeshares consistently for over 2 years. 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 someone for our own pet/homes in the past.   We enjoy getting to know the locals... read more
