About Revd Andrew And Mrs Cia Allan:

Cia and Andrew Allan

RESPONSIBLE & MATURE, NON-SMOKING, HOUSE & PET SITTERS FROM UK (CONVERSATIONAL FRENCH SPEAKERS). BOTH WITH CURRENT VALID DBS CHECKS. PASTORS AT OUR LOCAL CHURCH

 

If it fits in with our time off, we'd love to house sit, feed and walk your dogs, cuddle your cats, look after hens, birds, small animals, etc for an occasional couple of weeks or so (no more than 17 days at a time).

 

We both had dogs and cats when growing up, and have also completed house sits with dogs, cats, hens and a snake!  Cia also had a budgie and hens during her childhood which were her responsibility alone.

 

As a married couple, we first had a beautiful black Newfoundland dog called Barney who died at the ripe old age of 12, and at the end of 2016, lost our wonderfully adorable nearly-15 year old Lhasa Apso called Rufus (pictured).

WHAT WE BRING TO THE ASSIGNMENT 

 

*  RESPONSIBLE, MATURE, MARRIED COUPLE

 

*  FRIENDLY.

 

*  COMMITTED.

*  GREAT COMMUNICATIONS - ie: we actually reply to emails and text messages immediately and not just "some time or other" - the way so many seem to approach communications these days!  

We would also keep you informed on arrival times, travel methods, send scans of our flight tickets related to your sit, and probably most importantly, send regular updates, photos and news on the well-being of your pets.

Cia and husband Andrew were wonderful sitters. They looked after our house and cat for a week and we felt confident that they would be very trustworthy. They even went the extra mile by agreeing to look after my son's dog for 3 days at rather short notice. On our return the house was very clean and tidy and the cat in good shape. Thank you both.

Excellent all round. Clearly lovers of animals. Careful with our home and constantly in touch with photos and news of Rufus.

Homeowner in Clitheroe, Lancashire, United Kingdom

Cia and Andrew are a delightful couple, who we immediately liked.
We left our dogs, chickens and house in their very capable hands for a period of 12 days.
They communicated with us throughout our absence and we therefore were very reassured that all was well at home.
The dogs were thoroughly spoiled with lots of walks, treats and cuddles, so I'm sure didn't miss us at all! Despite the very wet weather the chickens were also very well cared for.
We returned to an immaculate house and three very chilled and happy dogs.
I can thoroughly recommend this very professional, trustworthy and caring couple and would be delighted to have them stay again, at any stage in the future.

Homeowner in Romiley, Cheshire, United Kingdom

Cia and Andrew are great housesitters, reliable and accommodating from the start. They were happy to come and meet us before the sit, to put our minds at ease as leaving our cat Kiara is never easy. After the initial messages and then meeting them, we found them to be lovely and friendly couple who were happy to stick to Kiara medicinal and dietary needs.
Throughout the sit Cia kept us well informed and up to date. This ensured us that Kiara was in good hands and well looked after. On our return we found a happy cat and a tidy home, thank you Cia and Andrew!

Homeowner in Axmouth, Devon, United Kingdom

My wife and I were delighted with the way Cia and Andrew looked after our home. We returned to find it clean and tidy, probably tidier than when we left it! They kept the pond clear and fed the fish, who looked happy and contented when we returned. They also cut the grass, which we had not expected but , of course, greatly appreciated.
We had unintentionally left a plated meal in the microwave and I shudder to think what state it was in. Suffice it to say that they dealt with it, cleaned the microwave and we would never have known if we hadn’t asked how things had gone!
We’ll be delighted to have Cia and Andrew again. Next time there will be two cats as well!

Cia and Andrew house sat for us for 8 days recently. We were delighted with them as house sitters and would more than happy to have them house sit again.

A few details in no particular order:

1. They seemed to be very organised people and were reliable ---coordinating with our neighbours as arranged, and telling us about things they they thought we should know about the house and dogs.
2. They responded to emails and texts promptly both beforehand and during the house sitting.
3. They left the house shining when they left.
4. They took good care of the dogs, gave them lots of exercise, and seem to be real dog lovers.
5. They were self sufficient during the house sit and I suspect that they are competent home owners.

Finally, they were friendly and pleasure to talk to for the brief time that we met them.

You would be fortunate to get them as house sitters.
