Active non-smoking couple, experienced petsitters
61, RMA Consultant
Hi, we are an active, independent couple looking to met new people and experience new places. Although we've lived in Wellington for the past 36 years, we are relocating to the Bay of Plenty region in 2020 and would welcome any housesit opportunities there. We have enjoyed our house-sitting experiences so far and been able to help others out, spending time in their home looking after much-loved pets. We love to house and pet sit in a range of locations and over the past year have house and pet sat in very rural Spain and more urban situations, relishing the challenges and benefits of all locations. We can provide copies of other references from our house sits in Spain and NZ, all 5-star recommended, in addition to those posted on this site.
At the beginning of 2018, we stepped back from the hectic lifestyle of Chris being a sole practitioner (and Carolyn the administrator) in our Resource Management consultancy to travel and pet-sit Spain and parts of Europe for a year. Chris still has ongoing work and is able to work for clients from almost any location if necessary.
We like to keep active - Chris road cycles every day if he can and Carolyn cycles recreationally and exercises at the gym whenever location allows; we enjoy skiing and walking, exploring new places, food and wine. Our children are in their late 20's and live in NZ and Mexico currently.
We had a Jack Russell cross for over 14 years until he passed away. We saw him grow from a very active puppy and young dog who tested us with his escape-artist feats, to a much slower and needier old boy, so we understand how owners would want someone to spend time with their animals and give them love and reassurance and company.
