Animals' Best Friend

25, online English teacher

Hi there! My name is Harli and I am living in New Zealand until July 2021. Animals are my greatest love, but my lifestyle is too transient to have my own right now. My work is online, which also makes pet sitting ideal for me because I can always be home for feeding, walking, and playing. I also use Trusted House Sitters, so I can provide references from there. I always had pets growing up (dogs, cats, a snake), and have a lot of experience pet sitting back in Florida. My baby for eight years was a bull mastiff, so large dogs have a special place in my heart. When she died, I started volunteering with the dogs at my local animal shelter. It helped me just as much as it did them! After college, I worked for Disney's Animal Kingdom before backpacking around Europe for six months. Thanks for checking me out and feel free to ask me anything!

Harli exceeded all our expectations.Our young energetic lab Louie is a handful and Harli managed to burn off some of his energy with lots of walks and games.She has a wonderful way with animals and Louie is still missing her.We would not hesitate to recommend Harli to anyone to housesit as she was very respectful of our property and kept us updated at all times and we hope to see her again in the near future

Hi highly recommend Harli. The house was well looked after and the two boys were very happy. Great correspondence with updates and photos of the boys during the week. Thank you so much!!

We are so so so lucky to have Harli mind our precious dogs. She is very easy going, and lovely to have in our home. Harli is a dog whisperer, as within an hour, she had all 3 dogs snuggled on the couch and near her. She handles three dogs excellently. After getting injured, before we arrived home, Harli took Breezey to the vet, with outstanding kindness and care. Our vet commented on how lucky we are to have such a lovely housesitter. Her continued texts enquiring about Breeze later made us ... MORE

No rating Harli's a star! A natural with dogs, she handled our boy with ease and I'd say Pepper will be missing her for a long long time !!! As will we, no hesitation in recommending Harli and will be first to use her again if she's available. All the best Harli

Harli was fantastic! I was anxious about leaving my dog, who is very people orientated & is vary rarely left alone. From photo updates from Harli I could see he was content & when we returned home, I knew he had bonded with her. Our house was kept clean & tidy. & as we left it. Harli is lovely, loves animals & is a quiet respectful person. I would definitely recommend Harli for housesitting as you will be confident in having animals that will be happy & content on your return. Harli: I ... MORE

Harli was a great house and pet sitter, the dogs enjoyed having her around. And my place was left very clean and tidy.

Harli was at all times very professional and friendly in her communication and planning for our house sit. We would without hesitation have Harli back to care for our dogs and to house sit again. We wish her well with her time in NZ Pip and Richard
