Brian R.D.

65, ESL Teacher

I am 65 years old and retired.
I am very clean and tidy.
I was a Primary School Teacher for 8 years and an ESL Teacher for 16 years. I have excellent work references to support my character.
I love most animals, especially dogs and cats.
I am very fit and active so walking long distances is no problem for me.I can mow lawns and weed your garden as I have green fingers.Do not hesitate to ask me any questions.Thanks.

Our 2 dogs were calm and relaxed when they first met Brian, I knew then we had a great housesitter with Brian. He relayed to any messages very promptly when setting up times to meet and the logistics of coming to the house. During the time we were away, again any messages were answered quickly and he reassured us everything was all ok. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Brian! Wishing you all the best for 2024.

Brian was absolutely amazing house & animal sitter. We have a range of animals from cat, dogs, goat, kunekune pigs, ducks & chickens on our lifestyle block. When we returned all our animals were very happy & our home was cleaner than we left it. Totally recommend Brian to housesit!!

Brian is a great house sitter. Looked after our animals and house really well. Responsive communications. Flexible. And also looked after our plants and kept the outside area really tidy. Highly recommend.

Brian was very flexible with our travel date changes. He took wonderful care of our dog who developed significant health issues. We are so grateful for Brian's caring attitude and enjoyed spending time with him before and after our trip. We came back to a wonderfully clean house and gardens far better than when we left. We absolutely recommend Brian as a caring and considerate house sitter

Brian did a great job of keeping our houseplants well-tended, and our cats happy and fed. He left the house beautifully clean and tidy, and is highly recommended.
