We are proud home-owners and experienced pet-sitters, who will treat your home and pets with the same loving care that you do! Please see our glowing reviews at the end of our profile.

We are a reliable, healthy, fully-vaccinated, non-smoking Canadian couple in our early 60's, who are returning to New Zealand to spend more time in one of our favourite places! We have worked in a number of countries and cared for many different homes around the world throughout our careers, including one wonderful year on a teaching-exchange in Auckland in 2002 and 2003.

We will be back in New Zealand starting early-November 2022 to early-April 2023 and will plan our travels around when you need us. We look forward to hearing from you and caring for your home and your pets!

Reviews - (all our pet and house-sitting experiences have been great ones, but since we are new to this website cannot post any featured reviews or ratings yet. However, we thought you'd like to hear from a couple of our most recent home & pet owners and have included their reviews here)

"Janie and Brian were amazing. They took immaculate care of both our condo in Bermuda and, even more importantly, our treasured dachshund 'Liesl'. Doesn't get any better and we highly recommend them to you!"
Kent & Ginnie Stewart

"We have enjoyed worry free holidays for the past ten years, knowing that Janie and Brian are taking excellent care of our country home and our pampered miniature poodle. They are second "parents" to Bucky, and are willing and able to cope with his special needs as he gets older."
