I am a traveller who has just returned to New Zealand after 30 years away with a love, Tracey.
More importantly to you we sit many cats & do lots of dog walks.
I have house sat in many countries around the world. Most recently we have cared for pets in NZ and OZ

Even a Wide verity of pets we're interested such as snake's and Parrots.
We are comfortable dog walkers & experienced with fish, cats.
Cats are Traceys passion..... but we both love walking dogs....
Half sits are on lifestyle blocks & farm's.

Very happy to do chores and keep the home neat clean and tidy. Garden work also possible and other basic chores required , wood chopping or mowing etc.

Tracey & Tom

PS : Please contact us for a link to our Facebook page and to see us on some recent trips & sits with pets on YouTube.
PS : as many 30% of my sits come from people who have been let down by other sitters.
I take a "confirmed" very seriously and naturally expect same respect.

Tom& Tracey are a lovely, kind & caring couple who took excellent care of both my 15 yr old dog and inside cat who both required medication for the duration of the house sit. I arrived home to a lovely clean& tidy house & two very happy pets Can 100% recommend :) Thank you Tom and Tracey!

Thank you so much for taking such a great care of Woody and our home! Loved coming back to our laundry being done and cleaned drain even though we didn't request it. Also thank you for keeping in touch with us by sending texts and photos. Would love to have you back!

I can highly recommend Tom and Tracey and would have them in our home again anytime. The care of our fur babies was superb and the house was immaculate. They are super friendly, and communication was good throughout as well.

A lovely, enthusiastic couple, who were most accommodating when helping me out. I look forward to there return in the future.
LYN (Turangi , Jul 2020 - 4 days)
Tracey and Tom sat at the last moment when another sitter pulled out, which we really appreciated. Both took to our pets straight away, which allowed us to go and enjoy our holiday without concerns. Thanks guys!
JO AND DICK (Taradale , Jul 2020 - 2 days)
So Tom and Tracey did it again...being the best house and pet sitters one could wish for! Thank you so much guys, for looking after our home and our fur babies. You love them like your own, they miss you when you're gone. You go more than the extra mile with making sure the house is spotless on our return and even leaving tasty treats for us. You guys are amazing. We appreciate you and value the services you provide.

Tom and Tracey are delightful house and pet sitters. They are reliable, trustworthy and we're great with our dog and cat. Our dog, Mylo, thought he was in doggy paradise, going for daily walks to the lake or hiking excursions in the hills and to the river. They look after the house beautifully, with us even coming home to laundry being done and house cleaned. Thanks, Tom and Tracey for being the perfect sitters.

Tracey and Tom did a wonderful job caring for our pups whilst we were away. Regular communication including pics and videos showing happy dogs. They didn't seem to miss us at all! The dogs went for plenty of walks aswell which they appreciated.
JANICE (Kilmore VIC, Feb 2020 - 10 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Was totally impressed with these house sitters...how they cared for our pets....our dogs still miss them!! We can not thank them enough for looking after everything when we were away.
ANDREA (Albury NSW, Feb 2020 - 1 week 4 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Tom and Tracey were just lovely. My 3 pets were very well cared for and my home was lovely and clean when we returned. Lots and lots of photos of the pets to keep our minds at rest. Tom and Tracey had their work cut out for them with my two dogs, but you could tell they both loved Tom and Tracey and really enjoyed their daily walks (sometimes 3 x daily!). Thank you so much. Was lovely to meet you both. Happy travels xx
SARAH (Coldstream VIC, Jan 2020 - 6 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Tracey and Tom took wonderful care of our home and our cat Martin. The house was immaculate and any problems around the home were dealt with promptly and effectively. They are wonderful communicators and friendly, warm people to deal with. I would not hesitate recommending them.
CIARA (Enmore NSW, Dec 2019 - 1 month 1 week) From Aussie House Sitters
Came home to a very happy dog and nice clean house Thanks for looking after my baby so well made our holiday so much better to know Ruski was happy and well looked after. Great communication as well
CAROL (One Tree Point North Island, Aug 2019 - 1 month 3 weeks)
Enthusiastic and reliable, Tom has been sitting for us with the Claw Boys on a number of occasions this year, each time he's a pleasure to deal with and makes additional effort to keep in touch to ensure the cats are cared for. Nice to come home to the house immaculate too!
AMBER (Avondale , Aug 2019 - 2 days - 1 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
We felt we left our pets in good care while we were away. I have an elderly dog which required special care which Tom managed well. We were kept well informed of how things were at home. Thanks again Tom
LORRAINE (Kamo North Island, Aug 2019 - 1 week)
Tom takes everything in his stride. He is very diligent...learning about farm systems and getting to know animals/pets (they love him!). It's easy to relax when you know your beloved pets are taken care of and Tom's communication kept us up to date with happening at home. Thanks Tom!
TESSA (Kamo North Island, Jul 2019 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating Tom left the house clean and tidy when we got home. He asked if we wanted some basics for when we arrived home and went and got them for us which was much appreciated. He kept us informed and updated while I was away with photos and video.
NICOLE (Mt Eden North Island, Jul 2019 - 2 weeks 4 days)
Thanks Tom - came home to very happy well cared for animals who obviously hit it off with Tom. Great communication - kept in the loop while we were away. Would be happy to have Tom sit again.
FRANCES (Onerahi North Island, Jun 2019 - 1 week 2 days)
Tom did a great job looking after our property, livestock and pets. Feeding our two cows, chickens and keeping the ducks at bay kept him on his toes. He sent us lots of updates on how things were going at home. By the time he left our dogs were his best friends. Very happy with all he did. Thank you Tom.
SANDRA & JOS (Parua Bay North Island, May 2019 - 1 week 2 days)
Tom is a pleasure to deal with, trustworthy and felt comfortable leaving the cats and our home in his care. Returned to a lovely tidy home - welcome again.
AMBER (Avondale North Island, Apr 2019 - 3 days - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
Tom looked after our 2 cats and dogs for 3 weeks. He is friendly, out going and sent constant updates and photos of the animals. I think the dogs (Marmite & Peanut) had the time of their lives, they went every where with him. We came home to a nice tidy house, a bottle of milk in the fridge and peanut trying to break out to follow him, in fact the dogs they didn't really care that we were home. So all in all a good first experience with Kiwi house sitters and leaving my animals for that length ... MORE
YVONNE (Whangarei North Island, Apr 2019 - 21 days)
Tom and Tracey were the perfect house sitters for my cottage and goofy dog. They were easy-going, communicative and clearly took Ollie to heart and i returned to a very happy and relaxed dog. I have no hesitation in giving these guys the very highest recommendation - Jerry, Titirangi
JERRY (Titirangi North Island, Feb 2019 - 5 days)
Came home to a spotless home and animals that were very well cared for and I might add also spoilt. Tom you clearly have a love for animals. Thank you. Best of all was the frequent messages and video so we were kept informed as to houw things were going at home. Thank you both so much. 5/5
KATHERINE (Kumeu , Jan 2019 - 4 days)
Thank you for lovely review. Lovely when people notice as you did. Sitting is a nice mutual benefit and we like to make it pleasant to come home as you left for us.
Unfortunately we had to cancel this housesit due to a bereavement - Tom was extremely understanding of the situation and has messaged us since, he was very easy to communicate with. We were sorry not to meet Tom as he sounded like the perfect sitter for us and wish him all the best.
LIZ (Winton South Island, Oct 2018 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating Tom was great. Both our dogs were happy & healthy on our return. Tom kept us updated with regular photos which was great and helped us out with a few errands. Would gladly have him back at our house.
SAPNA (Mosgiel , Sep 2018)
No rating Tom did a good job looking after my 2 dogs. They were happy and sare. He voluntarily did some cleaning of my car as well which was much appreciated. He was honest and a good communicator keeping me informed and updated while I was away. Thanks Tom.
