Exploring NZ via your lovely pets



Hi there, we're Chris and Sam. We are from the UK (Edinburgh, Scotland is our much-missed home) and very excited to be spending a year together in New Zealand. We love animals and would be delighted to spend some quality time with your four-legged (or two-winged or finned) friend and take good care of your home.

I (Chris) owned a cat in the UK, and we have spent much of the last year looking after dogs and cats for extended periods across Australia - through Aussie House Sitters (please see our reviews, linked to this account). We also previously pet sat for friends in the UK. We have experience in providing dogs and cats with complex diets and medication.

We're very clean and tidy people and will be sure to take good care of your home, too. I have included some recent AirBnB reviews on our profile photos.

We are house sitting in Blenheim at the moment until mid-August, with loose plans to travel elsewhere in the South Island after that. Feel free to get in touch wherever you are, as we have flexible plans and you may tempt us elsewhere!

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to ask.

Chris and Sam were wonderful housesitters. We only had an hour and a half to explain how everything worked and they managed exceptionally well. The dogs were content and well looked after. Our house was tidy and clean - could not have asked for more. We would thoroughly recommend Chris and Sam for future house sits and wish them all the best for the new year and whatever their travels bring.

Absolutely wonderful house sitters and I would recommend them to anyone! We came home to a tidy house and happy pets :) Chris and Sam are lovely, polite and trustworthy people who kept great communication throughout our time away. Great housesitters and I could not recommend them enough! Thank you Chris and Sam! :)

Chris and Sam did a great job looking after our house and even more so looking after our dog Bowie. This was the longest Bowie had ever been away from us and when we returned, he was content, happy and showed no signs of stress from our absence. He showed signs of missing Chris and Sam and looked for them all over the neighborhood for a few days after they left, so we could tell that he really liked them. Chris and Sam were good at keeping us updated while we were away, so that we were able to ... MORE

It was such a pleasure to meet Chris & Sam and to know that Archie & Sami were in good hands...and they were in very good hands, no doubt about that!! They were very well looked after and it looked as though Archie had put on some weight ...which was a very good thing! Chris & Sam are a delightful couple, couldn't have asked for better house-sitters. We felt very comfortable leaving our pets in their care, they did a fantastic job - not only looking after our pets; but our home too. It was as ... MORE
KERRY & LESLIE (South Melbourne VIC, Jul 2019 - 1 week 1 day) From Aussie House Sitters
We were 2 and a half weeks out without a sitter for Oscar & Cleo. So, desperate to find a couple to look after our fur babes and our home. We met Chris & Sam ...... delightful, mature couple and immediately felt comfortable with them. We introduced them to our pets and the rest is history. Chris and Sam looked after our pets and our home for nearly 9 weeks. We had regular contact and they sent us lots of photos . Any issues with the home were dealt with immediately with Chris informing us ... MORE
KATE (Seddon VIC, May 2019 - 2 months) From Aussie House Sitters
From our first contact, we found Sam and Chris to be excellent communicators who responded promptly to messages. Our dog had a health setback just before we left and they took it in their stride and kept us informed as he recovered, which we were most grateful for. We found them to be very reliable and resourceful and we came home to find a tidy house, with our dog obviously contented and well cared for. We would happily recommend Sam & Chris for other pet/housesits.
