Genuine animal lovers, trustworthy and responsible
49, Mechanical Design Engineer
We are an honest reliable couple who both love animals. We enjoy travelling (both in New Zealand and overseas) and would love the opportunity to take care of your pets and home while experiencing different parts of the country. We understand the importance of having someone you trust looking after your animal family and home, to give you peace of mind while away. We both enjoy the countryside and are happy to stay in "out of the way" places.
We have owned a lifestyle property with dogs, cats and horses, and our pets were very special to us. Our dogs and cats have all sadly passed on, and the horses gone to new homes; we have down-sized our property and are taking some time to travel before welcoming more pets into our home.
I enjoy riding horses and am a keen amateur photographer. Pete loves to go paragliding. We both enjoy exploring in our campervan. We are both self employed and working part-time (myself a Planner and Pete an Engineer), giving us the flexibility to travel. Pete is a very practical person and a good handyman. We are both non-smokers. As home owners ourselves we are committed to keeping a clean and tidy home, and we are respectful of others' privacy.
We have experience in administering medications and special diets during our pets' later years. In the last few years we have often looked after cats and dogs for friends and family, either in their own home or in our home, while their owners were away. I have also spent some time volunteering at the SPCA cat shelter.
At present we are interested in short North Island sits only while we complete a building project. In February of 2020 we plan to take our campervan to the South Island, and will be available for sits particularly in the Nelson/ Marlborough area.
