Glen and Jo



We are a couple from North Shore, Auckland in our early 50s, non-smokers. Over the years we had dogs, cats, rabbits and birds. We also took care of sheep, goats, duckas and chickens. We both are fully vaccinated. We are very capable and practical and enjoy being around animals of all sizes.

Jo is very passionate about animals and has a certificate in animal care with focus on dogs, cats and birds.
Glen is a handyman who loves to build and fix things.

We have a small 9 year old dog, Tibetan Terrier (similar size to a small cavoodle, see photo), who travels with us. She is fully house trained, very well behaved, loves other animals (especially dogs, cats and birds) and very friendly.
Tibetan Terriers are not actually terriers, they are non-shedding, non-allergenic dogs with beautiful loyal temperament.

Wow, consider yourself lucky if Glen, Jo and Jet offer to house sit for you. They really are the dream team. I came hope to two happy dogs and an immaculate house. Their communication was excellent as well. Highly recommend!

Thanks again Glen & Jo for house sitting on such short notice, we came home to house clean and tidy and some happy animals. Love having you both, we know our home and animals are in good care. Nice being able to go away and not worry about a thing. Hope to see you guys again in the future, our home is always open if you want to stop for a cuppa.

Hey Guys just wanted to say thanks again you guys went above and beyond. House was cleaner than when we left it and thank you so much for carting all that firewood saved us alot of work. Finn even got a bath. We would love to have you both and Jet B back anytime. If you're ever driving passed kettles always on and if we're not home you know where the spare key is.

We met Glen, Jo and Jet prior to them house sitting for us. They are a lovely friendly couple and we felt very comfortable leaving them in charge of our animals and house. Our dog, Duke and Jet became good friends immediately. Our chickens also did not mind Jet. We came home to a nice clean house, happy dog, well fed chickens and nice home made bread for our dinner. We can highly recommend them and would be happy to use their services again.

Glen and Jo stayed for around 2 weeks and cared for my herd of pet goats. They were very good with communication, motivated and interested in learning more about the animals and showed a great deal of care for them and initiative.Taking time with them bonding and feeding them daily. When a tree fell down over the paddock fence,Glen contacted me and went into action putting up a temporary fence.I was so relieved that things were under control in capable hands.And very grateful.
