Reliable and considerate sitter

40, Professional

I am a 40 year old professional working in early intervention with children and families in Christchurch , New Zealand. I have a keen sense of adventure and love to travel in my spare time.

My hobbies include reading, Yoga and weight lifting. My children are older and independent so I now have time to experience more for myself.

Pet /house sitting came about for me when helping friends who were travelling. We then connected my mum with a regular pet sitting job. Which resulted in her shifting towns. It has enriched our lives experiencing different locations and meeting lovely people and pets along the way. I really enjoy it and see it as a perfect WIN-WIN situation. You get your pets and house looked after by a reliable, tidy, responsible sitter and I get to experience new locations and adventures,

I love animals and will treat your fur babies like I would my own.
I have experience with many successful house sits. I have looked after multiple dog families small and large, Cats, mice a rural life style block including; 12 chickens, a dog, 2 cats, 2 calves (bottle fed), a pony , three sheep and a cow whew! My daughter helped me and we had the best time. City girls , country experience. Great memories. More recently I have completing longer house sits and more fur babies.

I wish to buy a house next year so this is a way to experience new locations around CHCH and see where feels good.
Through my job I have been police checked, I have work references and house sit references. Your privacy is assured and your house will be respected.
Look forward to hearing from you soon,

Karma was a pleasure to deal with and I came home to happy, relaxed dogs. Would definitely have Karma back to housesit and recommend her to others :-)

We have just returned home after 5 weeks away to 2 very happy, relaxed and obviously well cared for pets and an immaculate home. Karma took amazing care of our pets and home and I have no hesitation in recommending her highly. We are already planning to book her in for our next trip later in the year!

Exceptional house sitter. Superb communication and left the house spotlessly clean. Would thoroughly recommend Karma to other householders.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
