Retired professional married Kiwi couple

We are a quiet, respectful, well travelled Kiwi couple in our 50's and will be with your pet during the day as well as evenings as we are both retired.

We would love to look after your cats, dogs, pets and give them all the attention they desire. We are experienced with pool maintenance and have had pools ourselves. We'll also take care of house plants or gardens that need watering while you are away.

Garth is a good handyman and can solve any issues that may arise.

When you return, your fur babies will be happy and your house will be clean and tidy and a pleasure to walk into.

We are non smokers, have been ID verified and have clean Police checks which we are happy to provide.

Both of us are fully (triple) vaccinated against Covid.

If possible we will meet you and your pets before the sit so we can go over any details and expectations and get to know each other a bit. We're also more than happy to do a video call if we aren't able to meet in person. Once we have confirmed dates we will block these out in our calendar so you won't have to worry about your trip.

Feel free to send us a message if you'd like to know more!

Debbie and Garth are fantastic house/pet sitters. We would not hesitate to recommend them. They are very kind and caring people who took great care of our house and more importantly such loving care of our cat. It was a great comfort for us to know our cat was so well looked after. The house was left spotless and they even went over and above and fixed the shower for us and mowed the lawns off their own doing. Their communication was excellent, always responsive and kept us updated. They are ... MORE

Debbie and Garth were great. We came home to happy cats and a lovely tidy and clean house. Debbie gave us updates on how the cats were doing and we were able to relax and enjoy our time away. Thanks again for doing such a fantastic job. Highly recommended.

Excellent sitters, Debbie and Garth with great regular communication which was really appreciated. Skye is happy and the house was left lovely and clean. Yes, I'd love to have them back again. Thanks so much.

We were so grateful to have Debbie & Garth taking care of Evie and Chester, and our house whilst we were away for a lovely, long break. The communication was top notch right from first enquiring, and the regular updates while away helped us fully relax and not worry about what was going on at home. We have returned to an immaculate house (+ treats on the bench!), and beautifully groomed pets. Thanks so much Debbie & Garth, we hope you are available for our next holiday!

Thank you Debbie & Garth for taking care of our house and our cats (Sky & Sapphire). We really appreciated the updates whilst we were away and thank you for leaving the house so clean and tidy. We will certainly ask you to house-sit again for any future trips we have. Highly recommend Debbie & Garth - excellent communication with them and care taken of our house.

Debbie and Garth are wonderful sitters. Our cats have never looked better! They are happy and have obviously been well cared for. They left our house immaculate and watered and cared for our garden. Thank you so much and we would love to have you sit for us again! I can recommend Debbie & Garth without hesitation.

Debbie and Garth looked after our cat Jessie and our house for 3 weeks. I found them very easy to communicate with. Debbie messaged me frequently with updates on how Jessie was doing which I really appreciated. We are very please to have had them stay and hope one day to get them back again. We had new sitters come to take over from Debbie and Garth when they left. They communicated with the new sitters to arrange change over making it very easy and stress free for us. We are very ...
