**Looking for petsits in NZ whilst we are waiting for the world to open**

Adrienne and Poppy (14) are a Kiwi mum and daughter fulltime petsitting our way around the world. Over 100 successful petsits completed with awesome references and police check supplied. We are often asked to return and petsit again as homeowners value our professionalism, kindness and love for their pets and our ability to keep them up-to-date whilst they are away.

We will NEVER leave your pet alone if they are anxious or nervous. We have had great success with separation disorder and anxious pets with owners saying their animals are relaxed and happy when they arrive home.

We believe your pet will be happier and more content in their own environment with their familiar routine. We are content with large or modest dwellings; indoor and outdoor pets, we are friendly and non-judgmental.

Dispensing medications or any other out-of-the-ordinary requirements is not a problem - we will follow your instructions to the letter no matter how unusual!

Working from home as a webmaster and homeschooling Poppy means we appreciate fast wifi and to share your unlimited package - and will keep you updated regularly via txt, facebook messenger or email.

Nothing beats the love and attention of a gentle child companion with all the time in the world to play. Experienced in garden, lawn, and pool maintenance and will adapt to your life-flow to keep things routine for your pets.

Snippet from reference: "We highly recommend having someone and coming to house sit for you. We had Adrienne & Poppy house sit for us and look after our cat and I can't speak highly enough. They took care of him better then I think I do. It was nice for him to be in his own environment and pretty sure he didn't even notice we left!"

Snippet from reference: "I would highly recommend Adrienne & Poppy as being resourceful, friendly, and honest, with a love of animals and a passion for learning that leads to appreciating every opportunity that comes their way."

Snippet from reference: "You have done such a fantastic job. I can't express how grateful we are to have had you looking after our dog. What a find you two were."

Snippet from reference: "Thank you for caring so much! I really appreciate how you cared for the house and our boys, it made it easier for us to relax on our trip knowing you were here! They definitely didn't lack anything and that makes my heart very happy."

Adrienne and Poppy were great for our dogs and house. We were kept updated every day with what was happening and how the four legged children were. They left the house immaculate. We also got them to come at very last minute and could completely trust them. Thanks again!

No rating Absolutely fantastic sitter. So very helpful in all ways both during and after sit. I would definitely recommend Adrianne and Poppy as very competitent and had both Harley and Storm eating out of their hands

It was an absolute pleasure to have Adrienne and Poppy come to house sit for us. Such wonderful, interesting people with lots of experience house sitting. We were please to meet Adrienne and Poppy the day before the sit and they stayed with us so we could show them what animal care would be required. They went above and beyond with caring for our dogs- pics daily to reassure us all was well and walks twice daily for our large dogs :) Chooks and fish well cared for and came home to a nice ... MORE
EMILY AND DANNY (Mudgeeraba QLD, May 2019 - 5 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Highly recommend Adrienne and Poppy for house sitting especially with high care need dogs! Adrienne helped prepare our Airbnb for handover and looked after our 3 dogs for 10 days without missing a beat plus handled a few challenging situations for us. Couldn't be happier.

Adreinne and Poppy where great. Understanding and compassionate due to my situation. Patient and very supportive. When you plan a holiday and flood hits the day your supposed to leave they are the team to have! My fur baby's did not miss me. I was happy with that. Interesting people living an alternative lifestyle happy to be of service to my needs while away. Grateful me!
