The Pet Person

58, Farm Consultant

I recently accepted a 6 month secondment to Lincoln, where I will be Regional Leader for the DairyNZ team there. With it only being for a 6 month period (Feb 2020 - Aug 2020), it is impractical for the whole household to relocate, so the thought of house & pet sitting occurred to us. We have 2 dogs (Murphy & Dexter) & a brother & sister cat combo (Clyde & Cleo). I'm very attached to our menagerie of animals & spend a lot of time exercising our energetic pooches, which I'll miss, as well as our talkative cats. As I will be spending a lot of time away from our animals, I'd enjoy the opportunity to spend some time with other peoples' faminals!

Ross was a great sitter. Communication was easy, he was flexible and able to sit for us at short notice which was really appreciated, left the place clean and tidy and our cats were all happy and healthy on our return. Would be more than happy to have Ross back to sit again.

Couldn't recommend Ross highly enough. He took excellent care of our place while we were away along with our animals and kept my vege garden watered. He even managed to do some repairs for us when things went pear shaped (as they always do when you go away). House was left spotless excellent communication and animals were very happy. Couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Ross. Tara will miss you I'm sure, we hope to have you back again one day soon .
