Veterinary Clinic Assistant.

We are an active non smoking semi retired Kiwi couple.
We have had small businesses and rental properties for 30 years and owned many pets, we are familiar with pool and house maintenance.
Jackie has been a veterinary assistant.
Our prefererence is for a small dog and or cats who also have inside/outside access to a fenced area so we are able to go out for up to half a day visiting or exploring the area.

We are only available in houses which are smoke free.

We are a trustworthy couple and can be relied on to follow all instructions in regard to the care of your property and pets.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
Jackie & Tony

I cannot thank Jackie and Tony enough for the care they took of Socks, our cat, and our home. They arrived the night before, as I get a bit anxious before leaving Socks, and straight away I felt relaxed and knew our companion and home were in the best hands. Jackie communicated well, giving me updates and sending me a merry Christmas from Socks, with photo attached. We arrived home to a spotless home ( I must apologize Jackie as I see I missed cleaning the slop bucket and kettle, which you have ... MORE

Great house sitters! Communication was great, house was immaculate and Percy was a very happy cat :) Wouldn't hesitate to have them back!

Thankyou Jocasta �
Jackie and Tony helped us out at very short notice, when we had to go out of town for a funeral. They are a lovely couple and even though it was our first meeting, we felt confident leaving them with our two dogs and cat. Communication was excellent, they always replied promptly and kept us up to date with text messages. We came home to content pets and a clean and tidy house. We'd definitely recommend them to other pet owners and hope that we can use them again in the future.
MICHELLE (Bethlehem , Jun 2021 - 3 days)
I felt very comfortable indeed leaving my house and cat Mindy in Jackie and Tony's capable hands. They are a mature couple (which is why I felt so comfortable with them in the house) who communicated with the occasional photo of Mindy and I found the house immaculate on my return. Many thanks indeed Jackie & Tony.
CHRISTINE (Pyes Pa North Island, Apr 2021 - 2 weeks)
Thankyou Christine for your kind review and look forward to any future sits!
Excellent house sitting from Jackie and Tony. I came home to a sparkling house and happy, well-cared for cats (despite their insistence of starvation and neglect, their appearance shows otherwise!).
HEATHER (Welcome Bay North Island, Mar 2021 - 1 week)
Ha, loved the humour. Yes, their every whim was catered for! Lovely home. Was a pleasure Heather.
We feel very lucky to have had our cat and house looked after by such kind and responsible people. Jackie and Tony house sat for us at very short notice and we were very grateful for their help. They took care of everything perfectly and we would love to have them back again.
TAMMY (Tauranga South , Mar 2021 - 3 days)
Thankyou both for your kind review. You were very welcome and look forward to sitting again.....
Jackie and Tony are amazing! We couldn't have asked for a more lovely, trustworthy and caring couple to look after our home and fur babies whilst we went away. Jackie and Tony made the time to come meet us prior to our holiday which was so lovely. When we were away we got little updates about our pets and felt so at ease they were in great hands. When we arrived home it was immaculate, even the washing had been done and some lovely treats left for us. Thank you so much to you both, you made ... MORE

Awe shucks, thankyou, we so appreciate your kind review.
My first house sit experience so I was slightly apprehensive but Jackie and Tony couldn't have been better. Looked after my home and my timid old dog beautifully and kept in touch so I was able to feel reassured and enjoy my week away. Would love to have you back!
ELIZABETH (Ohauiti North Island, Jan 2021 - 1 week)
Thankyou Elizabeth we appreciate your kind review and so glad you were able to relax and enjoy your trip......love to sit again!
We are super grateful and impressed with the house sitting of Jacki and Tony. Attention to detail like watering of garden care of Ruby and pigeon up dates was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. House immaculate on return. I'm still finding little surprises in my pantry ( Xmas Dessert) & freezer. Awesome series of communication and up dates. We are super grateful and would highly recommend Jacki and Tony for house sitting. Thank you.
ROSE (Omanawa Road , Dec 2020 - 1 week 3 days)
Thankyou Rose, We had a lovely sit and happy to come again when you go on your next 'safari'....Happy 2021. T&J �
Jackie and Tony responded quickly to our ad and keep us well informed while we were away. They did a fantastic job house sitting our dog and cat and it was nice to come home to a clean and tidy house even the washing folded. Would reccomend to anyone who wants someone trustworthy and responsible to look after their house and pets.
MICHAEL (Bellevue North Island, Dec 2020 - 1 day)
Thankyou Micheal.....appreciate your kind review. Until next time, all the best for 2021. �

MARGARET (East Taieri South Island, Aug 2020 - 1 week)
Jackie and Tony were great to deal with and looked after Mitzy and our house perfectly. Would thoroughly recommend them.
LORETTA AND ANDREW (Bridge Hill South Island, Jul 2020 - 5 days)
Wow! Jackie and Tony were just fantastic for our boys. Communication from the get go was fantastic. We have two dogs with very different personalities but as soon as Jackie walked in she was cuddling Oscar who doesn't usually like to be picked up. Unfortunately I was a bit stressed before they arrived and had printed out instructions, however Jackie texted me later that day just to check if the boys did get fed in the evening which they do do but I had left it off the instructions! Was so ... MORE
PIP (Grenada Village North Island, Jul 2020 - 3 days)
Thankyou Pip, we so appreciate your favourable review and kindness, it was a pleasure to know you all!
Jackie and Tony were a last minute request as my usual house sitters had a tangi. They drove down from Whakatane to look after our property and did an excellent job. We have one cat and a large garden. I had a few seedlings that needed lots of TLC and they received that. Would have them again anytime.
HILARY (Napier North Island, Feb 2020 - 5 days)
Thankyou Hilary....it was such a pleasure to house/pet sit for you. We loved your gardens and casual atmosphere. We would love to housesit for you again. Highly recommended!
Jackie and Tony were fabulous house sitters. I came home to a lovely clean house with all the washing done and folded. My animals and my garden were both very well looked after. I would have them stay again, if they would like to be here. Thanks for a worry free sit, Jackie and Tony.
LYN (Tauranga North Island, Jan 2020 - 4 days)
Had Jackie come and stay at our home for the weekend, We came home to a tidy home and happy dogs. They were well taken care of. We are having them come sit again next January. Would recommend highly. Paula
PAULA (Owhata North Island, Oct 2019 - 2 days)
Jackie and Tony were great house sitters for my home and dog Millie. Everything was left clean and tidy and the linen washed. Millie was obviously well cared for and happy. Tony had kindly fixed a towel rack in the bathroom The communication was great and I would recommend this couple to anyone.Thank you.
CARRIE (Te Awamutu North Island, Oct 2019 - 4 days)
Jackie and Tony were amazing'dog whisperers'! They immediately bonded with Mac and took him on great adventures, lots of walks and taught him a few new tricks! So nice to go on holiday knowing that he was in great hands. Very warm and enthusiastic people who took great care of our house and we would highly recommend them to others.
PAM (Milford North Island, Sep 2019 - 2 weeks 4 days)
Thankyou Pam & Greg. We loved our time with Mac and being in your beautiful home was such a joy....we so appreciated being able to do this sit....and now we have another 'title'.....
Jackie and Tony are a super nice couple, easy to communicate with, and very respectful of owners wishes. Meeting with them before they confirmed the house-sit made us feel very confident in their ability to look after our home and pets as we would expect. On our return home, the house was clean, linen washed, and most importantly our cats and dog were obviously well cared for. Highly recommend Jackie and Tony.
HELEN (Whakatane , Aug 2019 - 1 week 3 days)
Thankyou Helen & Nick for your kind review.....we are so pleased you were happy with the sit.....the wine was awesome.......anytime again!!
No rating I cannot recommend Jackie and Tony highly enough. This was my first time using an internet site for a housesit so I was unsure of what to expect. Jackie was great to communicate with and explain the process. I found we had plenty of opportunity to get the necessary arrangements in place before we headed overseas. Tony and Jackie are both very kind, practical and optimistic people. Anyone would be lucky to have them take care of their home and pets. Thank you both!!!
JULIA (Seatoun North Island, Aug 2019 - 2 weeks 4 days)
Thankyou Julia. We so appreciate your kind review and hope to have the opportunity of house/pet sitting for you again. Kind regards, Tony & Jackie
I would really really recommend Jackie and Tony as house sitters, they are such a lovely friendly couple and hopefully they can house sit for me again.
LESLEY (Wallaceville North Island, Jul 2019 - 3 weeks)
Thankyou Lesley. Yes we look forward to our next house/pet sitting time for you. Best wishes T & J �
Jackie and Tony looked after our high energy 1 year old Labrador and home while we were on holiday for a week. We came home to a happy puppy and very tidy house ! We can't recommend them highly enough and so grateful we had them stay. Thanks so much Jackie & Tony.
BREA AND MATT (Havelock North North Island, Oct 2018 - 6 days)
No rating Jackie & Tony were awesome - they did a fantastic job looking after our furbaby and home while we were on our honeymoon. A super lovely couple, great communication - would defiantly use them again!
KIM (Welcome Bay North Island, Aug 2018 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating Jackie and Tony looked after our house for a week. We returned to a happy family of pets and everything left perfectly. They are a lovely couple and I couldn't recommend them highly enough! Thank you!
TESSA (Napier North Island, Jul 2018 - 1 week)
No rating Jackie was an excellent house sitter who looked after our 2 dogs like they were her own and even bought them treats :) She left the house very clean and tidy and we wouldn't have even known she was there - she also left milk, fresh fruit and biscuits for us which was very kind and sweet. Her communication was excellent and she was very reliable. We would highly recommend Jackie and look forward to the next time she house and pet sits for us.
CAROLINE (Papamoa Beach North Island, Jun 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
