Your home is our home.

50, Executive at Isagenix

52, Plant Manager @ Quality Bakers

We are a mature couple who met later in life, and just beginning our lives together. I'm Canadian and was travelling this beautiful country two years ago when I met Gary and I've never left. Home base is now Dunedin.

Before becoming on-line business owner and coach, I was a corporate accountant in Ottawa, Canada. Gary was a site manager for a manufacturing plant for the last 21 years in Dunedin, New Zealand. We now both work remotely/on-line which allows us to be home most of the day with your beloved pets and accommodate your pets needs even further.

We have both been pet owners, and now fill the void of losing a beloved pet and our love for travel by offering to pet sit in areas we would love explore.
It's a win-win!!

Please see references below. I also have some on the trustedhousesitters.com site.

We would be thrilled to meet you and your pets on FaceTime, virtual chat or in person to see whether we are a good fit for your home.

Kindest Regards,
Nancy & Gary

I highly recommend Nancy & Gary! They were super easy to communicate with, and we all got on like old friends straight away. They are a lovely couple, and took wonderful care of Buddy, who had a great time while we were away. Nancy & Gary understood Buddy's needs, and they sent us lots of photos of them all out having fun, which we really enjoyed receiving! We would not hesitate to have them housesit again for us and are trying to lock something in for Feb 2022!

Nancy and Gary took excellent care of my home and my fur babies. They were accommodating, flexible, and easy to deal with. I would be happy to have them house sit again.

Nancy and Gary took care of our home and pets (dog and cat) while we went away for a long weekend. They couldn't have been more fantastic. The house was clean on arrival home and we had lots of updates and photos of the animals having a great time. Very happy with them as housesitters and would recommend them in the future. Great to deal with and communicate with.

Highly recommend Nancy as a responsible and reliable house / pet sitter. House was left in immaculate condition and our lovely Labrador was well looked after. Would not hesitate in having Nancy back to house sit again.

We had Nancy look after our house and animals while we were away on holiday. We got lovely photos throughout our holiday of what they were up. We returned home to very happy furr babies they had been spoilt with visits to the beach etc. We would highly recommend Nancy to look after your home and animals. Thank you Nancy, Shadow I am sure misses you.
