We are a nonsmoking, active retired couple from mid Michigan who love animals and love to travel. Cows, chickens, ducks, horses, dogs and cats have been part of our lives for 50 years. At this time we have two dogs. If possible, we would like to bring them. Of course we can stay with your dog family (without our dogs) as our daughter helps us out with that. I (Jan) am also available for sitting by myself if needed. I did have Covid but I have had all my shots. Mike did not get Covid but has had all his shots.
We are very neat and honest and would care for your home, animals, garden as you would. We also do lawn mowing, gardening and other odd jobs you might need.. As we are a very healthy and physically active couple our goal is to make your critters happy and relaxed in your absence and we would love your critters unconditionally.
It would be a pleasure to meet you and your 4 legged family.

Jan was awesome. She was able to show up the day before on a moments notice due to our ticket change. She took excellent care of our dogs, chickens, and ducks. The house was spotless, and she was a good communicator. I definitely recommend her as a sitter.

Hi Ben and Perry, I really enjoyed staying in your home and caring for Peco and Shadow. They were the sweetest, most attentive dogs, in the house or out for walks. They were my friends and I will always remember them. I sure got a kick out of the 6 ducks checking out the yard in single file ... MORE
No rating Jan was a wonderful house/pet sitter. My girls were as peaceful and happy when I came home as if I'd never left. My house was spotless, too! She's a great communicator and I would recommend her to any other potential home owner looking for the ideal sitter.

No rating Jan was amazing! I could tell she was very enthusiastic about spending time with Bella, which is great, and I'm happy that she saw staying at my place as a mini-vacation :) I felt very at ease when I was away, knowing that Bella was being loved and well taken care of in my absence, as well as the home! Jan is a very thoughtful and kind person, even leaving me some yummy organic tomatoes from her own garden and some delicious smelling laundry detergent! I arrived home to a happy kitty and ... MORE

No rating Jan was the most wonderful house sitter. She was relaxed and dependable and left my place in the best shape. It was fun to check in with her to see how things were going as she was always upbeat and interested in enjoying her time. When I returned she had left me a number of homemade treats and some goodies from the local farmer's market. She enjoyed my cat's company and overall took exceptional care of my home - so appreciated!!
