Hi, we are a gentle natured family of three that would love the opportunity to take care of your pets and home in a respectful and loving way. We are trustworthy, reliable and sensitive to the individual needs of people and animals. None of us smoke. Our daughter (18) is home educated and is as gentle with animals as her parents. We would treat your home mindfully, with care and attention.

Why we love housesitting

We are a family that works and educates from home and we have found that housesitting provides us an opportunity to see this wonderful country as well as love and care for some amazing animals that we otherwise wouldn't have had the chance to. Our daughter is very hands on in the caretaking especially the belly rubs and playing catch. We have recently reclocated from the UK and are so happy to be back in the US.

What we bring to the assignment / relevant experience

We have now been house sitting on and off since August 2014. We have gained extensive experience working with all different breeds of dogs {from Mastiffs to border terriers and everything in between) and many cats, reptiles, chickens and even a small herd of sheep. We have worked with elderly, special needs dogs, as well as puppies, carrying out the owner's requirements for training. Of course, we also have a soft spot for guinea pigs and birds.

Personally, Jenn spent 2 years in secondary school working as an assistant in a vet surgery and as such has worked with all breeds of dogs and is sympathetic to different breed/medical needs. Also, she volunteered a few years in a science museum caring for tropical fish (including sharks), various reptiles and amphibians, as well as different bird species. She has worked as an environmental educator and studied wildlife biology... in short, she is very comfortable around all species of animals. Andrew has always had pets of various breeds and temperaments and on his daily long walks inevitably makes new friends as animals seem to gravitate towards him.

Our daughter as well is very gentle in her approach to animals and respects that every animal's needs are different, so she will always ask permission before petting, and allow the animal space where necessary... however she also loves to play ball and give belly scratches. She has a special affection for chickens. Overall, we would all work together to make certain your pet was well loved and attended to according to your wishes in your absence as well as give them the atmosphere and attention that comes with a family.

If you get an opportunity to have Jennifer and Andrew housesit for you, grab the chance. They are incredibly kind, responsive and easy to be with. They are true animal lovers who will offer such expert and attentive care, you will be afraid your critters might not want you to return. :) We have 2 dogs, 2 cats and a bearded dragon. Every one of them got excellent, loving care. One of our dogs requires some special care, and he was treated so sweetly and thoughtfully. They found special ... MORE

Excellent experience with Andrew & Jennifer. Super communicative, great with our beloved doggies, highly recommend.
 
ROSE ( California, Dec 2023 - 4 nights)
They were great. They arrived punctually, were excellent communicators, sending updates and photos almost every day we were gone. Our house was well cared-for and clean when we returned. They obviously loved our puppy and spent lots of time with him. Based on the photos we worried he would be more upset to see them go than happy to have us back.
 
ROBERT ( California, Dec 2023 - 1 week)
Jenn, Andrew and Analis are thoroughly delightful and dedicated house and pet sitters. Our cats' nervous dispositions made the pet sitting part probably frustrating for them because they barely saw our cats. In spite of their great efforts Gracie and Wills remained shy. This was our first house sitting experience and we've learned that our cats truly can't warm to strangers. This was a shame for all concerned! In spite of this, Jenn kept me frequently informed and reassured about the well ... MORE
 
CLAIRE (Missoula Montana, Oct 2023 - 1 month 1 week)
Jennifer, Andrew, and Annalise were exceptional house sitters. My dog, Rosie fell in love, and I cannot think them enough for the attention they paid her. And they took great care of my home as well, treating it as their own. If you were lucky enough to have them sit for you, you are very lucky.!
 
MARIALYCE (Rockford Michigan, Sep 2023 - 4 weeks)
I feel like I got so lucky. This family is so sweet and anyone who gets to have them will be lucky too. They are genuine and quite charming. My house and babies (dog, two horses and a cat) are all content since I’ve come home. This is my first time doing this and am so grateful that our stars lined up. I enjoyed their company the first visit to get the lay of the land that I have invited them back for an anytime stay. Really, I think you would be lucky to have them in your home.~ Krystal Collier
 
KRYSTAL ( Georgia, Aug 2023 - 7 days)
We loved everything about this sit, especially meeting you!
Jennifer, Andrew, and Lili were fantastic housesitters. They took excellent care of our cat and home and we’re easy to communicate with. We’d welcome them back any time.
 
MARGARET ( North Carolina, Jun 2023 - 4 days)
What amazing house sitters! Andrew Jenn and their daughter Analis took amazing care of our cats and Rabbits and our home. Such a kind generous family, even buying treats for the pets and clearing up after our naughty cats. They kept us informed with photos to show how happy our pets were with them. I was delighted that they could sit for us a second time. I Would highly recommend them.
 
HELEN (Cheltenham England, Aug 2022 - 1 week 1 day - 1 of 2 endorsements from this owner ) From House Sitters UK
A totally delightful family, if you have read previous reviews of these guys then you will know that they are pretty much unbeatable in terms of how well and happy you will find your pets when you get home. Our cat tried to follow them to the car when they left, and the baby Guinea pigs were noticeably calm and well handled as well as cleaned out.. Not only that, they left the house cleaner than they found it and dinner in the fridge for when we got home. I very much hope they will come back!
 
SHELLEY (Sheffield England, Aug 2022 - 6 days) From House Sitters UK
Never leaving our girls before, we were a little nervous about going abroad for a holiday, without them. We needn't have worried! From the moment we received their first communication, Andrew and Jen were brilliant; and certainly put our minds at rest. When we finally met them, we immediately felt at ease. They are a lovely family, who genuinely love animals. Analis, was superb with the rabbits and our girls were genuinely loved and given lots of cuddles which is what they are used to. The ... MORE
 
GARY AND ALISON (Kirkby Lonsdale England, Jul 2022 - 1 week 1 day) From House Sitters UK
Andrew and Jennifer were amazing sitters, They are clearly lovely people who really care. They took good care of the house and were really respectful, but more importantly they took great care of our lovely dog. They asked all the right questions, they watered the plants without us asking :) Communication was also brilliant, the photos of Nia our dog were so nice to receive. A massive thanks to you, you helped us really enjoy our holiday,
 
KATHERINE (Warlingham England, Jul 2022 - 4 days) From House Sitters UK
My worry is that if I really tell you how good these people are as house-sitters then everyone will want them and they won't be available for us next time! They couldn't do enough to help. Went every extra mile to see the animals and the house were ok. Took our dog back and forth to the vet when she was sick. Took in a chicken or two when worried for their health. Sent me regular updates, photos and videos of the animals for reassurance and fun. Checked in with any queries. So kind, so ... MORE
 
ANDY (Bovey Tracey England, May 2022 - 4 weeks) From House Sitters UK
Jennifer and Andrew and their daughter are lovely people who really cared about the pets. Bumble had a great time and was sad to see them go! They communicated well and left the house tidy and clean. They were a pleasure to meet and we had no reservations about leaving things in their hands.
 
HUGH (Bideford England, May 2022 - 1 week 1 day) From House Sitters UK
This was the first time we had used house sitters and I was a little nervous but from our initial conversation I knew that Jenn and Andrew would be great, and they were. Jenn sent me regular updates on how the pets were getting on, including photos and videos. They clearly cared about them very much and the pets were relaxed and happy. They were excellent communicators, and let us when there was a possible leak in the bathroom and dealt with this. Andrew, Jenn and their daughter Analis are ... MORE
 
LOUISE (Brighton England, Apr 2022 - 2 weeks 2 days) From House Sitters UK
Andrew, Jen and Analis were just the best house sitters. They came to Norfolk to look after Minkie, my gentle shy Whippet. Mike clearly adored them and is missing them as they looked after her so well. I would love for them to house sit again. Jen kept me updated with pictures and messages which was reassuring.I came home to a clean tidy house and washing on the line which she had kindly washed. Would recommend Andrew and Jen.
 
SUSIE (Thornage , Mar 2022 - 6 days) From House Sitters UK
Andrew, Jenn and Analise were great Housesitters in every way. They obviously cared well for Colin, our Jack Russell, and the house was immaculate. Jenn communicated well with us while we were abroad which gave us complete peace of mind. I hope they will come again and we would definitely recommend them.
 
ROBERT (LAMPETER Wales, Sep 2019 - 10 days) From House Sitters UK
Jen, Andrew and family were really great housesitters. They gave us total peace of mind whilst we were away for nearly 3 months particular,y when our old labrador was ill. It was a great relief to know that they were there to take her to the vets and care for her. They also got on famously with our new rescued cat probably better than us! Thank you for being here and doing such a great job.
 
HILARY (ryde England, Feb 2019 - 2 months) From House Sitters UK
No rating Andrew, Jenn & their lovely children Chris & Analise were simply THE BEST! I knew from the moment I communicated with them before the sit, that they would be perfect for our dogs and their varying needs. They were happy to continue our training regime for our reactive dog, to cope with our elderly dog and all her medications and wobbles, and to give all three of them all the love they can handle. I don't think the dogs wanted us to come back - they loved having the family there so much! ... MORE
VICTORIA (Guildford England, Nov 2018 - 1 week 4 days) From House Sitters UK
No rating Andrew, Jenn and family have just looked after our home and pets and we couldn't have asked for more. We got lovely updates whilst away, came back to a clean and tidy house, but most importantly two very happy pets who had been so very well looked after. There was even a batch of homemade cookies to welcome us after a long journey home. We highly recommend Andrew and Jenn and should we need house sitters again in the future we'd be delighted if they could house sit for us again. Thank ... MORE
ANNA (Bromley England, Oct 2018 - 1 week 4 days) From House Sitters UK
No rating This was the first time we'd used housesitters and were a bit nervous. We needn't have been; Jennifer, Andrew and their children are a lovely family who took really good care of our house and left it very clean and tidy. We highly recommend them as housesitters and would be delighted if they could look after the house again some time
SIAN (Chesham England, Sep 2018 - 1 week 3 days) From House Sitters UK
No rating Jenn, Andrew and their two lovely children looked after our dog and home wonderfully while we had a two week holiday. They communicated well before and during the time we were away, sending us photos and updates regularly. We arrived back to find a happy and relaxed dog who clearly enjoyed playing with the children, and a home that was clean and tidy. Jenn had kindly laundered all the bed linen and towels by the time we had returned (even though we returned relatively early in the morning). ... MORE
ZUBIN AND HAZEL (Horsham England, Sep 2018 - 2 weeks) From House Sitters UK
No rating From the moment we first met Andrew and Jenn we knew our house and beloved pets would be in safe, loving hands while we were away.Such kind and gentle people it was such a pleasure to meet them. They kept us up to date with communication about how things were going which was much appreciated and the house was beautifully clean and tidy when we came home. Jenn even made us a welcome home cake which was wonderful! The dogs were clearly comfortable and spoiled while we were away and it was so ... MORE
GRAEME AND ALI (Bristol England, Aug 2018 - 1 week) From House Sitters UK
No rating What a lovely family to have to stay In our home. They kindly sent us updates and photos which were so lovely to receive. They looked after our place so well and our pets with love and affection. We would be delighted to have them stay again.
HELEN (Cheltenham England, Aug 2018 - 1 week - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner ) From House Sitters UK
No rating To have the peace of mind and reassurance that our house and pets were in the best of hands - we could not have asked for more from Jenn, Andrew and their family. Not only did we get very clear understanding of who they were and how they liked to house sit before we left - but during our stay away - we received some wonderful updates to let us know all was good at home. Their genuine love of the pets made us even more confident we had made the right choice. We thank them again and would highly ... MORE
MARTIN (Brighton , Jul 2018) From House Sitters UK
No rating Andrew, Jenn and the children have been amazing. They looked after the house and animals so well. We came back to a clean house and happy and calm dogs who have obviously enjoyed lots of attention and affection in our absence. We felt very comfortable leaving the dogs and house in their care for a week and would definitely have them back to help us out in the future if they were ever free.
NICOLA (Checkendon England, Jun 2018 - 1 week 1 day) From House Sitters UK
No rating Jenifer and Andrew, together with their lovely children Chris and Analis, house sat for us looking after out two boxers, cat and gold fish. They are the perfect pet and house sitters, the love and care they gave to our home and especially the pets was perfect. They provided excellent communications, were totally reliable in every way. We came home to a happy house and pets that were totally relaxed. We can recommend them to anyone considering them as sitters and hope that they will be ... MORE
