Go-Getters - Ready To House and Pet Sit For You

We are a happily married couple of 40 years, fortunate to have been able to early retire 5 years ago.

House sitting for you could be a win-win for us both. You and your beloved pets will receive dedicated care and the attention you deserve. We are given the opportunity to fulfill our dream of traveling and getting to know communities by living like a local. House sits have allowed us to see so many places, get to know homeowners and their adored four legged companions.

We have done many sits over the last 5 years. Some for months and in other countries and not all thru this site. All have positive acknowledgements that we would be happy to share with you. We have not only made many furry friends, but have enjoyed the connection with the homeowners who entrusted us with their home and pets.

We are pet lovers and miss not having a pet to greet us when we come through the door.
We have had family fur babies that we have shared our home with. Elsa, our Lab, and Tigger, a mischievous calico, both entertained us for 14 years, romping and playing together.
Later, Rollo, a ten-pound Pomeranian mix, overjoyed us with his personality and loyalty for another 14 years.

We enjoy keeping active walking pets or doing chores. Hiking and bicycling are a passion. We are doer's, taking care of daily tasks with a smile. We are meticulous in keeping our home and garden spaces clean and tidy.

Jerry - As an IT professional, I handled urgent technology situations in a courtroom setting, while staying calm and flexible. You can leave your home and cherished pets in my care, knowing that if the need arises, I can deal with unplanned events in a rational manner.
I am a handy man. I have taken much pride in the homes Cheryl and I have had, remodeling kitchens, bathrooms, and performing maintenance projects in the home and yard. I am excited with this next chapter, travelling, meeting new people, enjoying life and helping others do the same by house sitting for you.

Cheryl- I have never had an inside job! For 30 years I had an estate gardening business, maintaining more than 100 acres of specimen trees, shrubs, roses, perennials, annuals, and water features. I listened and worked with my clients, building trust while taking care of many needs - preparing gardens for weddings, becoming the person the alarm company called in case of an emergency, doing whatever was asked of me or I saw that would make my client's lives more enjoyable. As a people pleaser, by house sitting I am able to slow down some while traveling, dote on your pets, and have a purpose as I have had caring for the homes and grounds of my clients.

Jerry and Cheryl were amazing housesitters! We got to know them as we had them to dinner and they spent the night with us. They were super friendly and very attentive as we showed them around our house and garden. They took great care of Tilly and sent us pictures of her while we were away. My garden and flowers looked fabulous upon our return. Our house was also super shiny and clean. We had great communication with them during our vacation. We wouldn't hesitate to ask them again!

No rating To: Cheryl and Jerry, and whom it may concern.... Sit Dates: 15 Jun 2019 to 31 Aug 2019 AMAZING is the first word that comes to mind to describe Cheryl and Jerry's care of our pets and home. Jerry and Cheryl house sat for us from June 15th through August 27th, 2019 in Lynden, Washington. We have two cats, each with their own distinctive personalities; Jerry and Cheryl made sure they were well cared for and loved, I say loved because our kitten continues to look for Jerry at bedtime. We ... MORE

No rating Jerry and Cheryl were the absolute best pet and house sitters we could ask for. We became acquainted over several months, when we found we needed to be flexible on both sides of our arrangement. This built a lot of trust between us and it allowed us to adjust our travel plans. Jerry and Cheryl are responsible, cheerful, organized, tidy and great communicators. Our two cats took to them and there were no issues adjusting to our absence. Our house was pristine when we returned, Cheryl had ... MORE

No rating Jerry and Cheryl stayed with our dog and cat for a week. I'm new to the website but with people like these two taking care of your home and pets, I'll definitely use the site again! They took our dog on field trips and even picked up our mail. Sent pictures and notes daily to assure us everything was good! My home was super clean and bed linen washed and made up! They are the best!! Thanks guys!
PAMELA ( California, Nov 2018 - 6 days)
No rating We could not have been more pleased with Cheryl and Jerry's attentions to our dogs and house while we were braving the cold in Maryland over Christmas. We returned to a spotless house and two very happy and contented Yorkies! Without a doubt we look forward to having them sit again sometime in the future, for we view them as new friends as well as sitters!
JOHN & BELLE ( California, Dec 2017 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating Jerry and Cheryl were fantastic! They kept in close contact with us during our absence when Georgie developed an infected eye, and they even made a vet appointment for us to keep on our return. They took very good care of our cats and home, and Cheryl even went above and beyond and left us with some of her expert plant advise to use on an ailing tree outside. We couldn't be happier with Jerry and Cheryl, and would welcome them back at anytime!
