Jolly House Minders

Allow us to introduce ourselves, my name is Erica and my partner is Jolly Joe. We are currently located in central Oregon but are more than willing to travel.

In between dog walks/cat cuddles, Joe fills his days studying computer programming in order to pursue a career in the technology field and I work from home as an Independent Contractor for a virtual contact temp agency.

One word that comes to mind when asked why we want to house sit is exploration! We are adventures at heart. We love to travel - seeing and doing new things is what fulfills us. House-sitting gives us the ability to check out all kinds of different places (some we haven't even heard of before) and for longer amounts of time.

Joe and I are life partners, pursuing this journey together as a team. A favorite thing to do in our spare time is Geocaching! Besides the fact that it is a free activity, it takes us to new and interesting places that we probably would not discover on our own. We love opening up the Geocache App to see if there are any "treasures" to find nearby. We've geocached across the United States and were so stoked to find a cache while traveling in Switzerland earlier this year!

Our pet-sitting experience includes indoor/outdoor short hair and Maine Coon cats as well as medium-large size dogs (Brittany Spaniel, Labrador Retriever, Rottweiler, Doberman Pinscher mix and Greater Swiss Mountain breeds). In addition, we've loved and cared for previous furry family members of the following breeds: Golden Retriever, Chow Chow, Chihuahua and Samoyed.

We can't wait to meet you and your pets and form new (fur) friendships!

Erica and Joseph are stellar house and pet sitters! They took exceptional care of my high-energy Dobi mix, Zuri - taking her each day on an off-leash walk at nearby trails and giving her a lot of love and attention. They updated me regularly with photos that made clear Zuri was having a wonderful time and perfectly content despite my absence. I came home to a happy Zuri and a super clean house. I highly recommend Erica and Joseph!

My husband and I were so thrilled to have Joe and Erica stay with our fur babies. They took such good care of both our home and our pets. We even had them stay twice in the last few months. We would highly recommend them. The cats loved them and they sent us photos to keep in touch. We were fortunate to have connected with them. Linda

Erica and Joe were excellent housesitters and caregivers to my pups. They were very communicative and kind. My pups just loved them! I was able to enjoy my time away knowing that they were in very good hands. I definitely recommend them!
JOE ( California, Dec 2022 - 2 weeks 3 days)
Thank you Joe and Erica for taking such wonderful care of my home and furry family. They enjoyed your company so much, it was evident they were all happy and bonded with you when I returned. You took such care to stay in touch, it was lovely to return to a clean and shiny home. So glad you enjoyed it here, even in the rainy times. I hope you are able to return, we would all love to see you here again. Erica, your yarn gifts were so special and unique. Thank-you. All our best to your next ... MORE

Joe and Erica took exceptionally good care of our lab and won her over completely. They also too great care of our house. We would have them back anytime they are willing to come!

Erica and Joe were most excellent House Sitters. My dog (7 yr old Rottweiler) Rosie probably wanted to go home with them when I returned, they loved her so much. They gave her extraordinary care ,tended to my home and yard and are kind, and gentle people. I can't say enough good about them!
