Hello! Dave and I are excited to learn about how your home works and to meet the furry/feathery members of your family. My hubby and I are looking for new adventures far and wide. We are very good with animals and have been homeowners for 30 years. We understand the importance of respecting your property and keeping you up to date on the health and happiness of your beloved pets. We are so happy to share this exciting new adventure with you! We do not smoke or do drugs. We have found it often works for us to come to your home a couple of days in advance to learn your routines. We are also always willing to commit to extra days should your flight be delayed. We want to make it easy on you and maintain a pleasant, loving environment for your pets.

Why we want to house sit

House sitting is a great way to engage with real communities in a more personal way. It is so nice to return to a real home after sight-seeing, to be greeted by yips and yaps and wagging tails, to sit around the kitchen table with fresh bread and fruit, to greet the neighbor as she waves from her window. We prefer "settling in" to vacationing, I guess! And having pets around is all the more enjoyable. I have three rescue dogs of my own. We wish they could travel with us but it is impossible -- they stay with our son when we travel. But animals bring joy to our every waking moment. Having "pets on loan" to share our travel experience makes it even more memorable. It is our honor to learn their personalities, give them the love and attention they deserve, keep them close, well-exercised and on the schedules your family has set for them. We are comfortable giving medications (please see our review from T. Barrett who lives in Panama-- we cared for her senior kitty with asthma). We appreciate the opportunity you have given us to care for the most important things in your life -- your home and the animals you love. Our first priority is to give you peace of mind while you enjoy a long-awaited vacation or work away from home.

What we bring to the assignment / relevant experience

We adore animals, first and foremost. Extensive foreign and domestic travel--we are comfortable most anywhere! Maturity. Long-time pet owners (dogs and cats) and 30-year homeowner. Dave is a serious gardener. We clean and adjust chemicals in our own FL pool. If your home is for sale, we can be counted on to keep it in "show-worthy" condition, with flowers on the counter and cookies on the counter.

No rating Lisa and Dave were amazing with our pets. We felt completely comfortable leaving our babies in their care. Our Great Dane is super sensitive and has a hard time with new people, but they went the extra steps to make you feel safe with them. When we returned, we were shocked at how comfortable our dogs were with Lisa and Dave. Really kind, thoughtful people. We hope they will want stay here again.

No rating This was our first time to use House Sitters America, and we are thrilled we got Lisa and David to look after everything while we were gone for two weeks. They were perfect--friendly, responsible, communicative and so good to our pets (one dog, two cats) and our house. David gave us a ride to and from the airport, the house looked better than we left it (and it was in pretty good shape), but most important, they took wonderful care of the critters, who all appeared to fall in love with them. ...

No rating We had a wonderful experience with Lisa and Dave as our house-sitters. They took the time to know our routine and got to know the cats before we left town. They kept us posted while we were gone, and even sent pictures of our kitties now and then. They took excellent care of the cats, our house and our yard. The house was in outstanding condition when we returned, and the cats were well cared for. I would love to have them house-sit for us again any time! It's been a pleasure getting to know ... MORE

No rating Lisa and David loved and cared for my two large dogs for 2 weeks, exercising them well, even taking them swimming. They were very comfortable with my dogs sitting next to them on the couch and lying really close at nap time. They took beautiful care of my home and I returned to happy pets, fresh sheets and towels! I always got the feeling they really liked being here and I loved having them.
