Currently we do not have a pet, having lost our beloved Labradoodle, Miles. We know the names of most of the dogs walked in our neighborhood (if not always those of their humans :-).
So house-sitting checks two of our boxes, pet care and exploring new places.
Other interests include reading, movies, cooking (and eating!), estate sale-ing, and of course, traveling and exploring new and/or loved places.
We take the needs of pets seriously and the care of yours would come before anything that we might have on our travel to-do list -- just as it has with our own pets over the years. And when we stay in other's homes it is always our aim to leave things as neat, orderly and clean as we originally found them.

Elaine and Gary are our go-to house/pet sitters. They are personable, reliable, honest, and clean. They make everything easy and respect the wishes of the house/pet owners. Our 2 dogs love them and we can take a vacation without worrying. They are the best!

No rating Elaine and Gary were amazing. They took care of our home and our animals (2 large dogs and a cat) and our home was left so immaculate we thought they hired a cleaning person. They communicated with us during the entire 2 weeks and were like newfound friends, telling us what they liked about our neighborhood and asking us about our vacation. They are the first sitters we've used, as we were for them (we are no longer house sitting virgins). Highly recommended!!!
