Rand + Dayl

29, Field Instructor with the Rocky Mountain Field Institute

31, Field Instructor with the Rocky Mountain Field Institute

We spent a couple years abroad on Working Holiday Visas house and pet sitting in New Zealand and Australia. Back home in the states, we have been house sitting in New Mexico and Colorado using TrustedHouseSitters.com
We are non-smokers, vegans, and we love all animals--especially dogs! We have enjoyed house/pet sitting over 30 times throughout New Zealand and Australia with all sorts of animals. Our record is looking after 34 animals in one sit!

We met in Austin, Texas, USA in 2016 during a green building volunteer program where we constructed tiny houses for the homeless population and renovated homes for low-income residents in the city. We both have a lot of hiking trail building and hiking trail maintenance work experience, having worked with conservation corps programs in the past.
DAYL has a Bachelor's degree in Sustainable Agriculture & Natural Building while RAND has a dual-major Bachelor's degree in Sociology & Psychology. DAYL is originally from the greater Chicago-land area and RAND is from Reno, Nevada.

We love to live an active life full of the outdoors, recreation, and new experiences. We live in a quiet but adventuresome way, always working to balance a healthy and mindful lifestyle with fun and spontaneity. We are self-starters who require little supervision and don't mind being left to ourselves. We are a couple of curious and respectful people who love to work and travel together.

*Also, we both have valid police background checks and we have our own car that we will be traveling in, so transportation is not an issue.

We look forward to meeting you!

Dayl & Rand looked after our home and our dog Nase while we went overseas. We had to change our travel plans due to the Covid-19 travel restrictions being put in place. Dayl & Rand were extremely accommodating during this stressful and unusual situation. Dayl & Rand put our dog Nase before their own travel plans, staying with Nase for as long as they could. Dayl & Rand were amazing with Nase he had some new favourite balls and he clearly missed them once they were gone. We returned to ... MORE

Dayl & Rand took great care of our home and pets! House was left spotless and was nice to arrive home to freshly made bed and happy dogs / chooks! Would happily recommend this lovely couple.
 
MEL (RAILWAY ESTATE QLD, Feb 2020 - 1 week 2 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Dayl and Rand came and cared for our four dogs for three weeks. We were really appreciative of their level of communication with us while we were away...as heavy rains had changed quite a few plans. They were completely adaptable and took our dogs for frequent drives and outings. In fact when we arrived home, we suspected that the dogs were not that fussed to see us, and were looking for Dayl and Rand. They had been so well cared for. Our home was left beautifully clean and as we had left ... MORE
 
ROZ (Middle Ridge QLD, Jan 2020 - Three Weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Dayl and Rand did a fabulous job keeping my house and pets happy and safe - especially considering it was very last minute and we only had 2 hours to orientate them! Thank you to you both and enjoy your future travels.
 
KATE (Croppa Creek NSW, Jan 2020 - 1 week 2 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Dayl & Rand were great House Sitters for us. They looked after our house well and we came home to flourishing plants and strawberries. Lexie was super relaxed when we returned that confirmed to us that she was in safe hands with Dayl & Rand. Communication was just right throughout the sit and the whole family loved receiving videos of Lexie whilst we were away. Thank you so much for a successful house sit Dayl & Rand, oh and the bottle of red wine you left for us. Thank you.
 
ASHLEIGH (Tarneit Melbourne VIC, Dec 2019 - 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Dayl and Rand went above and beyond while house and dog sitting for us. We came home to a house that was cleaner than when we left and our plants were healthier and even bearing fruit. Sadly we couldnt convince them to stay with us longer! We felt so lucky and relaxed having them looking after our home and our beloved Bua. If only they would stay to live in Melbourne!!
 
ANA (Windsor VIC, Nov 2019 - 3.5 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Dayl and Rand were absolutely fabulous. They looked after my greyhound Jenny only for a couple of days but they did an awesome job. House was left clean, Jenny was well looked after, they were great to communicate with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone!
 
LAUREN (Chelsea VIC, Oct 2019) From Aussie House Sitters

RICK (Berwick VIC, Oct 2019 - 4 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Dayl & Rand looked after Harvey for 2 weeks whilst I jetted off to India. Harvey is 14 & is much happier at home than anywhere else. They walked him twice a day, he doesnt need long, & looked after him wonderfully well. The house was left spotless & communication between us was easy. I would highly recommend them for future sits. All the best to you both!!!
 
TRISH (Mordialloc VIC, Oct 2019 - 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Dale & Rand were wonderful housesitters.. They looked after Bonnie really well. She would have loved all the running and going to the park. They sent us weekly updates and photos of Bonnie. It gave us such piece of mind to know she was in safe hands. Thank you for taking such great care with our home and Bonnie it is very much appreciated.

MARION (Myponga SA, Aug 2019 - 4 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
Dayl & Rand were fantastic with my pets. They cared for farm animals and a needy dog. I was very confident in their ability to look after everything and they didn't disappoint. They are reliable, trustworthy, clean and a polite couple. We would have them back in a flash so highly recommend them to house and pet sit. Thanks for doing such a great pet sit for me.

What a lovely couple, we were 100% satisfied with their commitment to our family of pets and our home on the two occasions they house sat. Trustworthy, genuine and caring would not hesitate to recommend them at all. Enjoy the rest of your time traveling guys, take care x
 
JO (Enner Glynn South Island, Feb 2019 - 4 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
Dayl and Rand were amazing sitters, we would strongly recommend them to anyone. They are a kind and caring couple who communicated with us well during the sit, even when I was a bit needy about the pets in the beginning. We knew the animals were in good hands and well cared for. We came home to a spotlessly clean house, they even changed and washing the linen on the bed! They went far beyond what we expected. We couldn't have asked for anything more, thank you so much. If you need ... MORE
 
NATALIE (Newlands North Island, Dec 2018 - 1 week 3 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
Dayl and Rand were wonderful. They looked after my dog and home for a week and I came back to a lovely clean, tidy home and a content, happy dog. The house was just as I'd left it and Lexi didn't seem phased that I'd been gone at all so she must have received lots of love and attention. Thank you both and I hope you enjoy the rest of your travels around NZ.
 
ANDREA (Alicetown North Island, Dec 2018 - 1 week) From Kiwi House Sitters

SAMANTHA (Gate Pa North Island, Nov 2018 - 2 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
No rating Dayl and Rand are a lovely young couple who are very responsible and independent. Our dogs were well looked after by them and we arrived home to find our house very clean and tidy. I highly recommend them as dogsitters and wish them well in their travels round New Zealand.
