Hello! I live in Ohio, own my home. Divorced for 25 years. Worked for Dept of Defense for 33 years with Secret clearance so please don't be hesitant about leaving me to take care of your home and/or pets. Retired now. Responsible and reliable. Don't currently have any pets of my own as I have been travelling for last three years. During my past I have owned cats, dogs and horses, sheep and one pig (Ray), we ate Ray :-) Now trying to travel a bit smarter by being a home and pet sitter, this may also allow me to visit a location long enough to evaluate as my future home or to explore a new location. I travel all over the U.S. so I may already be in an area near you and if you are in a desirable area I will come your way :-) . I like to arrive a day ahead so that we can go over instructions and questions, smile. Let's do this! Reference upon request and please read endorsements.
Should we have a conversation about a sit, please have the courtesy to notify all applicants once a selection is made. I find this to be the most frustrating thing about this site, you think you are still being considered and a selection has been made and no one else told. I saw one person who reposted and changed looking for sitter to we have made a selection and it was totally great for all concerned. Thanks for listening :-)
Toni was a wonderful house and dog sitter. She took super care of our girls while we were overseas, and kept in regular communication with us sending pics and updates. She left the house clean and tidy. We would highly recommend her!

Toni is the best! I have made a friend for life! She was excellent with my dogs, cats, fish,horses and my Exotic Degus. This was my first house sitter and I was a little hesitant but Toni was very experienced and professional, she fit right in and took control, I was very thrilled to come home to my home and animals that were happy and cared for, they didn't even miss me!LOL That is great animal care! I was also impressed at how much research she did on the care of my Chilean Degus before ... MOREToni is the best! I have made a friend for life!

I am so thankful to Toni, I highly recommend her anywhere she goes, she is trustworthy, honest, clean, knowledgable and fun to be around.

Toni was fabulous with my (sometimes challenging) terrier. Toni took her to the dog park several times, which I had said she didn't have to do. Toni cleaned my house before I came home, which I appreciated, as I had traveled for 33 hours and was exhausted. She even watered some plants that I had just planted. They are thriving. I would love to have her sit again next year when I'm on vacation.

Toni has done two house/cat sits for us. She's reliable and tentative. She sent me updates on how our cat was doing and when we came home, the house was tidy. I would definitely use her again for a future house sit!
