Sitters for your wonderful pets!

74, Retired: Active!!

75, Retired: Active!!

We are active seniors with a wealth of life experience, as well as being long term home owners and handling the responsibilities that go along. We have had pets of our own over many years. Because we travel fairly often, we do not currently have animals, but do parent my daughter's two dogs when they are gone, and have fed the hamsters belonging to the grandchildren. We have had a pool and gardens to upkeep, and are non smokers.

We have enjoyed caring for many pets and house sitting while exploring the new areas. It's always a joy to see a new pet become a delightful companion. We like the slower pace of housesitting while still enjoying new people and animals. House sitting has made that a fun opportunity. We have been to many towns both domestic and outside the US, perhaps we need to see YOUR town!!

As for more details, Clifford and I both worked many years. We owned an employment agency which I ran, and he worked in state and local government in corrections administration. We both have passed various security and background checks, drug screens, and employment verification. After retiring, we moved into a smaller house without a pool or pets so we could travel.

Before this crazy quarantine, we pet sat with a dog and a fluffy cat in an off-the-grid home in upstate New York. We kept two shy kitties near Washington, DC. During another sit, we had three energetic dogs, from 10 pounds to 80 pounds! For another sit, we enjoyed two dogs and two cats in downtown Manhattan--and walked the dogs to the East River every day! Great fun! We're looking to expand our experiences with more house sitting adventures in the US.

Our schedule is pretty flexible and we'd love to chat about your needs for someone to care for your pets and home!

No rating Brenda and Clifford took outstanding care of my pets, Reggie and Desi, and my home. Everything was clean and tidy, and it was obvious that the animals had been happy with them. We had a nice evening together before we left, helping them to know the house, the pets, and the area. I only wish there had been more time to get to know them...it was a fun evening. I hope our paths cross again sometime...if they want to come back, I would have them in a minute.

No rating I can not thank Brenda and Clifford enough! They stayed in our home and watched over our three dogs for a full week, and left our home better than they found it. Communication was perfect, with Brenda sending updates and photos of our dogs getting all of the love and attention they crave. They responded rapidly if I needed to send a text, and are all-around delightful people to be around. We arrived home to replenished perishables, which we did not expect, and clean sheets on the bed and a full ... MORE

No rating Brenda and Clifford did a wonderful job of taking care of our two dogs and two cats while we were away. All the pets received plenty of love and attention. One of our cats receives medication twice daily. It can be a tedious thing but Brenda and Clifford administered it perfectly every time. They also took great care of our apartment and let the place exactly how they found it. Maybe even a little nicer.

No rating Brenda and Clifford did a wonderful job caring for our house and two cats. They were a pleasure to work with from the moment we connected and we shared a nice dinner getting to know one another better the night before we left for vacation. We had no worries leaving our home and pets in their capable hands and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a house sitter.

No rating Clifford and Brenda were wonderful house and pet sitters. We had the opportunity to share a meal the evening before we left and it was great getting to know them and hearing about their life experiences. They communicated well before, during and after their stay. They sent us a copy of their confirmation for their travel so we could rest assured they were committed. They followed our instructions to a tee and took perfect care of our family pets and home. I would have them back in a heartbeat. ... MORE
