Trustworthy Twosome

54, editor

53, tech guy for two magazines

We are Lillian and Tim, empty nesters in our mid-50s, and we love exploring new places and cuddling dogs. Tim (a former magazine editor and current tech guy) and I (an academic editor) both work from home, and we finally figured out that "home" can be anywhere. If we house-sit for you we all benefit -- we get to travel more, and you get the peace of mind of knowing that your home and pets are in good hands.

We enjoy walking and hiking, so your outdoors-loving pups (and adventuresome cats!) will get plenty of sunshine and fresh air with us. We owned a home for 25 years and so are well versed in the myriad tasks required to keep a house running smoothly.

In addition to the dogs and cats we've adopted over the past 35 years, we have raised four Seeing Eye puppies and fostered for a pit bull rescue, and we have experience with leash reactive dogs.

We're just starting out on this adventure, and we'd love to chat with you about how your needs mesh with ours.

When we arrived home, the ... MORE

Tim and Lillian exceeded our expectations. They took great care of our home and our dogs loved them. Anyone who gets these two to house or pet sit would be fortunate to have them. We sure would have them back.

Lillian and Tim were absolutely fantastic sitters. They took amazing care of my three (!) giant dogs, treating them like their own, even going above and beyond when the dogs woke them up at 2:30 in the morning. They sent me lovely pictures and updates, and it was very clear that my dogs were happy and being loved on. The house was in perfect condition when we returned. Lillian and Tim also made sure that I returned from my international travels on time before departing the home, which was ... MORE

Lillian and Tim took amazing care of my four pets and my home. They were extremely flexible and accommodating. Lillian provided frequent updates on the pets while we were gone and detailed information for our return. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of pet/house sitting.
