62, Retired customer service

62, Retired Navy & retired security executive

Dan was raised on a farm, learning responsibility and animal care (from chickens to horses and cattle) as a small child. This is where his love of animals began. We have had dogs, cats, birds and fish. Dan has baled hay, worked on barns and has worked on almost all problems associated with a home. He is a skilled electrician. Brenda is retired from the phone company where she worked in customer service, not always an easy job but one she did with a smile. She has spent the last 10 years in the medical field. We have raised six children, four boys and two girls. We have enjoyed traveling through the years, hiking, riding bicycles and snow skiing. As a retired Navy Chief, Dan has a love for the water as does Brenda. After retiring from the Navy, Dan was an executive in the field of security. He knows how to keep your home safe. We have never smoked and rarely drink. We are open to house and or pet sitting most anywhere in the world. We are financially able to travel without sitting but have found we miss the comfort of being in a home and animals to love and take care of. Homeowners, we know how to treat your home just like it was our own. As animal lovers and care givers, we understand the rewards of loving and taking care of your pets. In the past year we have taken care of numerous dogs and cats, along with ponies, horses, chickens, cows, pigs, fish and birds. We have enjoyed every moment of our house/pet sitting journey. We have many references from homeowners available along with a police check. Thank you for taking the time to looking at our profile.

No rating Me (Karoo) and my doggy and kitty sisters LOVE Brenda and Dan!! They took us dogs on walks to the beach and to the woods every day. They sent pictures to Mommy (she loves that!) and they let the kitties sleep with them every night. We hope they will come back again. We send them lots of puppy and kitty hugs and licks. If you are super lucky you will have them take care of you!
STACY ( Washington, Jun 2018 - 4 weeks)
No rating I can't say enough good about Dan and Brenda. They took superb care of our farm and animals (2 dogs and 5 horses). Dan is a talented handyman that can fix or do most anything required and Brenda kept our home so clean and cared for. They are pleasant, kind, respectful of, and dedicated to caring for the homes and possessions they are living in. Highest recommendations for them! We consider them our friends now and our dogs were depressed when they left!

No rating What a great experience! We'd never had house-sitters before, and at first, I was a little weirded-out... these people are going to come live in our house and take care of our dogs... for free? What's the catch? Well, there isn't one! Brenda and Dan couldn't have been sweeter or more responsible. They're obviously experienced pet parents and homeowners and they put me at ease immediately. I've never had a more worry-free vacation. We came home to a clean house, a neat yard and two ... MORE

No rating Both Dan and Brenda took great care of my pets and kept our home neat and clean. They went way beyond expectations even driving us to the cruise pier a three hour drive and picking us back up on return. What a pleasure for us, both were honest, responsible, and had great personalities.
CONNIE (Florida, Jan 2016 - 2 weeks)
No rating Once again Brenda and Dan came to my rescue to care for my cat Sweetie from Sep 25, 2017- Nov 9 and again Nov 30-Dec 7. Sweetie needs meds and ear drops twice daily and sub dermal fluids twice a week which was no problem for Brenda and Dan to administer. The love and care that they gave to Sweetie is beyond expectation. Brenda and Dan have cared for my pets many times in last few years and they have become a part of my family. I can travel anywhere without having concerns about my pets or home ... MORE
