About Louise

My Husband of 24 years & I travel the world regularly (I am a Travel concierge & International Tour guide). While traveling, & while I’m/we’re at home in Australia, I/we Housesit & take care of beloved 'fur kids'. I have been around animals my whole life as I grew up on Chicken & Turkey farms (free range laying birds). We always had 3-4 dogs (plus puppies - we used to send our dogs to sire with another pure breed Border Collie), cats, birds, a kangaroo (we saved her & raised her after her mother was hit by a truck - she, like all of our animals, passed from old age), rabbits, tree frogs (I used to catch them as tadpoles, then after they grew into frogs, release them), turtles, cows, sheep, horses & goats. I love animals & miss them since moving to the Inner West of Sydney. My Husband has had 2 dogs in his life & he desperately wants a Labrador, however, it is unfair to have a dog this size in our small home. Our love for animals, & the fact that we travel a lot & unfortunately do not have children, are the reasons we House & Pet sit all over the world. We have a Police check & numerous references. We are professional Housesitters & are listed on various platforms. When Housesitting, we bring our own food & drinks, or if need be, we will replace anything that we finish. We respect & keep our own home clean & tidy. We welcome a clean & tidy home to take care of that we will respect the same way as our own. The photo's that I have uploaded are just a couple of the very loved fur babies that I/we have taken care of. * 1 month Housesit in Pellegrue, France with Byron & Poppy the Bernese, & Bijou the Husky x. * 2 week Housesit in Pessan, France with 21yo Fragrance (Horse in the photo's + photo with the Trainer), another Horse & 2 dogs. * 3 week Housesit (Every January) in Emu Plains with Cleopatra & Ceasar that are Rotwheeler x Mastiff x Belgium Sheppard x Labrador, Priscilla the Maltese x Shih Tzu, Blue the rescue kitten (now cat), & Hati a 2nd rescue cat. * 2 week Housesit in Mermaid Waters, Queensland with 4 Rag doll cats - Tiki, PawPaw, Maika & Buddha. (2 Housesits) * 2 week Housesit in Lane Cove with Frank, a Dachshund (3 Housesits) * 6 day Housesit in Earlwood/Five Dock with Harry, a Schnauzer & Lewis, a Fox Terrier (2 Housesits) * 4 day House call in Croydon to feed & spend time with Molly the cat * Walking Zorro & Zeus, two Whippets, in Five Dock * 4 day House call in Five Dock to feed & spend time with Terra the cat.

We are unable to list every Housesit & the pets we have cared for, but will continue to share photo's when we can.

Louise was amazing. She was quick to communicate and kept us posted about our car and dog the whole time we were away. She was lovely to connect with and I can tell she has a real love for animals and easy ability to connect to them. We felt 100% confident leaving them in her care, even given the fact that our dog is a rescue and can be very nervous of new people. He fell in love with her. Louise left our place perfectly clean and tidy and we will definitely ask her to come back!

As Louise travels so much, she has completed many Local & International Housesits & is comfortable with all animals (although Louise is OK to pass on snakes these days :-) ). As a Travel concierge & International tour leader, Louise is able to also assist with Travel arrangements. Many of the Homeowners that she sits for were initially Travel booking Clients - Booking their holidays, then being asked to care for their home & pets for their peace of mind while travelling.

Michael is also very comfortable with animals & forms a wonderful bond with every one we have taken care of. Michael has joined Louise on numerous house & pet sits, but unfortunately, due to running his own company, can not always housesit with Louise. We are both 'handy' & are able to manage any small maintenance requirements (we have had to fix AV challenges - Michael's background, plus Leaking taps, Lights, Cleaning pools, Lawns etc).
