About Mark


I like to keep pets company and give them something to look forward to every day. They are living beings, doing their best to live their lives. As a hooman, they expect attention and care from us, and the hooman should always serve meal times consistently. =)

I am experienced at looking at doggos from a chihuahua to a golden retriever. Big and strong dogs as well as little dogs that think they are big and strong! I have also owned and looked after cats. I'm used to different pet personalities and appreciate animals all have their own unique behaviour - which is why hoomans love their companionship!

My job is a data engineer and I usually work from home Monday to Friday. I'm a very neat person and will also look after your house, and don't mind doing some basic gardening, and other chores while you are gone. Happy to provide references, a police check, or have a chat on the phone if you want to know anything more.

When you hire me, you'll get:

  • Regular anecdotal updates about how your pet is doing.
  • Regular photos of your pet while out and about, or at home.
  • Managing any maintenance issues if at all required.
  • Collection and notification of mail.
  • Gardening (watering and weeding, if required).
  • General cleaning, such as dusting, vacuuming, and other chores discussed before commencement.
  • Any other special requests, as agreed.

House Sitting
Rick, 2024-02-10

Mark was a live in sitter for us and our Field Golden Retriever Tully for a month over Christmas whilst we travelled overseas.

Mark is a quiet and gentle soul who showed a real affinity for larger dogs and in particular Goldens.

Tully is an energetic 2 year old and it was obvious that he and Mark struck up quite a bond over that period. Although he doesn't drive, Mark managed to give Tully the walks and exercise he required twice a day and the fact that Mark works from home was very comforting, knowing Tully would not be left alone for long periods of time.

We were provided with regular photos of Tully during our absence and it was clear the separation was not causing him any anguish.

He kept a good eye on our pool, ensuring that it was properly maintained whilst we were away and the house was very clean and orderly on our return.

We have no hesitation in recommending his services to any future client.

House Sitting
Bernadine, 2024-01-23

Mark was a fantastic sitter for our 3 large dogs and our cat. Mornings were busy for Mark between walking and feeding our pets but he managed to see to all of their needs as well as make time to show them affection. Our pets were all very relaxed and happy when we returned home.

Mark is a conscientious house sitter too, ensuring he left our home in the condition we left it for him.

We will definitely use Mark's services in the future.
