About Jillian

I have been full time pet/house sitting for the last 18 months and it has been the most wonderful adventure. I have received 20 five star reviews on another house sitting website. 

This review by Lauren 'We cannot recommend Jillian highly enough - the love and care she showed to our 2 dogs while we were away was second to none. Communication was regular and thorough (including pictures) and the dogs were walked daily and cared for as is they were her own. Our house was spotless when we arrived home and Jillian provided a warm handover at both the start and end of the sit. We cannot thank her enough! We 100% recommend Jillian, 5 stars, AAA+++'

I have had repeat jobs and been recommended to others so I have needed to decline jobs as my calendar has been fully booked.

I love looking after pets and need them in my life now as they bring me so much joy and love. I love walking, playing, grooming them, giving lots of cuddles and massages and making them feel relaxed and happy. I take care of the fur babies as I would my own and dicovered that I am a pet whisperer. As I am retired I can spend quality time with them. I have looked after many different breeds of dogs and cats and seem to be able to connect with them all.
I regularly take photos/videos and give the owners updates on how their fur babies are going. I take my responsibility of your pet with the utmost care however I love to have fun with them also.

I now own my own home which is a four bedroom townhouse with the living area and one bedroom downstairs and 3 bedrooms upstairs. It has a fenced courtyard with garden around the fence and lots of grassy lawn both front and back. The pets can sleep with me in my room during their stay and can go anywhere in the house.

I regularly take the pets out for short breaks during the day and then on 30 minute walks in the cool of the morning and evening to the beach, bush or walking paths nearby.

I would only have one pet or one owner's pets staying at a time.

I am a single active retired woman in my 60's who does not drink or smoke and likes a healthy lifestyle. I love walking in nature and swimming at the beach. I am a creative person who has a passion for photography. I have two daughters and 4 grandchildren who I see often as I can.

I also have a 'Working with children card' (Blue Card) in QLD.

I had a small dog of my own for 15 years. Now I have been house/ pet sitting for over the last 2 years. In that time I have cared for 14 cats (5 cats in the one house) and 21 different dogs and some dogs were repeat house sits. The pets seem to always be very obedient and responsive for me.
