Hi There! We are a couple in our mid 50s who have retired early so have plenty of time to give your pet attention and make them our best friend.
House Sits are most often undertaken by Eileen and Dog Walking can be either Eileen or Tomas. A walk will take 45 mins-1 hr and will be exclusive, with no other dogs.
For Home Stays or Day Care in our own house there are no other pets in our household and if your pet is timid of other pets then we are happy to reserve their stay exclusive of any other pets, if you let us know this. We have a secure garden and a cozy house fronting the River Torrens, Linear Park and are happy to share some fun and cuddles.
It is a non-smoking household with a peaceful atmosphere, loads of sunshine and space in a secure, fenced backyard. Please note that in our own home we will only take SMALL dogs for overnight home stays and day care who are a minimum of 18 months old but for house sits we can cater for any size or age of dog or pet. Your pet/s will get plenty of attention and their walking and feeding routines will be followed as closely as possible to minimise stress and disruption. Indoor or outdoor pets welcome. If they are used to sleeping on your bed at night we are also happy to continue this routine.
Happy to administer medication but will need some direction if IV is required. If we go on any outings they can come too so they will only be left alone on the rarest of occasions. Eileen has been a part-time house sitter since in her 20s and has also managed accommodation in the tourism sector so has a high level of maintaining cleanliness. Together we have been house sitting whilst travelling since 2015.
In Nov 2018 we resettled in Adelaide. We have been asked to return as house sitters numerous times and accumulated a total of 22 endorsements through another site since beginning. (Happy to provide phone numbers as references) We began doing this to fill a hole that our dog left in our heart and now have many new furry friends that fill that hole. Now that we have settled in this lovely location we invite pets to our home and have the wealth of experience to share that we have gained over the last few years in making their stay with us as rich as possible without you having to worry whilst they are with us.
You will receive plenty of updates over the course so that your time away from your loved one/s can also be relaxing.
We would highly recommend Eileen without any reservations. We could not have asked for anything better and were most impressed by the way Eileen took care of all our pets and our house. She is very caring and sent us regular updates while we were away and the pets were 'spoilt' exactly as we would have. I have only one word to sum up Eileen's work ethic and that is 'excellent'.
Will be definitely be calling on Eileen again
Glen and Sheila
Eileen and Tomas have done a great job walking our service dog Libby.
They really know and love dogs. Always very punctual, always communicating how Libby went on their walks.
I highly recommend their service and I trust them to do the best for our dog.
We will be using Eileen and Tomas again in the future. Thankyou for your wonderful help
