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. There are no other pets in our household. We have a secure garden and a cozy house fronting the River Torrens, Linear Park and are happy to share some fun and cuddles with your pet/s. 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 sized dog or pet. Your pet/s will get plenty of attention and their routine will be followed as closely as possible as far as walks and feeding are concerned to avoid stress and disruption to your pet. Indoor or outdoor pets welcome.
We tend to be requested to look after many pets that are timid of other pets. If this is the case let us know and we can reserve our place exclusively for your pet.
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 for the last 35 years and together we have been House sitting almost full time since 2015. All this has been done through Aussie House Sitters until Nov 2018, when we settled in Adelaide. We have been asked to return as house sitters numerous times and accumulated a total of 22 endorsements through this 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.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Eileen. She is kind, compassionate and has a natural connection with dogs. She clearly does this job for love and Lexi and Indi adore her (which is always a clear indication).
Eileen has come to my aid at a minutes notice a couple of times and for that I’m incredibly grateful. Thank you again. You have been an absolute pleasure to have around.
Eileen and Thomas were amazing sitters for my two girls. They kept me informed and sent photos. Both dogs were so happy and comfortable in their home. Both of my dogs can get anxious so this was a great relief. I highly recommend Eileen and Thomas to care for your pets. They are relaxed, warm and genuine people who obviously love animals. I am not sure who was sadder at the end of the stay, the dogs or Eileen. A really great experience all round. Thank you Eileen and Thomas.
