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 recently 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.
A massive thank you for looking after Aarya! He usually gets quite anxious when we leave him for holidays at dog boarding places/pet hotels, and when we pick him up it takes him a couple of days to become normal and happy again. I did not have this issue whatsoever with Eileen and Tomas. Aarya was so excited when we got to their place and came back home as a happy boy who looked like he had loads of fun.
Thank you so much for all your kindness and care towards him! And for the daily updates with pictures! It was very easy to arrange a time to have an initial visit and to book him in with your prompt replies. Thanks again!! :)
I could not have got a better sitter for my baby girl. Eileen and Tomas was such great dog loving people. I will certainly be back. Well done Eileen my Puppy was exceptionally happy
