About Kerry

I have been house and pet sitting for several years but I am specifically gathering more frequent experience (and references) to improve my chances of getting sits abroad where you don't get to meet the people in advance. I love how having a home with animals connects you to a place and provides that love and attention to stop you getting lonely, as sometimes happens, when traveling alone. I can look after any household animal providing the owner leaves their specific instructions. I'm not a farmer by any means!

I help people who are struggling with a significant medical condition in their family. I help the whole family to adjust and live well as an occupational therapist. I also consult for businesses who are trying to improve the accessibility of their environment. This means I work at home sometimes. I'm also a foster parent of children and cats from the SPCA. I am used to managing complex situations and provide a very high level of care to your home and pets.

I am like the favourite aunty who takes them on new adventures - new beaches, parks etc, with new friends - human and animal. I have never had an "anxious" dog be anxious for long.

I love to dance, act and sing. Traveling is my expensive hobby so I'm glad the pet sitting can make my travels longer.

House Sitting
Abbey, 2020-07-19

Kerry is a lovely person, but unfortunately didnt follow my requests below with my two dogs.

They were both meant to be locked away at night, however were left out and slept on our bed with her.

One of our dogs when in the house is meant to stay on his bed, and when getting back there was fur all over the couches from him sitting on the couch.

When leaving the house the next morning the dogs werent separated for eating , which was a big concern as they could fight over the food and no one would be there to stop this. Our freezer was left open more than likely by accident, probably from her giving them veal bones in the morning. When asking why the rules were not followed Kerry wasnt apologetic at first and tried justifying why she hadnt followed these. After explaining I have to have the rules in place for my dogs because of their past issues she was very apologetic and offered a refund.

She did feed our dogs and did make sure they were cuddled and loved. Was just disappointing the requests I asked werent done :(
