We are Juliana and George - a veterinarian working in North Shore, and a temporarily grounded pilot jumping between jobs (hopefully flying again someday post-pandemic!).
We started house-sitting through another website when we
in South Auckland and
at Juliana's family home in West Auckland. Housesitting meant we could spend less time commuting (boy, was it a
commute!), and spend more time with animals. We did many housesits throughout 2020 and absolutely loved it. Although the commute is now much shorter, we would really like to continue doing it because we love the different pets we meet, and honestly
being able to help people out at the same time.
As you can expect from a vet, Juliana loves being around animals and is very experienced in handling all different types. She is also trained to spot any concerns with your pets and can have it addressed promptly if required.
George grew up on a farm in Canterbury with dogs, cats, horses, sheep and cattle. As he's far from farm-life here in Auckland, any company with furry companions make him feel at home!
We are happy to give any medication (oral, injectables, fluids) if needed.
We work about 35 hours per week so if your furry family members are comfortable being home alone in the day, that would be ideal. We are happy to feed, play, cuddle when off work in the morning, evenings or days off.
We would be happy to do any other small house care tasks required while you are away e.g. tending to the garden. You can expect regular photo updates.
We have experience looking after and maintaining a home. We have a high standards for ourselves, and will always make sure to leave your home the way we found it.
You can read a couple of reviews we've received uploaded into our gallery.

Juliana and George stayed at our house and looked after our 2 dogs for 5 nights while we were on holiday. They were fabulous and I would highly recommend. One of our dogs has diabetes so it was good to have Juliana’s experience to administer medications. The house was well cared for and as we left it (or better perhaps!).
