I'm a freelance writer who returned to New Zealand after eleven years in Japan last year. Since then I have been house-sitting, and a major highlight has been meeting a variety of lovely dogs! So far I have cared for an elderly terrier, a sweet-natured shih-tzu who loved to cuddle, a big black labrador, two beagles, a charming King Charles spaniel and my family's own minature Jack Russel. In addition to my year of looking after other people's dogs as a house-sitter, I grew up with dogs, a lovely golden retriever and another King Charles spaniel. I tend to make friends with the dogs I look after quickly, and go the extra mile for them.
In addition to the dogs, I've cared for a variety of cats, donkeys, sheep and even two hamsters!
I'm about to start a new job. While I have fixed hours 7:00-3:00 PM at the time of writing, the job is remote, meaning I can work from anywhere with a strong enough internet connection. This allows me to house-sit, and, to a limited extent, continue to dog-walk. Animals were such a major part of my life growing up and I've found that I am happiest when I have them in my life, whether it's waking up to find a cat sitting next to me, or the enthusiastic welcome of a dog that knows it's time for a walk. I would love to meet you and your pet(s).
Great communication and excellent care. Dante was very attached t Louise by the end of the period.
