About Louise

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).

Louise is an excellent house sitter, the house was immaculate when we retired from our holiday and the cats seemed very happy and well looked after. I can thoroughly recommend Louise and have already booked her services again.
