Coombabah – Gold Coast – Queensland – 2019

By | Recent Assignments | No Comments

2 Character filled PitBull sisters were my company for two weeks.

For this assignment, I am in a beautiful home that backed onto a gum tree studded national park. 

With scenic bushland walking trails leading to the spectacular Coombabah river, it was a delightful location to care for two fun loving Pit Bull Terriers sisters named Sasha and Lulu.

Whilst related, Saha and Lulu were actually like chalk and cheese!

Lulu was a rocket, always full over energy and totally committed to chasing her ball whilst, on the other hand, Sasha would prefer to be dragged on the end of her lead upside down and determined not to participate in the exercise of a walk.

 I likened Lulu to an untiring thoroughbred race horse with speed to mach, whereas Sasha, more like a Christmas pudding!

None the less two very loveable pups who simply enjoyed company and cuddles.

Sanctuary Cove is a gated community and town in the suburb of Hope Island in the Gold Coast area of Queensland, Australia

 

Sanctuary Cove is a completely self-contained residential environment with its own shopping centre and entertainment facilities. It also many of the facilities of a holiday resort, such as boating marinas and golf courses and is one of my many favourite Australian places to be.

It is also home to Mittens and Lily, two very adventurous felines, some gold fish and a beautiful black Labrador named “Java”.

My hosts Jen, Steve, Sam and India were wonderful and ensured an amazing basket of goodies as a welcome to their lovely home which is a beautifully renovated “Queenslander”.

The Queenslander house is a classic piece of Australian architectural design with its distinctive timber and corrugated iron appearance.

                     

Here's what the owners had to say:

 

 

 

 

 

We feel so lucky to have met such a positive, caring, consistent and energetic force that is Anthony!

What a joy to meet him and feel instantly relaxed about sharing our home and our pets.
A truly thoughtful person, Anthony communicates superbly and reassuringly.
His cheerfulness and relaxedness rubbed off on the pets and returning home was like returning to a friend..we shared a cup of tea before Anthony travelled to his next homesitting.
With such incredible life experience, Anthony is truly a fresh of breath air.
Thank you Anthony for being so wonderful to us and our pets.
It was such a privilege to meet you, and I hope next we go away that you will be free to come back if you choose.
We all will miss you and you deserve nothing but the best life offers.
Warm regards,
Jenny , Steve, Sam and India

Middle Harbour Sydney

One very smart border collie named "Ellie" and an extremely cute rabbit. "Buttons" is my charge for 3.weeks.

In a beautiful home, perched amongst the spectacular gum trees with view to Middle Harbour, Sydney, Australia.

The house is in close to the end of the Killarney Heights peninsula and it’s so quiet with lovely bushland views, native birds, lovely walks and sensational glimpses of the harbour.

Steph and Steve are fabulous hosts and their home, spacious. 

Buttons was no trouble to look after and I never know that a rabbit could exude so much personality and character. 

Ellie, on the other hand is a bundle of energy with an obsession with keeping guard from her observation deck ensuring that all who passed and, of course, other dogs were all well aware of her presence. Ellie, just loves company and anyone with whom she can play fetch. 

It was indeed a most pleasant assignment in an area with a lovely village centre close by with an abundance of eateries and mandatory great coffee shops.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What the owners have said:

 

Anthony came to our house in Sydney, Australia, for 3 weeks in October 2019.
This was our first experience of using someone unknown to us, which was daunting.
From the first contact, we realised that his clear and articulate communication was already allaying our concerns. We were lucky to have a few days with Anthony ahead of leaving, which gave us time to see that both home and dog, Ellie, would be in great hands. He is a perfect, conscientious and thoughtful house guest. With a busy family of 4, he fitted in seamlessly and felt like part of the family immediately.
We got regular updates during our time away, with some great pics of Ellie showing the fun she was having. It made such a difference to our holiday knowing that the house and Ellie were well cared for.
We returned to find a very happy dog and some fridge essentials and treats awaiting us. He didn’t even mind us dragging him to the airport for a very antisocial pick up time!
We managed to squeeze in another couple of days with Anthony before he headed to his next assignment. This time just reinforced my belief that he is a very kind, thoughtfully and caring person, with a great sense of humour, who we hope will keep in touch. Definitely 10/10.
Best skills:Pets well cared for, Followed instructions, Home neat and clean, Maintained garden, Punctual, Resourceful

Meet a beautiful very friendly little kitten known as "Mittens".

Nestled close to the shores of the picturesque Coombabah Lake in the Gold Coast Australia is the home of cutest and most affection Kitty, named “Mittens.

Mitten’s, owners spent 3 weeks travelling to South East Asia and it was an absolute delight to care for her during the time they were away. I didn’t need to wear my watch during this assignment as this cat must have a built in clock and her preference for dinner service was made very vocal ! But then again, she does like to think that she is always hungry !!

Meet Chloe…
A most loving 8 year old Labradoodle.

 

 

Chloe’ is the most loving, easy to care for dog and like all of her breed just thrives on love and attention.

Chloe’s beautiful home is situated in a lovely new Perth estate on the very doorway to the picturesque Swan Valley in Western Australia. With more than 40 wineries Swan Valley is Western Australia’s oldest wine region and is situated just 25 minute drive from Perth’s city centre and 10 minutes from Perth’s domestic airport.

My wonderfully generous and very house proud hosts, Jane and Darryl have provided the utmost hospitality and welcomed me into their home to care for Chloe whilst they take a relaxing two week adventure with their new caravan. 

With spectacular parks, gardens and lakes literally across the road,  it’s made for a delightful house sit experience and a perfect location to enjoy Chloe’s company on some very nice walks.

Wow!! Anthony truly is a 5 STAR sitter!

We were lucky enough to have Anthony sit our house and fur babies - Max and Buddy - and he made sure we all had a wonderful time!
Anthony is a great warm hearted guy who is a professional through and through.
He has a lovely caring and calm way about him a this showed with his clear communication through every step of the pre, during and post sit.
We are relatively new to having pet/housesitters and Anthony helped to make the experience comfortable, simple and easy.
Anthony thoughtfully keep in touch with us with regular messages and photos (the best that have ever been taken of our little guys!) and we returned home to an immaculate house and very happy pups.

Dubai – United Arab Emirates

By | Recent Assignments | No Comments

Dubai is the largest and most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on the southeast coast of the Persian gulf.

 

My assignment is in a lovely spacious light filled apartment overlooking Emirates Golf Club and is also home to two very loving kitties, Jasper and Bella. 

                     

JASPER

Both Jasper and Bella are rescue cats from the region and have been living as “indoor” cats with their owners for 8 years.

They are full of character and personality with Jasper pretending that he rules the house and Bella simply letting him think that’s the case.

Their owners are away few a weeks away, and, of course, I am here to ensure that these very playful felines have company and, of course, enjoy the comforts of familiar surroundings, usual food routine and an expected share of treats.

Jasper and Bella are sociable creatures and are obviously much happier when there is someone at home to keep them company. They are fed twice a day but need a little bit of monitoring to make sure that Bella doesn’t rush her food as she can have a delicate digestive system and also to ensure Mr “Bossy Boots” Jasper doesn’t eat more than his fair share!

They are very happy when the patio door is open (with the fly screen pulled across to prevent escape) as they can enjoy fresh air and enjoy chatting with the birds that frequent the balcony.

BELLA

Bella can be a little highly strung and anxious but it didn’t take her long to get used to me. Jasper is a gentle giant who can tell the time with his stomach and will wake you with rather loud and melodic “meows” telling you its breakfast time.

From first contact, Anthony was the ultimate House sitting professional.

He allayed any concerns I had about using a house sitter (this was my first time using Trusted House Sitters) straightaway with his friendly, open and easy going manner and we had several emails and conversation in the lead up to the sit.

During the 2 week sit, we were delighted to receive regular updates, photos and messages of our two cats and what they were up to.

I could tell by the photos that they were very happy to have such great company whilst we were travelling and Anthony quickly and sensitively worked out their personalities to a tee. Was even relieved that Anthony tolerated Jasper's early morning wake up calls for breakfast!! I felt so relaxed during our trip, uber confident that our home and our much loved fur-babies were being wonderfully cared for.

On our return, well - wow!

The flat was absolutely spotless and we were greeted by two very chilled out pussy cats.

What's more, a thoughtful gift of flowers, fruit and delicious chocolates along with a little note had been left to welcome us home. Really touched by the thoughtfulness.

Thank you for everything Anthony. Please do come back and sit for us again.

Meet a beautiful rescue dog
so sweet that she was named “Sugar”

Sugar was rescued from a shelter in July 2018.

She is a very timid and has an extremely sweet soul, hence why the volunteers named her Sugar!

Sugar had been living on the street for 2 years but is actually 5 years old and her past is a bit of a mystery.

Her owners, Chanelle and Dan have dramatically changed her rather grim street existence and now Sugar luxuriates in a beautiful penthouse in Singapore.

Chanelle and Dan were worried though that putting her in boarding kennel whilst they go away would stress her out, so they desperately wanted to keep her in her own home to minimise any disruption to her routine and thus I had the privilege of caring for her whilst they holidayed overseas.

Sugar is fully house trained, walks perfectly on the lead without pulling and  is a pretty chilled.
All in all, a very affectionate girl who was a delight to care for and lady who spends most of the day snoozing in her bed.
Other than sleeping, her two favourite things are cuddles and eating chicken!

Here’s what the owners had to say:

 

 

We were so lucky to have Anthony look after our fur baby. He left the flat cleaner than we left it, washed all his bedding and towels and even left us welcome home flowers and gift!

So thoughtful.

And he of course, showered our dog, Sugar in love and attention, all the while keeping us updated via WhatsApp.

Plus, we were lucky enough to spend one evening with him and he’s very good company too!

West Coast - Singapore

Chanelle and Dan

Sugar always enjoyed her evening walks and whilst she was not particularly sociable with other dogs, the one exception was a lovely stray dog the locals have named “Blackie”. 

I’m pretty sure these two had a special attraction for each other as whenever Blackie appeared there was certainly a lot of rubbing noses and tail wagging going on 🙂

The French Riviera

Two very special rescue puppies, a very beautiful home and the utmost in caring and very loving owners....

One of my most favourite parts of the world in Southern France made even more special with the company of Teddy and Monty!

Both rescue pups, Teddy and Monty are two charismatic little boys are a true delight to be with.

One is a Parson Russell cross and the other is a Tibetan Terrier cross (I think). They get on really together and like a rough and tumble at home or playing with their various toys. They both love affection and cuddles.

Their owner is away and I have the absolute pleasure of continuing the fabulous training that has been lovingly introduced by their owners and very cleverly adopted and displayed with an abundance of happiness by the dogs. There are games, treats and both visual and oral commands that are all about phsycology and designed to be mutually beneficial for the boys and owners alike.

The results are obedience.. (well.. mostly :)), but more importantly harmony and a very stress free existence for the boys who in a previous life had been induced with a number of nervous disorders as a result of being mistreated. They were both highly sensitive and reacted and were frightened by unusual noises.

Thankfully all the torment for these pups is in the past and today they both get to luxuriate in a beautiful home on the French Riviera and reside with very caring owners who understandably just love them to bits!

One of the privileges of being a trusted house sitter is the opportunity to meet and spend time with just wonderful doggies like Teddy and Monty.

What the owners have said:

 

Talk about setting the bar! From excellent communication before the stay, to warm and cheerful demeanour and competent, relaxed attitude to the large property and the two little dogs,
I could not have asked for better. We had fun walking the dogs together before I left and he kept me posted throughout.
I'd have him visit again any time.
Thank you for everything Anthony!! Just wow!

Hamburg – Germany

By | Recent Assignments | No Comments

Two fabulous kittens, Luke and Leia, and a fabulous apartment for a month close to the city centre of Hamburg, Germany.

When you have two beautiful young kittens that have always been “inside” cats and their loving mother has to urgently travel overseas on business for a month, who are you going to call? 

Yup, you got it…. a trusted house sitter of course!

So, it was a quick flight for Anthony from his previous assignment in UK and a late night arrival at which time the kitten’s owner had already boarded her flight to USA.  

But with the help of a friend, the owner had arranged for a meeting at Hamburg Airport, a quick drive to the apartment to meet the cats and with a few basic instructions and the exchange of keys to the apartment, all was in perfect order.

 

Naturally, most things are common sense when you have a wide experience in pet sitting.

However, with the assistance of the great communication and messaging app, “WhatsApp”, peace of mind prevailed for everyone and it was business, play and feed time as usual for these very cherished little felines.

Wroxeter – Shropshire – United Kingdom

By | Recent Assignments | No Comments

Two fabulous pups Bertie and Patrick and beautiful Victorian home with gardens and dingle located in Shropshire UK

The home is wIthin the Shropshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and in close proximity to the Wroxeter roman ruins and the World Heritage site of Ironbridge. 

The owners are away for three weeks on a trip to Australia

 

Patrick

This gracious character home is steeped and surrounded by history and the most amazing grounds in which to spend time playing with Patrick and Bertie. Indeed a lovely experience and a pleasure to caretake in this elegant property for my wonderfully generous hosts and these two adorable pups. 

Patrick, an elderly Patterdale comes with a mountain of wisdom, experience and tenacity and is a perfect balance for his recently new friend and addition to the family, Bertie, the Cockerpoo who comes with all of the enthusiasm, energy and untiring mishieveous habits that come with this people loving breed.

Bertie

 

 

It was indeed a great pleasure to investigate Bertie’s adaptability and selective memory. It was an opportunity to continue some obedience training with Bertie and I was delighted to report that my endeavours were somewhat successful and with a gergeous pup who just loves to please.

Thank you Mandy and Mark for a fabulous 4 weeks.

Here's what the owners had to say...

Anthony is a charming, thoughtful man who looked after our house and dogs for over three weeks.
The dogs obviously loved his company and we were very comfortable leaving them with him despite only meeting the evening before.
He kept us up to date throughout our holiday with incredible photos and even videos of their exploits - which as one is a rather over exuberant Cockapoo pup and the other a rather curmudgeonly elderly patterdale were interesting to say the least.
We felt quite sorry for Anthony at times!
We returned home to lovely flowers and fruit - testament to his thoughtfulness and to two happy and healthy dogs.

What the owners said:

This was the very first time we entrusted our house and two kitties to a complete stranger and it was wonderful.
Anthony is extremely worthy of his 5 star rating.
He sent us daily updates with great photos of our two cats, he kept the house tidier than we do and he is a really lovely person.
Thank you so much Anthony and we hope you will come back.

Ormeau – Gold Coast – Queensland – Australia

By | Recent Assignments | No Comments

A resort style property, in a wonderful bush setting with an abundance of wildlife and colourful birds is the home of Taj.

Taj is an adorable, unassuming Maltese and my companion for 6 weeks during a tranquil assignment in this tropical Australian bushland setting.

Ormeau is midway between Brisbane and Surfers Paradise in Australia.

Taj’s owners have taken a 6 week  planned holiday and “lifetime” adventure to explore the length and breadth of Europe.

Taj would be one of the most delightful little pups I have ever met. He hardly ever barks and dedicated to only a few passions in his life: Company, Going for Walks and his addiction and obsession with anyone who will throw his ball.

What the owners have said

We could not have hoped for a better house sitter than Anthony.
We were away for 6 weeks and knew that our home and precious dog, Taj, were in trusted hands, therefore making our holiday trouble free.

Anthony was everything you need in a sitter...contacting us very regularly with updates and sending fabulous pics often.

We arrived home to a very clean house and found flowers, fruit, chocolates, Easter buns, bread, milk and a 'welcome home' sign 🙂

I'm sure we have made a lifelong friend in Anthony and look forward to seeing him again.

We would totally recommend Anthony as the perfect house sitter. He left our dog, house and car in perfect condition.

Meet a beautiful 14 week old and very cheeky Golden Retriever Puppy known as "Charlie".

The owners have taken a week to catch up with family in Tasmania whilst I look after their four legged family back at home in a suburb of Brisbane, Australia.

Maryam is Charlie’s human Mum and is very keen on training him. She has been doing an exceptional job in teaching him obedience, commands and a few very cute tricks along the way.

Naturally, Maryam was delighted that have experience in dog training and was very keen for me to reinforce Charlie’s understanding of commands. Charlie was also a great student and I was able to continue with program whilst mum was away.

Charlie also lives with three very lovely feline companions, Casper, Mishka and Monty
