Thank you both for caring for our house and dog like your own. We were very impressed with everything and will definitely be contacting you again for future sits!
MATT & MEL (South Bunbury WA, Jun 2023 - 2 weeks)
Ruth and Jurg are an amazing, warm and friendly couple and we would highly recommend them as house sitters. Trust and confidence that you have left your furry friends (and house) in safe hands is so important and we couldn’t be happier with the whole experience and peace of mind that they gave us. Right from the very first contact we had with Ruth and Jurg there was great communication and this continued throughout our trip with many regular updates and photos. They took the best care of our ... MORE

Ruth and Juerg have been wonderful. They were really understanding and showed up early in the morning and stayed an extra night as our flight times were a little awkward. We came back to a tidy home, happy dog and plants that had all survived the heat wave. Thanks again!!
TESSA (Herron WA, Jan 2024 - 1 week)
I highly recommend Ruth and Jurg as house and pet sitters. They handled my cat's medication needs and managed to get cuddles from her despite her strong fear of new people. They took time to meet with me prior to the sit, provided regular updates and photos, and even went above and beyond in the garden, planting new vegetables where ours had died prior to the sit. Thank you both.
KARLA (Millbridge WA, Dec 2023 - 3 weeks)
Ruth & Jurg stepped in at last minute after a previous housesitter cancelled at short notice. Couldn't have asked for better sitters, they pampered my pooch, planted veges for me and left my house sparkling clean. Highly recommend!

It was our pleasure to look after Richie, completely fell in love with him. 💋
We had Ruth and Jurg for 7 weeks looking after our house, garden, chickens and dog. They were lovely. Communication was good and they sent us photo updates also. Our dog was happy on our return and missed them. They were reliable, trustworthy, and treated our home as they would their own. Thank you Ruth and Jurg.
MARTHA (Busselton WA, May 2023 - 1 month 3 weeks)
Ruth and Jurg are a friendly, charming and easygoing retired couple who cared for our foster greyhound (Jack) and house recently. When we met, they impressed us as being very experienced, capable and adaptable house-sitters. This gave us great confidence, which proved to be well-founded. They kept us well informed during our absence and we returned to find Jack and the house in excellent condition. We would be very happy to recommend Ruth and Jurg, and to have them house-sit for us again when ... MORE

Ruth and Jurg were amazing. This was our first time having someone we did not know take care of our home and pets so we were a little apprehensive. We had absolutely nothing to worry about, I can not recommend them highly enough. Such wonderful animal loving people. They took the best care of our 2 dogs our cat and our home. Our pets adored them. Will be recommending them to everyone we know and would definitely have them in our home again.
JULIE (LAKELANDS WA, Jan 2021 - 1 week 3 days)
We are very grateful to Ruth and Jorg for the excellent care they took of our home and garden. Our dog Bandit can be anxious and his prone to Eczema Ruth and Jorg were patient and took loving care of him even sourcing him grain free and high protein food. Thank you to you both.
DEBORAH (Butler WA, Oct 2020 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Thank you for your kind review.
Well what can I say these guys are 5 star my fur baby (Duke) looks like he has been on a spa holiday so chilled and relaxed. We came home late to a warm clean and tidy house and an even warmer welcome. Would highly recommend these guys very professional :-)
JACQUELINE (BOYANUP WA, May 2019 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Ruth and Jorg are a delightful couple and they love pets. My house and cats could not have been better looked after.
JUDITH (Quinn's Rocks WA, Apr 2019 - 3 weeks)
Ruth and Jurg pet and house sitted our dog Buddy for a 2 1/2 week period recently. They are a really warm, down to earth genuine couple who really made our holiday away great as we knew our Buddy was well loved and cared for like there own. They were great with texting and sending photos of Buddy and it was clear that he was relaxed and bonded well. They were very attentive to him and he was able to go with them on little outings and walks. Ruth and Jurg took good care of the house / garden ... MORE
SANDRA (Mahogany Creek WA, Feb 2019 - 2 weeks 4 days)
I could not have asked for a more lovely couple to look after my fur babies, and my house and garden. They were absolutely wonderful. They kept my 11 year old daughter up to date with photos of our animal's antics. My vegi garden looked much better on our return!! The house was spotlessly tidy. Would recommend them to anyone.
KATHY (Guildford WA, Jan 2019)
Ruth and George are wonderful. They treated my dog as their own and kept me informed of how he was going with regular pictures. My home was well looked after and I do not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants to feel comfortable leaving and know their pets are well cared for. I will definately use them in the future.
LORRAINE (Rockingham WA, Nov 2018 - 4 weeks)
Ruth and George have just spent a month house sitting for us and taking care of our dog Banjo. What a wonderful couple they are. We came home to a lovely clean home and a very spoilt dog. We could not have asked for a more trusting and special couple to have entrusted our home and dog to. Banjo loved having them and missed them a great deal. Thank you Ruth and George and hopefully we will see you back here next year.
JAN (Dunsborough WA, Aug 2018 - 4 weeks)
I can strongly recommend Jurg & Ruth as house sitters and pet minders. Our Jack Russel enjoyed their 3 1/2 months stay and he was happy and healthy when we returned.
JEFF (Safety Bay WA, May 2018 - 3 months 3 weeks)

House Security

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
