55, School Counsellor/ Teacher
I look forward to house sitting for you and if you have animals (and/or a garden) caring for them as well. I have been around animals since a child having lived on a farm until I was seven.
I began house sitting in Sydney in 2015 after being asked to mind my friends kelpies on a regular basis. Due to renting, I was unable to have animals and was glad to help as I love animals. In February 2016, I began minding one home (large garden) every other week, when the owners went to their farm.
In 2018 I moved to Melbourne and resumed house sitting (mainly for colleagues). I've bought and sold a house and have been teaching in FNQ. It's time for some 'me time', so I have headed west and have based myself in WA for the year.
I've been working as a school counsellor/teacher for over 20 years and have a Working with Children Check and a National Police Check. I am a clean, honest and reliable person; I'm a non smoker and drink rarely.
I have house sat all types of homes; large homes and small ones. I've sat large dogs and tiny ones and many cats of various breeds. And one solo bird! I love animals, so pet setting meets that need well. As for gardens - I love them.
My first dog sit referee wrote ...
Having worked with Sharon for a number of years I have come to know of her interest in and love of dogs. She would often visit and spend time with our very energetic and demanding kelpies. So impressed was I by her genuine interest and care for our dogs that I asked Sharon to house-sit while we were away for 10 days in June / July. We left for holidays confident in the knowledge that our dogs would be well fed, walked, entertained, cared for and loved. We were also confident that our house would be looked after - Sharon is most trustworthy and honest. We came home to find two very happy and contented dogs and a house that was treated as a home.

With me looking after your place, you can have your holiday anxiety free.
I look forward to hearing from you.
