Lovely & trustworthy family

36, Self Employed

38, Dog Trainer

Hello there,

We are a well traveled, German family- Franzi, 36, David, 38, and our two girls (4 and 6 years). We are looking for a lovely, safe, property to house sit, garden, pet sit and do some farm work during our holidays this November
through to October 2024.

David is a certified dog trainer and Franzi grew up in the countryside, caring for many kinds of animals and her cats. Both of us have experience in horse, dog, cat and bird sitting, including walking and exercising horses and dogs, cleaning the barn as well as doing indoor, domestic chores like cooking tasty German food for our hosts, doing dishes, etc.

During our holidays in December/January 2020 we enjoyed our house sitting in Queensland, Sunshine Coast like a little round trip at several places. We started in North Deep Creek where we looked after a beautiful farm with cows, horses, chickens, dogs, a goldfish and the veggie gardens during a dry season. Afterwards we have been invited to look after a cat and a really lovely town house with it's beautiful plants in Brisbane during Christmas. We finished our trip with some local volunteer work and caring for a family house in Traveston, near Noosa with a little dog, a cat, goats, a bird and the gardens with jummy mango trees.

In 2016 at our first visit in Australia we participated in a Help Exchange program for 5 months in Pakenham Upper, Victoria, Australia, at a gorgeous, 15-acre, organic hobby farm where we looked after 6 horses, 3 dogs, 2 cats, fruit trees, a vegetable garden and a 4 bedroom home. The property was surrounded by bush and other farms with lovely owners and it's how we fell in love with Australia!

If you need a helping hand and are looking for trustworthy, reliable and cultured helpers who are open to meeting new people and learning, we would love to meet you and contribute to caring for your property (indoors or out), plants and animals. We are able to provide references and look forward to hearing from you.

Cheers!
Franzi & David + kids

'We have thoroughly enjoyed hosting Franzi and David at our farm. They are a lovely young couple and pleasant to be around. Franzi was excellent with the horses- she gave them daily medicine and grooming and took them for walks as well as tended to them for vet/dental visits. David loved our 3 dogs and did a lot of training with 2 of them, took them on walks and played with them. Both are great domestic workers too- kept the house clean and they gave farm work a go with cutting grass, gardening, painting and did a fine job. They helped out during meal times and enjoyed the remoteness of our farm which enabled them to experience what it is like to be part of a rural farm family. We recommend them!'

It was such a pleasure having Franzi and David housesit for us and look after our two doggies. We couldn’t have asked for more caring, attentive and polite house sitters. Franzi and David had their beautiful daughters and dog Samy with them, but the house was so clean when we returned that it was like they weren’t even here! We couldn’t recommend Franzi and David more highly and would love to have them house sit for us again.

Franzi and family were amazing. Our little Maltese X dog is very anxious, especially with larger Dogs. He was attacked and nearly died, so he reacts with lots of barking and pulling. We had a meet and greet. David was excellent with the dog intro. His knowledge as a dog trainer made it very easy and our dog was ok with it. Our house, the 2 cats and the dogs were very well looked after. I can highly recommend Franzi, David and their 2 very cute little girls and dog Sammie to housesit.

Franzi and David and their children took great care of our pets and home whilst we were overseas. We got regular photos and updates how the pets were and it has been a lovely experience for our first ever housesit. Would definitely recommend this family and engage for another sit if available 🫶🏻

Franzi, David and their girls took such great care of our dogs and home. It was so lovely knowing our dogs were well cared for while we were away.

This beautiful family with two young girls and their golden retriever were a delight to meet. They cared so well for our greyhound and sent us regular photo updates of their time together. Being a dog trainer, David had a wonderful manner and gave us insightful tips. We returned to a spotlessly clean home. I could not recommend them highly enough!

We highly recommend David, Franzi and there 2 daughters, and of course Sammy their Golden Retriever, to anyone looking for amazing pet and house sitters. We were away for just over 3 weeks on a family holiday overseas. We have a 1.5yr old groodle and I also have an allergy to some dogs. Communication was great before and during this time. Our home was clean and looked after, with attention given to my allergy. They are just really lovely people, and Sammy their golden retriever was very well ... MORE

franzi and david were great housesitters for us. our place is extremely dry and hot at the moment and there are lots of jobs to do however they didn't mind at all! they listened to a heap of instructions, communicated whenever they needed to and kept our animals safe and happy. we wish them well with the rest of their visit to Australia and would gladly recommend them as hosuesitters.
