Retired experienced dog owner

66, Semi - retired/ documentary researcher

I'm semi- retired & live in the Blue Mountains, NSW. My greyhound died a 3 years ago and I'm still ‘between dogs" and "pet free" at the moment because I want to travel.. However I'd love to have a dog in my life again (without the long term commitment). I own my house and am originally from Balmain (30+ years). I'm at a total crossroads in life right now so I'm open to house sitting options in the Inner West in Sydney or interstate for a change of scenery. I would love to go to Melbourne city, Mornington Peninsula?, Castlemaine?

I'm new to house sitting as I've always been the pet owner...I now have 2 reviews on this website as a sitter and I've also attached a screenshots of my reviews from Airbnb house owners I've stayed with in my photo section.

I'm quite fastidious with cleaning. Your house doesn't have to be grand but it does have to be clean, and I would leave it in the same condition you left it in on handover.

I've had 3 dogs of my own (see photo profiles): A greyhound, a belgian shepherd and a border collie from a puppy to 13 years old. My dogs totally ruled my life so I understand how important it is to find the "right sitter" so you can go away with peace of mind. If at all possible I want to meet you & your pooch face to face, or at least Skype to see if it's a "good fit" for both of us.

I’m a dog lover of most breeds but very partial to greyhounds as I’m still grieving and had Josephine for many years.

Robyn did a great job looking after our Staffy. He can be a puller on walks but Robyn did well handling him. Our house was well looked after (Robyn even put our indoor plants out when it rained) and Robyn made sure we were kept up to date with photos. Thank you for a great house sit Robyn

Thank you Robyn for another stress free house sit. Walter was very happy and content when we got home to a spotless apartment. Would have you back any time!

Thank you Robyn for a stress free house sit! Robyn sent us frequent photos of our dog Walter, checked in often and left our house spotless. We would happily have you house sit again. Thank you!
