Here is some information on Merv and I: We are a kind, respectful, non-smoking happy couple of 47 and 54 years that have been together for over 14 years. It's a very strong partnership, able to share the pet-sitting routine with ease. As there are two of us, we may sometimes be able to accept bookings that overlap by a few days to create a win/win for everyone.
Merv and I have put everything into a storage unit so our home is everywhere. We have spent less than 20 days in an Airbnb in 2018 as we are always back to back with new bookings and repeat bookings which we are very grateful for. The hosts from Airbnb have also given us a 5 star rating for our easy-going nature and leaving their place spotless. We had over 22 pet-sitting bookings in 2018 with 70-90 applicants applying for the same sits. Our full brochure, video, Pet Questionnaire and genuine testimonials have always stood out to be professional and sincerely has translated to why we do what we do.
We have been Professional House-Sitters for many years and do this full-time, with glowing contactable references, Police Clearances and a PIAA Pet First Aid course.
As we have been a home and pet owner before, we understand what it’s like entrusting your home to someone, so rest assured we will look after it as if it were our own.
Your precious pets will receive our loving care and your routine you have in space for them will be followed. We know they are family and are very important to you, so we become their proxy pet parents, bringing them companionship and lots of happy times. They will also be well-exercised and have plenty of play-time. Coffee shop outings and car-rides to the doggy beach. They will always be part of our routine and come with us when they can.
Being self-employed, we are both blessed to work from our laptops, meaning added security for your house and lots of human contact for your furkids so they can stay relaxed in their own home environment and keep to their daily routines that they are accustomed too. We also have our own transport.

Blown away! The care was exceptional. Whilst away one of our cats got a tick. CL & Merv did everything to ensure she was looked after by the emergency vet and cared for in her recovery. We are forever grateful and will be booking in again.…

Cimone-Louise & Merv are absolute angels. They’re such a wonderful & loving couple. On the day we arrived home, Cimone-Louise sent a voice message and when I played it, my dog could hear her voice & ran around trying to find her. …
