We are Troy & Matt, We are great lovers of all pets, big and small and have been Pet & House Sitting for over 6 years. Until we have our own home we have great joy in taking care of other peoples pets. There is nothing more satisfying than coming home to a furry friend who greets you with love and excitement. We have looked after all types of animals including Dogs, Cats, Chickens, Fish and Pet Birds.
Why leave your loved family member in a kennel or cattery when they can stay in their own environment, be played with and loved and cared for, whilst you are away. We will truly make the experience as easy and as seamless as possible for you. We always bring our own bed linen, towels and sheets and we will make sure your home is expertly cleaned for your arrival home. We can feed, walk, play and interact with your loved ones as well as administer any medicines that may be needed. We can also collect your mail (Keep or throw out your junk mail). Put your rubbish, recycle and green bins out and back in again. Water your outdoor and indoor plants. As well as being an extremely caring house guests and being a deterrent to any potential thieves and burglars.
We are currently doing Pet and House sits from Elsternwick across to Glen Iris, Hawthorn, Kew in the East and South East and right through inner Northern and Western suburbs. Please contact us to see if we cover your area.
We also prefer sits that are a minimum of 2 weeks duration but will consider shorter sits on a case by case situation.
Thanks for taking the time to explore our page and we look forward to any questions you may have. We have been Pet & House Sitting for over 5 years through a page on Facebook “Peace Of Mind Pet & House Sitting. Here are some of our reviews from there:
*5 STARS RACHEL FROM PRAHRAN So thankful we've found you! Such a relief to not have to worry about Lola or the house, and to come home to it being so spotless, even the fridge was clean, all the mail neatly collected, the fruit bowl topped up, plants looking better than when we left and most importantly Lola is very happy! Can't fault your service, just about to message you for the next one :)
*5 STARS BLANKA FROM HAWTHORN We have used house sitters for more than 10 years now. This June/July was the first time we had Troy, and without a doubt this was the best experience we have had. We came back to a spotless house, our cat well looked after (he needs medication twice a day as well as feeding and cuddles), and while we were away we had occasional photo updates online. No drama, no problems, and nothing to fix when we got home. Troy took notice of every little detail and missed nothing. He understands the value of things and looks after your possessions as he would his own. He is reliable, trustworthy and a most considerate house sitter, and he is great with animals. I couldn't recommend him enough. Already booked him for next year's big trip (best to get in early). Thank you Troy!
*5 STARS LACHLAN FROM CAULFIELD NORTH Troy is a stellar house AND pet sitter and I cannot recommend him enough to anyone who may need someone to look after their home and loved ones. My cat loves having Troy come and stay with him when I go away, and I know and trust Troy will do a great job with him. ALSO Troy is super respectful of my home - I always come back to a home that is cleaner, tidier and more homely than when I left!
*5 STARS SUZY FROM YARRAVILLE Troy looked after my old staffy last year and did the most amazing job. I got daily photos and updates of Billy being walked, cuddled and generally loved. I could also relax knowing that there was someone in the house which was kept in immaculate condition. I would highly recommend Troy and hope that he's available next time we go away!
*5 STARS SHANE SCANLON FROM MELBOURNE Troy has been a wonderful dog and house sitter over there years with all of our dogs and homes. On the latest house/dog sit he managed a serious incident with our Golden "Milo" pictured. He developed an eye ulcer which Troy dealt with superbly. On another note the house was impeccable on our return. We are both extremely happy with his service and will continue to use him into the future. I can be contacted through this for individual reference.
*5 STARS TIM FROM PARKVILLE Troy has cared for our home very thoughtfully for various periods over the past couple of years. He is reliable, trustworthy and a most considerate house sitter. Plants are watered, all things attended to, he even feeds the worms in the worm farm! His presence means there's no lingering thought wondering if everything is ok when we're not home. And he leaves the place immaculately, in fact, I'd say even better than when we leave! I personally recommend Troy without any hesitation. Book in him now so you can really enjoy your holiday.
*5 STARS PETER FROM SEDDON Troy has been an amazing help with my kids and house sitting. He is so lovely, honest and trustworthy, you can be rest assured everything is under control. Troy goes that extra mile which is wonderful credit to him. My kids love him. Thank you for giving me peace of mind while I'm away. Peter Mac
*5 STARS JOANNE FROM KINGSVILLE Troy was an amazing house sitter and pet minder. I have no hesitation recommending him. He looked after our house and cat for 8 weeks and I felt so confident that he was doing such a great job. We and our cat love him!
*5 STARS JOHN FROM MELBOURNE Troy looked after our house and menagerie for nearly a month and we came home to a spotless home and our much loved up pets. This includes chickens and fish. He kept our tropical gardens looking lush and left the fridge full on our return from a lenghty overseas holiday. I can not recommend Troy highly enough as a trusted and perfect house sitter.

Troy and Matt are the best!! I can not recommend them highly enough. Our dog Kauri was honestly so happy and well taken care of. Spoilt with attention and all the walks he could want while we were away. It made our trip all the more enjoyable knowing (and seeing thanks to daily photos and videos) how well taken care of he was. Kauri had recently had surgery on his leg and although mostly recovered could still have a bit of a hop from time to time - Troy and Matt were very attentive to this contacting us straight away when they were unsure about his hopping and being very proactive to make sure Kauri was ok (which he was!) their care/concern was heartfelt and dedicated. Not only was our dog so well taken care of, but the house too! We had a large storm come through which caused some flooding at our house while we were gone - but Troy and Matt kept in touch and had it all under control. The home we came back to was beautifully cleaned and organised - with fresh milk in the fridge for us so we could have a cuppa as soon as we sat down! Also, as an added bonus they were a hit with our neighbours - everyone has commented on what lovely house sitters we had. 10/10 We will absolutely use these guys again!…
