Hi, I'm Dan. I'm a 35 year old honest, reliable, homebody who loves dogs.
I began house sitting and dog minding four years ago, when I looked after a beautiful labrador for two months while her owners were overseas. After a few years of house sitting occasionally, I began doing this full time in August 2016 and am loving being able to spend time with some fun dogs and having the freedom to live a more relaxed, healthy lifestyle.
I'm experienced with a range of small to large breeds - from Chihuahuas to Great Danes - through my house sitting and volunteering at the RSPCA kennels. I will happily give your dog plenty of love and attention - I love going for long walks, playing games like tug-of-war, giving lots of pats, snuggling on the couch and I don't mind having dogs sleep on my bed if that's what they're used to.
I'm mature, clean and tidy, and am a non-smoker. I'm not much of a party animal, and prefer quiet nights at home catching up on my favourite TV shows or working on my laptop.
I'm able to provide a police check and references from previous house sits. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions, I'm happy to answer them!...

Our 2 boys love Dan and Dan loves them. We were so pleased with the way he cared for our elderly dogs and our home. Dan took care to make sure all medications were given, let our boys sleep on the bed with him and I think they genuinely missed him when we came home. …

Dan was fantastic with Pinot, our Great Dane puppy (16mo). He took the time to meet Pinot beforehand and ensured he had all of the information needed to take care of her (and our home) while we were away. Being a puppy she is still very energetic and can be a bit challenging at times, but Dan seemed to take it all in his stride! On getting home we had a tidy home and a happy dog, which is all you can ask for! I would not hesitate to ask Dan to sit for us in the future!…

Dan looked after our two dogs, fish and house for a month. The moment he met our dogs they loved him, making him the ideal person to look after our pets. Dan ensured he understood all that we required of him prior to us leaving. The house was clean and tidy when we returned. The beds changes, towels washed. There was nothing for us to do. Dan is the ideal person to entrust the care of our pets and house. We were so impressed by his friendly and quiet nature, but more with the relationship he quickly developed with us. We have no hesitation in recommending Dan to house sit for you. We are so happy we have asked him back, if he is still house sitting next time we are away.…

I won't be hesitating to leave my precious Marley (2 year old Australian Bulldog) with Dan once again. He has now taken care of her on two separate occassions and I found him to be gentle, caring and very well aware of how to care for her. He walked her daily and kept in constant comunication with me. Some people just have an instinct for animals and Dan definitly does.
Cannot reccomend him enough.…
