It's quite a thing to leave your beloved pet and home in the hands of a stranger. I was a continuous house sitter 2012-2019 in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane and even the UK. I know and love pets!
In 2021 I was travelling solo house sitting through NSW. For Jan-May 2022 I am looking to be in Canberra. I am single, with no pets or kids.
I am home full time, with my own car. I'd describe myself as sensible, kind and thorough, and a solid communicator.
I house sit with pets that are happy and well adjusted emotionally, generally from one year and older. I love and appreciate living in quality home environments. I always clean right before I leave and ask you to please do the same for my arrival.
If you are considering booking me, please send me a message with a couple of pics of your pets and home so I can gain a feel for where I might be living. In the first instance I prefer sits longer than one week, but we can discuss that.
Dog walks are included in your booking. If your dog likes car and cafe outings, then great!
For your additional peace of mind please ask me for a PDF of my references (I joined this site in Jan 2019 so they aren't all logged on this site). Here's some below.
(NOTE: 2020 and until March 2021 I was living with Pete in Queanbeyan, where we hosted dogs, hence the reviews on Mad Paws. I am now single and ONLY available for pet sitting, where I live in the pets' home).
If you like the sounds of me, then I'd love to hear from you.

"Thank you so much Beth for looking after our fur babies. We have no words to thank you the way you took care of them. Beth is excellent in her communications and very friendly and most importantly pet loving person. when we returned out fur babies had no stress and they were missing Beth very much. Thank you so much for your wonderfull photography and we love the pictures of our babies you have taken. We would love to have her back at our place and we are very sure Sid and Archie would be delighted to be with you again."

"Hi Beth, I cannot thank you enough for leaving the flat so beautiful…I have never seen a house sitter leave it in such a beautiful state. The animals are absolutely fine. Thank you for looking after all of our fur babies and for minding the flat. Are you free in July perhaps and also Christmas next year??"

"Just arrived home. Beth has left our house better then when we left and our 2 very old dogs seem very happy . Beth was very attentive to their needs which is our main priority. We are regular house and pet sitter users and Beth is amongst the best we have had. Would highly recommend."

"Beth was a great housesitter, friendly, intelligent, capable and tidy. She came by before I went away and I showed her around the building and explained things, so that I felt quite comfortable leaving her in charge of my cat, Coco. She is an excellent communicator, sending me updates and a photo of Coco while I was away. I arrived home to a beautifully clean, tidy apartment, with fresh flowers on the dining table. Coco said hello to me and then went outside to sit in the garden quite happily. She wasn't at all stressed. I would happily recommend Beth as a trusted housesitter, and hope to invite her back in the future."
