    I wanted to send you a quick email as I have recently returned from my trip. I had Sarah look after my baby girl Jenna and I wanted to let you know how fantastic she was. The house was clean and well looked after and she was so thoughtful as to leave me a thank you card, chocolate, milk in the fridge and even made me some origami.  Jenna of course was very happy to see me, but I can tell she was comfortable with Sarah and wasn’t stressed. I will be recommending your company from now on to all the clients who ask about pet sitting at the vet clinic I work at.  I am now comfortable to say there really is a company out there you can trust with your pets and your house while enjoying a holiday. Thanks for everything.

    House was immaculate, dogs had been exercised and medication to the old dog had been exactly as if we had done it ourselves, they even visited the vet and obtained more. Absolutely great.

You did a fantastic job with them all and I’m so pleased we had you. With poor Lulu passing, an unpleasant time for you and us, you handled it with dignity and love. Lily and Tinka looked beautiful after their makeover. Also, thank you so much for the flowers and chocolates. We had not noticed them until you had left. It was our first time using House and Pet Sitters and were understandably nervous. Now, we would always use this service in the future with complete confidence. Thank you once again

Our pets got really well looked after by a great couple and we were updated regularly, which was reassuring for us while being on holiday. We returned to well-kept animals and a neat & tidy home, which was fantastic.
    I have already recommended Jenny to other folk who will be needing house/pet sitters and I would not hesitate to utilise House and Pet Sitters in the future.  Top service!

    Trish was an excellent house sitter. She sent me through pictures daily of their walk which gave me peace of mind that my best friends were in great hands and getting well looked after. The house was clean and tidy and I will be requesting Trish when I go away again.

We would highly recommend this service and have done to many family and friends.

    Dear Jenny,
    Myself and my partner Laura send this email with great pleasure. Your sitter Sarah is certainly one in a million! We returned today from our 3 week trip to the UK where we got married to a very happy dog, an impeccably tidy house and lovely presents.
    Sarah regularly sent entertaining and loving emails regularly, regarding our dog Elliott’s well-being and adventures and left us completely at ease whilst away. We returned today and the house was spotless, mail arranged, food in the fridge, Elliott pleased to see us and a lovely framed picture of Elliott dressed up as if he had attended our wedding day. It was truly a personal touch.
    We would recommend her highly and on our first dog walk back, we came to find that our friends that she met on her usual walk hold her in high regard too and had nothing but pleasant things to say about her.
    She has done your service proud and we will definitely be using you again in the future.
    Many Thanks,
    Marcus and Laura

    Matt - Sitter

    I’m Matt and I’m from New Zealand. When I first moved to Perth I wanted to get a flat and dog. I happened to stumble upon an ad whilst looking for a job and house and thought ‘I could do this for a bit till I sort a place of my own’. My first sit was with two amazing dogs and a cat. By the end of the sit I was in love with them and felt so happy, giving the owners peace of mind knowing their house was safe and pets were having a great time. I had to do another sit. That was October 2015 and I’m still at it and love every minute of it.

    Pat and Don - Sitters

    We first housesat for a friend of ours who went overseas and liked it so much we approached Jenny at House and Pet Sitters about being regular sitters. That was December 2014 and the rest is history.

    Being HPS sitter is great for a number of reasons, firstly, Jenny is ‘mint’ and the clients are fabulous people. Add the pets and bingo, you have a winner. We find that if you treat the people, their pets and house as your own, you can’t go very far wrong.

    The photo is Pat with Obama and Rocky, these full brothers have just turned seven – where’s Don you ask, well he took the photo claiming a photo of him would send everything blank – lol.

    I’m a self-employed Repetiteur (how many people know what that is?) I have been a HPS sitter since January 2015.

    I enjoy being of service to people; the companionship of their pets and the interactions with other dog owners on walks. The variety of living in different places and exploring different areas also appeals to me.

    Xavier - Sitter

    My name is Xavier, I relocated to Perth from Melbourne at the start of 2016 in order to make a change.

    I began House and Pet sitting shortly after. I love animals and have always had pets in my life, so it is a perfect lifestyle. It is an honour to be invited in to a persons’ home and to look after the very important animals in their lives. 

    I was brought up very house proud and enjoy looking after the client’s home and caring for their pets.

    I have developed a great rapport with the clients and pets during my sits and respect the specific needs of each pet.

    I really like animals so when the opportunity came along to be able to have (however temporarily) a pet, I jumped at the chance.

    I have been a HPS sitter since April 2015. I enjoy the satisfaction of knowing pets are the primary focus of care and attention, and thus happier. It’s wonderful to have someone who’s always happy to see you.

    Plus, I get to meet new people/animals and being a sitter expands my knowledge of other areas of Perth.

    Hi from London (April 2016), where I’m about to start a housesit in Ealing with a dog and 2 cats.
    My housesitting journey started in July 2014 because my house was rented out and I still needed to be coming and going from Perth. I started with House and Pet Sitters and realised it could be a great way to travel, which it has proved to be.
    Over the past ‘almost’ two years I have housesat not only in Perth, but in the UK, Greece and New Zealand.
    For me it has been a fantastic way to travel and meet amazing people (and animals too!) I am still in contact with some folk, who are now friends. I have just housesat for a second time for families in Greece and London.
    This photo was taken at the weekend in Yorkshire Dales when staying with relatives (I should have had my tongue out too!!)

    Jan - Sitter

    I began house/pet sitting December 2015 and my first experience was wonderful – looking after a very large, energetic puppy. I returned unexpectedly to Australia from volunteering in Fiji and as my home was being rented I found myself relying on the hospitality of friends and family. I knew about house/pet sitting, looked up possibilities on Gumtree, contacted Jenny and have had a wonderful time looking after beautiful homes and gorgeous well cared for pets.
    Each pet has its own personality and I love getting to know them. Being “granted” a quarter of the bed by a beautiful poodle (who occupied the other three quarters) was quite amusing as she “talked” in her sleep and we had some interesting nights.
    I find the home/pet owners to be extremely caring and considerate and to date I have felt very welcome and appreciated as we discuss their various requirements for their home and furry babies.

    Denize & Felipe - Sitters

    We both had lovely dogs and cats back home, so we really miss our pets. We feel they are part of our families and also how great is the environment when they are around?
    We have been doing house and pet sitting in WA since October 2015. We really love animals. It is priceless to know we have this opportunity with House and Pet Sitters to take care of them around Western Australia. As well as getting to know different areas around Perth. We have been meeting great people and families around, so it has been such a great experience for us!
