Meet the Team

Jenny - Owner

Jenny Hodder is WA born and bred and although she has worn many hats throughout her career, one constant has been her love of, and affinity for, animals. She established House and Pet Sitters after realising her passion for animals could be combined with helping others.

Jenny is extremely proud of the exceptional service she and her team of Sitters have created and feel blessed by the number of special people and pets she has come across over the years.  They truly are her second family, which is why the Star Gallery and Facebook pages hold so many photographs!

Our Team of Sitters

Marilia - Sitter

Hi, I’m Marilia, I started house and pet sitting about March 2017 because I miss my animals from my parent’s farm, back in Brazil.

I love taking care of pets, I always learn a lot from their personality because they are all so different. Like us as human beings, all similar but inside, very different. That’s what makes me passionate about pet sitting. The love I have found in this relationship between animals and us is indescribably beautiful.

Aline - Sitter

Hello, I’m Aline, I grew up with cats and dogs and really love them. I enjoy taking care of pets and giving them lots of cuddles and love.

I started with House and Pet Sitters in April 2017 and believe the role is a great fit for me. The way I relate to looking after someone’s precious pet is that it is my job to make sure they are happy. So, we have fun all the time by going out for walks or just relaxing under a tree. Simple things make me feel extremely happy.

Ana - Sitter

Hello, I’m Ana, I’ve been living in Australia as student since March 2016. I have always had pets. When I was a little child my parents gave me a cat and I had a dog that I looked after too, I loved it!  I’ve had many experiences with pets all my life, living with me and my family. Since I came to Australia I haven’t had a pet and I have missed this contact. That’s why I’m a House and Pet Sitters team member, I really appreciate being able to look after pets and help people. My first house and pet sitter experience in Australia was January 2017 and it was lovely. Being a sitter has taught me how important it is to be kind and patient with pets. When they don’t know you it is fundamental to follow all their routines. I’m gentle with animals and respect them and in return the families trust me to stay at the houses with their precious pets.

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 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!

Jesse and Sally - Sitters

We both love animals! They’ve been a big part of both of our lives, so we really enjoy meeting new furry friends and spending time with them. We also enjoy being able to experience the city from different perspectives. We have been house sitting casually for the past two years but have been with ‘House and Pet Sitters’ since May 2017.

Between us, we have ample experience in caretaking properties, houses, and pets. We pride ourselves on our reliability and cleanliness. We’re both very versatile and adaptable, so easily adjust to personalities, needs of animals and requests of owners.

It is our mission to make your pet and property feel as loved and secure as possible in your absence, to maximise your peace of mind and enjoyment whilst away.

Talita and Ruda - Sitters

We are passionate about animals and enjoy the opportunity to live in different houses and neighbourhoods. We started house and pet sitting in June 2017.

House and pet sitting is perfect for us especially being able to live with, love and care for the animals – it helps us not miss our puppy, who could not come with us from Brazil.

We are very responsible and friendly and we have the greatest love and care for all the animals we take care of!

Andrea - Sitter

I love cats and dogs as well as other animals and have always had pets in my life.

I am from Chile and have been studying and travelling to parts of Australia since September 2014.

I am based in Perth and often work remotely but I really enjoy keeping pets company for as long as possible.

I pride myself on being an honest and gentle person and I love having pets around me.

Caio - Sitter

After spending most my childhood taking care of all types of animals on a family farm in Brazil, I decided to use my experience to improve myself while exploring Perth.

I started house and pet sitting in March 2017. This great company gave me the opportunity I needed to do what I love.

I am a very easy going​ person who is passionate about pets and travel.

Nuria and Martial - Sitters

We both grew up with animals back home so, house and pet sitting is a way we feel close to them even when we are away from home. We started house and pet sitting in Perth in May 2017.

It has been such a great experience for us to get to know different locations in Perth as well as new pets and people.

We are very laid-back couple and we do love pets and travelling.

Sarah - Sitter

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.

Adrian - Sitter

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.

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.

Relax and enjoy your holiday!
Jenny
