Going Away?  Worried about the security of your home and leaving your pets in kennels?

We have the solution.  Relax on your holiday knowing that your home is occupied and in safe hands and that your pets are being lovingly cared for in familiar surroundings.

We are a responsible couple in our mid fifties, we employ no staff and cover all house sitting duties ourselves, ensuring a personal high quality service.  We have been running our pet sitting service based in Horsham for over eleven years and can provide excellent references,.

Our History:

In 2004 Fleur was working as a teaching assistant in a special needs school following her previous career involving 23 years as a full time Nanny (in UK and Canada) entrusted with full responsibility for children and their family's homes. Dave had, since 1982, run (and still runs) a successful Horsham based decorating business, working entirely on word of mouth recommendations with no need for advertising.  Dave, also, had always been entrusted with client's homes.  We were both animal lovers but our love of travel precluded us from having pets of our own.  Dave was often asked to decorate clients' homes whilst they were away for convenience and the security of having somebody around. This soon developed into being asked to feed the cats etc and then being asked to stay over for extra security and Bring Fleur too!  We soon realised we loved the lifestyle of living in different places and enjoying caring for the pets but without the ties of having our own and decided to develop this further.  We started this website and were soon inundated with work.  Dave still often carries out decorating work in our clients' homes whilst we are staying.

We share the pet care between us, however, Fleur is the main carer.  We are both keen walkers.  Dave runs a walking group: http://www.walkhorsham.com/ (where we first met in 1994!).  Dave is capable of dealing with most plumbing, electrical and other household emergencies that may arise.  We are very familiar with alarm systems, electric gates, CCTV etc.

We can be very flexible to accommodate your individual requirements but our standard packages are as follows (see price list):

 

*1.     'Gold'  24 hour cover, this guarantees that your home will never be unoccupied. At least one of us will be home at all times day and night.

 

*2.    'Silver' evening/overnight cover. Times for this can be adapted to suit your needs and we can add lunchtime visits.

With both levels of service we both move in for the whole period.

We provide our own food,mobile phones and laptop so won't need use of your telephone. We will need to use your cooking, washing and sleeping facilities. WiFi access is useful if available. 

We do not have our own pets and your home will be returned in the condition you left it.  We do not smoke.

 All pet care, dog walking etc is included in the services above.

We can also offer an option of combining our house sitting service with redecoration work which can offer you substantial savings on the 24 hour cover as it enables Dave to work whilst covering your property.  Please enquire for decorating quotations.

 

We carry public liability insurance for both yours and our peace of mind.  Our service is discreet, we do not use sign written vehicles, we don't tell people where we are staying and will not invite guests into your property.

 

We also offer the following as stand alone services subject to availability:

Daily dog walking visits and daily cat/small animal visits.

Home security visits (opening and closing curtains, switching on lights, checking for water leaks/power failure etc).  See separate page for details.

 

Please Note: We do get very booked up.  To avoid disappointment we suggest, where possible, that you contact us prior to booking your holiday to give the best chance of us accommodating your requirements .
