“I needed someone to mind my dog at quite short notice because something unforeseen came up for my usual dog-sitters at the last minute. I came across House Sitting Tasmania through a link from another Facebook page (Kimberley’s Pet Taxi) and a couple of emails and 24 hours later I was delighted that Andrew and Karen made contact, saying they were willing and available to house and dog sit for a short period of time with nearly no notice!

What followed was a smooth process, thanks to Karen and Andrew’s great organisation skills and thoroughness. They sent me some documentation explaining clearly what they offered and what they needed me to do, and most importantly asking all the right questions about my pooch, and the house and the logistics of everything.

Karen and Andrew were happy to come to the house to meet with me beforehand and made me feel really confident that everything was under control and that all care would be taken.

While I was away, Karen and Andrew sent me pictures of my little dog having a great time out walking – just enough communication to put my mind at ease and allow me to really enjoy my break.

When I arrived home the house was gleaming! Everything in its place and one happy little doggie!

I highly recommend Andrew and Karen to anyone needing caring, expert house-sitters. They are amazing communicators, obviously have an affinity with pets and intuitively understand the needs of the home-owner. Lovely people! I am very pleased and grateful to have been linked with them. I hope they will come back to look after my home and dog if they are available next time I am away.”
