Meet the McNomads
Peter and Tracy met in Mexico while studying Spanish and have been The McNomads ever since.
Born in rural Australia, Peter emmigrated to the U.S. to fill a need for pediatric specialists.
Tracy is Minnesota born, Texas-raised, and worked in the travel industry for two decades.
Now retired from medical and corporate careers, they’ve had sits across the U.S. and U.K., Europe, Asia, Australia and Mexico caring for dogs, cats, horses, cows, sheep, chickens, guinea pigs, birds, and a housetrained pig, Maple Bacon. What’s next?
We bring an ethos of responsibility and caring to housesitting. We believe that by putting you and your pets’ needs first, our needs will be met as well.
Knowing we are keeping pets happy when separated from family makes us feel happy.
Our goal is to minimize stress for pets (and people) by allowing them to stay in familiar surroundings and maintain their usual routines.
We work hard to earn the glowing reviews you see here because we truly care.
We rely on our life experience to manage assignments.
Peter was raised on a farm in Australia where he cared for sheep, cattle, pigs, and the many dogs on the farm. A lifelong career in medicine is another useful experience Peter brings to every assignment.
Tracy also has a lifetime of experience with dogs and horses. She co-owned a residential construction company, held corporate management positions and now runs a boutique design agency.
