“Peter and his wife, Tracy looked after our 2 dogs for us, a Great Dane and Luc, a puppy only a few weeks old. We were very impressed with the caring, considerate and trustworthy approach which they demonstrated in respect of the dogs and the home environment. We have no hesitation in recommending them as pet and house sitters. “

“Peter and Tracy were so kind to housesit for us while we were on our honeymoon and we are so thankful to have found them! They provided us with updates and pictures and we returned to a dazzlingly clean home and a very happy kitty! (as well as a beautifully decorated pumpkin and a wild rice souvenir from Minnesota :)) I would happily recommend them to any other family looking for wonderful companions for their furry family members while they are away!! Thanks again you two 🙂

“Peter and Tracy are wonderful. We couldn’t be happier and consider ourselves extremely lucky to have found them. They were so organized – they made a schedule for everything that needed to be done from watering the plants to feeding and medicating the cats and bringing in the mail. They treated our home as if it were their own; the place was spotless when we got back. If you have the chance to get them to sit for you, grab it. We can only hope that they’re available the next time we vacation. Thank you Peter and Tracy. “

“Peter & Tracy were truly extraordinary house-sitters. The house was impeccable when we returned, the garden/landscaping all well watered & thriving, the chickens… well, still being chickens & all accounted for, and most importantly, our beloved black lab obviously received the nurturing and kind attention on which she also thrives.
We consider Peter & Tracey to be not just remarkable house-sitters, but good friends and kindred spirits. “

“I am so pleased to have met Tracy & Peter. They are our first house sitters ever, and they have definitely set our expectation bar high for all future house sitters. They were thorough and quick to reply when communicating, and really went the extra mile to to accommodate the needs of our cat and our home, and sent little snapshots of the day (which I really appreciated!). They left the house very clean and tidy and we came back to a thriving cat. Needless to say, Tracy & Peter are great house sitters. I reckon it may be difficult to come across house sitters like them!”

“Peter and Tracy met every expectation during this six week housesitting experience. I can highly recommend them. My two cats, Hugo and Cinderfella, looked well fed and content. My house and garden were tidy and well tended. But the crowning moment was my return home with my sister and four of her friends after a six week sojourn to a lovely wine and cheese welcome. Peter and Tracy will be a hard act for anyone to follow.”

Peter and Tracy were fantastic house sitters. Far exceeding our expectations. The animals loved them. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They were comfortable looking after horses, dogs, chickens and our cat. No job was too much!”

“Peter & Tracy are the most kind, competent & committed housesitters that you could ever wish for. My pets were treated royally, as was my home. Their combined experience shone through with everything being perfect on my return. They are lovely people & have a calm & quiet manner, which all of my family, especially my four-legged gang, appreciated, they are implicitly trustworthy & I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

They took very good care of her, followed my instructions as to feeding and walking and care of plants , left my home spotless and are very trustworthy and responsible people who take their job seriously and want to make a good impression.. Very nice people too! I would highly recommend them!!”

“Tracy and Peter stayed at our house in Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico, for 21 days. We have two spoiled cats that were very happy with Peter and Tracy. Peter and Tracy took great care of our home. We also have a fish pond and they took great care of the pond and the fish. When we returned the house was spotless, sheets and towels clean and dishes washed. I would not hesitate to ask them to return. “

“Peter and Tracy stayed at our home on three different occasions and were the perfect guests and sitters. They were very responsible and respectful of us and our home and we would highly recommend them as house sitters.”

“Peter and Tracy took wonderful care of our home and pets while we were away on our honeymoon. We felt very at ease leaving, knowing that everything back at home was being looked after. Upon retuning to our home it was evident how well our pets had been looked after and what great care had been taken of our home. It was so comforting to be able to leave our dogs at home where they could be looked after instead of putting them in a kennel.. Thank you so much Peter and Tracy!”
