Hello from England, UK!

Hi everyone! We’re Chris and Suze from the UK and we’ve been full time housesitters since January 2018.

Since we started we’ve completed over 60 housesits (mostly in the UK, but some in Europe) and looked after so many different kinds of pets. From adorable miniature Pugs to Great Danes that think they are lap dogs! We’ve also cared for chickens, pigs, ducks, sheep, lizards, parrots and even herds of alpacas!

We love to travel, and Trusted Housesitters has been great for us to visit new places and live like locals! We’ve been sharing our adventures on Instagram (@ChrisAndSuzeGoWalkies) since we started and already recognise a few familiar faces here! We’ve also recently started blogging about our adventures and writing travel tips about why full time housesitting is a great lifestyle - if you are interested you can check out our website!

We’d love to hear from you guys too - we love connecting with other housesitters so tell us all about your favourite sits, pets or places! :slight_smile:

Welcome @ChrisAndSuzeGoWalkies , I’ve been to your blog. With @Jon-JWalking, you’re really good. I’d love to make one blog too. Yours are inspiring, very different.

I think it’s a very good idea to show owners photos, to explain and to be able to show your experience increases on the blog

I’m impressed by the amount of animals you’ve looked after. So young and already such an experience ! I would love to be 30 years younger.

Hi! I just replied to the email you sent us, thank you so much!
I’m so proud of Chris as not only did he build our website for our blog, he is also an incredible photographer so we can send lots of amazing photos of pets to their owners!
We feel very lucky to have started our journey in our 20s, but it’s never too late to go on an epic adventure! We hope you can plan some amazing trips post-covid xx
