Hi there everyone.
My husband Ian and I have been THS members since late 2018 as sitters. We love it and it has made our retirement. Up to date we have done 19 sits and have 5 lined up so far for 2023. The first is in March in Northend UK near Henley on Thames, then Spain and Portugal. Then in May we are off to Poole, Dorset and then the Chilterns, Buckinghamshire UK. Phew! That’s our first trip. Trip 2 in September we are off to Christchurch in the New Forest and Bournemouth on the English Rivierera. Lots of travel.
We have lived in Eldorado near Santa Fe since 1997 and have been invited to do local sits for cats, a pit bull and goldendoodle and horses. We are also busy being volunteers with a local shelter walking and fostering dogs besides looking after our friends and neighbours pets. So, we are always getting our dog fix since our 2 darling goldies passed several years ago.
Welcome! I adore new Mexico. Your travels sound wonderful. I too, have made it my semi-retired life as I continue to work seasonally in Alaska. So far i love it! Hoping to do my first international later in the yearm
Lovely to see you’re here on the forum it was so nice to meet you and Ian in person this winter in Santa Fe. Please do come back and share photos of those sits you’ve got lined up this Spring/Summer. I’d love to see all the adorable pets you’ll be taking care of.
Great to read your post!
Any advice on how to co-ordinate house sits?
I am due to visit Boston Mass this spring and would love to house/ pet sit but obviously I can’t find one that covers the whole trip.
What do you do to cover gaps in your “sits”?
