Two pet-adoring and reliable cancer researchers

Patonga, NSW

Hi, we are Helen (44) and Klaartje (39), both cancer researchers who absolutely adore animals and love to provide a safe and caring home for your pets while you are away. We will love and take care of your pets as if they are our own. We find it very important that you come back home to a happy and relaxed pet and we thus adjust our routine and lifestyle to what your fur babies require. Love to go for a run with a Kelpie, but also love to Netflix and chill with a senior cat on the couch.


About This Listing

We live in a detached 3-bedroom home with a large fenced deck/balcony. For their safety, pets will be kept inside while we are away. Pets will sleep indoors in the living area and when we are at home they will have free access to the entire house, indoor and outdoor space. We live close to the river in Ryde where you can walk for hours so dogs will get plenty of exercise.

Helen was a 10/10 dog carer and house sitter. I received photos and updates every day and returned to an immaculate house and very happy fur babies. Thank you!

Klaartje and Helen looked after our two cats for 6 weeks. WONDERFUL JOB. The cats were unstressed and happy. One cat is deaf and has skin allergies and needed extra attention. We could not of asked for a better couple to look after our boys. They stayed at our house and also looked after the yard/flowers/plants. We came home to a very clean house, even the refrigerator! And thoughtful enough to have a little milk for us for coffee / tea on arrival home. We would HIGHLY recommend this couple as reliable and trustworthy.

The girls were amazing! The dogs absolutely loved them and I had total confidence in them coming and walking the dogs whilst I was away and my mum was in surgery. Extremely happy with their service and would gladly book with them again

Helen and Klaartje house sat our house and four fur babies over the christmas and new year period. I am 100% sure i came home to a house cleaner than when i left it and our fur babies ( four dogs ) looked like they had been on a holiday themselves! The girls looked after the house and dogs impeccably, we got daily updates of how everyone was doing and to make their lives even more challenging one of our dogs was pregnant. The care and love they showed the dogs was incredible, they looked after them as if they were their own. The house was left immaculate & the yard / plants were happy and healthy. The communication throughout the entire process was fantastic and we already have them on speed dial for when we are next going away and need house sitters. Thank you so much for looking after our home and our fur babies, you made our holiday so much more relaxed and enjoyable knowing they were in the care of such loving and caring hands. Cannot recommend enough!

I happily recommend Helen and Klaartje for any house/pet sitting. They cared for my home and elderly cat for two weeks. We're very kind, considerate and respectful. My cat enjoyed their company and was relaxed and settled on my return home.

Helen and K are absolutely wonderful! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending or referring them to pet parents. They are very responsible, and showed keen interest in Maya and Jiemba's health, their activities, everything about them that they needed to know while the two were in their care. The dogs came back genuinely happy, and I would have to say it was so awesome of them to continue practicing a new trick I was trying to teach Jiemba - he came home a close to expert of doing the "paw". I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful care and love that you extended to Maya and Jiemba.
