Responsible couple seeking quality time with pets

Seddon, VIC

We are a responsible couple, both animal-lovers but currently can't have any pets of our own. Both of us grew up with cats and dogs.

We both have experience pet-sitting, as well as house-sitting. We are experienced with dogs of all sizes from French Bulldogs to German Shepherds. We both love the outdoors, so really enjoy taking dogs for regular walks.

Gretel is a ranger/guide at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne Su-Th 9-5 and Nastassja works an office job in the city M-F, 9-5.

About This Listing

Our unit is on the ground floor and has a small, fenced backyard, which your pets would have access to at all times. However, we would keep them inside during the night. There is a park nearby and plenty of walking tracks around our house to walk dogs.

We are also open to housesitting jobs, where we can look after your pets in their own space so they can be comfortable. We would need to be able to get to work easily still. Of course we will respect your property and keep it clean/tidy.

Many thanks to Gretel & Nastassja for taking great care with Jessie & Maddie whilst we were gone. Not only did we come home to happy pets (even thought Maddie hid for most of the time) the house was immaculate & they had even done the washing....... We highly recommend the girls to take care of your furry friends & have no hestation in recommending them to anyone. They are fabulous ladies & we wll be back......Maddie has not stopped telling us about it

Would not hesitate to use Gretel and Natassja again. Great communication, photo updates while I was away, house was left clean and tidy. Cat was happy and healthy. An absolute pleasure.

Gretel and Nastassja were great. They were very open with communication both pre-stay and during the stay as well as sending photos of Hugo and about during his stay there. Their property was great for Hugo as it had a little outdoor balcony and was close to the Merri Creek for walks. Will definitely be happy bringing Hugo back here in the future

Gretel was available at short notice to walk and feed our Kelpie, Ollie. Communication was excellent and sounds like Ollie had a great time at one of his favourite parks. She kept in touch and sent a couple of photos. I would happily book Gretel again!

I am very happy, Missy was happy and well cared for. So good to know we can leave her in good/safe hands. I think Missy is looking forward to next Sunday already.

Gretel and Stars are amazing pet sitters. My dog Harry is regularly looked after by them. The way Harry gets excited when he realises we are going to their house, is a testament to how well he is looked after. Harry is now an older dog, as he has aged his care needs have changed. They have been able to accomodate this very easily. It's fantastic to know when I can't take him with me Harry is looked after so well.

Gretel is great with our cats. When we come home again they are well cared for and in good condition. When my wife and I want photos Gretel is happy to send them on her next visit :) Personable and does what she says she will do. Took care of our boys, (Minty and Not Angus,) a few times now. Will book with Gretel next time we go away! ???? ???? ???? ???? ????
