Pet Depression and Separation Anxiety

Pets develop emotional bonds to their human owners and when separated from them, pets may suffer from depression and separation anxiety. There are times when it becomes necessary to be separated from a pet such as when having to be hospitalized or taking a vacation. As much as we may hate being away from a beloved pet, it may actually be a more stressful experience for the animal.

We are going away from 2 August until at least 16 September or maybe a week or so later. We have a poodle and two young cats. Garden will need minimal care at that time of year. Most importantly house sitter must be an animal lover. A couple or mature single preferred.

Dunsborough is a gorgeous town on the coast of SW West Australia. We have a 5 acre property 5 minutes out of the town of Dunsborough. We have a dog (very loving German Short haired pointer) and a pink and grey galah that need looking after and loving while we are away for 8 weeks. We have a fully heated 15 metre lap pool on the property and lovely low maintenance gardens. The house has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms + study with a large living kitchen central zone. The property is very peaceful and surrounded by native bush and wild birds - it is a little piece of paradise. This area has lots of wonderful beaches and great walking tracks, fantastic wineries and restaurants and a large expanse of virgin bush around the cape. The climate is warm in summer and mild winters.

Yeppoon Sunhhine Coast Queensland house sit filled

We seem to have found the ideal house-sitters for our needs. Thank you so much for your excellent service. This is the second time we have used your site and are very impressed Thank you Jean UserName = aljean

We have a comfortable fully airconditioned 3 bedroom modern lowset brick home with salt water swimming pool. The time we wish to be away can be very hot, therefore anyone who does not like the heat should not apply. We also have a loveable very friendly female border collie dog, who needs her daily walk and lots of TLC. Our requirements are that you should maintain our home and garden,ie mowing grass and watering plants. the garden is easily maintained with sprinkler systems. (Although water restrictions apply at the moment) We would also require our swimming pool to be maintained. Therefore we would prefer someone who is experienced in this regard. We also would prefer non smokers. Yeppoon is a small town on the coast about 40 klms from Rockhampton. Ferries to Great Keppel Island are about 5 klms away. Byfield National Park is to the north about 30 klms. Our home is not far from the beach, or shops. It is a quiet area and we have good neighbours. There is room in the garage to park a car.

Sitter Countryspace seeks clarification

Wow, this is wonderful, so many sits and so many wonderful places, I can hardly get my head around it all, what a wonderful life I will be leading.

I have found a sit up until mid November, 2006 and have changed my resume to let people know, but would like to stay open to book sits for the future is this the way to go or do i UNSCRIBE for a certain period and then re activate. Wonderful, all the places sound great Jan (countryspace)

Hi Jan (countryspace)

Great news about your sit. Better to leave your profile active and just update your availability date so you are ready for the next one. Many homeowners look well ahead.

House sitters wunjuli pays off some bills and see more of Australia

I just wanted to say what an wonderful service this site provides for those choosing to save money while taking care of other peoples homes/pets and or property.

Since registering some months ago and upgrading to Gold membership my partner and I have been able to relocate ourselves from Melbourne Victoria to a four month house/pet stint in Deception Bay,QLD which will be finishing in early April.

As a result of this particular housesitting job we have been able to pay off a few debts and boost our savings account not to mention meet some lovely people and see more of this great country.

We have secured ourselves another house/pet minding job further north in Hervey Bay which is a truly beautiful region as we discovered when we drove up to meet with the couple who placed the advertisement in

I would like to offer up a heartfelt Thank You to Housecarers for making it possible for us to see more of Australia while saving money for our own place, without you this wouldn't have been possible. 10/10 from us! Thank You. "wunjuli"

Our home is on Long Beach Island, a resort area at the New Jersey seashore, a few steps to the ocean. The ocean in September is wonderful. The chief requirement is loving care for our two dogs, a cockapoo and a cocker(field)spaniel. House has all amenities and wonderful bay views.

House sit filled:

Looking for a responsible non-smoker to care for our two cats and do general yard maintenance (mowing) and light houskeeping (vacuuming excessing cat hair!) while we are away. We have a small, unassuming, two bedroom bungalow in Erlanger, Kentucky, just across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio. Our two cats are indoor cats, one requires copious amounts of affection, the other demands to be left alone. We do NOT have a land line telephone so having your own cell is a plus.
