A Harty Adventure

Caring, reliable, mature couple, fully vaccinated and wanting to travel & enjoy animal company. We have been pet sitting since 2018, through Trusted House Sitters in the UK (you can check out our reviews on the website by searching under Plymouth, UK - and have over 40, 5 star reviews. We starred full time pet sitting May 22 and have been all around the UK and recently in NZ and Australia. We are looking to petsit in the States in 2024.
We are a mature couple with lots of life experience. We have encountered lightening strikes and cyclones on our sits, so we know what to do in an emergency! We are friendly, easy going with a sense of humour. We enjoy walking, kayaking and dancing. Boggles is good with DIY skills, electrics, fixing cars, etc so is good in case of emergencies. Jill is pretty good with gardening skills and, although might not know all the plants in the garden, certainly knows how to keep a house clean & tidy. We love animals of all kinds. We have had quite a lot of experience now, with different kinds of pets and farm animals. We had a cat called Wookie, who was a prolific hunter so we are used to picking up remains & catching live mice! For our first house sit in Wales, we looked after two pigs (a very large Suffolk sow and a smaller Kune Kune pig), two horses, 4 cats, 2 Guinea pigs and some tropical fish - quite a menagerie but great fun and we loved it! Since then we have also cared for Labradors, Springer Spaniels, Retrievers, Leonbergers, Beagles, Lurchers, Poodles & several rescue dogs. Dog walks on the beach are the best. We have lots of experience with cats too, including Siamese/Burmese. We are used to administering medication to cats & dogs. We also have experience with farm animals including chickens, runner ducks (hilarious), sheep, pigs, goats, horses, donkeys, rheas and Alpacas! We have mucked out hens, goats and donkeys, so not afraid of hard work and aware of the realities of having farm animals. We have also looked after smaller animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits and fish.
If you would like to speak to us in person we are very happy to WhatsApp or Skype at a time that suits you or to answer any questions you might have via this website. We are UK based so there may be a short delay in answering due to time differences, depending on when you message.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Jill & Boggles (His real name is Brian but everyone calls him Boggles...if you want to know why get in touch!)
