• Perks of being a full time pet sitter

      When we began pet sitting full time in 2018, travelling all over the U.K. and beyond, we could never have imagined all the experiences we would have with this lifestyle. Beyond the obvious perks like travelling to new places, living rent free, and spending time together, our favourite parts of being nomadic house sitters are […]

    • Visiting dog friendly cafes in Hove

      Before we began our full time house sitting lifestyle, we spent a year renting a flat in the centre of Brighton. Back then, Chris was spending his weekdays working at a desk 9-5 as a web developer, while I worked on my Etsy shop in our conservatory-turned-studio at home. We spent our weekends recovering from […]

    • Riding the fastest zip line in the world – Velocity 2 at Penrhyn Quarry, Wales

      Do you ever book tickets for something that seems so far away that you almost don’t think it will ever happen? That was us back in March 2020 when we took advantage of a 2 for 1 offer from Zip World, and snapped up our tickets. Our full time house sitting lifestyle was temporarily on […]

    • Dog walking in Holkham and Wells, Norfolk

      Each year since we began house sitting in 2018, we’ve booked in for an annual sit at a cottage in Norfolk. We’re now firm friends with the home owner and her pooches, though over time older dogs have passed on and new arrivals have joined the family. Each time we come to house sit in […]

    • 48 hours in the Cotswolds

      During our rare gaps between house sitting assignments, we absolutely LOVE exploring! With no house or pet responsibilities, we go all-in on seeing as much of a new place as we can and enjoying some time just the two of us. The Cotswolds is one of those places that has absolutely boomed in popularity in […]

    • Dicky Bag review: A must-have for walkies!

      Anyone walking a dog in the countryside can attest – there’s never a bin when you need one! We’ve carried full poo bags for MILES over the years on our dog walks, because there simply aren’t bins up mountains, deep in forests, or on rolling moorland. Don’t get us wrong – it would be a […]

    • Our experience at Dog Fest 2021

      If you’re as obsessed with dogs as we are, the idea of a festival for dogs will sound like your idea of HEAVEN! We were honoured to receive an invitation to Dog Fest as ambassadors for Borrow My Doggy, who gifted us tickets to Dog Fest North at Tatton Park, Cheshire. At the time of […]

    • Lake District Cabin life: Our stay at Hinterlandes

      It’s no secret that we LOVE a quirky stay! One of the best parts of house sitting is getting to experience life in all kinds of homes, and when we’re not house sitting, we enjoy finding the kookiest places to spend our time. From Airstreams and yurts to châteaus and shepherds huts, we’ve enjoyed our […]

    • Creating a successful pet sitter profile

      House and pet sitting has really taken off in recent years, especially since the Covid pandemic resulted in thousands of people getting ‘lockdown puppies’. As travel opens up again, these new pet owners are turning to live-in pet sitters to care for their animals while they’re away, instead of putting their pooches in kennels. House […]
