It is a leap of faith having a stranger come to stay in your house and look after your beloved pet…..but I can honestly say that Michelle and her dog Eddie have been superb housesitters. My rural location and ‘rustico’ farmhouse throws up a lot of challenges….but Michelle coped with any issues in her stride, she is self reliant, problem solving, intelligent and practical. She is very good at communicating and sent regular updates and photos of my dog, so I did not have a moment’s worry. When I returned after nearly 3 months, not only was my house and dog in better shape than when I left them, she had also had gone to the trouble of buying new wine glasses….(among other things!) ..for the new friends she said she had made for me! She went out of her way to introduce herself to my neighbours and friends and make herself a part of the local fabric. She came with her dog Eddy who instantly made friends with my dog and is a very gentle easy going pooch. I have no hesitation in recommending her to look after your house and pets.
