Who are we?

We are non-smoking, and in our mid-fifties (he's older!). Dave was raised in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, and I was raised in West Virginia. After living out west for a number of years, we are currently in Nova Scotia.

We are university educated. We have raised three children, who have all moved away from home.

We have one tiny, well-behaved fur baby.

Dave is Performance Measurements Consultant for a local school board. Denise is a web designer, homemaker and electronics technician. We ehave njoyed full-time, live-in house and pet sitting in Alberta for about 6 years.

We have great references and can provide a clean, recent, criminal record check. And we have experience with cats, dogs, frogs, fish, and lizards.

Welcome to Housesitter.ca

Hi! We're Dave and Denise, and we are live-in Housesitters. Whether you call us housesitters, house sitters, house carers, house minders, petsitters, or pet sitters, if you are looking for someone housesit while you are away for an extended period of time, we would love to hear from you. You can email us here.

Free free to browse our site. We have tried to supply as much information as possible to help you understand what to expect from The Housesitting Experience.

How Does this Work?

If you are thinking of using a live-in house sitter -- call us! We can talk about:

(a) where your house is located;

(b) when you hope to leave and return home;

(c) any general or specific initial questions you may have;

(d) any special needs you may have of a housesitter.

Then if you and we both want to discuss the possibility of a housesit in more detail, we can arrange a longer phone interview, or a personal meeting.

What should I do to prepare for having my house 'sat'?

Please feel free to Click to email us and we will send you a comprehensive list, broken down by seasons, by interior and exterior.

How long is a house sit?

A house sit can be a weekend, a week, a couple of weeks, a month, 6 months, a year or any other length of time. For many years, we only took long-term, live-in house sitting. However, now we are available for short housesits. If you need to be away for a day, a weekend, or a week or two, give us a call.

Denise is currently seeking a house sit for the fall in Calgary, High River, Okotoks, Airdire, or Red Deer, Alberta.
