Sharon recently sat for our 14 year old lab Bobby from the 13th February to the 3rd March 2019. Sharon is has a very pleasant and welcoming personality and bonded with Bobby as soon as she met him, which means we can go away content knowing he will settle. Bobby was happy and healthy when we returned he clearly enjoyed Sharon’s company. The house was kept clean and tidy and we would certainly welcome Sharon back any time and would strongly recommend Sharon to any future housesit. Kim, Kate and Bobby, Shoreham, UK 02-03/19

Sharon also took great care with the house and left us a fantastic casserole upon our return. I would gladly have Sharon back and would highly recommend her for any future pet sit.

Belinda in England: Sharon was a delight from start to finish … and adventurous, independent and charming lady. I was away for two weeks and when I returned the house was immaculate and most importantly Dotty and Nelly were happy and looked as if they had been beautifully cared for. I would not hesitate to recommend Sharon to anyone who wants a really nice person who will care for their pets and home as their own. I hope she will come back!!! Dorking, UK 01/19

Laura in Santa Fe, NM wrote in July 2018: Sharon stayed at my home and took loving care of my house and my beloved Basset, Uma. Sharon is friendly, conscientious, meticulous, and completely trustworthy. I can’t say enough good things about her and would invite her again in a heartbeat! Terrific house-sitter!

She is an excellent communicator and a thorough and responsible caretaker. Our house was in perfect shape when we returned and the animals were very happy. We recommend her without reservation and would love to have her back. Thank you Sharon!

This was Sharon’s second time to house and pet sit for us, and nothing told us how great of a job she did the first time as how happy our pups were to see her. She settled right back in with our little ones like she never left. When one of our pups started having some health concerns while we were away, she was sure to let us know. She even texted after she was gone to check on him. We would definitely recommend her as a sitter to others and would love to have her sit for us again.

Sharon was very easy to communicate with before her arrival and during her stay. She was kind enough to send us pictures of our little ones and take them out for regular walks. She made sure to spend some time with them before we left, so they were comfortable with her before being alone with her. When we got home, she had fresh flowers in the kitchen and had washed linens and folded our towels that had been in the dryer. I cannot say enough good things about her. We really enjoyed getting to talk with her and could tell our babies were very well taken care of. We highly recommend her and would love to have her sit for us again.

Sharon was just wonderful! We communicated ahead of time, and she arrived as planned. She was completely self-sufficient and settled in quickly. She went above and beyond helping me with chores as I was getting ready to leave town. She fed our cats, checked the mail and other things we asked her to keep an eye on. She left the apartment where she stayed immaculate. We highly recommend her and would love to have her back in the future.

John in Vancouver, WA wrote on February 2017-Sharon house sat for us for about 2 ½ weeks in January 2017. Our home was so well taken care of! Sharon was very self sufficient during her stay, which was important because we had a major snow event while she was here. One of our trees fell and damaged our fence and she contacted us immediately, and sent photos of the damage. She also traveled to our vacation home and checked on that as well. Both our homes were clean and everything was in order when we got home, to the point it didn’t even look like we had left. Sharon even left us some lovely gifts to surprise us when we got home. We would highly recommend Sharon for a house sit and hope that she will be available for us again in the future.

Kathryn in Virginia Beach, VA wrote in Dec 2016:

We were very happy to have Sharon house and cat-sit for us. Communication was excellent. She was our first house-sitter to fly here (all others were close enough to drive) but she made all of her own arrangements and was completely self-sufficient. This was important to me as I was away for an extended period of time focused on caring for elderly relatives and couldn’t provide assistance. My husband returned home to find the house neat and clean and had the opportunity to meet Sharon in person before she left. He commented that she was very personable. I have no hesitation recommending Sharon.
