"I had the opportunity to watch Natalie and Jodie in action before engaging them to
housesit for us. They took care of the neighbors dogs for two months last year. Since my
house overlooks the neighbors, I had a chance to see them taking the dogs out in all types
of weather ( Colorado mountains in April and May can throw a lot of snow, rain, wind and everything else at you).
They really did an exceptional job of getting the dogs out to the dog park, and for daily
walks or hikes. I also got to observe the care they took of the house & car. We were lucky
to get to know them during their stay, going out for several hikes & joining them for several meals. So when the opportunity presented itself to have them watch our place for a couple
of months, we jumped at it.
Since our dog is a rescue and is a little over-bonded to us, they came a few days early to get him used to the idea of new folks in the house. He loved having his two moms around. So much so that when we came back, he wanted to go off with Jodie instead of me ( they had stayed an extra week at a neighbors house to care for his dog) when we saw them around several times.
Our dog is always our highest priority, but the house and cars were immaculate when we
came home. While we were away, they would send list of the mail received and scan
anything we needed open. We have already arranged for them to come back again
next year for two months.
