I’m an experienced, full-time, Lakeside house & pet sitter (since 2013), now considering requests for November through March. My partner & I had to return to the States last November in order to help family with health care needs but I returned to Ajijic in August to continue house sitting. My current sit runs until the end of October so my priority will be booking sits for November and/or December first and then considering assignments from January through March. It’s best to plan early because my schedule usually fills quickly. A little more about me and the details: I am a homeowner and property/rental manager in the U.S.. I worked for many years as a network administrator and I still sometimes take on remote/online work in IT support but am more often offering my services pro bono to local, non-profit organizations. I have extensive experience caring for homes and pets, speak Spanish, and am a residente permanente with many local references. I’m a member of HouseSitMexico.com and HouseCarers.com. I prefer sits of 4 weeks in length or longer but will sometimes consider shorter assignments if it fits in to my schedule &/or fills a gap between assignments. I also prefer to connect with homeowners who travel frequently, or the same time every year, and are looking for a reliable house sitter. Working repeatedly together over time makes things easier since we all know the “drill” and each other. It also provides the same caregiver for your home and/or pet, which builds trust and is comforting to everyone involved. Before committing to any assignment, I’ll want to meet you and your pets at your home in order to review mutual responsibilities. Then, if it feels like a good fit for everyone involved, will confirm the details and dates. For more info: https://www.housesittingbycycle.com/ If interested, please send me a private message with dates needed, number of pets, responsibilities/special needs, etc., and I'll be in touch. Thanks! [Note: I offer my sitting services for free because I feel it is a mutually beneficial exchange and because I make an income through other sources. I adore animals and sitting allows me to travel, live, and work in beautiful places around Mexico. I provide care and security for your home and/or pet(s) while you provide me a place to live and work remotely via the internet. I feel this is a win-win situation for everyone involved.]
Hi Everyone - Since finding a good, reliable pet sitter is so difficult here, I would like to recommend a wonderful woman whom I have now had pet sit for me 3 times for my 3 dogs and 3 cats. My animals absolutely adore her, she stays home with them and showers them all with love and attention. She is an American who lives here full-time, speaks Spanish and is highly competent. She doesn't have her own car, but she does have a current driver's license so she can use your car -- mainly in the event of an emergency. Her name is Kathleen. If you want to connect with her, you can email her at: NeverHomeAlone@Outlook.com.
