Caring, Capable and Responsible

Retired Educational Assistant

I am an active, retired mom of 4 adult children, living in St. Albert, Alberta, married with a golden retriever named Ole and our tabby cat Charlie.
I enjoy gardening, long walks with Ole, I am an avid runner and cyclist; in winter I enjoy the outdoors: snowshoeing or downhill skiing.

Being a home owner, I can appreciate having peace of mind with a reliable person who is respectful of your home, and kind to your pets.

I have always had pets, either fish, birds, cats or dogs I have administered medications, clipped nails on uncooperative cats and birds, and given palliative care for one of our cats diagnosed with cancer.

I am an experienced house and pet sitter and my goal is to ensure that you have a worry-free vacation knowing that your pets and property are in safe hands.
Your home will be treated with respect and animals will be treated with care, love and affection. Your home will always be kept tidy, neat and clean. I charge $75.00 a day/night for the first pet and $25.00 for each additional pet.
This would include light yard and home duties as required.

While my retired husband will be home, taking care of our dog Ole and cat Charlie, He may join me on extended sits. I will be the main house/pet sitter.

Previous house/petsitting.

Pauline has taken care of my pets for the last few years. She has taken them for overnight, extended vacations, and day walks. She takes her job very seriously and every pet is well taken care of. She is attentive and keeps them well entertained and follows their diet. Pauline will also brush, groom as needed, and follow all information for pet, home and yard care maintenance
Whenever I return, my pets are happy and content. They are well exercised, and I never have to feel guilty about leaving them behind. She will send me updates and pictures of my pets and I can see how well they are doing. She is highly responsible and excellent with animals. I would highly recommend her if you were going away and know that you are in good hands.

To Whom It May Concern:
Re: Reference for Pauline
I have been asked to provide a reference for Pauline in relation to her providing house-sitting services and caregiving for pets. I am delighted to provide this reference and offer an unqualified endorsement of Pauline's character and credentials.
I have known Pauline very well for almost 40 years. During that time, I have had the opportunity many times to see first-hand how she runs her own home, how she treats others' homes while a guest, and how she cares for pets. Pauline is a very energetic person who runs an efficient and clean house. She is responsible, common-sense and organized. As a guest in someone else's home, she is conscientious about "pulling her weight" - chipping in to help the hosts and cleaning up after herself (and others). She has been a responsible and loving owner of both dogs and cats and is diligent about walking them, feeding them, ensuring they get appropriate medical attention and cleaning up after them as needed.
I personally am known as a somewhat fussy housekeeper and I would be thrilled to have Pauline take care of my own home while I am away.
I am confident that if you were to select Pauline to care for your house and pets, you would benefit from the many positive aspects of her character. You would return to a clean and tidy home and safe and happy pets. You would be assured of her following any special instructions you may have, respecting your privacy, demonstrating her honesty and diligence, and using good judgment to deal with any issues (e.g. oven stops working, pet is sick) while you are away. In addition, you would find Pauline a delight to speak with and spend time with; she is simply a wonderful person!
If you have any questions about Pauline's competence or would like to speak with me personally about my reference, please do not hesitate to contact me.

What a treat to be able to go on vacation and not have to worry about our pet and property. Pauline's care is impressive: she is a very responsible and contentious sitter who makes pet care and attention to the details her priority. Pauline is an outstanding pet sitter.

Excellent sitter! Pauline is reliable, contentious, and very experienced in pet & property care. Pauline cared for our pet and property as do we. Her nurturing attention to our pet's routine and detail was flawless. We returned, our cat was happy to see us, but missed Pauline her new forever friend!

YOUR RESPONSE: You could not ask for a more reliable, considerate, or caring pet sitter than Pauline. Pauline shared many photos with us while we were away, and it was clear that our labs Paris and Diva were not only having their basic needs addressed but were having a blast. It is evident that Pauline loves animals and shows them a great deal of affection. She even made sure that Paris, who has arthritis, made it to her regular chiropractic appointment. Although we made it clear that the dogs ... MORE

Pauline did a wonderful job looking after our year old pup and our 15 year old cat while we were in England for a month. Our cat got brushed and petted regularly, and our dog was walked and exercised , as well as petted and cared for. Communication was clear and often. The house itself was beautifully cared for, cleaner than when we left. The lawn was mowed, and garden and maintenance taken care of. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Pauline. We communicated via email and text ... MORE

This was our first experience using HOUSESITTERSCANADA. Pauline responded to our ad and we quickly developed a easy rapport. After a further FaceTime conversation we confirmed she would pet sit our two cats. We were absolutely thrilled with our experience of having Pauline care for our cats and house and we will definitely use her services again, should future vacation dates work between us. We would highly recommend Pauline for any pet or house sitting service. She is wonderful!
KATHY AND DARCY ( British Columbia, Mar 2022 - 20 days)
Pauline is amazing. She asked so many good questions before the sit, to make sure she was comfortable with our dogs and house. Her organization and communication were superb. She sent us photos of our 2 dogs while away, and gave them lots of stimulation and exercise! They loved her as well :). Our house was in tiptop form when we got home, plants watered and mail organized! Pauline is a joy and we would absolutely welcome her to our home anytime in the future.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
