The HouseSitter

Specializing in peace of mind for you and your pets.
They trust me to be responsible for anything and every thing they leave in my care.             

“When Annette house-sits, we return home to find our two easily-stressed cats utterly content. They let us know we will be held to a new, higher standard of affection and interaction, lest we be judged less fun than our remarkable surrogate.”

Brenda ~ Boulder, Colorado 


"I value my horses highly and completely trust Annette to recognize when they are in trouble. She actually seems to have a sixth sense as to their well-being."

"I have known Annette both as a horse-owning client and as a house sitter when my clients have left her in charge of their horses while on vacation. I have referred her to many clients over the past decade and have heard nothing but rave reviews about her care and how conscientious and responsible she has been."

                            Nancy, DVM ~ Boulder, Colorado

 "Annette is such a professional and really knows her animals.  While in Europe, my mare became critically ill and Annette made certain my horse received immediate veterinary attention.  I am grateful for the expert care she gives to my animals."  

Chole ~ Boulder, Colorado 

"I highly recommend Annette-without reservation. She is realistic; compassionate without being ridiculous and prioritizes according to my wishes. I have seen her with her own animals; home and responsibilities, as well as, with mine and others. While walking my dog-Elsie-I have accidentally run into other folk who have worked with Annette. We all feel an instant bond. My animals are members of my family. My family has needs and limits-Annette is respectful of those. She has has years of self-employment, therefore, she has run into chaos and dilemmas that she must handle on her own with good skills."

Christie ~Boulder, Colorado
"When we returned, our home was probably in better condition then when we left, our animals were well cared for and the dogs walked twice a day for over a mile each time, the vacation rental guests left happy with their stay and there wasn't a scratch or damage done to our Land-cruiser.   She handled any unforeseen "issues" (power outages, the well valve sticking etc) with common sense and maturity."

 "Accomplished with knowledge and professionalism, extraordinary care and understanding of horses, consistency of schedule and excellent dependability of presence, encouraging and helpful attitude of assistance."

 "Annette is very responsible about office detail and policy. She is always punctual on the job and most conscientious about her work. She conveys a sense of genuine concern and enthusiasm for our clients and their animals at all times. Annette works very well without direct supervision and is very responsible and dependable."

                                                              Robert DVM,MS ~ Boulder, Colorado

 "We needed a Barn Manager. We were not experienced horse people but clearly Annette was. So in 1995 we established a very satisfactory relationship with Annette, in fact there was never a conflict between us. She respected every horse as though it were her own. She honored special needs of every horse and distinctive owner. She shared our goal for caring for horses so they were safe and healthy and thus the owners were to. We recommend Annette highly."

                                                            Lois ~ Boulder,  Colorado


"Annette is a quick and efficient worker whose outgoing personality was enjoyed very much by the ranch guests. She is also a dedicated and observant animal caretaker who performed daily chores with punctuality and attention to detail. She was eager and quick to learn, while able to assume responsibility and to make independent decisions when necessary."

                                                              Leslie,DVM ~ Bend,Oregon


"We found Annette to be extremely conscientious, honest, and hard working, willing and flexible. Her rapport with clients was excellent, and her management of our horses outstanding. In the few months we have had Annette's help, she has proved a very valuable addition to our staff.
