A couple quit their jobs and routine lives to become professional pet sitters
Chris and Suze, based in Kent, England, have decided to end their professional careers to travel around the UK and Europe. The couple have no permanent home and live with other people and take care of their pets.
Because of this, the couple hops from house to house across the country and has even managed to travel to Stockholm and Berlin just to tend to the animals. Over the past four years, Chris and Suze have stayed in over 89 homes and cared for approximately 220 animals of all kinds.
They took care of dogs, cats, a herd of alpacas, ducks, geese, chickens, among other animals, making your experience wonderful.
A couple quit their jobs to become ‘Pet Sitters’
The journey began when the couple lived in an apartment where they weren’t allowed to have pets and decided to create an idea to change their situation. So they started walking other people’s dogs, then decided to keep the house full time, to find out what kind of pet they wanted.
After a while, they fell in love with this lifestyle and realized that they could earn a living by living this pleasant experience.
Thus, was born the pet care business, and now in their new business, they charge a small fee to cover their daily living expenses. Amidst their routine, however, the couple do a lot more than walk dogs, as they often come across very strange pets.
Chris told METRO:
We’ve treated hundreds of animals, including alpacas, sheep, chickens, guinea fowl and even ducks.
They have also experienced different lifestyles, since one day they are in town and the next day they may be on the coast or in town. Although Chris and Suze love their new life, the couple admits they are not without problems or stress, as some might think.
Sometimes we stay in the houses for a day and other times it can take a few weeks, so we have to plan everything.
If for some reason there is no place available to spend the night, they must use hotels or go to a relative or friend’s house.
As for the money they earn, it is reinvested in their travel car or their daily expenses, allowing them to balance their financial situation.
Walking the dogs and feeding the animals is just our daily job.
Thanks to his work, people who do not have time to take care of their animals for whatever reason, have the perfect solution to their problems. In the future, the couple want to buy a motorhome, as it would allow them to continue their activities and travel even further.
For now, they will continue to enjoy their daily adventures serving other people’s pets, as they have practically become their life.
