D&B House Sitters


DJ, Chateaubriant, France

Debra and Bruce are wonderful sitters. They have looked after our house, 3 cats and a large fishpond! They kept in touch by email and text during our holiday so that we were never worried about our house or our pets. If they are available, we will use them again.
We have no hesitation in recommending them.

SMF, Poitou-Charentes, France

Debra and Bruce looked after our house and two pets, a cat and a greyhound, for a total
of ten days while we went on holiday. We felt confident in their abilities to deal with any 'issues' and our confidence was fully justified. The pets were well looked after as attention was paid to their routines and needs and the house was kept clean and tidy. They are friendly and competent and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone else a needing pet/house sitter. We shall definitely book them again, with confidence.

I have no hesitation in recommending Debra and Bruce for house and dog sitting.
Our dogs love them coming and I don't even think that they notice we have gone. Their routine is not disturbed and they get lots of walks and attention. The house is well looked after too. They are completely trustworthy and
I highly recommend them.

I have known Debra and Bruce for over 10 years. They are a sensible reliable couple who will take good care of any pets left in their care. They have cared for our two dogs and our numerous cats on several occasions, making it a pleasure to get away for a break together.

PG, Midi-Pyrenees, France

We really can't recommend these guys enough. They arrived the night before we left and were so friendly and good fun, that we were a little sad to be leaving them the next day! They looked after our two elderly boxers brilliantly, one of whom had incontinence problems - not everyone's cup of tea! Debra and Bruce dealt with her with patience and understanding - and for that we will always be grateful. Not once did we worry about the dogs while away from them - something we've not experienced before. But we totally trusted them to look after the dogs, love and care for them - and we were not wrong. We returned to happy, healthy dogs, and the house was also much cleaner and tidier from how we left it!

JF, Maine-et-Loire, France

Debra and Bruce re-organised their schedule when I asked them to house sit at very short notice. Came back from holiday to happy dog and cats and lots of my garden veg in the freezer for me!
Will definitely be contacting them again.


KB, Poitou-Charentes, France

Bruce and Debra sat for us for the first time in June 2014.
We have had other sitters,
but they really have been the best and we have already engaged them for our June holiday next year. We have a large menagerie of various animals and they were unfazed by everything that was thrown at them. We have complete confidence in them and it felt like having friends to stay.
We have no hesitation at all
in recommending them to anyone.

JB, Poitou - Charentes, France

What a lovely couple and I have always been delighted with the service that they provide - either singly or together.
They are totally reliable - and my animals are always happy to see them back! I think that says a lot!! I use them regularly.


DHG, Peak District, UK

We have my father aged 94 living with us. We also have a 2 year old flat coat retriever. In order to go to visit my son in Australia we needed housesitters and we found Debra and Bruce.
We used them again in September 2014 and were totally happy with the care they provided as they were kind and caring towards my father and the dog. We have already booked them again for our next month away adventure in 2015. Such peace of mind.

AB, Civray, France

Debra and Bruce looked after my 3 dogs and 4 cats for 10 days. They gave me regular updates on how they were.

All my pets were happy and well looked after and my house was cleaner on my return than when I left it.

Would highly recommend this highly professional lovely kind couple.

HTW, Poitou-Charentes, France

We have used Debra and
Bruce to care for our house and menagerie (12 cats and
5 chickens) three times now, and have been delighted with their services.

Thanks to Bruce spotting our cat Monty being off colour, and him consequently receiving urgent treatment for kidney failure, he is still with us; what better accolade can we offer? You can rest assured that your pets are in good hands.

DC, Poitou-Charentes, France

This is the first time we have used "live in sitters". We are delighted at the care they have shown for our home and for our dog. They are trustworthy, caring and thoughtful. We will be recommending to friends and definitely using Bruce and Debra again.


A & KL, West Yorkshire, UK

DB House sitters have just become known as “the best house sitters in the world” in our house! I cannot speak highly enough of the care and attention taken to every detail in looking after my two much loved choc Labs!  I don’t think they would have been too bothered had we not returned from holiday - but we did!  And what we returned to was content dogs, a clean house, and a feeling of much love! I have to add that they went the extra mile in even getting here in the first place - thanks to French air traffic control staff being on strike mountains were moved by DB House Sitters to make sure they arrived in time.  I am so grateful and have already booked for October!
