One couple gave up the 9-5 rat race to become full-time pet sitters, living in others’ homes across the UK and Europe to care for their cuddly creatures. surname.

Four years ago, Chris, 32, and Suze, 29, from Kent, decided to give up their careers and move out of their permanent home to try a completely different lifestyle.

The couple have now hopped between homes around the country and have even traveled to Berlin and Stockholm to pet and sit at home.

Chris and Suze have stayed in 89 homes over the past few years and care for more than 220 animals – including 120 dogs, 60 cats and a flock of alpacas.

“We live in a city apartment that doesn’t allow us to have a dog of our own,” says Suze.

“We wanted to have pets, so we started walking other people’s dogs.

“Then we decided to have a pet and sit home full-time so we could figure out what kind of pet we wanted and where we wanted to live.”

After falling in love with the lifestyle, Chris and Suze realized they could make a living from the experience and set up their own business where they collected a small amount of money to cover their living expenses.

However, the couple does more than walk the puppies and regularly take care of a number of unique pets.

“We have taken care of hundreds of animals including alpacas, sheep, chickens, guinea fowl and even ducks,” says Chris.

“We’ve also been able to live with all sorts of lifestyles – one week we’re taking care of a dog in a busy city and the next week we’re on the Dorset coast.”

Suze added: “It shows that there’s not just one way of life and it’s really interesting to see how many different lifestyles there are in the UK.

Although Chris and Suze love their new lifestyle, the couple admit it’s not as stressful as others think.

“Sometimes we stay indoors for a day or so and other times it can be a couple of weeks, so we have to plan a lot in advance,” says Chris.

“If there’s no room for a night or so, we have to use the hotel, the AirBnB, and contact any family or friends who are in the area.

Suze added: “There are quite a few administrators, and we’re always planning where we’re going next – walking the dog and feeding the animals is just our day job.

“The money we make goes into driving and traveling so everything balances money wisely.

“We’ve put a lot of work into this and it’s not for everyone – especially those who are used to a nightly out lifestyle and so can’t spend time taking care of a pet – they have may have difficulty adapting to this lifestyle.

“For us, pets and household responsibilities have always come first.”

Suze said the couple are considering investing in a camping van in the near future, which will allow them to travel more freely in the future.
