Someone for occasional house and pet sitting
Our kids have grown up and moved on so it's time for us to travel and enjoy ourselves. We lead busy work lives and like to go away for weekends as well as longer blocks of time annually.

Responsibilities & Pets
Our two cocker spaniel puppies, Issy and Zechy, are very friendly and love to be with people. They stay outside during the day and love to come inside when you're home. They are learning very quickly and are crate trained for night time. Walks and games are required daily and often.
Our productive 5 hens are low needs. They have their own space and shelter. They expect to be fed and watered around 5pm so they are good at having their eggs ready for collection around then....
We have a few basic vegetable and herb gardens that need water etc. We also like to keep the lawn watered.
We have a cleaner come to help with basic cleaning weekly, you would just need to make sure you clean after yourself in the kitchen etc. + More info
