Regular long weekends to visit kids in regional areas of NSW and occasional longer holidays.
Married couple in mid-60s with adult children with families. We'd like to find one or two regular sitters so we can visit the kids and grandkids without our dogs having to get used to new people every time.
Our Home & Location
Our home is 2 storey with 2 upstairs guest bedrooms with queen beds and a kids room downstairs with double bunks and a cot. These rooms are used by our family when they come to visit. Walking distance to La Perouse and surrounding beaches about 500 metres. Botany Bay National Park starts opposite the house. Walking trails lead out to the headland or down to the beach but you can’t take the dogs into the National Park.
Responsibilities & Pets
Mind the house, walk the dogs (always on leash) and make sure the garden and pot plants ( of which there are many) stay alive. There are watering systems which automatically cover different areas of garden and patio. There are a few indoor plants also. The dogs are both quite large but are well behaved. They are used to being inside the house. Bonny is a standard poodle and Nova is a standard poodle x golden retriever - no fancy clipping or grooming involved. Bonny has hip dysplasia but is well managed with medication and regular short walks. She also has dry eyes which need cleaning and drops twice a day. Nova is a bundle of energy with no ongoing health problems. Feed the fish every couple of days. May need to clean the pond if we’re away a while.
