House/Dog sitter needed for affectionate German Shepherd!
We are a young professional couple with a home in the peaceful suburb of Hemmant, just 11kms from the Brisbane CBD. In January this year we welcomed Gemma the German Shepherd pup into our home. She very quickly captured our hearts with her huge personality, cheeky nature, and endless affection. Gemma absolutely loves her human company, playing games, hiding her bones, going for walks, and lots of cuddles.
A house-sitter is the ideal option for Gemma for when we go away, so she can remain calm in her own home, a familiar environment. It also give us the peace of mind to know she is well looked after while we are away. We hope the arrangement could be a win/win for someone to enjoy our place and the doggy company while we are away!
Our Home & Location
Hemmant is a beautiful, peaceful, small country suburb only 11kms east of the Brisbane CBD. It is close to the Gateway motorway, and only a 12 minute drive to the Brisbane airport. Hemmant railway station is within walking distance and provides regular access to Brisbane CBD and Cleveland. The beautiful bayside suburbs of Wynnum and Manly are only 5 minutes away, with great cafes, restaurants and farmers markets. Hemmant is a small, friendly neighbourhood, where people smile and say hello to each other.
Our home is a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom family style home and as such would be suitable for kids.
Responsibilities & Pets
The main responsibility would be looking after Gemma - making sure she is fed and has a walk each day as she is a young dog and has lots of energy. Although she is used to us being out most days, she is very people-focused and we would prefer that someone would be home most nights to give her the attention she needs. Apart from that, we have a couple of indoor plants to be watered, nothing too labour intensive!
