Two small dogs and one cat near Bendigo.
My partner and I have lived in our house for 18 months. We both work in the Community Services sector. We are going to the UK to see my parents for a month and need a caring person/couple to look after our 2 small dogs and 1 cat.
Our Home & Location
Our house is on 3 acres with a beautiful garden and large garage and shed. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 used as studies and 2 living areas. The main bedroom has an ensuite and there is a guest bedroom and another bathroom. The house is situated 10 minutes outside of Bendigo in Sedgwick. It is a 7 minute drive to the nearest supermarket and about a 10 minute drive to Lansell Square, a larger shopping centre with Coles, Woolies, Kmart etc and about a 12 minute drive to the main train station (Kangaroo Flat Station is about the same distance). We have wifi but it is satellite so can only get so many gigs - fine for everyday use but not for a lot of streaming unless you are a nightowl (the off peak allowance is more generous but is between 1 and 7am).
Responsibilities & Pets
The main responsibility is to look after the pets. Company and feeding are the main requirements. We both work part-time and the dogs are inside, on the bed type dogs. The cat is more self suffiicient and tends to appear for the occasional pat. We don’t expect gardening etc but people are welcome to potter in the garden/orchard if they want to. We would like the house to be clean and tidy when we return (as it will be left) but really expect people to make themselves at home while they are here.
