Hello Marlon, Cinda and Gabriel, we have our own business, we enjoy the slower pace here in the North East, after living in the city. Love our animals and would like pet sitters who love animals as well.
We are looking for sitters that are neat and tidy and enjoy paradise on earth, as we do.
Our Home & Location
Our home is a 3 bedroom heritage listed home that we love and worked very hard on restoring, very comfortable. We live in the historic township of Stanley, 10 minutes from Beechworth Victoria, a tourist destination with lots of attractions, ghost tours, wineries, the famous Beechworth bakery, Historic town tours, horse a cart rides, Gorge walks, Beechworth honey and more. Just up the road we have Berry picking at 'high grove' (amazing berries), and the famous Stanley pub.
Responsibilities & Pets
The responsibilities would be to love all the animals. The cats and dog sleep inside, cats in the laundry, go to bed around 8.30pm then wake up around 7am, the cats are NOT to go outside, the dog Teddy can go for a walk with sitters, goes outside to the toilet, he usually will go to the door and let you know, but goes first thing in the morning and last thing at night, he is a little deaf and blind, but if you tap your leg firmly he will respond.
The Silkie chicken's are locked up in there area at night at 5pm, need to be sure they have fresh clean water morning and night, 1 slice of bread broken up + their chicken food (layers and wheat pellets in there home (box), water is in a plastic bottle next to their home, I just refill every day. More food in the shed if you run out. The chickens and ducks in the other area have the same structure as the silkie's - the bread, please feed them any scraps you have (except chicken or duck scraps), The chicken pellets and wheat are in the pink mini bins in the shed, behind the ute. In the same shed you will find loosern chaaf for the goats, sheep and alpacas, though the alpacas have pellets as well, they have the 2 small buckets, the goats are also locked up the same routine as the chickens, they stay in the 2 paddocks (1 is the paddock their home is situated and the other paddock is the paddock right next door to there home. All animals will come when called for breakfast and dinner, please don't let the goats out until the alpacas and sheep have eaten, as the goats will eat their food first then go back and eat their own and the other animals will be hungry, The goats eat cabbage, apples, pears leaves from the 2 trees in their paddock, you might need to break a branch, they are beautiful animals and very friendly.
Please call or email if you have any questions.
