Puppy/House Sit in beautiful Maldon
We are seeking a sitter to look after our adorable puppy, chooks and garden. We like to travel and take short trips regularly.
Our Home & Location
Our home is in beautiful Maldon in central Victoria. It is an easy 20 minute walk to the main street, or 1 minute drive. Maldon is a lovely town with cafes, pubs, gift shops and lots of history. Our home is very close to bush walks and the golf course.
Maldon is 30 minutes drive to Bendigo, 15 minutes to Castlemaine, 1.5 hours to Melbourne....
It's a modern 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home. Our sitter would have access to a queen size bed, and an air mattress can be provided. We have a big kitchen and open plan living area with wood fire for chilly nights. We have air conditioning, a dishwasher, coffee machine and good wifi. We also have a treadmill and bikes available. We may also be able to leave a car available for our sitter.
We live on a half acre block with a large lawn area and veggie patch. We have 3 chooks and a friendly little puppy. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We have a puppy called Lucky. She is currently about 6 months old (born in July) so she still learning her obedience training and sometimes she chews shoes. She lives outside and has the full run of our yard.
She loves to fetch and run around outside, and in between she sleeps a lot. She eats twice a day. We are looking for a sitter who will make the time to play with her, practice her training, feed her, and treat her like part of the family....
We also have 3 friendly chooks. They have an automatic feeder, so they just need their water topped up each day and the eggs collected. They can be let out to range in the garden, but may need to be shooed out of the veggie patch! Our sitter is very welcome to eat the eggs collected.
Our garden needs to be watered during summer. The lawn has sprinklers so these just need to be turned on for 20 minutes every few days. The veggie patch will need daily watering in the hot summer months. We have several sprinklers so these just need to be moved around. Over summer the garden will need 1-2 hours of watering daily, before 10am or after 6pm. If there are veggies ready in the patch, our sitter is welcome to eat these. + More info
