Home in the hills of Melbourne, with affectionate cocker spaniel
We are a family of four, living in a suburban town of Melbourne, located in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, 40 km east of Melbourne CBD; we have beautiful forest walks on our doorstep, & the Yarra Valley & wineries within half an hour.
We are travelling to the UK for one month in June/July of 2019, and would like a responsible animal lover to take care of our very loving & affectionate Cocker Spaniel (currently 13 months) - Skye; and our 2 year old rabbit, Louis.
Our Home & Location
Our home is a single story brick, three bedroom house with one bathroom, central heating & a cosy wood fired stove. It is located in a small town called Monbulk, in the Dandenong Ranges, one hours drive from the city of Melbourne. The local area is filled with beautiful walks, gardens to visit, galleries & delicious cafes to discover.
We are on the edge of the Dandenong Ranges National Park and the Yarra Valley. There are many great walks, many beautiful wineries and places to visit all within easy driving distance. We are in walking distance of a small shopping village & supermarkets. Buses travel through the town down to Belgrave where one can then travel by train into the city centre of Melbourne in approximately 1 hour.
Responsibilities & Pets
Skye loves a walk each day - either from the house, or to other locations (she is familiar with car travel!). There is a fabulous large off lead dog park within 10 minutes drive from here, and Skye also loves the beach & the water! It is a 1 hour drive to beautiful calm bay beaches, or 1 hour to sandy surf beaches on the Mornington peninsula.
Skye is an inside & outide dog. She loves to run & play in our backyard, which is fully fenced....
Louis is our adorable 2 year old rabbit. We also have two lovely chickens - Moneypenny & Spotty. + More info
