Dog sitter needed in Melbourne's outer east over Christmas (car included)
Any new applications are welcome!...
We are a small family with a 8 month old daughter and two doggies. A four year old English Pointer named Peppa and a six year old Kelpie Koolie cross named Kingsley.
Our families live in NSW and we'd love to visit them over Christmas without worrying about our fur babies.
They are high energy dogs when they are not lazing in the lounge room on their beds.
Kingsley can be sensitive to men he doesn't know so we'd prefer a female sitter or a male who understands the stress-head kelpie breed. There is a great park only a five minute walk from our house and we are on the doorstep of the beautiful Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges. It is only 30-40mins to the beach from here. We also have air conditioning for the hot summer weather. + More info
Our Home & Location
Three bed two bath home. Recently renovated bathrooms and kitchen. The guest room has an ensuite, and air con and opens to a nice outdoor seating area. Croydon is a nice outer eastern suburban area of Melbourne. There is a Main Street with Coffee Shops and even a Brewery. The city is only a 40 minute car drive or 50 minutes on the train. It's a 10 minute walk to the Train Station from our house. There is great access the the countryside, wineries and Mornington Peninsula. There is also the Yarra River at Warrendyte and many other beautiful places to explore.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feeding and being company to the dogs for part of the day/ night. Also walking the dogs every day. In the hot summer weather this means early mornings or evenings. Walking on lead only as Peppa can be temperamental with recall.
The dogs have access to the lounge / dining via a doggy door but not the bedrooms. Peppa has a cave bed she loves to crawl into.
