Two Welsh Springer Spaniels and a home in the heart of Perth
We are a family of 4 with two adorable Welsh Springer Spaniels. We have Pippi who is 7 years and Rusty, who was born in January 2018. When Pippi was on her own we used a kennel for holidays however as she has grown older she prefers to stay at home. Now with Rusty we felt this was a good opportunity to move over to house sitters. We have had house sitters recommended to us by several friends and feel that it would be a great help to us and give someone else the opportunity to stay in a lovely corner of Perth, WA. So far this year we have had three lots of house sitters from this site and it has all gone really well. We hope to find some other lovely people for more breaks we have coming up.
Our Home & Location
We have a new build home, completed in December 2017. It is quiet, secure, with all the modern convienences including wifi, Netflix, Foxtel, Reverse Cycle A/C, a solar heated pool, large kitchen, dedicated guest room and relaxing alfresco. We are centrally located in Perth; there is a bus stop at the end of the street, the train station is a 5 minute walk. We can walk easily to the beautiful Lake Monger, several different shopping hubs, lots of restaurants, cafes and services. The beach is a 10 minute drive (or 30 minutes if by train) and we are close to the freeway as well.
Responsibilities & Pets
Pippi and Rusty are 'home bodies' who adore their human company. They cannot be left too long in a day (up to 5 hours once a day and perhaps just an hour or two outside of that). Both dogs enjoy a daily walk either around Lake Monger or at the local dog park. Both also love to sit at the local coffee shop and watch the world go by. Pippi is trained in all the basic commands and Rusty is eager to learn and picking up his training suprisingly fast. They are both well known in the neighbourhood and at the local school gate where they get daily cuddles!
