Pet Sitter and house sitter for 2 dogs and 3 cats located between Dordogne and Gourdon, France
A short drive from our house can be taken to reach the Dordogne River, or a lake at Grolejac and another nice lake at Gourdon. Supermarkets are within a 15 minute drive at Gourdon, along with some very nice restaurants. Gourdon has a cathedral as well as Sarlat, both have old sections which are historical. A car is essential but we can offer one if necessary. Both Gourdon and Sarlat have train station.
Our Home & Location
We have a new modern house in the countryside, we have a few neighbours but the location is quiet. We have a swimming pool set in an acre of garden. In the local area there are some beautiful walks. Our house has 2 en suite bedrooms. We have English television, and internet. We have electric cooking, a dishwasher and a washing machine.
Responsibilities & Pets
We would expect house sitters to care for all our pets. Aero and Mea need walking twice a day, they can be off lead if in a field with no traffic. They are fed twice a day with biscuits. Aero loves swimming and enjoys the lake at Grolejac or the river, he must remain on a long rope, otherwise he just won't come out of the water. Mea is usually car sick, but we do have some anti sickness pills that sometimes help. Finn, the older cat has medication every day because he suffers from high blood pressure. He is also deaf. The other 2 younger cats do not require any special treatment. Ossi we tend to keep in at night because he has a history of fighting with the neighbourhood cats! Please note that we try to keep the dogs and cats separated as Mea in particular is a bit boisterous with them.
