Sitter Needed for 2 young collie crosses in renovated house in beautiful countryside
Jet's mum was a border collie and his father was a German Shorthaired Pointer crossed with a dachshund. He isn't a big dog (20kg) as he has short legs and is very well behaved . He still has his moments and is selectively deaf on occasions when he sees another dog and wants to play but he is very friendly. His only fault is that he is nervous of strangers but when he gets to know you he is very loving and playful.
Merlin again is half border collie, the other half is miniature poodle/maltese. He is quite small just 10kg. He was a rescue and is still nervous of hands around his collar but is a real softie and cuddle monster. He is very well behaved....
The person or couple must be able to drive as we don't live in walking distance of anything - except our one neighbour !! + More info
Our Home & Location
We live in the countryside close to the village of Castanet in the Tarn et Garonne. The house was completely renovated in 2011 and is a traditional stone farmhouse of the area. It has 3 double bedrooms and bathrooms and a single bedroom. The lounge/kitchen is a double height room with exposed beams and it has central heating and stone and wood floors. It has masses of character. We do not have a pool.
Responsibilities & Pets
I need someone who will feed and walk Jet and Merlin, as they are young they need a reasonable amount of exercise - two walks a day of about 45 minutes to 1 hour each one. Although if the weather is very hot, one walk early in the cool of the day will suffice.
I also need the sitter to water the vegetable patch every evening....
I would also expect the sitter to keep the house clean and tidy and the dogs bedding washed once a week. + More info
