Looking for house sitter in January 2018
I am looking for someone to house sit our 4 dogs, pot bellied pig and various chickens You will need to have experience with dogs as they can be quite lively. A couple would be better than an individual, simply because it's easier to walk 4 dogs if there are two of you!! Great rural countryside and plenty of off road walking routes. We are situated in a village with a shop, pharmacy and bakery within walking distance. Tarbes and Pau are about an hour from us. Ideally, you should have a driving licence as we are quite rural and there are (even) more dog walking opportunities within a short driving distance (car available). Being able to speak reasonable french would be a great advantage as it's a small rural village.
Our Home & Location
Traditional Gascon house situated in a pretty village which has shops and services within walking distance. Close to vineyards and the Pyrenées. We have central heating and an open fire to keep you warm. The accommodation includes a room with private bathroom and full run of the house.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feeding and exercising the dogs, feeding and looking after Clara, the pig and the various chickens and to look after the house and garden. You will need to have experience with dogs. They are great dogs, very friendly but can be a little difficult with other dogs that are on lead. They are fine if the other dog is off lead. They will come to call, but will chase deer given half a chance, so you need to be able to spot them before they do !! Clara, the pig is very friendly and just needs feeding twice a day, as do the chickens.
