House/pet sitter(s) wanted
We are a close knit family of animal lovers who require a house- sitter(s) so that our soppy, very affectionate dogs and cats can stay at home while we are away. We have previously placed our dogs in kennels when we go away but it has caused so much stress that our boy suffered 4 major seizures after we picked him up to come home. We really feel that staying in their own environment would be so much better for our much loved pets.
Our Home & Location
Our home is a 4 bedroom, 1 bathroom villa which is close to town (10 minute walk). Unlimited wifi, Netflix, Lightbox, Gaia Tv. A fireplace for chilly nights You will have use of a car if you require it to get around. You will be centrally located for short drives to various beaches (Maketu, Pukehina, Papamoa, Mt Maunganui), and a 40 minute drive to Rotorua. In the main township there are 2 x supermarkets and an abundance of retail outlets, bakeries and cafes.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our pets are pretty low maintenance. We keep a continuous flow of cat biscuits in their bowl. The dogs are fed and walked once per day. The dogs are inside pets and the cats come in and out as they please and usually stay in at night time. We have a cat door so you don't have to worry about getting up to them in the middle of the night to let them out. The dogs are pretty affectionate and trained to sit and come. We have had Bailey from a puppy and we got Rosie about ten months ago. Rosie likes to jump and while she is getting better at restraining herself, she just can't help herself sometimes. They both have a bit of sepearation anxiety when we go out so the more you enjoy staying at home the better for them! Apart from that they are pretty awesome.
