Beautiful Foxton Beach
Obi a super affectionate Rotty 4yrs old and elderly cat, Marmite,17 yrs who doesn't like Obi much at all! Obi needs someone super friendly and confident to look after him and he'll be your best buddy, apart from a morning and afternoon/evening walk and morning and evening feeds (after the walks) he will just want to hang out.
We live in a beach house (bach) close to the beach, boat club and river, there is an amazing estuary with fantastic bird life and forst walks and tracks nearby. Foxton Beach has a great café (Little White Rabbit), restaurant (Ocean Beach Eatery)and fish and chip shop (Mr Grumpys) as well as a 4 Square Superette and Dairy, the 4 Square the furthest away at 2.5 kms....
Foxton township is 5 kms away, that has a fabulous library and history sites, supermarket, cafes, post shop and other shops. + More info

Responsibilities & Pets
House sitters must be able to walk Obi for at least two 45 min-I hr walks a day give some love and affection- especially for Obi, he's pretty needy ...and also feed the animals! Mow the lawns once a week (about 30 mins) weather permitting.
Obi is really strong and gets pretty excited with going for a walk and pulls-so a strong, firm hand is required for him- he loves to play fetch with a stick in the lagoon in summer and does bring it back! NO running for balls anymore as he had to have an operation....
Marmite just needs feeding but pretty much does her own thing. + More info
