We like to travel away for our holidays and need someone to look after our dog, Zippy, as we have had bad experiences with kennels. We offer you a clean and tidy 3 bedroom house in the suburbs of Palmerston North, a city within easy day

Home & location

Lovely sunny, clean and tidy house - conveniently located close to the city but also in a quiet area. We are in walking distance to the Square (our small CBD), and on the main city bus route, and 10 minutes walk to the Massey bus route

Our dog, Zippy, is an obedient, well behaved dog who is fed twice daily (dry biscuits) and needs a daily 30-45 minute walk. She sleeps in our bedroom but has her own bed. We live close to the Te Araroa river trail where you can let her run
