Long-term sitter for 3 dogs in their lovely, huge country home near Malaga
Caroline and Robert, globetrotting couple since childhoods, now splitting time between Spain, Brazil and Bali. We have a huge house in the country, very peaceful but only 2 minutes by car from the C2 train line into Malaga and we have a bus stop 5 minutes’ walk away. We seek a long-term sitter(s), non-smoking, to care for our house, garden and 3 dogs. Luna, 11, has only 3 legs, and sleeps most of the day. Emily and Wilbur are a bonded pair, very low maintenance, but need pyjamas in the winter. We would like to invite sitters to apply for an initial period of 3-4 weeks, and, all going well. we would extend this for up to six months. Please note that we will not accept smokers or children.
Our Home & Location
We are on a very peaceful road, river on one side, few houses on the other. We are on a dead-end country road halfway between Estacion de Cartama and Pizarra. Our house has 7 bedrooms, and contains a 2 bedroom guest wing with full kitchen, bathroom, laundry. Private, gated entrance, land is 8000 sq. m and fully fenced. Most of the garden is on automatic irrigation. Well water, mains power, internet provided. The house is light, airy and has recently been completely renovated.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feed and general care of 3 dogs, with special attention to Luna, who is a sweet, calm dog with only 3 legs, so essential that she has nearby water and soft bed. Younger two need pyjamas during cold nights, Luna needs a jacket on freezing nights. They have a huge kennel in the garden. Feed 2x daily, ensure plenty of water. They are all microchipped and local vet does house calls. General care of the house and garden, 70% of which we have let go wild. We will provide comprehensive list of local trusted handymen, and clear written instructions for well and pump. The house has just been totally renovated from top to toe, we expect and trust our sitter(s) to keep it clean and report any issues so we can ensure these are correctly fixed. Thank you
