4 bedroom detached home in Bearwood, hot tub and spacious garden
We are a hectic family of 5. We don’t get much time to escape the home, due to our love for our pets. However we would like a few more frequent breaks if we are fortunate enough to find someone to take care of our extended fur family.
Our cat Mittens loves cuddles and company. She is pally with the dogs, however she is an indoor cat and the dogs go outside....
2 of our dogs are older now and slightly more needy. They love company, or just to know someone’s around, the same goes for our Puppy. However Duke is not big on being made a fuss of, infact he prefers not to stroked too often or man handled. They’re all very chilled. The smaller 2 like a bit more fuss and to sit on your lap, have cuddles and be stroked. The dogs have each other for company and they are very close. They like their own space but at the same time they like to know someone is home with them. That’s when they’re most content.
Our dogs love people, but Duke can be feisty with other dogs, so when walking them, you must be on high alert of other dogs and would only recommend walking Duke if you’re reasonably strong. That being said, he’s remarkably well trained, listens well to commands and walks well to heel on his lead. He’s a very good, quiet boy.
They are all very well behaved and low maintenance.
Our rats just need a little bit of chatting to and some food a couple of times a day.
The fish need feeding only 2-3 times a week. Light switched on for about 5 hours a day.
Think that’s everything! + More info
