Hello, we need someone to come and sit with our dogs at home, when we go out for the day and for overnight stays too when we go away on holidays.
Hi, my dogs get worried when they are left at home alone, they are making progress with training, but still need company if we go out for all day or when we go away on holiday. They are both rescue dogs and need the help of people who are quiet and calm. In return you will get lots of cuddles. K might even try to push you off the sofa if he stretches his long legs out whilst lying next to you. P loves sitting on laps and likes to sleep touching someone.
Our Home & Location
We live in a lovely little cottage in the village of Horndon On the Hill, Essex. We have the best of both worlds because we live in a rural, farming community but we are only 30 minutes from London in a car/train.
Our village is very picturesque and has beautiful homes and buildings, including those with a thatched roof and community building that dates back to the 16th Century, (The Woolmarket). There are many local footpaths for those that enjoy walking and an excellent village pub called The Bell, that has won awards for it's food and hospitality. You may need a car if you want to explore further than the village, but you can walk to a nearby train station, which is 30 minutes on foot....
We are also near to Lakeside Shopping Centre (10 minute drive or 25 minutes on the train). There are many places to eat and various shops at Lakeside, as well as a cinema. And we are a 30 minute drive from Southend On Sea beachside resort, or this is 45 minutes away on the train.
If you drive and are happy to pop the dogs in to your car, you can walk them at the private field where my horses are kept, which is 1 mile in the car. (Not really accessible on foot as there are no pavements to use). I have a small herd of rescue horses and keep them in a beautiful 15 acre field that has a small woodland, so lots to explore. The dogs love it there. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
No walking required really, unless you have a car and would like to walk them at the field where my hoses are kept. Otherwise, they can have lots of enrichment in the garden and home, so we just need someone to keep them company, feed them and give cuddles.
