Pet and House sitter required for Dylan our 13 year old Welsh Springer and his great-nephew Harri, who is 3 years old.
We are a retired couple living in Essex. We have two Welsh Springer dogs, and they are really good pals. They go every where together. Dylan is 13 years old and his great nephew Harri is 3 years old. Dylan has a separation anxiety problem and therefore cannot be left alone even with Harri, so it is best if they are together and with you all the time. They love going in the car and can be left in the car whilst you shop etc. for a short while as long as it is not too hot. Long rides in the car with a walk at the end of the journey are not a problem they love going out for the day.
The dogs like their walk first thing in the morning and we usually do about 1 to 2 miles, normally at a local Nature Reserve which includes the beach. The beach can also be reached from the house by foot, but both dogs are not to good on the lead and they do pull, that makes them sound really badly trained but that is not the case they are both lovely boys and like a lot of affection....
This sit is all about the dogs.
This sitting is suited to a couple as they can not be left in the house alone a couple would cope better if you need to dash out for milk.
Both dogs sleep upstairs, not on the bed. + More info
Our Home & Location
Our home is within walking distance of the shops and the beach. We can supply car if required.
