Two adorable Old English sheep dog sisters need caring sitters
After many years working within the care industry we now find ourselves with more time to travel and support a charity in Nepal. We enjoy family time with our grown up children and two gorgeous grand children. Walking, cycling, yoga and new physical challenges keep us busy not to mention our adorable dogs. They are very friendly and love lots of attention , hence we are looking for a caring active sitter whilst we are away on various trips.
Our Home & Location
We live in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, with views over open fields. Our home is a five bedded detached converted barn with a separate annex where my retired parents live independently. The barn benefits from underfloor heating with log burners in the main lounge and the very spacious open plan kitchen /dining area. Set within 2.5 acres of gardens and paddocks, very secure for the dogs to roam around in. The nearest shops/pubs are located a short distance away (0.8 miles) in the village of Brailsford.
A fantastic award winning Farm shop and restaurant is a couple of miles away, not to mention other great village pubs. Derby city centre is about 5 miles away and Nottingham 20 miles. Derbyshire is a great location to enjoy so many local attractions, we are only 40 mins drive from Chatsworth house and 30 mins from other National Trust stately homes. Kedleston Hall is located 2 miles away (45 min walk with the dogs). The Peak district is famous for its great walks and rock climbing....if you're feeling that way inclined and probably some of the UK's finest countryside.
Responsibilities & Pets
Skye and Bleu are two fully grown Old English Sheep dogs, they are strong and very playful. They require walks, feeding, brushing (a regular dog groomer visits), more walks, and loved to be fussed and cuddled. They are very good natured and loving.
