Rural West Sussex House Sitting for red setters
We have 2 super-friendly (and remarkably chilled) Irish Setters, 1 (outdoor) cat, a tank of tropical fish, and a field of sheep...
The dogs don't NEED daily walking as they have their own field to play in to their hearts content, but are ecstatic given the chance of off site adventures. The cat is outdoors only. The fish really don't take up much time and the sheep just need a regular check to make sure all okay....
Would love someone who can just make sure they are safe, keep them fed and give the dogs a cuddle, and stay in the house overnight while we are away to keep it occupied. + More info
Our Home & Location
We are in rural West Sussex, about 4 miles from nearest rail station (Billingshurst - direct to London Victoria is about 55mins), and about 10 miles from the coast. Easy access to the A24, our closest towns are Storrington or Pulborough. Good access to public footpaths/bridleways and perfect for cycling.
I run a business (in a separate building) and the girls who work for me are very familiar with the animals so are more than happy to care for them during the day Monday to Friday, however I would really like a house-sitter for evenings/overnight and weekends when we are away....
If you are able to meet up prior to sitting that would be a bonus - there's a lot to take in at handover otherwise! + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Main responsibilities would be to ensure the house is occupied in the evenings, dogs are fed twice a day, cat fed once every few days, and fish fed couple of times a week.
