Dog sitter for 2 lovely dogs in country house near chichester
We have 2 lovely rescue dogs who need company whilst we are away. They usually go to kennels but our lab/whippet cross gets unsettled in kennels. We live in a large detached former farmhouse surrounded by countryside yet within walking distance to the village.
One dog is small, affectionate but is always on patrol and will bark at fresh air. The other dog sounds fierce but is a softie. He is a timid dog and loves a cuddle. Both dogs are rescue dogs....
The September dates includes a couple of days before we go away so that Tag the lab can settle with you. He is likely to get spooked and run away otherwise! The return date is approximate but we can work this with you. + More info
Our Home & Location
We have a 3 bedroom large former farmhouse, with 11 acres of land. The house is close to a nature reserve and a 30 minute walk to the beach. The village 1/2 mile away has great foodie pubs. The house is comfortable with full central heating and an Aga (must be used to cooking on the Aga otherwise you'll be on a fast dial to Domino's!). There is use of a hot tub in the walled garden. We are 1/2 amile away from our closest neighbour, but not totally isolated. We are in the middle of a working arable farm so the road to the house can get very muddy.
Responsibilities & Pets
To supervise meal times as the little dog steals the big dogs food. Walks would be appreciated although the dogs have the run of a large enclosed area of garden. Generally the dogs do their own thing, they just need supervising and company. We also have horses, chicken, turkeys, 3 farm cats and a plastic sheep on site but they are looked after by the groundsman so you dont need to worry about them.
