Derby Family home plus dog and cat
Julie and I are a late 50s and 60s couple with a large house and garden in Derby, and we have a very friendly 7 year old Golden Retriever called Barney. We now have two cats (brothers) called Rocky and Marshall who love cuddles and the garden! The cats and Barney get on very well and there are no squabbles at all.
Barney loves whatever you do for or with him. Walks, travel (we went to Scotland in the car with the caravan, and he was fine - stopping every couple of hours for a walk)...
he sits with us in the front room and just looks lovingly up at us! Barney sleeps in the hall, or in the flower essence room - doesn't like the bed we originally got him!
the cats spend a lot of time out, but will come for a cuddle, and if you're up for it, will sleep on your bed very happily. + More info
Our Home & Location
large detached house with big garden and 5 bedrooms, close to shops and a reasonable parks - there are better walks at a little distance as well.
Responsibilities & Pets
give Barney a decent walk daily, and feed dog twice a day. The cats need feeding more often, but they are working out routines as I write! The dog is fine being left for up to 4-5 hours. There are some good walks either from the house, or from nearby.
Barney loves to please, (especially for a treat!) and will play Barkour (Parkour for dogs!) on park benches, tree trunks....
There are plenty of walks from the house, but if you want to travel further, Barney loves cars, and we have a lead that clips into the seat belt mechanism if you need (don't have a big boot - he's 32 kgs) + More info
