Heaven on Earth in the Surrey Hills -2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 bantams
Hi, I'd like to find a trusted house sitter so I can go away with peace of mind that my home and pets are being treasured and enjoyed by animal and country lovers.
Our Home & Location
This is a lovely home nestling in the Surrey Hills. It adjoins Forest Enterprise land, and we can walk fro miles without crossing a road. Just across the road is the Sheapleas (Surrey Wildlife Trust land) for more miles of wonderful walking. A mile away is a new Opera House at West Horsley place. There are Polesdon Lacey, Hatchlands and Clandon Park - National Trust properties right on our doorstep. Guildford - a gorgeous city - is 20 minutes drive away. Dorking - 15 minutes drive away is full of quaint antique shops to explore. At home I have the basic Sky TV package, and Wifi (not the fastest, but not too bad either). I have a beautiful garden and its very peaceful and quiet.
Responsibilities & Pets
I have two dogs, Hugo and Bodhi (more later). They need love, company, food, water and walks. They can be left for 2-3 hours daily, but only occasionally for 4 or 5 hours at the most. They need a minimum of 1 hour walking per day and plenty of extra trips round the garden and playtime. I have a cat, Louis who mostly lives upstairs, sometimes downstairs, and occasionally enjoys the out doors! He uses cat litter which needs part changing daily. He is on thyroid medication and easy to give medication to. He is very affectionate and gorgeous and loves a cuddle. There are two bantam chickens who need a weekly good clean and daily food and water. I feed garden bird - goldfinches, coal tits, long tailed tits, lesser spotted wood peckers etc etc.....I'd love you to keep feeding and encouraging them.
Hugo - 13 year old Border Collie. Gorgeous, handsome, calm, loves his food, not overly energetic! Will do anything for food!...
Bodhi - 2.5year old Border Collie cross. Lively, very energetic and super bright. Loves his walks and lots of training. Very affectionate but nervous of children. Easily distracted with various named toys.
Louis - 18 year old British Long hair. Stunning boy. His age is simply unbelievable. + More info
