I need a kind knowledgable couple/person willing to look after my three dogs and walk them twice daily and provide company. Water pots, greenhouse and patio containers (summer) and feed tortoises once a day. Security of the house and be around a lot. Dogs may be left for 3/4 hours maximum. Lovely detached house and secure garden in nice semi rural neighbourhood.
A cleaner comes once weekly to clean the house. Very nice and trustworthy man. There are neighbours each side and several local people who would help in an emergency....
Local vet who we can pay on our return. This also applies if anyone has to come out to make any repairs to anything in the house. We have full gas central heating. Two televisions and rather antiquated sound system!! Main line telephone and super fast broadband.
We are a three double bedroomed house and one small single. Main bedroom has shower and sink, slate double has a sink. There is a family bathroom with shower over bath and a separate toilet. There is a toilet downstairs. Fully modern laundry facilities in separate building.
Dogs - miranda stays on the lead unless in a secure field i.e. Polesden Lacey national trust fields. Lucky rushes a bit at other dogs but it's not a problem , Todd is not neutered and can be a bit up-front with other unneutered male dogs but it is not a problem. This is why I like experienced people. All dogs are lovely, kind and friendly family pets
The dogs are very precious to us and their safety and happiness is paramount. There are some dog rules that would be written out or explained. I.e. No dogs upstairs.
Plus commands and feeding instructions. We have had Housesitters for many years and there have been no problems but we feel it is better to keep the dogs at home rather than kennel them. + More info
