Sitter for 2 dogs and a lovely home just 40min from Central London in beautiful Surrey
I'm Kris and myself and my daughter Cara just moved to England after many years in Dubai. I work from home in business development and Cara who is 15, is at a beautiful school in Reigate. Her passion is horses and Cara's first choice is to be at the school stables or at home with her dogs. We like to travel and often find ourselves needing someone to care for our doggies. We thought we might give this a try instead of shipping them off to pet sitters around the area which is expensive and not great for the dogs as its a bit unsettling. Since they have just moved to England a few months ago, they already have had a lot of getting used to with the weather and new sites and smells!
Our Home & Location
We have a 3 bedroom home in Banstead Village just in back of the High Street so grocery stores and all kinds of shopping are minutes from the front door. The village posts a traditional english pub, Costa and Nero for Coffee, 3 Italian Restaurants, a great healthy choice restaurant called Fedo, Dominos and Pizza Express for the fast food fans and lots if nearby food delivery options available as well. Marks & Spencer Food is just out the gate and our village high street also has a Tesco and Waitrose. There is also a bus stop just outside the front gate and the nearest train station is a 10min walk away. A short bus ride to Sutton puts you on the train to London Victoria in 27 minutes. We are in Surrey so there are beautiful parks and hills with hikes and walks all around us. Some in walking distance and some just a short drive away. There is also a golf course nearby. Our home is super conveniently located and is well kept, beautifully decorated and neat and tidy. We have a guest bedroom with ensuite for our sitter as well as full use of the ground floor which includes kitchen, powder room, living room, conservatory / dining room and outside patio.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our two doggies are our main concern when we travel. Sydney and Banjo need to be fed twice a day, have water constantly available to them and mostly they need love and attention. They like a walk once or twice a day and the rest of the time they spend lazing around the house. These two need to be taken out regularly for potty breaks including just before bed and first thing in the morning. There is a communal garden just outside our patio gate where they go for quick potty breaks and it is our responsibility to ensure that we always clean up after them. Regular trips outside ensure no accidents happen in the house.
The dogs can be left outside on the patio if it isn't raining as they have a dog kennel but they cant be left outside alone morning and night. They are fine for up to 6 hours outside but ideally not at night and not day after day. We would usually leave them out for a few hours at a time and then do a potty break straight on our return home and then bring them back inside until we go off again. The dogs are not fans of being left alone outside so we don't like to do it all the time....
As for the home, we just need it kept clean and tidy. If any maintenance issues were to arise, then we would need them to be sorted out immediately and we will make provision for this. + More info
