Lab love in Cranham, Cotswolds
Dave and I have recently moved from Cape Town to Cranham - we both work full time and try and get away most months for the odd long weekend.
Monty and Mango are our fur-kids, and are lucky enough to spend their week days at an equine farm up the road. We've had wonderful experience with Trusted Housesitters so far and have really enjoyed meeting positive, reliable and diligent people. We are looking for a responsible, clean living mature person or couple who enjoys being active and is looking for a quiet weekend to rewind and relax.
Our Home & Location
We live in Cranham village in a large detached house with enclosed garden and courtyard. Cranham offers multitudes of long walks (ending with good pubs) with the Cotswold Way long distance footpath nearby.
With amenities about a 10 minute drive away, you'll need a car to reach us to enjoy quiet time and time with our cuddle loving pooches. We are pretty house proud so would be looking to invite people into our home who share those values and enjoy the benefit of a house that's uncluttered, clean and tidy.
Responsibilities & Pets
Monty and Mango are both pretty easy going - they require breakfast and dinner, a long walk during the day and a final toilet walk each night. They can stay alone for up to 3 hours or so and then need to be let out to toilet... As you'll be sleeping over, they get put to bed with a biscuit and their blankets and that's pretty much it! Apart from that, they love cuddles and like to be with you - so that needs to be factored in as part of your day too.
So, a bit about them - Mango, or Pip as we have affectionately dubbed her, is a princess and loves to cuddle and give lots of love. She needs to be kept trim due to the early signs of arthritis ... so not too many biscuits for her! She loves playing ball and has awesome recall....
Monty on the other hand is a veritable Benjamin Button. Although he is ten, he loves playing and running around, especially after dinner. He needs a close eye as he is a typical scavenger and is led by his nose. Having said that he is one of the most placid Labs around and not much phases him. + More info
