cocker spaniels in comfortable detached country bungalow with hot tub and stunning country walks
We have to travel on business from time to time and take the odd holiday when we can. We normally work from home so our dogs are used to having people around almost all the time and love cuddles. Our old dog isn't great away from home, she hates the car these days, so we prefer to give them a normal routine.
Our Home & Location
We have an easy to manage and spacious bungalow on the edge of a pretty village 3 miles from the market town of Newent. We live on a footpath so stunning walking on the doorstep but we also have a garden big enough that the dogs are happy just mootching about and don't need to walk. This allows for sitters who maybe aren't so active to come to stay. It's only in the winter when they don't really want to go outside that they need walking on a lead. We have a heated swimming pool open from end of April to early October and a hot tub in the garden that we are happy for people to use. Sitters have a comfortable double bedroom with a luxury bathroom next door. There is an office annexe attached to the house and occasionally our business partner comes and goes to that but does not need to come into the house itself. It's a lovely location and a bright house with a huge kitchen and pretty views.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have lots of plants in pots so there is a 15 minute watering routine once a day in the summer. Spring and autumn, every other day is fine. Generally, there is little to do other than feed and cuddle to dogs and let them out when they need it and feed the fish.
