Bridie & Bella in West Yorkshire
I am a retired police officer and my wife still works full time as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner. We love our dogs but also enjoy our holidays especially to Australia where our sons live. Our daughters recently left home so we would like to try a trusted dog sitting service so we can enjoy our holidays with the assurance Bridie and Bella are being well cared for.
Our Home & Location
We live in a four bedroom detached house in semi rural penine village. We are about a 10 minute walk from the village centre, with a big co-op and post office etc. Several useful shops. We also have fabulous walks from our doorstep. We are also surrounded by delightful villages. We are in walking distance of dog friendly pubs. We have friendly neighbours who spoilt the dogs with biscuits, we have an enclosed harden at the back and open at the front. Huddersfield is 3-4 miles away. We are also near to railway stations if you wanted to a bit further afield.
You don't necessarily need a car, but we have a drive and garage that could be available for your use.
Responsibilities & Pets
Both dogs are very active and need walking frequently. They need a walk in the morning at about 8am for about an hour, come back and have breakfast. They go out again at about 2pm and then another short walk late at night. It is a 5 minute walk up to the field. There are plenty walking opportunities on the doorstep. Both dogs travel very well in the car if you wanted to go further afield, they are also good on buses and trains. If needed the dogs can be left for up to 5 hours a day.
