Black Lab & Springer Spaniel Housesit
We have a Springer Spaniel (Tessa) and Black Lab (Jemma) that we would prefer to stay at home rather than put into kennels whilst we are away. We live on just under an acre in rural Herefordshire just south of Hereford (Wye Valley Country) in an 1860s Victorian house. We have had one previous house sitter which was very successful and would prefer only verified, experienced individual/couple with references please.
Our Home & Location
We have a four bedroom house with Granny Annex and large garden. We are in the countryside, but only 2 min away from a large supermarket and 10-15min from the centre of Hereford and the train station. Hereford has good transport links to Cardiff, Birmingham and London and being a large market town has all the amenities you would expect - shops, restaurants, schools, leisure centres, libraries etc. We are also well placed to visit Brecon, Hay-on-Wye, Cotswolds etc
Responsibilities & Pets
Primarily, to be a companion and look after our two dogs - walk them, play with them and feed them each evening. We would like the grass cut (we have a ride on lawn mower for the front lawn) plus we would like the vegetable garden, greenhouse and pot plants to be fed/watered. As the fruit/vegetables ripen, it would be great if they can be picked and eaten!!
