Be fit, relaxed and loved
We are a semi- retired couple, both still active in a professional and voluntary capacity. We are keen to make the most of our free time by travelling to experience what the world has to offer. However, we are devoted to our pets, and, in our absence, we want someone to look after and care for them as we would.
Our Home & Location
We live in a comfortable, modern, heated, detached house near the Ashdown Forest, an area of outstanding natural beauty and home of Pooh Bear. Sitter(s) will have their own dedicated bedroom(s) and shower/bathroom. It has a large enclosed garden and outside security lights. It is a quiet neighbourhood on the edge of the town with shops a 10 minute walk away. Historic Tunbridge Wells is 6 miles away and Brighton and the south coast are 26 miles away. There is a train service to London that takes 50-60 minutes.
Responsibilities & Pets
Both dogs need walking for at least an hour daily off the lead in the local countryside. If necessary, this could occasionally be 2 shorter walks, twice a day. It is essential the sitter is prepared to drive; we will provide the vehicle and the insurance. Annie is old, slow and interested in smells. Megan, the labrador, runs continually during a walk. They are extremely friendly dogs and very obedient....
If they get muddy, they are washed down in their outdoor sink [with a hot tap!]. They readily get in and out of the filled sink - so no lifting is required.
They are fed twice a day and should only be left for a maximum of 5 hours. They can be let outside into an enclosed garden.
They are generally found lazing about the house and have a cat flap door to access the outside as they wish for toilet and exercise.
They need fed twice a day.
Poppy needs daily tablets and being an old cat she is mainly in the house on the heated floor.
We would request that you are non smokers and leave the house as tidy and clean as you found it. + More info
