Spring in south-west London
Our two, well-behaved older greyhounds need someone to look after them in our home in south-west London. The boys are very lazy and do not need much exercise, but would be happy to cuddle on the sofa or visit the pub with you. You will enjoy modern living in the centre of historic Kingston, with the river and fantastic shopping just a few minutes' walk away.
Our Home & Location
We live right in central Kingston, just 5 minutes' walk away from the bustling pedestrianised shopping area, daily fruit & vegetable market with food stalls and the Bentall centre. The river is only a few more steps away with easy access to Hampton Court and Richmond. We are also within walking distance of Richmond Park. Kingston is a 30-minute rail journey from London Waterloo, and the station is just under 10 minutes' walk from our house.
Housesitters will have access to two full bedrooms, each with its own en suite (one with shower, one with bath). We have a good-sized garden and there are several parks nearby for easy dog walking.
Responsibilities & Pets
Morning dog walks of about 30 minutes, plus evening walks of about 15-20 minutes. During the week, a dog walker will take the boys out at lunchtime so you will have most of the day to yourself. At weekends, an additional short walk at lunchtime is needed. Feed the dogs two meals a day, in the morning & evening. The boys take pills at bedtime but they eat them easily.
