Doggie sitting in lovely, leafy Enfield (North London)
We are a couple in their mid fifties who love our dogs, but like to travel. We have a nice home on the edge of north London, close to both the Overground (Enfield Chase) and Underground (Oakwood) stations with direct access into central London within 25 minutes. There are great bus routes and a well serviced town centre, along with access to the M25 (5 minutes to junction 24). We both still work, but it is our own business, so we are able to travel and like to go away about once a month (lucky us)!
Our Home & Location
We have lived in our home for over 28 years, we like to think that it is a nicely presented home and I am a little fussy about cleanliness, (we have a cleaner who visits on Fridays) we are also both very tidy. Our dogs are allowed on our sofas and they have the run of the house, but sleep in the kitchen overnight, as I don't like them on the beds. You would have use of all of the house, excepting our bedroom and ensuite. This does however leave you the choice of three other bedrooms and two more bathrooms, as well as extensive living accommodation and a well equipped kitchen. We have a small but perfectly formed garden and my husband is a keen gardener.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our dogs are lovely (everyone says that!) They are calm and well behaved, although they do bark when the doorbell rings! They sleep for most of the day and are used to being left for short periods of upto 4 hours. They like to be walked for about 20 minutes each morning and evening and enjoy popping into the garden.
They have drops in their food once a day as this stops burn marks on our lawn. Poppy loves cuddles and is a very lovable dog, Tiggy (the princess) is very independent, she likes to be stroked, but she is not a lap dog and doesn't like to be picked up or cuddled. We have both dogs chipped and registered with a local vet, they are also insured.
