House and Pet Sitter needed for our Crazy Canines!!!
We live in a lovely village called Sapcote in Leicestershire and are looking for a house sitter for when we are away to look after our two dogs, two bunnies and our home. Our pets are all rescues and are mostly well behaved. Smudge, our collie is completely deaf but very affectionate and loving. He loves to get messy and run around the garden and loves his walks although he can never be let off the lead. Indi is an Akita x German Shepherd and super adorable but she can go on a destructive mission when she is left alone – whether its 15 minutes or 3 hours - so we have plans in place to keep her busy and active when left. She is still quite young and is still training so is a work in progress but very rewarding!!! Our bunnies Rex and Nibbles, are laid back chilled out boys who love to sit together in the sun and love a good fuss. All of our pets are child friendly and get on with other dogs too.
We are more than happy for people to stay a few days extra before and after our holiday if needed, as long as you don't mind us bumbling around!!!
Our Home & Location
We have a lovely home in the village of Sapcote which has a small co-op, post office and pub. Its got easy road links to Leicester and Coventry and the nearest town of Hinckley is 10 minutes away. We have good motorway links and are right on the doorstep of the countryside. There are plenty of local walks and we are not to far from Bosworth Battlefield.
Our house is a 5 bedroomed detached house with enclosed gardens. We have 4 double bedrooms set up so plenty of room if you have a family you want to bring. Out the front of our house is a large green area, ideal to take the dogs for a quick blast around. We are in a new development which is quiet and peaceful.
Responsibilities & Pets
Walk and feed the dogs twice daily, feed the bunnies and clean out the tray every other day. Keep our home clean and tidy just as you would your own. Ideally, we are looking for someone who doesn’t mind staying with the dogs for as long as possible due to Indi’s behaviour. If you wish to take them in the car, Smudge is well known for his “singing” at full pelt throughout the journey!!!
