Urgent cover wanted as have been let down for our deaf dog and hens
We are urgently looking for a house sitter to care for our deaf 4 1/2 year old collie cross Geoff and 3 hens as we have been let down with just over two weeks to go before we go away.
Our Home & Location
Small semi in quiet rural location, 7 miles to the market town of Melton Mowbray, easy driving to Leicester, Nottingham, Oakham, Stamford and Uppingham. On the edge of the beautiful Vale of Belvior, 25 minute drive to Rutland Water. Good village pubs (walkable) and local cafes (driveable). There are no shops within walking distance - nearest is 4 miles. There is an hourly bus to both Melton and Nottingham. We live in a friendly community and there will be lots of neighbours for you to call on for help and cover for Geoff if you want to have a day out.
Responsibilities & Pets
Geoff is deaf, hence the name. Despite this he is easy to manage and a delight. He is a big lad and full of beans. He's well trained but powerful so needs someone who can handle that. He has a small repertoire of hand signals that he understands. He has 2-3 walk per day plus loo last thing at night. He's on a home made diet.
Our hens will need letting out in the morning, closing up at night and making sure they have plenty of food and water....
House plants will need watering and some plants in the garden and greenhouse. There should be a supply of some fresh organic veg. + More info
