We have booked a last minute half term break in February so we are looking for someone to come and look after Elvis, our 2 year old black Labrador, as well as our house. Elvis is a nervous chap, particularly with men, but he loves company and is a fan of big long walks. We are looking for someone who is happy to take him a short way in their car as the best walks round here are a short drive away and he will need a good run once a day. He still pulls a bit on the lead but is good with the recall, so we rarely have him on the lead unless approaching a road or traffic. The house will still be busy when we are away with cleaners on one day, the bins needing to go out on a Monday night and come back in on Tuesday and other domestic excitements! The pool will still be closed. If you are a fan of black labradors and happy to be a hit gentle with out chap, we would love to hear from you. Ideally you could be here for 9am in the 16th and stay until early evening on the 23rd as our flight lands at 6pm - but we do have a local friend who could let him out on the 23rd is that was a deal breaker!
Our Home & Location
We live in 7 bedroom house behind electronic gates set back from the road. We also have a swimming pool with an automatic cover - but 'dosing' the pool is not the housesitters responsibility. We have a garden and a paddock and are about a mile from Liphook and close to Bramshott Close and the Devils Punchbowl for beautiful walks. There are lots of lovely pubs nearby for meals - or you can go a bit further to the Noah's Ark at Lurgashall. Our main feature is our black Labrador, Elvis!
Responsibilities & Pets
We have a black Labrador called Elvis who will be 18 months old when we need our housesitters this summer. We are currently training him and that will need to continue when we are away, just with the basics and he will need to be fed and walked and cuddled!
