A sitter for 2 weeks for 2 little dachshunds and one rabbit
Having lost my pet dog of 17 years before Christmas, I adopted 2 little dachshunds from the Dogs Trust in May. Gentle walks and lots of fuss and cuddles was in their "job description" which suited me. I love animals and also have a pet rabbit who has the run of upstairs. The dogs are not allowed upstairs but have the run of downstairs and also the enclosed garden. I wouldn't have gone on holiday so soon after adopting but I am visiting an elderly Aunt in Canada for two weeks and feel if I don't see her now I may never get the opportunity again. She is a very important person in my life especially when growing up in Canada in the 50s/60s.
Our Home & Location
I live very near bus stops at the top of my road with access to all parts of Medway. There is a Tennis Academy and Gyms at the top of the my road. Huge Tesco Extra is about 15 minute walk away as well as an Iceland, Pets at Home, Poundstore, B&Q etc in the Trading Estate across the main road at the top of my road. There is also a skating rink. Swimming (Splashes) inbetween Gillingham and Rainham. Riverside Park is a short drive away, I used to walk down there regularly with my other dog and before I needed knee surgery. My 2 bedroom house is in need of up-grading but it has all one needs to be comfortable and is clean. I have freesat TV and broadband WiFi available. I also have off road parking.
Responsibilities & Pets
The care of the animals is paramount. Dogs - feeding twice a day (am and pm) with clean utensils. Walk twice a day either locally (there's a green behind me) or the woods at the top of my road or the river at the bottom of my road (short drive away). Regular brushing and lots of cuddles and fuss. Their waste regularly cleared in bags from the garden to the dog waste bins in the green behind. The rabbit's cage is cleaned out twice a week and she has fresh hay regularly. Her pellets first thing in the morning and fresh greens/veg in the evening when I lock her in overnight. My 2 bedroom terrace has a small garden but I do have a few plants in pots that will need regular watering. Other than that I don't expect anything else expect to find the place roughly as I left it.
