One week sitter for 1 small dachshund
Off to AfrIca to meet partners family. My family are house sitting for last 2 weeks of holiday but I need someone just to do the first week. Small detached house with 8 year old dachshund to look after. Nice walks near by. Amazing shopping centre in Central Milton Keynes, & lots to explore locally.
Our Home & Location
3 bed detached house next to a lovely pub and a 15th century church. Nice walks in the area with a wood just 5 minutes walk from the front door! You only need a car if you want to get around Milton Keynes or out of the area, otherwise you could manage walks with Sophie and the supermarket from the front door. There is large supermarket for provisions etc approx 15 minutes walk from the house. Milton Keynes is situated 50 miles north of London, amid rolling countryside, and close to both Oxford and Cambridge, which are approx 30 miles away. Birmingham is approx 1 hour away by road and 45 minutes on the train. There is a main line train station in Central Milton Keynes, which is a 5 minute taxi ride away. Trains leave from Euston station in London, and take about an hour.
Central Milton Keynes has an amazing shopping Centre, with many famous high street brands, as well as some more unusual shops and places to eat....
Milton Keynes is known as the "city of trees", as we have many different varieties of trees, as well as parks and open farmland to wander in. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Sophie is a gentle small dog of the dachshund breed. It would be lovely if you had some experience of the breed, but not essential, as she is very easy... just needs a little lifting if going upstairs or in the car. She is a small lightweight dog, so this is not as onerous as it seems! I mostly need care of the dog, as she loves to be near people. She can be left in the house for up to 3 hours, but no longer. She only needs 2 short walks a day... and lots of cuddles and attention. She is a healthy, sweet natured girl, who will reward you with lots of affection.
The house is easy to keep clean and tidy and doesn't require anything in particular - using the dishwasher and pushing the hoover round before you go would be appreciated. The garden is not required, as I have engaged someone to cut the grass etc, whilst I am away.
