Sitter needed for 23 Jan - 14 Feb 2019 West Berkshire
We are off to Canada ski-ing on 23 Jan. We are looking for house and dog sitter(s) for our two boys. One dog is old with back problems (and may not still be with us by January) - he doesn't need much exercise, but does need TLC and attention. The other one is the opposite - young and full of energy.
We like to meet you and show you the house and local walks, so it would be helpful if you could arrive on 22 January.
Our Home & Location
The house is easy to run. There are 2 pubs (1 good for food and the other good for beer) in the village and 2 local shops. We are situated about 6 miles from the town with a wide range of supermarkets, restaurants, shopping centre, multi screen cinema etc. There are many country pubs in the area serving great food and drink and West Berkshire Brewery is only a few miles away.
The house is a 4 bed detached with a small garden, situated in a quiet close and overlooking fields. Nearby woods and fields for walking and cycling, although waterproofs and wellies essential at this time of year.
Good neighbours who will help out if necessary....
Not far from Reading/Oxford/Southampton. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We are looking for someone responsible and reliable to look after our two boys, walk them twice a day, and look after our home. The older dog is on daily pain killers for a slipped disc, he only needs walks of about 10 minutes. The younger one is 2 and a half, with loads of enthusiasm and energy and loves everyone. He benefits from longer walks and play to burn off some exuberance.
You will need a car as we are in a village and the buses are infrequent. Also the vet is approximately 5 miles away, should a visit be necessary....
Non-smokers only please. + More info
