Looking for a reliable, trustworthy and loving person to look after my 7 Dachshunds at various times during the year.
My name is Di and I am a 'stay at home' married mother with 4 children (18, 17, 12 and 9) and 7 small friendly dogs, ranging in age from 7 years to 3 months old. I am looking for someone to look after them, and our home, at various times during the year. The dogs live indoors and are a huge part of our life, so we are looking for someone to take good care of them. Experience of the breed would be handy, but not essential. As there are so many of them, they have a eating and bedtime routine and don't have 'the run of the house'. They mainly live in our large kitchen, purely because I spend all my time there too, but are allowed access to other areas if you are present....
A car is essential as we live in a hamlet with no local amenities except a large hotel (which does have a swimming pool, bar etc) and a pub/restaurant/reclamation yard (which is lovely!). Shops are two miles away in either direction although fridge will be well stocked. There are open fields to the back of our home and we live in a very pretty location. Our home is clean, organised and tidy with some modern facilities (Sky, Fibre Optic, Games consoles).
I have a cleaner who comes once a week but this may not be the case during the summer as she has children.
As two of my dogs are puppies, they cannot be left alone for more than 2-3 hours per day and I will have a routine in place for them for when I/you do leave them.
I just ask that my dogs are loved and home is clean and tidy for our arrival home.
I look forward to hearing from you!! + More info
Our Home & Location
Our home was built in 1920's and is very cosy, with two log burners (living room and kitchen). Beautiful views but within easy access of local market town and the city of Oxford.
Dogs not to be left more than 3 hours per day, but all are very friendly and very easy to look after....
Easy access to M40 and only 40 mins away from London. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Feeding dogs 3 times per day.
Dogs to be walked once each day for 30 minutes....
Keeping the dogs company and generally keeping their area (my large kitchen) clean and tidy. They are smooth coated dogs so don't make a mess.
Occupying the home, making sure it is tidy for our arrival home. + More info
