Holiday dog sitting
Hi everyone, welcome to our tribe! Penny is our 5 year old dog and Loki is our little kitten. We are an outgoing, active family. We spend as much time as possible outside exploring, climbing or swimming. Penny is our gorgeous, loving furbaby, she is everyone's friend and can't resist a snuggle. Loki is Penny's baby brother who does what baby brothers do best, insist on playing with their older sibling all of the time. We're looking for a reliable, caring person(s) to look after our furbabies whilst we visit family for a pre Christmas visit.
Our Home & Location
We live on the outskirts of Plymouth, although the area has a village feel to it, you're only a short 5 min bus/car journey away from big supermarkets, with a local Chinese takeaway, shop, post office and hair dressers a walk down the hill. It's a very family and dog friendly community, most of the neighbours have a pooch. You would be staying in our 3 bed mid-terrace house with a level back garden backing onto a field, WC downstairs and bathroom featuring a separate bath and walk in shower. There are several bus stops along the road.
There are many beautiful walks and beaches near us. We're a 15 minute drive away from Dartmoor, where there are free range ponies and some lovely walks. There are many beaches not too far away either and Cornwall is just across the bridge to be explored!
Responsibilities & Pets
You would be responsible for taking care of our beloved furbabies and house. Penny enjoys a lead walk around the area of an evening or morning (it doesn't matter which ) and an energetic game of 'fetch' with her tennis ball. When you play fetch, we advise taking TWO tennis balls, one to throw and one to tempt her to drop the first one for you to throw again. Penny LOVES water and can walk/run for hours if you go on an adventure anywhere. When feeding her we have some rules for her safety. If you take her for anything other than a lead walk, you must wait at least 30 minutes AFTER walking her before you feed her and wait at least an hour BEFORE walking her if she's eaten. When you have your own errands to run and Penny can't come too, we always give her a little treat before we leave. We always have a supply of bonios for this.
Penny is a strong willed dog, she may push her luck, you just have to be firm. She has some doggy Labrador friends called Harper and Harley who live across the road....
She is allowed on all of the furniture and may even try to hop into bed with you. If you'd rather she didn't, just tell her to get off. She will find somewhere comfortable. She is an affectionate little thing and loves snuggles and kisses!
Loki is an energetic little kitten, he loves his big sister huge amounts and they play fight throughout the day. Loki needs feeding and daily cuddles. + More info
