House sitter for collie dog in Plymouth, Devon
We are Anne & Andy looking for a house sitter for our 10 year old collie, Maisie. We both work, and whilst out doing this we think Maisie catches up on sleep! We enjoy living in such a wonderful area with great walks, love travelling and exploring and keep fit/running.
Our Home & Location
Our house is a 4 bedroomed detached property just outside Plymouth. Our sitter would have their own double bedroom, family bathroom and use of a study. There's obviously a lounge, dining room and kitchen and a reasonable back garden. There are great local walks, and 2-3 miles from a national trust property and woodland walks. 2 Minutes walk to local transport to go into Plymouth which is great for exploring the Barbican area and Plymouth Hoe.
Responsibilities & Pets
Looking after Maisie - feeding, walking and giving cuddles and company. Maisie adores people, loves walks and playing with a ball. She also likes the occasional swim or play in the water. However - she doesn't much like other dogs, especially when she's on the lead. When running free she is able to deal with unwanted attention. She is also happy to spend a few hours on her own so no insecurity issues if left.
Keeping the house generally clean would be appreciated. Would be great if we could meet any possible house sitters in advance so we can explain Maisie's quirks!...
Watering the plants if its in the summer. + More info
