Tim and Elaine
Hi from Dylan, Skye, Pug, Elaine and Tim. We all live in the beautiful county of South Shropshire just on the edge of the conservation area within the Corvedale: a stones throw from Ludlow and Craven Arms. As well as being accidental landlords, we are both actively retraining in the respective fields of accounting and counselling. We both enjoy our pets enormously in addition to holidays overseas, visiting the theatre and we are active within a local support group where we experience many social gatherings. We are new to the idea of pet-sitting so are fascinated with the thought of meeting like minded animal-loving people. Predominantly we would be looking for someone to care for our pets while we are away on holiday.
Our Home & Location
We live in a small village, Diddlebury, approx. 5 miles from Craven Arms. We have a large(ish) garden through which runs a small stream. We also have a relatively large(ish) pond with an island and an adjoining bridge. A summerhouse provides a beautiful outlook over the pond as well as some much needed peace and quiet. The market town of Shrewsbury and the historic towns of Telford and Ironbridge are approx. 20 miles away but offer a variety of interesting activities. Closer to home can be found Ludlow which is garnering an enviable reputation for culinary offerings and expertise. The accommodation we are offering is a newly refurbed guest bedroom and en-suite located in the main house.
Responsibilities & Pets
Predominantly looking after our three pets in a familiar environment through feeding and social activities (playing). In particular Dylan and Skye thrive on human interaction including ball activities in the garden. We have approx. 1.5 acres of garden for the dogs to exercise and play. It is possible to circumnavigate the village offering a 'walk' on leads (approx 30 - 40 mins). Should any pet-sitters be keen gardeners, then we feel confident that we could accommodate this also. Dylan and Skye are very active dogs requiring, at times, almost constant attention. Skye (also known as the 'fun' police) can be envious of Dylan if she feels she is being neglected!
