Our Welcome Guide for our house sitters is all prepared. All the animals are registered with our local veterinary practice and my daughter lives locally for any extra guidance. We have a Kelpie/Collie Cross dog 2 years old who can be timid but is very gentle and loves catching a ball. She has a cosy kennel and purpose built run outside. Jackie the Jack Russell is a real cutie, 5 years old, loves to play and cuddle and curling up in his basket near the kitchen. We have 6 acres at the back of the house so now need to walk on the road the dogs can get plenty of exercise in the field. I also have an office cat Mr Wesley who has a basket in my office opposite the Little Barn and has a cat flap so is very self sufficient.. The horses live out and do need checking twice a day and feeding hay . I have horsey friends renting some of my land who are on call to assist if needed and will be around most days so they will give you guidance.
