Confident, caring House/pet sitter needed
Hi my name's Ella and I live with my partner Karl. We have a 2 year old boy, 2 friendly giants, Harvey and Charlie which are Italian cross Spanish mastiffs and 2 cats Matilda and quincy. We live in a modest 3 bedroom house near the centre of Southampton with very good neighbours around.
Our Home & Location
Being close to the city there are plenty of links in and out or it would be a 5 min car drive to West quay. We are close to just about everything. The beach is a 5 min drive away, the new forest is about a 30 minute drive and there are country parks also 5 min drive. Southsea, winchester and Bournemouth are also close by and worth a visit. However a car is not essential as there is a local town centre with banks, a few shops, a Sainsburys and a leisure centre all just down the end of the road. We also have 2 large parks to walk the dogs around. Our house has 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 2 reception rooms and a large open plan family room/kitchen. The garden is a good size for the dogs and hasn't been landscaped yet so there's no worry about the animals making a mess. There is parking on the road and drive way if needed.
Responsibilities & Pets
We would like someone who is very confident with larger dogs to stay in our home and look after the animals. The dogs need walking twice a day however they are getting older now so they can't manage big treks. Harvey is also a fair weather walker. Charlie is deaf so needs to be kept an eye on when walking as he can't hear you call him back. Both dogs are incredibly loyal, well trained and loving animals and are unbelievably patient with the baby and very good with people. We need someone who is confident and strong to manage the dogs who doesn't mind the odd drooling. The cats are fairly sufficient and sleep most of the time but do like attention in the evenings.
