Dog Crazy Family
Hi we are Emma and Richard and we share our home part time with Richards 2 children and full time with our amazing dogs and 2 cats. I have been away 3 times in the past 3 years and because of the amount of animals we have, I have always asked friends but every time I have come home to not a very pretty picture. Dirty house, noise complaints from neighbours, still food left when the correct amount was left for dogs. This has left me very worried to go away again hence coming to this site to try.
Our Home & Location
We live in a 3 bed semi detached with a lovely long garden and everything more or less set out for the dogs. The house is a old house so a work in progress but it is always clean with a lovely super king bed in the master bedroom and a single bed in the other 2 bedrooms. There is a bathroom with seperate bath and shower also. The house is situated on the outskirts of Southampton in a area called Sholing we are on a main road with bus stops just across the road taking you to the town centre a train station about 15 mins walk and a shop next door. Southampton town centre has lots to offer from historic museums to real craft ale pubs the marina with lovely restaurants and a great shopping centre also. It ticks all the boxes for everything you might want to do.
Responsibilities & Pets
It is quite a busy household and sitters would be expected to feed, clean, care and love the animals firstly and most importantly. The dogs and cats are fed twice a day they are all fed a raw diet of which will all be prepared before and a feeding weight chart provided. The garden will need to be cleared of dog waste 3-4 times a day and cat litter cleaned once a day. Sitters can leave the house unattended no problem as all the dogs are great to be left all I do ask is they are not left to continually bark and annoy neighbours. My house has a lovely workshop I have had made that accommodates some dogs just at bed time and some indoors the workshop also has another kitchen and washing machine for all the dogs food and washing requirements.
