House sitting for 6 dogs.
We are a family of three from St Helens in Merseyside. I am David, 43 years of age, my wife Joanne, 43 years of age and our daughter, Sienna who is 12 years of age. We have 6 adorable dogs who all live in doors and are an integral part of our family. They are all well behaved and will be perfectly happy with garden exercise whilst we are on holiday. Our home is comfortable, secure and very well maintained and we are looking for somebody to live in and look after our home and dogs for 10 days, from the 28th July when we are on holiday.
Our Home & Location
We live in the town of St Helens. Our house is a comfortable and modern 4 bedroom detached home with a large rear garden and a yard area for our dogs. The road is a quiet cul-de-sac with friendly neighbours and we are not overlooked from the back as there are allotments to the rear of our property. We have a range cooker in our kitchen, wood burner in our lounge, power shower, integral garage for bikes etc and a very relaxing conservatory which has afternoon and evening sun. The town centre is 5 minutes away via car and there are numerous buses at the top of the road. Manchester, Liverpool and Warrington are all accessible via the train station in the town centre and there are numerous parks, leisure retail parks, shops and site seeing opportunities all within the town.
Responsibilities & Pets
All our dogs are fed on a naturally raw diet and holistically raised. The person(s) therefore would need to be comfortable around raw meat which we buy in tubs from Natural Instinct. Our daily routine is generally as follows:
All dogs are let out together for toileting no later than 8am.
They are then brought back in and settle down whilst the yard is cleaned up and bleached.
We have our breakfast etc and then the two youngest dogs are fed.
Depending on the weather, the dogs are brought out in groups of two for 10-15 minutes exercise on the
Late morning the older dogs are fed.
5-6pm all dogs are fed.
We generally put the dogs out for their bed time toileting at 11pm....
Other duties include, watering back garden in hot spells, putting the bins and plastics out and keeping the house in order. + More info
