Cheddar Gorge, Somerset and 2 adorable pooches
We have two lovable rescue dogs, Dolly the three legged lurcher is the most perfect and easy going dog. Dolly will help you look after our little Thai rescue dog, Pizza. We also need sitters for various/any weekends so if you are available for any weekend, get in touch.
The dogs are incredibly easy to care for and after a morning walk you're free to go out and explore on your own. We're in a perfect location for all sorts of out door activities and local tourist spots.
Our Home & Location
Our home is right in the heart of Somerset. The village of Cheddar is a wonderful little spot. Nearby are some amazing countryside attractions, the famous Gorge, farms and lovely walks in the woods and by the reservoir and through English countryside. We're also very close by to Bristol, the beach, Wookey Hole and Glastonbury.
Due to the fact that Pizza is petrified of the road, we do require our sitters to be able to drive the dogs a short journey to take them for walks. We can sometimes provide a car if needed but do prefer you to have your own. Also, as Cheddar is not very well connected by public transport, a car will help you get to see the countryside and nearby attractions....
If you enjoy the outdoors then this sit would be perfect. We have some incredible walks nearby through woods, over hills and along the beach. Mountain biking is right on our doorstep, there's many a route from the house. Or if you prefer road cycling we have endless routes in every direction. We'd happily give you some direction and local advice. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Pizza has diabetes and needs to follow a specific diet and have daily injections. He's very good at this and doesn't resist in any way. He is sometimes wary of new people at first, but after a few chicken treats he's so loveable. Occasionally he may not seem like he wants to eat, gentle encouragement and patience will sort this.
Dolly is the perfect dog, loved by everyone and instantly your best friend. She'll spend most of the day on the sofa getting her beauty sleep but loves to get out and have a good run....
They're incredibly easy to look after and follow a very straight forward routine. We'll show you how to do injections for pizza so don't worry if you've not done into before. You'll also get to stay in our lovely home with loads of lovely walks, country pubs and tourist attractions nearby. + More info
