Looking for trustworthy , reliable and frequent house sitters
Hi , we would like to find some reliable house sitters as we travel abroad a lot , sometimes we take our dogs and sometimes they stay here with a friend or go to kennels.
We have a large barn conversion with just over an acre of garden in the countryside....
Connie is a rescue dog who is about 15 ( we think !!) , she has arthritis so no longer goes for walks but spends her time mooching around the garden . She is v friendly , loving and easy to look after. Rufus is a giant Schnauzer who is 4 and is a very big character. Eventually we would like to find a house sitter who feels confident to look after him but initially it would just be Connie. Rufus is a gorgeous dog but is very exuberant so he would always need a very experienced dog person to look after him .
Lily the cat is 18 years old and doesn't really like to go out much now , hence uses a litter tray which obviously needs to be cleaned daily .
The ducks and chickens have a large area with a pond and just need to be fed and put to bed each night.
I think our house is very cosy and welcoming and we are very keen to find reliable house sitters who will be able to look after our pets and house regularly. Anyone who likes gardening and mowing lawns would be a real bonus !! .
From January we really need someone to look after Rufus too. He is a gorgeous dog but very strong and a real character . He needs a confident person as he has a BIG personality and likes to think he is in charge. He loves other dogs but hates bikes and motorbikes and no matter what we do he tries to chase them and jump at them !! He is a rescue dog and is incredibly loving. He hasn't been around children very much ( ours are grown up ) but I'm sure as I can be that with supervision ( obviously ) he would be fine . + More info
