Home/pet sitter needed
We are looking for someone honest and reliable to look after our dogs/poultry/degu when we go away for weekend breaks and annual holidays. All of our dogs are rescues and for that reason putting them in to kennels has never been an option. Especially with my eldest dog who is almost 13 years old, she had a tough start to life so being able to stay in the comfort of her own home would be the ideal situation. The ducks and chickens have a large area and just need to be fed and put to bed each night.
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.
Our Home & Location
Three bedroom semi detached cottage with plenty of parking. 6 miles from Taunton town centre with Bishops Lydeard village just around the corner. It is the home of the West Somerset railway where the steam train leaves Bishops Lydeard and finishes at Minehead. You can also see the steam train go by from our property! There is a local farm shop and plenty of rural pubs within driving distance. Also lovely beaches and countryside walks close by.
Responsibilities & Pets
Dogs to be fed and exercised in the garden. No need to take them out on walks when we have plenty of room for them to run around off the lead :) plus three dogs on a walk can be quite a handful so it’s easier if they remain on our property.
Ducks and chickens to be fed and put to bed at night to keep them safe from foxes. 9 times out of 10 they will put themselves to bed so it’s just a case of closing the door. Our degu doesn’t need any care just a little nosey to make sure he is doing ok. He will always have enough food and toys to keep him entertained when we are away.
