Two Beautiful Huskies Seeking Active Sitter for Long Walls on Salisbury Plains
My husband Alec is in the military and sometimes sent abroad, and I am a photographer that works all over the globe - so we occasionally have dates that cross over where our two huskies needs some love in their own home!
Our Home & Location
Our home is a clean and simple New Build on a brand new estate in North Tidworth. It's not a military estate but there are plenty of soldiers and families around. Tidworth is right on the edge of the Salisbury Chalk Plains which are miles of countryside that you can hike on, which is shared with the army. So you might see the occasional tank on your dog walk! Our home is less than 10 minutes drive to Stone Henge and 30 minutes drive to historic city Salisbury.
Our house has 3 bedrooms, but we use the master as our bedroom, use one as a work space and the other is like the laundry/kit room! There are 2 showers, a bath and a little back garden with a mini standing fire pit.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our huskies will be living with you here! Loving on them is the most important roll in this house sit. We have a routine that Balto and Laika are used to and love, so we never send them away to kennels and ask that house sitters take care of them instead.
They are fed on a raw diet (which is in packets so not as gross as it sounds) at 7am and 6pm. They sometimes have bones in the garden or peanut butter Kongs to play with....
They get run twice a day for 40 mins on the Plains (this is a 4 minute drive from the house). Huskies are not the best at recall if they get distracted by a rabbit, so we have found a great large wild enclosed field that they roam free in each day. Funnily enough their recall is great in this field, we have a whistle that they associate with getting treats!
We also have a leash that you can attach to your waist and hike with them attached to you. They'll definitely help pull you up the hills. My husband hikes across the Plains with them once a week.
In the daytimes and evening the huskies just tend to sleep it off. Balto loves play fighting and wrestling with toys and Laika loves being cuddled. + More info
