Pet sitter required for two dogs and some chickens.
We are a couple in our 50's living in the beautiful cathedral city of Salisbury in Wiltshire.
We are looking for a sitter (single or a couple) to live in and care for our 2 dogs and 3 hens while we spend Christmas with our daughter in Kingston upon Hull from the 22nd to 29th December inclusive, 2017.
Our Home & Location
We live in a 4 bedroom detached house in a quiet cul de sac, about a 20 minute level walk from Salisbury city centre. We have the best of both worlds, a rural setting but close to town. Salisbury Cathedral and The Close and its buildings are well worth a visit. Salisbury has plenty of restaurants, a cinema, and shops. We are surrounded by lovely walks through fields and by Old Sarum, with spectacular views. Stonehenge is about 20 minutes by car. The seaside town of Bournemouth is about a 45 minute drive, Southampton 30 mins. The house has wi-fi, and includes an open plan living and dining area with a double height ceiling, a garden and a driveway for your vehicle.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have two nine year old dogs, a Trailhound called Jilly and a little cocker spaniel called George. They enjoy an hour or longer morning walk in the surrounding countryside, and then are fine to be left for a few hours if you want to go exploring. They usually have a walk before tea and a quick round the block walk first thing in the morning and last thing at night. George has been blind since birth and this is not a problem for him. He regularly walks off lead and has great recall! They are friendly with both people and other dogs. The hens would just need feeding daily, freshly laid eggs are for you!
