cornwall 12 days flexible dates adorable pointer dog..
we want to be away for about 12 days some time in the above period...hello...we are looking for a dog loving responsible couple to look after our 5 year old pointer kippy...
kippy cannot be left at home on his own..or in the car in car parks....
so he is a constant companion.. but he has a lovely temperament and is a joy to be with,
he has a walk earlyish in the morning and another later on in the afternoon...or one long one..
there are lots of lovely walks very close by.. including river and coast path..and national trust woodland walk trelllisick is not far away..
we would prefer sitters who already know Cornwall .. and would enjoy the many and varied local and national trust walks around the falmouth river area..rather than long drives in the car exploring further afield. + More info
Our Home & Location
we live in a modern home in a cul de sac, so quite quiet.
the house is south facing with a comfortable deck with beautiful view overlooking the creek and boatyard......
our house is a few minutes walk from local village shops including general shop with veg ..a butcher a paper shop, and a village pub.
there are other riverside pubs nearby that welcome dogs...
national trust property trelissick gardens is a 15 minute drive away which has a lovely long riverside walk.
there is a beach nearby where dogs are allowed..which can be incorporated into a coast path walk.
we have a very quiet tenant living below the main living area.. so we always keep the television/radio down.
the garden is private with a garden shed with sofa.. ideal for afternoon tea. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
kippy is the main responsibility, as he cannot be left home alone...and walking him daily on local walks.
sadly dogs are stolen regularly in cornwall ..so we never leave him in a car park..even with locked doors....
he must be on the lead on roads.. but is fine off the lead elsewhere..always looking back to check where you are..and very well behaved with other dogs. + More info
