House sitter and dog walker near Stratford upon Avon. Possibly 23/12/19 - 30/01/20
My husband Ray and I, need someone to look after our lovely and very affectionate Jack Russells, Nellie and Min, mother and daughter. They are very easy to look after, needing a walk once a day and to have company in the evenings, snuggled up to you preferably. Actually they like to sit on your lap at any opportunity they get.
When we go away, they come everywhere with us in our Motorhome, here and in France. This time, however, we have been invited out to New Zealand, to a wedding, for five weeks and are finding it difficult to leave them behind as we love them dearly. We know they will be far happier at home with someone who loves and understands dogs. If you have any worries about the dog’s health, then our family are not far away, all well qualified in the veterinary world.
Our Home & Location
We live a few miles outside Stratford upon Avon, in a village which has a very good pub, a well stocked shop and post office. We are very lucky to have very friendly and helpful neighbours. Our house is three bedroomed (one double and one single available for visitors). We have a small, easily maintained garden with a pleasant patio to sit out on when the weather is sunny. During the summer months there will be some watering of pots, tubs and some bedding plants. In the winter there is nothing to do other than fill up the bird feeders.
Our village is a great base from which to visit places of historical interest. Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford is just up the road, Warwick Castle, the Cotswolds and many stately homes close by. There are lots of good ‘pub walks’ locally too....
London is only an hour by train, from Banbury. + More info
