House and Alfie sitter required
We are Jane, Sharyn and Alfie the dog.
I (Jane) work for an International seminar company and where possible do so from home though i travel to some of our events throughout the year....
Sharyn works for a law firm in Canary Wharf, London 3 days a week so is away during that time.
We have an allotment which keeps us busy and i (Jane) have two grown up daughters one of which is a professional footballer whose games we go and watch as often as possible.
We have family in New Zealand whom we visit once a year usually December/January time.
We prefer for Alfie to be cared for at home and have previously had family and friends stay in our home to do this.
We would be happy to leave you our car and you will need to cover the insurance cover cost. + More info

Responsibilities & Pets
Alfie is a medium sized, very relaxed dog, he loves company and is a great traveller in the car and very well behaved if taken out to pubs, towns, shops etc... Alfie also likes to sleep a lot!!!
He has a morning walk of around 45 minutes anytime before 9.30am and not before 7am, he will look at you as if you are crazy if you wake him up before that time :-)...
He likes his afternoon walk anytime from 4-6pm.
His breakfast can be either before or after morning walk and his dinner is at 6pm each day.
Alfie is happy to be left for up to 5hrs in the day so long as he gets good walks either side of that.
Alfie loves to have his tummy scratched and also likes to play tug with his toys if you are strong enough.
We ask that you enjoy our home and garden and that you leave our them as you find them please. + More info
