Pet Sitter wanted for 2 cats and 2 dogs. lovely House located in WD3 Herts, UK
We are a mature professional couple in their 40s and 50s. Our children are grown up and have flown the nest so its just us and our 4 fur babies now! While we love our animals dearly we also like to travel so we regularly need pet sitters to help us while we are away.
Our Home & Location
We live in a newly refurbished 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom detached house at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on in the Loudwater private estate. Rickmansworth with its shops and metropolitan train line to London is a 5 minute drive away. It takes about 30 minutes by tube to get to Baker Street. We are 5 minutes drive from some wonderful walks and attractive chiltern hills countryside. The estate has private gates, and it is a leafy, attractive , quiet , safe and wonderful place to live for us and out pets. We have a large semi wooded garden and our house backs onto woodland. in the last few years we have fully renovated the house with new kitchen, bathroom, en suite, heating systems, electrics, alarm system, everything really has been renewed. The house is cosy with an open fire for winter evenings and it has a balcony overlooking the garden and a patio for outdoor eating in summer.
Responsibilities & Pets
You would need to walk our dogs twice a day. at least 1 hour in the morning and at least half an hour in the afternoon. All 4 animals need to be fed twice a day. While our cats are free to roam outside all day, we generally shut the catflap at around 6-7pm as there are foxes in our garden and I dont like the cats out at night. we let the cats and dogs out by 8am latest evey morning. All the animals are house trained, but the cats do have a litter tray in the utility which is rarely used but does need occasional cleaning. Our dogs travel well in the car and would rather be out in the car with us than shut in at home. The dogs can however be left for a maximum of 6 hours at a time during the day or evening. You would need to keep the house clean, as you would your own. We have a gardener so you would not need to do anything with the garden. The dogs would need to be let out in the garden for regular wees between walks and the back door can be left open in good weather during the day. In wet weather the dogs need to be towel dried and feet cleaned to remove mud before they come in. Once clean they are allowed to cuddle with us on the beds and sofa. Use of our land rover may be available for some sits, for pet sitters with a clean licence and for local journeys only.
