House sitter for Winston the Shitzu near London
We have an eight-year-old Shitzu dog called Winston who we have never put in kennels and my mother-in-law looked after him until she became too frail. We like him to remain in our home while we are away. He is the most affetionate dog but has a couple of health issues with his hips and eyes and needs very little walking, just playing!
Our Home & Location
We are in Broxbourne in Hertfordshire, a 10 minute walk along the river to the Station and half an hour into central London. We are very close to supermarkets, restaurants and nice walks. We have a three bedroom semi-detached house on the main road with a largish garden.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our only concern is Winston! He is very easy to look after, can be left on his own for up to 4-5 hours and needs very little walking because of his hips. He just goes round the corner to the river, always on a lead as although he is very friendly with people and children he's not so good with other dogs. He also needs his eyes cleaned each morning and drops administrated. He also has pain medication each evening with his dinner. He likes you to play with his toys and likes a run around on the grass. He is also I'm afraid very spoilt and does go on the sofa and sleeps at the end of the bed.
