Whippets in Wigan
Our family comprises me, Jayne, my husband Andy and our two sons - Will, 8 and Ben, 3 - as well our our two whippets, Poppy and Tally and two hamsters. Andy and I both work full time, Andy is a paramedic and I am a Commercial Manager for an engineering services company so we appreciate our holidays. We like to get away at weekends in our campervan and we have a couple of longer breaks each year too. Whenever we can we take our dogs with us but it’s not always practical so we are hoping to find the right housesitter(s) to look after our dogs from time to time. Very occasionally we will go away with my parents who also have a dog, Mickey, and on these occasions we will have three dogs that will need a sitter.
Our Home & Location
Our house is a well presented four bed detached with a large garden that is not overlooked on a pleasant street consisting of other similar properties. Our neighbours are typically professional young families. There are some pleasant walks within walking distance or a very short drive away and some nice places a little further afield. Both Manchester and Liverpool are very easily accessible both by train or car.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our dogs will need company throughout the day and a short walk every day or so. They are older now so can cope without a daily walk but ideally they should be offered at least a short walk each day. They will need to be fed twice a day. We would be ok with them being left occasionally for up to 4 hours at a time. The hamsters will just need feeding every couple of days and daily water changes.
