Jasper sitter needed
We need a pet sitter to look after our 13 year old Schnauzer cross dog, who has heart problems, and doesn't travel distances well anymore. He's a lovely dog, full of character, barks a bit on first meeting, but ok afterwards. Most people who meet him want to take him home!
He can be left for up to 6 hours ( he sleeps a lot) so no problem going out without him.
Our Home & Location
We live in West Parley, which is approx 8 miles from the New Forest, Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole so is the ideal location to explore Dorset. Our house is a 4 bed detached,downstairs cloakroom and bathroom with shower over bath and with a small garden and greenhouse -which may have tomato and cucumber plants growing - and a local tesco is within 10 mins walking distance. Ferndown centre has a good selection of shops (tesco, Wilko, Iceland and 2 pet shops) and can be walked in about 25 mins. marks & Spencer food hall, sainsburys and Lidl are just a short drive away on the Ringwood road. Ferndown has its own leisure centre and a small theatre. Across the road from us (2 mins walk) is Poor Common where all the local dogs walk. Jasper is well known over there and has lots of friends who give him biscuits! There are lots of other walks in the area. A car isn't essential, the bus service not brilliant, but would enhance your experience. Dogs can go on all beaches 1st October to end of March.
Non smokers please
Responsibilities & Pets
Jasper is on daily tablets so the sitter would need to give him those. He has tablets 2 times a day. Walks for Jasper are really dependent on how he feels, but he usually has 2 shortish walks per day, sometimes only 1.
There is a greenhouse, which if tomatoes and cucumbers are still growing, would need to be watered. Benefit of course if any ripen they can be eaten!...
Would be lovely if sitter put bin out on a Thursday + More info
