We live in the New Forest in a semi-detached cottage ( we own the other semi and run that as a holiday cottage, which will be looked after by a friend). The forest is within walking distance. We will be travelling to Italy for a family holiday. Dog is a needy Border Terrier, well trained off the lead in the forest but a bit yappy in the garden when people come. and go. We have two very loving ginger and white cats and three large chickens.

Responsibilities & Pets
All animals to be watered daily. Cats fed twice a day, dog once but also small amount of biscuits for breakfast. Chickens need layers pellets top up if necessary and are fed a couple of handfuls of corn at night. Chickens let out about 7am in the morning and go to bed about 9 pm. Dog helps with this process and will remind you. If you wish to go out before 9pm chickens can be tempted with meal worms, grapes or cheese to go in the pen earlier .Dog can be walked daily.
