Dog carers who want to be loved by our Border Terriers and Jack Russell
Our three loveable little dogs need someone to care for them as part of the family. They do not need long walks but they do need lots of cuddles. We have a very large garden with plenty of space for them to run around. They are treated as part of our family and have access to all parts of the house - including sleeping at the foot of the bed! Ideally we are looking for mature sitters who will love our boys as we do, and have police checks and references. Because of the special nature of our listed cottage, we must request non-smokers and additional guests by prior agreement only.
Our Home & Location
Our 17th century thatched cottage, 10 miles north of Winchester, is set in 1.5 acres down a secluded lane, but within walking distance of Whitchurch town centre. The garden is totally enclosed but we do not leave the dogs outside when there is no-one home. The River Test runs parallel to the cottage and provides a nice walk for the dogs. We are close to Watership Down which provides wonderful views over Hampshire and dog walking opportunities.
Responsibilities & Pets
The boys need to be fed once a day, and played with, plus lots of cuddles! The chickens need to be fed twice a day, tucked up at night, let out in the morning and will reward you with lots of gorgeous eggs! We provide plenty of instructions on how to look after everything as we spent many years doing very successful home exchanges.
