Dog sitting for about 3-4 days
Hi. I'm looking for a House Sitter for a week I August to come and live in while my husband and I go for a short break abroad. The animals are used to company and love people. We live on the edge of the Highclere Estate.
Our Home & Location
We have a 3 bedroom Victorian farmhouse on the edge of the Highclere Estate (where they film Downton Abbey). Our landlords are the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon and are delightful. There are lots of nice walks around here, and of course, the Castle!
Responsibilities & Pets
Flossie needs one pill per day. She has Addison's Disease, but as long as she gets her pill in some cheese, she is perfectly healthy. Barney is pretty indestructible and loves people - oh, and if you give Floss her pill, Barn will queue up for some cheese himself. He is velcro-dog. Smudge has three legs, but gets around perfectly fine. Quentin is like Barney, if you sit down, he'll be on your lap in a flash. The large garden is fenced, so you don't have to take the dogs for a walk if you feel uncertain. They will quite happily play in the garden and wear themselves out. The cats need the food in their feeder topping up every so often. The dogs get fed twice per day. They all have dry food only.
