Dogs and cat sitting near the New Forest!
We are looking to travel and live abroad for 3 months from September 2018 to December 2018. We have 2 dogs and a cat. Our dogs are used to having people at home, however they are happy to be left alone in the house for a few hours a day. My husband works from home and therefore is at home with the animals. However, we do go out on day trips and the dogs a very happy as long as they are together. We have a 3 bedroom detached house with pool (if you would like to use the pool there would be a running cost). We live just minutes from the New Forest and about a 5 min drive from the beach. Our local supermarket is a 5 min drive, or 20 min walk. New Milton has it's own train line travelling to Bournemouth, Southampton and London Waterloo (1 hour 40 mins). There is also a bus route.
We would need a deposit of 1000 GBP which would be reimbursed at the end of the 3 months (May be negotiable depending on references).
