House and Dog Sitter required
We are going away to celebrate a big birthday and would prefer the dogs to be looked after in their own home. Alex is now retired having worked in the Ski industry for 30 years. Ande is currently working as a gardener. Our hobbies include tennis, golf, horse riding and dog agility as well as travel.
Our Home & Location
Our house is situated a few minutes from Chichester Harbour and is within a 5 minute walk of the town of Emsworth with many independent retailers and several excellent pubs and restaurants. Good rail and road links to Portsmouth and Chichester (also London) which has great shopping and the famous Chichester theatre. If you like beaches (the dogs do) then Hayling Island and the Witterings are nearby. The house is detached with a pleasant garden, large kitchen/diner overlooking the garden. The sitting room has a log burning stove.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have 3 dogs, Jonty is 3 years old and is a Sheltie cross, Rascal also 3 is a Welsh Terrier and Gertie 2 years is a Sheltie. We would like them to have a good walk each day, fed and cuddled! Previous experience of terriers would be an advantage. They are reasonably active dogs and all three do compete in dog agility so would suit an active person/couple. They can be left happily in the house alone for up to 4 hours. The garden shouldn’t need any maintenance as away in the winter. Normal general household daily chores.
