Dogs, chickens & housesitting in Hampshire
Hi! We are off on holiday(s) and would love the peace of mind to know that our dogs, chickens and home are being cared for in our absence.
Our Home & Location
Our home is dates from the 15th Century and is full of character. We are in a village in the Itchen Valley, surrounded by beautiful countryside and river walks, but only a 10 minute drive or bus ride into Winchester. We have a lovely big garden with gas BBQ (if its warm enough)! The town of Alresford is a few minutes drive too, and the pub is next door!
Responsibilities & Pets
We have 3 lovely rescue dogs, all very friendly, but quite exciteable. They all love a walk and need to be walked every day.
Max, being 13 years old now, can only manage a couple of 10-15 min walks a day. The younger 2 are high energy so need at least an hour or two. Max is gorgeous, big and fluffy, sleeps most of the day, totally harmless but with a very loud and persistent bark. You don't need a doorbell. Chilli is super bright, quite needy and bouncy, and will be your best friend if he gets to sit on your lap. Winnie is totally laid back but is also keen to launch herself either up for a kiss or onto a lap, despite being far too big. They are all used to being left for a few hours once they've been walked....
The chickens are in an enclosure and just need letting out each morning and putting to bed at night, feeding and collecting the eggs. Most of them are very friendly and will let you have a cuddle (you'll know which ones aren't keen)! + More info
