Perfect for countryside lovers
I require people who will take as good care of my lovely dog as I. As I am a home-officed, consultant ecologist she spends most of her time with someone. Looking for a semi regular arrangement if possible or one offs.
Tilley is a very loving and well-behaved dog, good on and off the lead, fine with other dogs (though not so keen on cats!). I couldn't bear her pining in a kennels. She came from a rescue centre and has repaid my time training her and gaining her trust ten times over....
I am taking my grandchildren abroad in May so that's the dates selected but we could arrange some times before then when I can visit family and you can get to know the place and Tilley. + More info
Our Home & Location
It is a cosy 3 bed in a delightful location backing on to open fields in a rural though not isolated location. It is a semi-detached property with wood burner and gsh, some gym equipment, new bathroom, new tv.
It is within the Malverns Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and overlooks British Camp. A public footpath passes the property and you can be on the tops of the hills in half an hour simply by walking....
The village has a post office, doctors, pharmacist, well-equiped shop, butcher's, pubs etc. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Tilley can be left for quite prolonged times but does prefer someone around. The back garden is dog proof though she's never wanted to run away. Heaven forbid!
She's a staffy so does adore her walks, chasing and fetching a ball etc. There is a very extensive network of rural footpaths around here. However she doesn't need more than half an hour a day!...
The house is comfortable though no show house so relaxation is possible. I built a new patio this year at the bottom of the garden which is perfect for a sundowner on the swingseat watching the sheep in the adjacent field or the view of the hills. + More info
