Colourful, comfy family home 8 miles from Edinburgh
Looking for either a single person, couple or family to take care of our well behaved, gentle, social Labrador as their own whilst also enjoying the local countryside, East coast of Scotland's beaches and the City of Edinburgh.
Our Home & Location
Our home is a first floor upper villa apartment in a local council residential area. The area is not hugely affluent but I’ve lived here for over 15 years with my disabled son without any problems. Local people are welcoming and friendly, as you’d expect of Scots but from time to time you may notice some litter or children playing in the streets.
Within a 5 minute walk there are buses into Edinburgh, the Scottish Borders and East coast. Within a 5-10 minute drive there is access to the A1, the M8 to Glasgow and A9 to northern Scotland.
Responsibilities & Pets
Sitters would be responsible for including our gorgeous lab in their daily routine as they go out and about as much as possible. She is not used to being left on her own for more than 4-5 hours and would get distressed if this happened. She is used to at least a 1 hour's run per day through our local river walk only 5 minutes from the house or at our local Dalkeith country park.
On my return I would expect that that the house is left as you find it. I will ensure you find it spotless so as minimum I would expect it thoroughly hoovered, the bathroom and kitchen clean and depending on the weather and the length of your stay the grass cut and garden plants watered regularly.
