House sitter required near Edinburgh in semi-rural location with two dogs.
Myself and husband who has semi-retired from the IT industry are looking for somebody who is happy to care for our dogs (one of which is a puppy born August 2018) in our family home near Edinburgh while we are away.
Our Home & Location
Our 5 bedroom home is in a semi-rural location nine miles south of central Edinburgh with good transport links. We are a 5 minute walk to the nearest bus stop providing a regular service into Edinburgh and also a short drive or 30 minute walk to the nearest train station on the Scottish Borders Railway line. We have a large garden including tennis court. A car is preferable given the location of our home but not essential.
Responsibilities & Pets
We are looking for somebody who is happy to feed, cuddle, play and exercise our dogs. This involves around a 30 minute dog walk each day in neighbouring fields (wellies required) plus several outings throughout the day into our garden. Lexie the puppy needs lots of attention throughout the day. We don't require any further responsibilities but would ask that the house is left as you find it.
