House sitter required near Edinburgh in semi-rural location with one dog.
Myself and husband who has recently semi-retired from the IT industry are looking for somebody who is happy to care for our dog 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 dog. This involves around a 30 minute dog walk each day in neighbouring fields (wellies required) plus several outings throughout the day into our garden. He can be left home alone for 4-5 hours during the day if required. We don't require any further responsibilities but would ask that the house is left as you find it.
