House and pet sitting in Selkirk Scottish Borders
We are booked to be presenting Trainers Training in Goa India.
When we lived in Turkey we had Barb & Pete from New Zealand, they were fantastic
Our Home & Location
Selkirk is a small town 20 mins from Melrose Hawick Galashiels . One hour from Edinburgh airport.
There are many art and craft shops and wonderful historic buildings. Close to Selkirk is St Mary’s Loch and the famous Grey Mare’s Tail, a waterfall that trickles down the surrounding rocks. Haining House is in Selkirk and was generously left in a legacy to the people of Selkirk to continue its upkeep and provide a place for various educations, functions and business.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have four rescued dogs we brought back from Turkey and two cats. Although we live in a town, very close to two small convenience stores there are wonderful riverside, forest walks only five minutes in the car.
The dogs do need an early morning walk ( 6:30 ish) and again about 4:30 pm before supper and they are all ready for bed at 6pm until the morning, so you are free to do what you want. The cats come and go through a cat flap evenings
There is a very nice back courtyard and garden with two sheds. It is completely secure so dogs can use garden, weather permitting. General housekeeping and most importantly looking after the pets.
The four dogs are big mutts and have done a great job dealing with their transition from street survival to house dogs
