Max and Flora need a sitter!
Max and Flora and me live on a beautiful country estate in the North-East of Fife, Scotland. I have lived on the estate for just over two years and work as Head Gardener in the gardens. The dogs are very active and love long walks on the lead. The cottage is well situated on the brow of a hill, which provides excellent views. The mutts are really happy in their own environment, so having a housesitter with them in their own space is great for them. I have used housesitters a couple of times and each time I've been so happy when returning home to see the hounds relaxed and well looked after. I have also been a housesitter so I have some understanding of expectations.
Our Home & Location
My cottage is a small two bedroom country home, with two double bedrooms, family bathroom, decent sized kitchen and sittingroom with open fire.
I have a small enclosed patio at the back of the cottage, which is the access point. And for walking there is a 1000 acre estate....
Internet, Oil Heating and landline.
It is a vegetarian house but I'm not militant about it. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Max and Flora like to be outside as much as possible, both are from working stock (although I certainly don't use them like that) so can be quite headstrong when out on the estate. Max cannot be walked off the lead and Flora, as a young puppy, is still exploring the world but has good recall. Flora will try to hunt the wildlife though so you need to be aware. Main responsibility is to love the hounds, walk them, feed and water them and play with them. Keep the house clean and tidy ( A cleaner visits weekly) and responsibly use oil and electricity.
