Lovely, friendly, reliable sitter required
We’re a family home in Barry, South Wales, with 1 cat, 1 whippet lurcher and 1 Italian greyhound. The cat is very low maintenance... the dogs are very loving and adore having someone to snuggle into in the evenings. They don’t need hours and hours of walking, a daily stroll with the opportunity for a sprint is just fine! The dogs love human company and a warm fleece/human to cuddle into. The little Italian greyhound needs to be let out for a toilet break every 3 hours or so....
Our Home & Location
Our home is a spacious 4 bed Victorian terraced family house, where we live with our 2 young children. You’ll find it is a great base for exploring the beaches and countryside of the Vale of Glamorgan. We are a 20 min walk or 2 min drive from the beaches of Barry Island. It is also just a few miles to the centre of cardiff. We are close to the local high street with all its amenities and are near lots of transport links.
Responsibilities & Pets
The cat needs feeding 1-2 times a day and goes out overnight. The dogs need feeding twice a day (with the odd snacks thrown in!) plus walking once or twice a day. They also aren’t generally left for more than 4 hours by themselves. They sleep together in a crate overnight and LOVE human and canine company. The dogs are both 2 years old. We’ve Dave (Italian greyhound) since he was a pup but Minnie (lurcher) has been with us since November, when we rescued her from Cardiff Dogs Home. They are both EXTREMELY good natured, though Minnie gets a little nervous and cowers when meeting a new dog. This is getting MUCH better with time, though she still likes to stay near her human when out walking.
