Two sweet dogs and some free range chickens
My husband and I are looking for someone who can care for and play with our beagle and our lab, feed the chickens and gather and eat fresh eggs.
Our Home & Location
This is a 4 bedroom home on 3 acres in a quiet country setting. We're about an hour from downtown Boston and 30 minutes from Providence or Worcester. You'll have a nice bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen is modern and we have a large TV with streaming services and high speed internet. Our home has a pellet stove which will need to have pellets added once or twice a day when it's cold (provided and kept in the garage). We also have gas heat with a thermostat in your bedroom. If it snows, we do have a snow blower available for your use.
Responsibilities & Pets
The dogs need to be fed twice a day. They can be home alone for 6-8 hours without a problem and are both healthy. The lab gets his main exercise playing fetch in the yard - he's 11 so he's slowing down but still loves to play and to snuggle. Our 11 year old beagle is more of a couch potato but he enjoys a good walk.
We have 14 chickens and a rooster. Once a day you gather and wash the eggs, check their feeder and water and let them into an outer enclosure. They are gentle and have been handled since they were chicks so none of them, including the rooster, are at all aggressive....
You will need to add bags of pellets to the pellet stove a couple of times a day in cold weather and snow blow the driveway if it snows. + More info
