Dogs and house
Hi There, we live in Lusaka the capital city of Zambia on an acre of land in Kabalonga, a nice residential area on the outskirts of town, we are traveling a bit this year and so would like to have our two dogs kept company. The Labrador is called Rosie who is oldish now with some arthritis but still loves to fetch her ring and swim, the Cocapoo or Spoodle, Pepper is still a puppy very sweet and typical of a puppy!. We have a housekeeper who comes in from Monday ( 7am -3.30pm) to Saturday (half day ;12.00) who cleans the house, does washing and ironing and can do some cooking, she also feeds the dogs. There is a gardener who looks after the property and can run small errands, he lives in his own house on the property. Our vet is just up the road about 10 minutes drive.
Our Home & Location
We have a lovely house in with a large garden and verandah and swimming pool and a very small gym, a running machine and bicycle. There is a studio where I work on the property and a small office at the other end of the garden where 4 people work every week day, they keep to themselves. We have an electric gate and fence and an alarm bell that calls our security company immediately if there was ever a problem. Walking distance are shops and a small shopping centre, there are more shopping malls a 4 minute taxi ride away and some restaurants, we have delicious steak here in Zambia. There is a gym which is well equipped a ten minute drive up the road. We have TV with all the channels and Netflix. The sitter could have use of the car for local trips only or we can give them the name of a couple of trusted taxi drivers who can pick and drop them as they need. A twenty minute drive out of town are some nice walks in the forest.
Responsibilities & Pets
Since we have staff who feed and manage Rosie, Pepper and cat their needs are cared for but we really want someone to keep them company put them to bed at night with a biscuit and to love and play with them, weekends especially when the staff are off.
