Having just been let down by a house sitter, we are now urgently looking for real dog lovers to take special care of our elderly dogs from Dec This sit is primarily about dog sitting and not so much the house sitting aspect. So this arrangement will only appeal to you if you truly love dogs and are prepared to be home with them for most of the time. We want someone who will be around most of the time to ensure the dogs have company and are well looked after. You must be moderately active and be able to walk our two dogs and to lift them in an out of the car (they are not allowed to jump in and out of their own accord). Our dogs are ageing whippets (14 and nearly 14 by the time of the sit). Neither dog is on mediation. They are medium sized, very friendly, gentle, non-aggressive and easy going and are great company. They like to around you most of the time. But they are both rather spoiled and very much indoor dogs who like their creature comforts. But they do also like their daily walks - usually a short walk in the morning and a longer walk in the afternoon/evening. To be suitable for this sit you must like dogs, be kind and gentle and ideally be at home most of the time. This is our number one priority. You must also be clean living, non smoking and 100% reliable (we are going overseas and can't afford any changes to the plan). You will need to take special care of our dogs, particularly ensuring they are kept warm, but also be prepared to give them plenty of attention, cuddles and love. Our house is a traditional New Zealand wooden bungalow but it's nice and comfortable and in a good area (Epsom/Royal Oak area of Auckland). The house has all modern conveniences, including central heating, and we have a pleasant, large, fenced and secure garden. We are close to an easy bus route into the city centre (15 minute bus ride) and about 20 minutes walk to Greenlane Clinical Centre. If you are interested or want to know more information please do get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you very much.
