Note: This is readvertised due to a change in our housesitters situation.
We are looking for a housesitter to look after our new home (15 months old) and our 2 dogs while we are away. We would prefer a mature and professional (retired or employed) person or couple.
We are located approx 25 kilometers from Wellington Central in Upper Hutt. Our home is situated in a new subdivision that is quiet and is a flat 5 minute walk to Silverstream Village.
The village consists of a supermarket, bar, post office, gym, bakery and cafe. The train station is accross the road from the village.
A car can be made available for your use (providing you have a valid drivers license and meet our insurers requirements) plus we have a dedicated carpark in Wellington Central (near Parliament) which will also be available.
We are close to the river and cycling and hiking tracks plus the beach is a 15 minute drive away.
Our dogs are inside dogs when we are home and semi-outside dogs when we are not (we have a dog door in the garage). One is a 8 year old Viszla X (Gus) who is dopey and the other is a 6 year old Kelpie X (Maisie) who is too smart.
They love going for runs down the river and are generally well behaved, although Gus doesn't always wear his listening ears!
As Maisie has gotten older she doesn't like dogs charging towards her and as a result can get snappy so we put her on a lead when we see other dogs down the river.
Our only major requirement is that the dog poop is picked up on a regular basis, we had a previous pet sitter who did not do this the whole 3 weeks we were away which was a disgusting situation for our dogs and us on our return. We will provide disposal gloves, bags and a bin :-)
We have a cleaner who comes weekly so you can just relax and enjoy your time in our home. If you are interested in pet/house sitting for us, please us so that we can discuss this further. Thank you
