We are going to Sydney to look after our grandson whilst our daughter and husband take a trip to NZ. Our cocker spaniel Roy is a beautiful obedient dog but does not do well with separation as he spends every day with one of us. We only require that you walk him every day around our beautiful lake across the road and be with him. Our house and yard is very minimal care but if no rain you will have to activate the sprinkler system which my husband would let you know about before we go. It is a gorgeous house in a gorgeous area for someone or a couple dedicated to the dog. He is what we care about. Please do not respond if you are going to leave him alone for long periods of time. He loves being in a vehicle and travel with you if you need to go to the shop which is very close by. Woolies, pharmacy, BWS, butchers, bakery everything 1 minute away.
