Mature reliable, responsible,clean and tidy, house proud, non smoker house sitter single femal or couple needed to care for toy poodle. Require references, prefer police check certificate as there are children in this small block of four villas. My dog is eight years old and used to having people for company. He sleeps in his bed on the floor in my bedroom and is generally walked twice a day until he does his doggie business. He is fed twice a day and is good company but if you want to go to the ballet or the opera or simply go shopping, he can be left for up to six hours without needing to go outside. Of a night he will sleep for up to twelv hours without disturbing you. I have just moved into my villa and have completely renovated it . All the furniture, the kitchen and bathroom are new. I have a little courtyard and I am walking distance from cafes and the beach. There is a bus that can take you to the city or Rockdale station. If you have car etc it is safe in the street. I have good neighbours who are quiet, helpful and non intrusive. For me this is a trial to see how my dog adjusts to a house sitter while I am on a three day conference interstate. I am planning on a trip in October and another next year in May so it would be wonderful if I had the same person house sitting over those periods but I am aware that may not be convenient to you. I have to say I am nervous about this arrangement but with the right person I am sure it will work out for both of us.
