2nd-9th Nov. And you can arrive a little earlier, e.g. 30th/31st Oct, allowing you time to take some days out to venture into the Highlands.
I'm looking for a reliable person/couple who knows dogs well. Good reviews mitted to staying the period... thanks. Respectful of my home... thanks again.
There will be other opportunities in the future too.
Basic responsibilities will be 3 dog-walks a day (don't need to be long walks)... morning, afternoon and shorter one at bed time. Kept on leads please... thanks. Keep home safe. No drugs or lots of alcohol... I want to be sure my dogs are happy and safe... thank you again.
I have a lovely, bright, spacious upper (first floor) Victorian flat/apartment with amazing views (you can't see all the views in the photos but there are more and you'll be convinced seeing them in real life).
Crieff is, I call it, the entrance to the Highlands. It's an utterly beautiful area, quiet and with a couple of golf courses, a quaint wee town (or large village), woodlands, forests, lots of outdoor activities (walks, running, cycling) and 15 minutes from a the Loch of Earn. Only 20 miles from Perth. There are local petrol stations and a Co-op supermarket plus a couple of smaller ones and a local vegetable store. A big Tesco is 20 minutes drive away. You can hear owls at night sometimes. There's the Murraypark Hotel next door which has a comfortable bar and a restaurant, both of which serve great food! It's not far from Crieff Hydro Hotel around the corner which offers a small cinema, bars and cafes plus lots of outdoor activities (horse-riding, quad-biking, cycling, tennis, air-rifles, et al.
Excellent Internet connection.
Combi boiler so constant hot water and heating if required.
Kitchen has gas hobs and gas oven. Microwave, toaster, cafetierre, kettle, washing machine, fridge/freezer, and all other expected equipment, pots, pans, etc.
They're 2 healthy and fit smallish dogs (best friends female Westie...(a bit bossy and not very cuddly but does like a neck massage and tummy-tickles) and male part-Poodle (he's very friendly and very sensitive)). They're both non-allergenic and don't shed.
Things you need to be prepared to do: not to feed any "human" food. They may wait for you to give them food off your plate but they will be satisfied with some of their dried food instead.
There are a few steps (maybe about 15) to the flat so, if you have knee/hip problems it probably isn't ideal.
It'll be good if you're happy to arrive a day or so earlier to become acquainted with the dogs so they're happy to go for walks with you once I've gone.
