Some flexibility in dates, if needed.
We favour experienced Sitters with reviews, references, and CRB/ police checked, a bonus.
Ideally, a couple (both experienced and dog lovers) as we prefer to have a two persons team in case one is poorly/ feeling under the weather.
All suitable applicants will be considered.
We NO longer accept Families with children and/or their pets.
Mature, active, dependable Sitters who enjoy the countryside and are experienced in caring for a pet dog family member, lovingly and responsibly. Sitters that genuinely enjoy to spend quality time with their pet charges and are considerate of HOs properties.
Care of our Labrador male is The priority. Looking after our home is equally important to us.
Caring and spending quality family time with our beloved Labrador. Daily exercise (walks on a lead; dogs in Wales MUST be on a lead in public places, at all times), feeding twice a day and give his daily supplements which are mixed in his meals, toilet outings to our paddock, cuddles and fuss/ family time, regular maintenance (brushing, cleaning ears and trimming nails, as needed). Our boy is a gentle soul and very amenable.
Looking after our property. We have grounds with minimal maintenance. The grass will likely need to be cut (small front and back garden areas, plus our pup’s paddock). We have a secured 2+ acres field where our dog loves to roam, supervised. We also have a secured paddock where he does his toilets (poops must be collected daily and disposed of in our hedge), regular washing of his bedding, as needed.
We supply bed linen and towels.
We have compiled a very comprehensive hard copy Book of The House and Pet Routines for Sitters to refer to, as needed.
We understand Sitters will wish to go sight seeing/ experience the area but ask kind consideration NOT to leave our boy for too many consecutive hours on his own and NOT on consecutive days, please!
Keeping in regular contact with us with pupdates and photos is always very appreciated!
