We are looking for dog-loving pet sitters whilst we are visiting family abroad from 2nd December 2018 until 7th January 2019.
We have a 2 year old whippet cross (quite a large dog considering the whippet in him!) who will be 2 years and 8 months in December. His name is Dougal and he is well-behaved and very friendly. We have a 3-month old son and 2.5 year old daughter so he is very used to children and has endless patience! He only needs one walk a day to the local park where he releases lots of energy chasing his balls. He then tends to sleep all day. He sometimes gets a second wind of energy at 4 or so but normally just amuses himself in our garden!
We live in a 3-bedroom house in Welwyn Garden City. The house is on three levels and has one bathroom. We recently completed a kitchen/dining room extension which is now open plan and very user friendly and a great place to relax. It has bifold doors that open onto a large patio and garden and allow lots of natural light.
The house is in a green and leafy suburban area with local shops, restaurant, pubs and parks a 10 minute walk away. Lakes and woodland are within walking distance. We are also very close to an Urgent Care Centre for urgent medical attention. You can walk into the town centre in about 20 minutes where you will find large high street shops, a large variety of restaurants and the train and bus station. You can get the bus to nearby towns and the train goes to central London in approximately 25 minutes. You can also get trains easily to Cambridge and Brighton.
If you have access to a car, you will be able to visit local villages and their pubs for a quick pint. Dougal is great at travelling by car and is used to coming with us to the pub!
Please let us know if you have any questions about Dougal, the house or the area and we look forward to meeting you!
