We have a standard poodle and a white shepherd who will need some love while we're away for the Easter holidays.
They require time with people, sleeping inside at night, feeding twice a day. If you remember to water our few plants that's a bonus! You can walk them if you wish.
Our other baby is a cockatiel. He needs seed and water changed each day and some time around people. He is happy to be around you without you necessarily giving him attention.
We also have a fish tank that is relatively self-maintaining. You just need to add food every second day.
We are near shops and bus routes in the south of Canberra. Our house is a 3 bedroom, 2 storey house.
