Hello! I'm urgently looking for a house/pet sitter for 29 March-20 April because my sitter has had to pull out. I'm taking the kids back to the UK for my Mum's 80th birthday. It's such a big trip and the kids are so excited.
We live in a 2-storey modern house, with good WIFI and all the streaming channels to watch. We have 2 small mature dogs - Scooby (Maltese Cross, about 14) who likes to be at home and know someone is around. He sleeps a lot and unfortunately doesn't see or walk as well as he used to. Ziggy (Fox Chihuahua, about 11) is pretty lazy but he does enjoy a walk. He doesn't like other dogs at all so I change direction if I see another dog coming - he is very good on the lead. Dogs are fine to be home alone during the day but like to have people around in the evening/overnight. They sleep on the bed so you'll need to be a dog person! We also have a rabbit who lives in a large cage indoors and would be happy to stay in during your stay - she may want head-scratches though!
The area is nice in a small cul-de-sac with good shopping nearby. 1 carpark space in the drive but also buses nearby or walk to the train station. It's about an hour train ride into central Sydney. There are plenty of bush walks in the area and the Botanical Gardens not too far away.
