House Sit Required For 4 Cats, 3 Llamas in The Aveyron France January/ February 2018 Dates to Confirm
We have lived in France for 12 years now and we run a business over here selling antiques and collectibles worldwide.
We are looking for a mature responsible vegan or vegetarian couple to house sit for us and to look after our 4 adorable cats and 3 llamas. The cats are free to come and go as they please through their cat flat but do require cuddles on demand and to be fed also. The llamas require checking twice a day (or more if you wish) and their water to be topped up when low and their field to be cleaned on occasion. Additionally, if there is bad weather, they may need hay nets. Sorry we cannot accept children. We would prefer a couple who are roughly the same age as us, early 60’s and who are animal people.
Friendly, cat loving housesitters
My partner and I will be heading overseas during October and are looking for a pet loving, responsible person/family to look after our kitty cats and home while we are away. I work at the nearby university and my partner is an engineer. We love the outdoors and are always at the beach or camping when we have a spare weekend. This is our first time using this service – we really think that Gomez and Lella would appreciate a live in sitter rather than a once/twice a day pet sitter.
Benita, United Kingdom House Sit in a charming English Village in Dorset UK October 3 weeks – small holding
We will travel for work – 3 weeks in October. We’ need a reliable person, couple or family to house sit, and care for our two dogs and any poultry (geese), there may be a few hens. We have 4 acres of fields and woods, pond, orchard, and sheep. The house sitters would not need to be responsible for the sheep, a neighbour is helping. We live in a Dorset village with no immediate neighbours in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Quiet is guaranteed-no main roads nearby. Our house is built partly of cob, with a large room for cooking and eating. 2 dogs-small Springador and a Podenco enjoy walks and company. Both friendly. A house sitter’s own dog is welcome, if good with livestock. Our dogs don’t like to be left alone for long periods, though OK for a couple of hours.
Maggieford, United Kingdom affectionate energetic Border Collie looking for carer for 3 weeks in October
I am looking for a dog/house sitter whilst I am off on a camping Safari in Namibia. The most important thing is to find an appropriate person/s who will do good walks with my Border Collie Willow. My cottage is small but has stunning views over the dale. It’s a great area for walking and the village is very friendly with 3 shops and 3 pubs that all do excellent food. It would be ideal for a writer or academic who needs to break up the day with dog walking. Willow is very reliable with other dogs and loves children.
Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal, 18 Dec 2017 to 30 Sept 2017
We have 2 female pugs, who need 3 walks a day but 2 can do enough (morning and evening) since leaving the terrace open, they can do their needs. There is a park 5 minutes walk from the house. They have little exercise and are very sensitive to heat. They eat morning and evening. At the level of the specificities, we are strict on not feeding dogs outside meals, never by hand and do not blow them on the couch. They do not come in, at least they do not have the right to enter the room or into the bathrooms.
