About this assignment

We are looking for a dog sitter/walker for just over two weeks, from 29th July until 15th August. The person must be willing to walk the dog twice a day.
Could be ideal for a young adult/couple still living at home wishing to have a quiet and peaceful house to him/her/themself for a period of time, in the company of a lovely, friendly dog.
It is not suitable for somebody wishing to visit London and who would therefore be out most of the time. The dog can be left for about four hours at a time but we would not want him left alone all day. If there was an occasional day when he had to be left for longer, we can arrange another walker. Therefore, the arrangement is fairly flexible
We are currently looking for somebody for about two weeks in July/August 2016.
We would like somebody who has a listing on this site and who can provide references.
We would be happy to offer some payment for this and that can be negotiated.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Twice daily dog walking and feeding the dog.

What are the good features of the property and location

It is in south east London (zone 3), a ten minute walk from the station and 20 minutes to Charing Cross by train. It is in Lee, SE12, not far from Blackheath and Greenwich.
It is a large house with a sunny garden in a very quiet road.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

It should not be somebody who is working full time.
The dog can be left for some hours during the day (4-6 hours max) but not all day long.
It would really suit somebody looking for a quiet and very comfortable place to work/study with the company of a lovely, friendly dog. If you were going to be out all day, we have a local dog walker who may be able to help out on that day so it's not impossible.
We have a lodger in our attic room but she does not use the rest of the house and so you would have the run of the house in our absence.
he company of a gorgeous, affectionate, low maintenance dog!!
We have been let down very last minute by two complete time wasters through this site so are really hoping we can find somebody reliable.
This would be absolutely ideal for a writer/researcher looking for a very tranquil place to work.
For peace of mind, we would prefer somebody who has a listing on this site.
