I'm looking for a quiet, responsible, self-sufficient, dog-friendly non-smoker who would like to spend some quiet time with my elderly dog at home or in the garden.
(1) A few days in mid-December 2013, preferably from around Dec 15, but some flexibility for the right person
(2) Similar stays of several days in early 2014, dates not decided
(3) Longer stay of up to one month: Mid to late 2014, dates not decided
Keeping my small elderly dog company, including only very short walks
Watering a few plants
Attractive cottage in quiet rural setting
Reliable, fast wifi
Very easy access, only minutes from the A48/M4 motorway
10-minute drive from mainline railway station (I will pick you up)
My dog is low maintenance but gets very anxious without human company, so I need a dog-sitter who intends to spend ALL THE TIME at home or in the garden, such as a writer, student, person working online, TV addict, etc.
*This is not an assignment for anyone who wants to explore the area during the housesitting period.
The nearest railway station is 5 miles away. If you have no means of transport, I'm happy to pick you up and take you back to the station.
