About this assignment

hi there,

we are looking for a housesitter(s) from the 11 augustus 2016 till 22 augustus 2016, also in oct. and christmas time.

i`m looking for somebody who loves animals, who can look after and walk, feed and water once a day our 2 dogs, a irish wolfhound and a american staffordshire, both powerfull and strong dogs, so somebody who has experience with dogs. On the whole they listen well to commands and are always very friendly. Also the chickens will need feeding and the eggs collected.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

we`re looking for someone to look after our 2 dogs and feed and water the chickens and collect the eggs.

What are the good features of the property and location

we live in a house built in 2010, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathroom, openplan kitchen/living, hobby room and utilityroom. we have 7 acres of land.
we live in the Kempen, Belgium in a small village called Winkelomgeide, 40minute from Antwerpen centre, 5 minutes to the nearest town Geel and 2 minutes walk to the local village. There are plenty of walking and cycling routes starting just outside the door.

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

the main consideration is that the dogs are walked 1x a day, the chickens feed 2x a day and the eggs collected daily.
our American Staffordshire does have some issues with other dogs and can pull to try and reach them, so needs to be somebody that can handle 2 powerfull dogs. They both do listen to commands though.

with the animals there is always the chance that everything doesn`t go to plan, so somebody that won`t panic. we have very good neighbours that will always help and I am only a phone call away!.
