About this assignment

We are looking for a reliable, animal loving person/couple who could look after our dogs, Nubie & Peanut & our cat (George) from 17th August to 1st September.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Walking the dogs 2 times a day, feeding everyone and that's about it! And of course, strokes and cuddles. We also have a pond in the garden so a bit of food for the goldfish & an aquarium in the lounge so a pinch in there too. Otherwise, sit back, relax or get out and explore a lovely part of the South West of England.

What are the good features of the property and location

Our house is a standard 3 bed semi, but in a lovely village (Milborne Port) on the border of Somerset and Dorset. We back on to fields with loads of great walks and are only 2 minutes from the beautiful and historic town of Sherborne. Yeovil is 15 mins, Shaftesbury 30 mins, Wincanton 10 minutes and Weymouth 45 minutes. We are ideally placed for exploring most of Dorset, Somerset and West Devon. Milborne Port itself has 2 pubs, a Co-op, Post Office, butcher, newsagents, library & doctor's surgery so has good local amenities. Nearby Sherborne has a Waitrose & Sainsburys. There are buses on the hour into Sherborne (5 min journey) and there is a railway station in Sherborne with good links.

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

Nubie is a rescue dog and does have a few 'issues'. He growls at himself now and again (mainly when he's stressed or excited) and chases his non-existent tail. But otherwise he is very loyal, loving and will always be by your side. He can just make you jump sometimes if you are not expecting it! Although since our other dog died last summer he has actually been much better. Peanut is a 10 month old Jack Russell x Chihuahua & is an absolute dream - so much fun, loves cuddles, walks, balls, toys - you name it she's on it! George is very old & sleeps ALL day & ALL night so no trouble at all.
