A responsible and considerate couple who want a genuine home from home with a load of cat and dog cuddles thrown in!
Available from 16th March to 2nd April (dates to be confirmed ASAP).
We’re looking for a couple who are experienced at house sitting and with dogs as our Collie does occasionally get nervous on walks, although our previous house sitters didn’t have any problems.
To look after 2 lively 8 year old dogs, a Collie/ Belgian Shepherd cross and a Border Terrier/ Heinz 57 type, and 1 elderly cat. The dogs love each other in a big sister / little brother way, so there's some playing and chasing each other before they curl up for big snoozes. They love to run and swim in the nearby country park. They equally love cuddles so you will find yourself on the sofa with a dog either side and a cat on your knee! The dogs have tablets but these are just put into their food.
The cat is elderly, deaf, stays in and sleeps all day so she is extremely easy, but she does love a knee to sit on at night.
The most important things to us are that the animals feel loved and secure and that our home is enjoyed and cared for responsibly. Therefore, feeding, cuddles, cat litter and walkies (at least an hour/day) are the main duties.

The house is a modest 3 bed semi, situated in a quiet street, with friendly neighbours. The house is non-smoking, clean and cosy (we think so), decorated with comfort and pets in mind. The house has the usual amenities, including very good wifi, but sorry no satellite TV. There is a substantial shower and a lovely wood burner for cosy nights in (along with central heating!) There is a driveway for safe street parking for your own vehicle.
Knutsford is a historic market town 20mins from Manchester airport, with a beautiful cobbled street, a scattering of Tudor buildings and Tatton Park, a 1000 acre National Trust property with a historic house holding many events, and grounds with lakes and deer. The town has supermarkets, lots of independent shops, and numerous lovely restaurants. The house is 5mins from the M6 and the towns of Wilmslow and Alderley Edge are also nearby for exploring. There is rail access from the town to Manchester.
Ideally the sitter would arrive on the day before the assignment to meet us, get acquainted with the house and pets before we leave. We could collect from Manchester airport or train station if needed.
The sitters should be a couple, experienced at house sitting with references, former pet owners and non-smoking.
