About this assignment

We are looking for an individual or couple who adore dogs I think our house and location is great for anybody that really likes to get out and about to explore the countryside. It is beautiful here. With lots of walking opportunities (we back onto the ridgeway)

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

I would need a reliable person to walk my dogs Nelly and Pepper and feed them twice a day. (Pepper currently 3 x a day)

Nelly is our little sprocker- she’s nearly 4 years old - has lots of energy and lives to run free in the woods! She’s a fab little girl - well trained - very playful and will settle down in the house. She needs a good run around a couple of times a day.

Pepper is our 5 month Sprocker - full of character and energy and again is settled when in the house after some stimulation - be that a little run in the garden, a short lead walk or a bit of fun puppy training.

Your responsibilities would be to feed, exercise and chill with my dogs in the evenings x To love dogs and enjoy their company.

What are the good features of the property and location

live in a beautiful area which backs onto Tring Park and the Ridgeway walking path. The house is a detached chalet bungalow set amongst the Chiltern Hills home to family of 3 young children! We live in a little village called Wigginton surrounded by stunning countryside and a great local pub just a few minutes away. We have access to the Ridgeway path, (via back garden) Ashridge Forest and Wendover woods are very near too. There are two towns nearby only a few miles away (Tring and Berkhamsted both have trains connecting to London) We are also extremely close to the Grand Union canal for beautiful walks and fishing. There is a local bus service which takes you to Tring. We have off road parking, Sky TV and wifi. Our property has an open fire with wood in the store as well as instant central heating.
We really do live in a beautiful part of the world.

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

Our house sitter would need to be a confident and experienced dog handler, and be able to commit the time to look after a big dog and a young energetic dog. Nelly will need a couple of hours walking a day - and i'd prefer that they we’re not left on their own for periods longer than 3/4 hours. Nelly is great off lead and with other dogs, obedient and friendly and would love to go exploring with you if you were to go out walking for the day. Pepper is still young and could go on a short walk for exercise on the lead at all times.

We do live in a village up a hill which does have a local little village shop - we do have bikes you can borrow - but the local Tesco is about a good 25/30 minute walk down the hill ( would take longer to get up!!) There is a local bus service which takes you into Tring.

Can I bring my own pets?

No, sorry.

Beautiful part of the country!

We had a great time here and really enjoyed being part of the neighborhood for a couple of weeks. The home owners are a relaxed and friendly family who made us feel welcome the moment we arrived and with whom we had easy contact throughout the stay. The house is in a tranquil spot with plenty of woodland to explore - having said that, its very close to amenities; the local villages have plenty to do. The dogs were a real highlight; energetic and affectionate - they were exactly as Marsha described them. Exploring the woodland with them was one of the most memorable parts of the stay - it genuinely is a lovely part of the country.
