About this assignment

The most important thing to me is that Max is happy when I am away. He needs a daily walk and lots of attention.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Max is my baby & the main reason I’m seeking a house sitter. He is a 4 year old, half German Shepherd and half Rottweiler. He’s totally docile and loves cuddles, playing ball and lots of attention. Max's biggest faults are jumping up on visitors with muddy paws, chasing cats if he get the chance and having selective hearing. Otherwise he's gorgeous. He is trained to sit, lay down, roll over, wait, shake hands, heel and go to bed but commands work so much better with doggy treats...
Usual routine for Max is a daily walk before the sun gets too hot and dinner & play time in the evening. Max lives outside in a secure yard. He has his dog house but tends to find his own little spots to shelter from the heat. He’s afraid of thunder & will make a dash for the house if he thinks he can squeeze by you to get in. Once in the house it’s a real pain in the rear to get him out again!
He is generally in good health and all his medical vaccinations are up to date. The vet does house visits and knows Max well.

What are the good features of the property and location

I live on the North coast of Jamaica 15 minutes’ drive to the market town of Falmouth in Trelawny and 5 mins drive to the local beach. My home is in a quiet, secure gated community on the highway, mid-way between Montego Bay and Ochio Rios. My home is a small, open plan, modern, uncluttered house with a fully equipped kitchen, Wi-fi and hot water. (I will be happy to send my airbnb link if you want to have a proper look). The back yard is 'under construction' and someone comes regularly to chop down the weeds. I have lots of young plants that will probably require watering in the dry season but the real hard work is taken care of. There is a shady gazebo to escape the afternoon sun.

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

The dates I have selected are flexi within a week or so. The are no shops or bars within walking distance but I have an old (but well maintained) car which is avalable for local trips. Longer trips will require local transport.
The housing scheme where I live is very friendly & I can link you with several people who can offer support or help in an emergency.
Whilst you are taking care of my home & my baby, I will be in UK working. I will be contactable day or night on WhatsApp or however you prefer to communicate. The most important thing to me is that Max is well taken care of.
