Housesit 15-25 September in Beaconsfield UK – 1 dog 1 cat
House-sitting and care for a 4 year old golden retriever and a cat.
We live in a large detached house with a big garden, walking distance from Beaconsfield town centre. We are in our mid fifties with adult children who have recently left home. The house has plenty of space, all the usual appliances and TV with basic Sky package and Netflix. In the town centre there are several supermarkets (M & S, Waitrose, Sainsburys) as well as a selection of cafes and shops. A car is not essential as everything (including the station) is in walking distance, but if you have a car then there is off street parking.
We have a six year old Golden Retriever (Cassie) who is young and fairly energetic. She enjoys at least one walk a day but would actually walk all day given the chance. She is well behaved but does love to chase squirrels or ducks and has a never ending desire to retrieve tennis balls in the garden. She will sit in muddy puddles or paddle in rivers whenever she can. When in the house she likes to be around other people but is fairly independent and will mostly just sleep. She is not allowed upstairs.
There are a couple of dog walks from the house that include a section of woodland where Cassie can be let off the lead. There are also a number of walks within a five to ten minute drive for the more adventurous.
We also have a 12 year old cat.. He has a cat flap so can come and go as he pleases. He loves a lap and a bit of attention and tolerates the dog. They are both used to being fed twice a day.
