Description

We have 3dogs, two black Labradors Tam (male, 11yrs) Bess (female, 2yrs) and a Jack Russell ‘Fife’ (female 11yrs). The Labs are easy, Fife is an inveterate badger hunter and will go down any badger sett she can so must be watched on walks. It’s probably easier and less agitating for a house-sitter to walk her on her extending lead. Her disappearance for hours, and return torn and bleeding, is not something I would inflict on anyone other than her owners! The dogs are fed on a raw meat diet plus mixer – I leave a chart of feeding requirements on the fridge.

The house is 500 years old or thereabouts. It has 5 bedrooms and 4 bath/shower rooms, but the upper floors are divided by the bathrooms so house-sitter(s) would have 3 bedrooms and 2bathrooms of the guest side. Dogs sleep downstairs.
