We need a house sitter

Hawke's Bay - Napier


I am a shepherd and am looking for someone that would be able to come look after my 8 dogs for 2 weeks. I am on a 1500ha sheep and beef station that is right up in the ranges, 12 km through the forestry so is quite remote. We have some amazing landscape and views on the drive in and from the house. We are close to some lovely bush walks around the Tutira area (Lake Tutira, Bell Rock, Shine Falls, Boundary Stream). We are an hour out of Napier towards Wairoa 12km up a gravel road.

Age of dogs at time of sit-
1x 4 year female heading dog- Lace (medium size)
2x 5 year Male huntaways- Rowdy & York (big dogs)
1x 2 year old Male heading dog- Ted (medium size)
1x 2 year old Female huntaway- Nova (medium size)
1x 1 year old Female Heading Dog- Fig (Small)
1x 1 year old Male Huntaway- Bear (medium size)
1x 3 year old Male Fox Terrier- Russ (small)

They are well behaved and will come when called but you will need to be confident around dogs. They will need to be let out morning and night but only fed at night. I will have all their food ready and I will name their kennels, plus will leave a book with photos and name of each dog.

I also have a veggie garden and a quite few outdoor pot plants that may need to be watered.
I also have indoor plants that will need to be watered.

It will no doubt be quite chilly up here but we have a fire place.

The house is a classic farmhouse nothing flashy but is very homey. There is an awesome view from the deck that looks out towards Napier, over the farm and on a clear day you can see the coast. At night you can see the lights of Napier.

If this sounds like it would suit you or you have any further questions please get in touch with me!!
