We need a house sitter

Canterbury - Waimakariri


I live in a lovely home that is full of character.and I need a house sitter to stay and look after my dog, Baxter; cat, Missy and 6 chooks.

I am looking for someone who loves animals and will be around the house for alot of the time, as Baxter is unhappy being left on his own for long periods. I do have a male flatmate who lives in a sleepout at the rear of the property but he works long hours so is not around during the day and sometimes at night. He comes into the house now and then to use the facilities eg shower, toilet and kitchen (he rarely cooks as he has a microwave in sleepout) but alot of the time I dont even know hes there. He likes his own space so I hardly see him. Maybe a couple of times a week, if that. He is honest and trustworthy.

Baxter loves his daily walks but otherwise needs little care and loves attention or having a ball thrown for him on the property. He also has a strong personality but is gentle and very loving. Missy, is timid so you probably wont see alot of her. The chooks have the run of the back garden and are fed twice a day (pellets and wheat).

My house is situated in Rangiora township but a short walk to the supermarket or a short drive to the nearby Ashley River. There are also shops close by and a cinema. Christchurch city is a 30min drive away.

If you think you would enjoy staying at my house and looking after my furry companions, please contact me!!
