Pet sitting & House sitting job in Canterbury
Canterbury - Hurunui
We are looking for someone who is confident and has previous experience with dogs to come and house sit while we are away.
We have a lovely border collie named Luna (4 years) who is very sweet and gentle and loves to play with her ball and frisbee and go for swims in the river. We also have three cats; Astra (6 years) and Kora (1 year), and Cosmo (Momo-6 months). Astra and Kora are pretty independent but like to be around people, Cosmo is a little more trouble and need some loving and litter tray attention. The chickens just need feeding and watering and to be let out to have a scratch every few days or when the weather is nice. We live in a small warm house with a 1/4 acre section with small gardens that we are trying to get established.
So house sitting duties would mainly include exercising Luna (and the odd bath), playing with and keeping Cosmo petted and cleaned up after, and all the pets fed. Light gardening and keeping the house tidy.
Amberley is 15 mins away with supermarkets and restaurants and shops, Christchurch is 50 mins away, and Hanmer is an hr away with hot pools, mountain biking, mini golf etc.
Please let us know if you are interested or have any questions.
