Needs and Animals

  • My pets

Looking after dogs and garden in a stunning area of Greece , not the typical tourist area, undiscovered by the masses.
I have used house sitters for many years and it's usually their favorite sit.
Looking for honest enthusiastic, happy sitter, able to love and care for the dogs primarily.
Fit , healthy, tidy and very clean , single independent lady preferred .
I offer you a private cottage for your exclusive use and privacy .
3 adorable rescue dogs 2 living free outside, one inside .
All fed twice a day , grooming -fur trimming and love.
Lea is 8 mix breed medium size , she is very loyal and loving . She will need her fur kept short with scissors (in the summer ) as has a strange double thick fur
Tinky the tiny ball of energy doesn't miss a trick , very funny bouncy little dog, approx 6 years old .
Athena a Frenchie rescue lives inside as sensitive to cold , a gorgeous character.
Winter sits no gardening required just your warm jumper !
Garden, lawn and natural area , lawn to be mowed, hedges kept trimmed, gravel weeding boarders to be kept tidy and weed free ( in summer )
July August watering of lawns , fruit trees, plants etc from plentiful supply of water from the mountain spring and well.
Organic veggi garden can be created and enjoyed in early summer , ideal planting time May.
Cherry trees ripe in June , apples, walnuts and almond trees .
