  • Description


    We need a dog sitter for our Labrador who prefers to stay in our home when we are away, he is loving and needs lots of cuddles!

    My wife is an art teacher. We both work from home, help with dog walking, light housework and maybe gardening would be great.

    We’re now booked up to the end of August except for a little part of June.
