Location: Spring Hill 3444
Duration: 37 days
Dates: 23-Aug-2018 - 28-Sep-2018
Requirements: We are looking for a housesitter for our home on 2.5 acres in the beautiful Macedon Ranges, in a very private setting on a country lane. There is an open plan living room/kitchen, a master bedroom, a study, a nursery and a bathroom.
Only 15 minutes to Kyneton, Daylesford or Trentham and approx. 1 hour to Melbourne.
We have 3 dogs we will need you to look after, as well as chickens and ducks, 2 sheep, 3 alpacas and a goat.
Our main concern are the dogs (an Anatolian Shepherd, a Labrador/Kelpie x and a Border Terrier), we are looking for someone with experience with large dogs that can be dominant (although they are well behaved and know the rules, they need someone who can be firm and ensure they stick to those rules). The dogs spend the day in two large dog runs and two of them are used to sleeping inside at night.
We will also need you to feed the chickens and ducks, as well as letting them out in the morning and locking them up at night. The only thing you would have to do with the sheep, alpacas and goat is to check that they have water.
Since we will be going away in spring, some lawn mowing and potentially watering will be needed, but we do have a ride on lawnmower.
Please note property is on tank water and bottled gas.
Please feel free to ask any further questions.
