Our petsit has reopened. Our chosen petsitter has had to withdraw for health reasons. If you are interested in doing this long petsit please contact us.

Cowes is a beautiful area with calm beaches in walking distance. It is situated on Phillip Island which has heaps of natural attractions and well-serviced by supermarkets and other shops. Our modern 3 bedroom home is very close to the golf course. Everything is fresh and new - floorboards/rugs in living areas and carpets in bedrooms. It has a very private aspect with native garden. There is undercover decking at the back of the house. This is a very quiet, peaceful neighbourhood with walking trails around the lake.

We have 2 pet residents: 1 dog & 1 cat. Teddy, the dog, is an 8 year old poodle x, a rescue dog who is nervous but very loving once he accepts you. Maisie the 10 year old cat is friendly, sassy and little trouble; she will have to be inside at night. Teddy will sleep on the sofa or a (your) bed. Tracy & Michelle, the pet groomers, will groom Teddy while we are away. They arrive in a mobile unit and groom Teddy onsite. There is nothing to do except check the letterbox, mow small grassed areas in front and back (1 - 2 mows would be all), and walk the dog - morning and/or early evening.

We also have 2 chooks - Ginger & Cassie - these girls are retired (not laying). They live in a fully enclosed, very large pen. Because the Island is fox-free, the girls go to and from their night roost independently. This is an excellent property with easy to mind pets in a secure setting. Our petsitters will need to be in residence for the duration of the petsit. Teddy will stay inside when you leave the house; Maisie is happy outside during the day but must be inside at night - local Shire law.

This is a long house/petsit and it's possible you may have unexpected travel for personal or work commitments. For this reason, we prefer a couple to respond to this advertisement to ensure continuity. However if you are single and think you would like to do this, then tell us why. We look forward to hearing from you.

Pets & farm animals

Teddy is a white poodle cross and will stay inside most of the time. He is a Rescue Dog and has been with me since May 2015. Teddy was particularly badly-treated and is still timid. He loves walks around the estate. He walks on a lead well. Maisie the cat is a small tortoiseshell and loves sitting on laps at night while you watch TV. She explores during the day We ask for the sitter to be in residence - these animals cannot be left alone overnight. Our 2 chooks have a coop which will need cleaning daily; top up food and water containers as needed. They have a large fenced off area to scratch and explore and they also love being let into the back grassy area for a couple of hours each day. The island is foxfree so no need to lock them in at night. They take themselves to bed.

House Tasks

Daily - Check the mailbox; walk Teddy at least once daily; feed the animals & chooks. Keep the house clean - and enjoy the Island attractions. Grass will need mowing 1 - 2 times; garden has native plants,
