Located in Romsey (Macedon Ranges), we are a 20 acre hobby farm, our house is a small 3-bedroom house with all the mod cons. Having a car will be important as we live 4km from town.

We have 5 dogs, 3 of which would be at the house for the period of pet sitting, the other two are going to my sister's place.

Dogs are:
Fangio, 6-month Italian Greyhound
Archie, 3yo Jack Russell
Shadow, 14yo mixed breed (staffy x bull terrier x sharpei)

We also have 4 horse on the property, 2 are mine, 2 are on agistment and owned by my neighbour. My neighbour will be taking care of the horses for the most part but there will be days that hay would need to be thrown over the fence for them when my neighbour is at work. If you have time, we will pay an extra fee for picking up horse manure in the paddocks - it's about 1hrs' work each day. Would be good but isn't necessary.

I provide a detailed guide for the animal care, emergency contacts (of course) and general details for looking after the house and property.

We would prefer someone with previous experience looking after a number of animals (including references), farm/equine experience an added bonus. Fangio is a puppy so requires a little more care than the adult dogs because he's still being house broken.

My sister and brother in law would visit the property weekly also to manage some of the bigger jobs such as turning garden irrigation on/off, mowing lawns. Their visits would be on a schedule so you'd know when they are coming.

Pets & farm animals

5 dogs - * Teddington, 12 week English Toy Terrier * Fangio, 6mo Italian Greyhound * Archibald, 3yo Jack Russell * Shadow, 14yo staffy x bull terrier x sharpei * Dante, 14yo Italian Greyhound Teddington and Dante will not be at the house for pet sitting. My sister will take them. 4 horses - * Owen and Tess are my horses * Holly and Santo are on agistment and belong to my neighbour Dogs require feeding twice daily, a daily walk which can be on the property (we're on 20 acres). Horses will mostly be taken care of by my neighbour but there are some days she's working and the horses require hay to be thrown over the fence. Horses should also be checked on AM/PM for general care. I have a detailed guide available for all the animals, the property and the house.
