About this house sitting position in Forest Row

Hello! We are a couple who are very lucky to live in a large, comfortable home with our 3 dogs and 2 cats and some tropical fish plus fish in garden ponds.
We are looking for animal lovers who will take good care of our home and pets when we go away. Leila is a beautiful, gentle & very friendly Finnish Lapphund who gets on well with our 2 pretty cats (Chi Chi and Chloe). Jagger is our energetic adolescent male Finnish Lapphund and Neo is a Nenet Laika, a rescue from Siberia. 
Leila and Neo are easy to walk, Jagger is strong and he does pull if he gets excited so our sitter needs to be able to handle that.

Responsibilties include

Feed all the pets and exercise dogs. Each dog only needs 1 walk of about an hour per day but it is necessary to do 2 walks: Leila plus one of the boys and the other boy on his own. All dogs must be kept on leads on walk

Get the post in and keep house clean and tidy. Water house plants and pots on terrace as necessary. (The garden is looked after by our gardeners.)

House features
We have a large detached house in nearly 2 acres, overlooking fields and on edge of Ashdown Forest. You can walk to forest and to Weirwood reservoir plus other country walks without taking a car!
Yet it is less than a mile to walk into a very lively village - takes about 15 minutes. Forest Row has a lot of shops, cafes and pubs and restaurants.

The house is fully refurbished and has full CH plus a wood burner fire in large open plan kitchen and living area. Your bedroom is a double room with ensuite shower room.

There is wifi, SKY TV, DVD etc.
To consider:
Please consider how much time you are likely to want to be away from our house in a day as we will favour house sitters who will spend a lot of their time at Priorsfield.
We also prefer to meet potential sitters to ensure you and the dogs get on and you can judge for yourselves how lovely our pets and home are!
Note, the end date is fixed but start date is approximate, may be a couple days later.
