"A 3 week house and pet sit caring for Dylan The Old English Sheepdog in Lyme Regis, UK"

In May we were thrilled to be chosen to sit for Dylan an Old English Sheepdog who lived in Lyme Regis on the south coast of England. Dylan needed lots of exercise and on most days we walked at least 6 miles along the Jurassic coastline. The location of the house was perfect as we had lovely walks from the doorstep, down in to the town and we could then pick up the coastal path which took us either towards Charmouth in one direction and Seaton in the other.

Dylan’s parents were new to house sitting and away for 3 weeks, so we ensured they received regular updates by Whatsapp, along with photos and videos of Dylan’s adventures and days out with us to let them know that he was having a really great time with us.  Dylan needed a daily brushing and loved it.  We took him with us everywhere, including Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, West Bay, Seatown, Golden Cap and Beer.

We were delighted with the 5 star review left by their owners Ragnhild and Marc.

If we could give Julie and Jonathan 6* we definitely would! They looked after our Old English Sheepdog, Dylan, and our house, the best possible way. Dylan is nearly 40kgs of happiness, affection and enthusiasm. He is used to long walks and a lot of attention. Julie and Jonathan gave him all of that, and looked after him in the best possible way. In fact, he had a couple of days after we returned when he kept looking for them. He obviously missed his holiday “parents”. Julie and Jonathan seemed to settle in straight away, and Dylan took to them immediately. The communication whilst we were away was great, and we had lovely photos and videos. We were 100% confident our boy was well looked after and happy. Upon return Julie and Jonathan had even done a little grocery shop for us, bought flowers and a card and washed and ironed bedding: the house immaculate. Thank you so, so much! We would love to welcome you back to Lyme Regis in the future.
