You will be expected to visit the client’s home while they are away, and provide food, water and love to their animals.

In the case of ederley or infirm animals who may not be able to go for walks, you will be expected to spend that time with them, showing them affection and care. Additionally, certain household duties will become your responsibility such as mail collection, open and closing curtains and energy conservation (turn OFF the lights!!).
