AS Dobermans go, Lexi is pretty relaxed. She is good natured and very gentle, even with people she hasn’t met before. However, she is also a well-trained guard dog and on the right command can act the big defender without hesitation.
Because of her sweet underlying nature her owner Jacqui is happy leaving her at home with housesitters when the family goes on holiday. This arrangement suits them perfectly. How long have they been using housesitters?
Jacqui was first introduced to housesitting by Julie her sister who lives in Spain. Julie and her family would visit Jacqui in Oxford every summer leaving their dogs, cats and donkeys in Malaga safely in the hands of experienced sitters. Then one summer Jacqui asked who was actually looking after the menagerie and their large property while they were on holiday. “Well housesitters of course!” said Julie. “You register and build a profile on the website, it’s all very discrete and secure and there’s help with a human voice if you need it.
“When you are ready you post your dates in a housesit advert, the sitters apply directly – it’s very helpful and the sitters are free! Of course it’s best to plan early to make sure you get a good choice of housesitters – two months ahead should do it. Post your advert as soon as you have booked your flights then you know your dates.”
