Ulti-mutt job vacancy opens up near Honiton as holiday home seeks Fido’s feedback

The ulti-mutt job vacancy has opened up in East Devon for one lucky dog and its well-behaved owner.

Lakeview Manor, in Dunkeswell, near Honiton, is hiring a holiday home tester – but they must have four legs, a waggy tail, like chasing sticks, balls and squirrels, rolling in unspeakable smells, and enjoy plenty of sniffs and snoozing.

The holiday company’s canine contract includes up to a two-week lakeside lodge stay and £300 in return for fido’s feedback – taking the lead in sniffing out the best bits of the holiday home.

The role for one lucky rover has been created with plans in mind to build an extra 18 dog-friendly holiday lodges in 2021.

A Lakeview Manor spokesperson said: “We hope our new canine recruit will help us by giving us some very important feedback about how the holiday homes work for them, as well as their owners, which we can incorporate into our planning.”

The ideal canine candidate will be expected to:

  • Find the best spot in the lodge for a tummy rubs.
  • Take a walk on the dog-friendly trails in Lakeview Manor’s grounds.
  • Find the site’s best place for fetching sticks.
  • Explore the local area, Lyme Regis, or the Blackdown Hills.
