My wife, son, and I are regular users of HOUSECARERS and we need ONE reliable, dog-caring house sitter, preferably A WOMAN, for our home, a beautiful 1950s 3 bedroom private house in the hills Echo Park ), near downtown LA. From early Saturday January 1 - Sunday Jan. 8.
NO PAY. Free rent = $2300/month
House has terraced gardens, wireless internet, washer-dryer, and a beautiful 270 degree view of LA.
Our 7 year old, 95 pound, and friendly dog, Cassius, needs someone to pay attention to him, walk him in wonderful nearby Elysian Park once a day (more if possible), and not be working 9-5. He can be left alone for 3-4 hours. He barks at strangers at our gate, but never bites. He can be "bribed" with dog treats and be very sweet, calm and loveable, once he gets to know you. He can go in a car, behave in groups, and walk off leash.
We also need housesitter to water plants and keep them happy.
A great situation for the right person: quiet, responsible, a homebody. Need car for steep hill.
There is a downstairs "subtenant" in the house, a 30 year old female who works for Elon Musk's Space X, but she works from about 8 am - 5 pm, and you will rarely see her. (She has a private entrance.)
We would want to meet the potential Sitter ASAP at our home if possible, and then to have the Sitter "test sit" Cassius for 2 days on Dec 29 & 30 (not NYE Dec 31, but possible), to get Cassius acquainted with the Sitter, to have the sitter learn Cassius’ Feeding & Walking patterns, and so both parties feel comfortable with our "guy".
Please contact me, Eric, to set up the house/dog sit.
