We are looking for a house sitter for our house and 3 (three) dogs from June 17 through June 30, 2019
Lovely, brand new house just outside Sacramento with garden (currently being landscaped but should be done early June) with a vegetable garden and fountain. Great room, 2 bedrooms, study, well appointed kitchen. 1 medium dog and 2 smaller dogs.
In an active adult, gated community for 55+, but younger sitters are fine! Just off highway 5, near the airport and occasional plane noise. 8 min from Hwy 80, 20 min from downtown Sacramento. Next to a green belt with nice walks beside a man-made lake and a canal with interesting wildlife. Sacramento is known for its farm to table restaurants, its abundance of craft breweries (over 50) its 25 mile walking and bike trail along the American River, its mild winters and cooling delta breeze during its hot, dry summers.
Minimal yard maintenance required - twice daily dog walks and daily poop clean up necessary. You must be in good shape to walk dogs, they are strong and sometimes pull. HD TV, high speed internet, no smoking. We leave detailed notes for dog and house care. We expect the house to be kept clean and tidy. Our son lives in Sacramento and is available to answer questions and oversee any pet care issues.
Dogs: Older labradoodle 12 years , 40 lbs - very sweet but timid on a leash and 2 basenjis, 22 and 25 lbs - brother and sister, 4 years - very energetic and enthusiastic but crate trained. All are fixed.
