Our home is located in a very lovely and safe neighborhood about 10 minutes from downtown Portland. It sits on a hill with a beautiful view out the back. The house is small but bright and cozy. We have two energetic male Boston Terriers, and a Toy Poodle, (all of the dogs are crate-trained). We also have two indoor/outdoor kitties. Our large deck and fenced-in backyard accommodate the dogs' needs regarding exercise. We will be leaving on our trip the morning of May 27, so would like our sitter to arrive on the 26th to get acquainted with us and the pets, etc. We will be returning the evening of June 6.
