For 6 weeks, slightly flexible | Short Medium Term

We need a live-in sitter for our two dachshunds and house plants for about six weeks, from about July 26th to about September 5th.

The dogs don't really need to be walked, but don't mind a spin around the neighborhood. They have their own door to come and go from the back yard, and are crated at night. Their main activity is deciding which chair or sofa might be softest on a given day, and optimistically watching for crumbs to fall from food preparation activities.

The house is about 2500 square feet, three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, two stories with the garage underneath...effectively three stories. There's a hot tub, big deck, etc. Neighborhood is fairly upscale, all owner occupied, about a mile west of Zilker Park off Bee Cave Road.

Downtown is about five minutes away, grocery stores are within blocks, large mall is minutes away, Zilker Park and Barton Springs and the Lady Bird Lake hike and bike trails are within two miles.

Aside from the dogs, the hot tub requires minimal maintenance, the very large yard has to be mowed, and is uphill in all directions. A sprinkler system takes care of lawn watering. There are a lot of plants which need hand watering, but they will mostly be out on the large deck with a hose handy.
