For 5 weeks | Short Medium Term

House/Pet-sitter needed for townhouse for 5 weeks (September 2 - October 7, 2019) while I am traveling. Dates are set but sitter can come a day earlier and leave a day later if needed.

I am a retired librarian in my late-60s seeking someone to stay in my 3-bedroom townhouse and take care of my two sweet dachshunds, ages 6 and 12, while I am away. 

The townhouse is located in Rockville, MD about 12 miles from Washington, DC.  It is near public transportation (bus, Metro), and close to shops, restaurants, etc., and while the neighborhood is quiet, it is situated by major arteries. Easy access to the Nation's capital's many cultural activities.


 The townhouse consists of 3 floors--kitchen/dining room/living room downstairs; 3 bedrooms (1 basically used as a study and storage while I am away) upstairs; laundry and multi-purpose room in walk-out basement, and wrap around deck. Includes 2 bathrooms; 2 half-bathrooms and 2 working fireplaces. Fios TV/Internet/wireless access package.  There is 1 assigned parking space and additional parking available.  Photos available upon request.

RESPONSIBILITIES: In addition to house-sitting, the person would be responsible for walking my dogs twice a day and feeding them, and mowing the grass once or twice if needed.  There is the possibility that my nephew might be able to help with that.

REQUIREMENTS: Experience with dogs, especially rescued dogs and/or dachshunds a plus.  House-sitting experience with good references required.
