I travel frequently for work and my high school senior daughter usually takes care of our two dogs when I am away. However, when we are both gone it's often challening to find a reliable dog-sitter who is willing to stay with the dogs for a few nights.
We have this situation next weekend on December 8-10, 2017. I would like this to be the start of an ongoing arrangement, if possible.
We are conveniently located in Burien, just 10 minutes west of the SeaTac airport via Hwy. 518, and just minutes south of downtown Seattle and the waterfront via Hwy 509. We have an newer home in a small, gated neighborhood, just a short walk from a Trader Joe's. We are just off the main north-south street in Burien, which has some excellent restaurants and bars, and a quaint old town shopping district.
To the north is West Seattle and Alki Point, which is a nice "base" from which to go sightseeing and explore the area. West Seattle also has a year round farmers market on Sundays, and Burien's famer's market is on Thursdays.
We have two small dogs, a 7.5lb Chihuahua named Tweek, and a 25lb border collie mix named Butters. The dogs are both rescues and have very unique personalities.
Tweek is a borderline sociopath and is the slowest to warm up to people. Once he warms up, which can take awhile, he is extremely affectionate and loyal. Having someone available who Tweek can get to know would be ideal, rather than continuing to start from scratch each time.
Butters was a southern California rescue, and tends to be a bit nervous with strangers. But, ignoring him and letting him warm up at his own pace always seems to work. Bacon and chicken strips also help the process along.
(Additionally, my girlfriend has an incredibly mellow, affectionate, and friendly Chow named Lola. She is the lover and lowest maintenance of the three. They live on Mercer Island. But, it would be nice to have someone who might be willing to watch all three at my place on occasion when we travel together.)
My daughter and I two vehicles, a Lincoln MKX and a Chevy HHR, either of which would be available to you if need be. We also have bicycles, which you are welcome to use. So, if you are an adventurous and patient pet lover, we look forward to hearing from you!
