We plan to be gone from June 28 to July 6 so we will need a house/dog sitter. We would like the sitter to arrive the day before we leave to get acquainted with our dog Rebel. He will need feeding, walking and loving. Rebel looks like a Belgian Malinois (smaller version of a German Shepherd) (See picture of him in our picture gallery.). He is an indoor dog, but loves to be taken on walks. We have a "doggie door" that he uses to go into the side yard to go "potty". We feed him in the morning when we get up and in the evening about 5pm and he usually has a treat or two during the day as well as some liquid medicine every other day. Rebel loves to be near his humans. We have a two story home in Modesto, CA. The home has central heating and air conditioning, cable TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, wifi and a swimming pool for hot weather. Modesto is in the Central Valley of Northern California. It is about a 2 hour drive from San Francisco and about 2.5 to 3 hours from Yosemite National Park. It is about 2.5 hours to the coastal towns of Monterey and Carmel. It is about hours to Lake Tahoe. In addition to caring for Rebel, we ask that you keep the house clean and water a few plants. The swimming pool will also need a little care to keep it clean for swimming. We would like to have non-smokers who will love Rebel and take good care of him and the house in exchange for lodging in our home and a chance to see some of the nearby sites before or after your stay in our home. We look forward to hearing from you. Please send numbers and addresses for your references.
