Mature, reliable, honest, clean, quiet persons, friendly and respectful who love animals. Our pets are our priority. They have never been in kennels as they are part of our family. Responsibilities would be to care for our pets and home as if they were your own. However, there is only limited walking near the house for dogs to do their "duty". My home in Mandeville is approximately 30 miles from New Orleans. We are a little over a mile from Lake Ponchatrain and part of the New Orleans–Metairie–Kenner metropolitan area. Mandeville is a gem all itself. It is perfect for nature lovers with the lake and wooded areas and Tammany Trace, a leafy, 31-mile hiking and biking trail, and has wonderful restaurants and shopping. Historic New Orleans is only a ride across the Causeway. Duties include affectionate care of a shy Chihuahua and older Bichon, two friendly cats and one shy cat that hide much of the time. The dogs like to sleep on the bed. My home is in a quiet area of friendly neighbors. I have TV and wifi connection. Time would permit trips to New Orleans. I would like the sitter to spend as much time as is possible with me before my trip. You will need to provide your own transportation. Please no smokers. Because I have family and friends in the area, I am able to be flexible on the time period. I need a sitter for four weeks, but can supplement with others for a sitter who is able to do only 2 or 3 weeks. If you are interested in this post and enjoy animals and New Orleans area, I am anxious to discuss this job with you and look forward to the possibility of a mutually enjoyable opportunity for both of us.
