We are looking for a house/pet sitter to take excellent care of our house and 6-year-old standard poodle. 3 months from September 1, 2014. Our home, with expansive outdoor spaces, is located on the east side of Santa Fe, adjacent to wonderful hiking trails and in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Our poodle enjoys daily walks and hikes; she'll need to visit the groomer 2-3 times during stay. Homeowner will arrange and cover cost. Potential house sitters should be comfortable overseeing garden maintenance and irrigation systems. Homeowner has service providers, but garden and irrigation need to be monitored regularly to be sure all is cared for and working properly. We look forward to hearing from you.
