We're seeking a sitter for our sweet 16 lb male cockapoo who needs a decent length walk in the morning and a short walk in the afternoon. He's a cuddly, "sprightly" 11 yr old little guy who is very quiet and low maintenance. He can be by himself for a number of hours during the day as we are often gone for work. I have a few potted herbs in the kitchen that need water every days. Would be great if you have a green thumb!
Our house is in a somewhat rural area about 10 minutes drive north of the Plaza called El Prado. All the houses are on at least one acre. We face hundreds of acres of Pueblo land on one side and a conservation easement on the opposite side. (You CAN see our neighbor across the yard to the southeast.) Our home is an older adobe with viga and latilla ceilings, a working living room kiva and tons of character. The main house is 1 BR, 1 Bath. There is also a 1 BR, 1 Bath guest suite with a separate entrance. The house sitting is pretty simple although our little dog "LP" does like to sleep on the bed at night. :-) While everything is in good condition and working fine, we would prefer a couple with one person familiar with "systems". Would love to find sitters who could come periodically for anywhere between 2 days and 2 weeks but a single stay would be fine as well.
