Greetings from California!
My wife and I are looking for someone to care for our super loving 6 year old king charles / poodle mix, Maggie, this December. Maggie is 12 pounds, loves to cuddle and play with both people and other small dogs, and has never met a lap she doesn't love. She "requires" that you bunk together, too. Quite the princess, but we know that it was operator error that got us into the "dog sleeps in the bed with us" problem.
Our home is a one bedroom apartment approx 700 sq ft . We're located across the street from a small park and just a block from Castro street where all of the restaurants and shops are in Mountain View. We're also an hour and a half from Napa, a 40 minute train ride to San Francisco, and about an hour from Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz. There is a pool, hot tub, and gym/clubhouse for your use!
We will be away for 6nights/7 days and need a short stay sitter. Maggie does best with routine and we've decided it will be easier on her to have someone come stay in our home than to board her.
Maggie has a well-controlled autoimmune disease that requires she only eat her specific food and treats (no people food and no food outside of her vet-prescribed kibble). She is not on any medications, and is a perfectly normal, healthy pup 99% of the time. Accordingly, we're looking for someone super responsible - a dog lover committed to taking good care of our pup.
The neighborhood has some wonderful neighbors/friends with dogs that Maggie can play with or just walk around the beautiful parks/streets of Silicon Valley.
We'd prefer someone who is tech savvy enough to send regular updates via text or whatsapp, and maybe have the occasional facetime session so we can see our pup. Yes, we're THOSE kind of dog people. :)
If you are interested, please drop us a line - we'd love to chat!
