We are looking for a dog lover to come stay with our 5 year old Aussie, Tova. She is excellent company and very well behaved at home. She has a strong herding instinct when walking and does best with long off leash walks at the array of wonderful dog friendly options for hikes, runs, biking and nature walks from our vast trail system right out our door. She also enjoys a ball throwing session with a chuck it from the fenced back yard or while walking a shorter walk around the neighborhood pond. She does best with one in the am and one in the PM walk before it gets too hot and after it cools down. She needs to be let out to the backyard before bed . When walking on the street she thinks she is protecting her ranch and as a hearding dog and thinks scooters, bikes, runners are all rouge sheep that need herding. She barks at anything moving quickly though With proof of insurance and clean driving record we could loan you a car.
We have a 3 bedroom 3 bath home with view of the Carson Range mountains and an expansive master suite with attached quiet office and fast wifi. We love to cook and have everything you need to make meals at home if you'd like. We have Amazon, netflix and hbo for TV. Comfy beds and linens and rooms with lots of sun. Our home is well located a short walk to an excellent general store and local pizza joint and a 10 minute scenic drive to downtown Truckee with an array of outstanding food, shops, coffee shops,and more. We are 25 minutes to lake.
Two things of note regarding the location. The first is that there the Caldor fire was impacting air quality last month but is almost 75% contained and are AQI's have been ok. The second thing of note is that the garage is currently being remodeled and contractors may be in the garage during this time. We have not been bothered by them, they don't come inside and the office is on the other side of the house and you can't hear anything. Noise should be minimal at that stage of remodeling but a potential sitter should be aware and ask any questions.
We are seeking someone with prior experience who can arrive before we leave on Friday afternoon to show you around and have you meet Tova.
