For 6-8 weeks | Short Medium Term

    Looking for a house sitter to take care of my one male 12 year old German Sheppard as well as a large fenced yard, garden and orchard area. The home is a well maintained two story 1800 sq ft  home built in the last 30 years. Home has all the normal amenities, dishwasher, washer , dryer, etc.. There is also a new ductless heat/cooling unit to provide both heat and air conditioning. The house has a master suite on the main floor as well as upstairs bathroom and bedrooms. Attached via a covered breezeway is a two  car storage garage with a second complete kitchen and utility room. There is also a 20x12 ft sq ft covered outdoor barbecue area complete with an outdoor sink, barbecue, dining table, dog bathtub and grooming area immediately off the breezeway.    The home sits on 5 acres on a private road in a country setting zoned 1 home/5 acres. Despite the rural setting the home is located within 3-4 miles of a major shopping area(Costco, Home Depot, Winco,etc.). The home has a large fenced yard, garden and orchard area. The area is fenced with 1100 lineal ft of 6 ft high welded wire fencing.                                                                                                                                                                                             I have a  12 year old  male German Sheppard ( K not his real name)). He was rescued at age 2 . He is  a family pet. He has  not been trained for protection. K stays in the house at night and inside/outside during the day weather permitting. K is  kept inside the house whenever I leave. K goes swimming every Tuesday from 3-4 pm at a therapy pool located approxiamately 12 miles away.I have a dedicated "dog car" for this.  K is to remain on the property when not swimming or going to the Vet., etc. as he does  not get along with other dogs  The garden and greenhouse are on a timed irrigation system. Approxiamately 80% of the fruiting plants and flowers in the yard are also on timed watering systems. Whomever stays here should have yard and gardening skills. l  can arrange for someone to mow my lawn if operating a riding lawn mower is a problem. A basic understanding of drip irrigation systems would be helpful. On the bright side you can expect to eat fresh cherries, blueberries, raspberries, tayberries, goumis, lettuce, etc. during your stay.  The home is located in Northern Puget Sound 25 miles south of the Canadian border. Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands as well as Mount Baker are all within a one to one half hour drive. This is truely a beautiful area.
