We need someone to take care of our black lab, Rex, for 10 days this June.
We have a spacious modern house in Boulder's lower Chautauqua neighborhood, a couple blocks from amazing hiking trails, with a great backyard.
Our dog is a very well behaved 6-year-old black lab who loves all people and dogs and is very good off-leash (even for people he doesn't know well). he loves exercise, so the ideal housesitter would enjoy and love hiking with him, though he's also ok with a shorter walk/hike a couple times a day. He's fine staying at the house alone, but loves company, and we'd rather not have him left for lengthy stretches every day (we both work from home, so he's used to having people around much of the time).
We've done this sort of arrangement informally, mostly through friends/families of our neighbors, in the past when we've been gone for some lengthier stretches in the summer, but this is our first time trying out this service.
We're really just looking for someone who loves dogs and hiking and would take good care of our home, and who would enjoy exploring Boulder in June (or, if it's already a Boulder resident, would appreciate being in a great house/neighborhood in exchange for spending some time with our dog).
