For 2 weeks | Short Term

Spend two weeks on the beautiful Central Coast of California caring for two friendly and active Aussies (a 12 year old and a 2 year old), two self-sufficient cats (12 and 17), and 11 chickens. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the lovely 2.5 acre property on a private pond. The house has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, with a recently remodeled kitchen. The house is within the city limits of Atascadero so it's just minutes away from markets, etc., but it feels like you're in the country as it's on the edge of town in a neighborhood of mostly 5-acre properties. Atascadero is in the heart of San Luis Obispo County in the Central Coast area of California. There is so much to enjoy in this beautiful area: hiking, biking, kayaking, surfing, wine tasting, etc. 

The dogs are very active and need a good, long-ish walk or run daily and feeding twice daily. We have a pen for them for occassions where you can't take them with you when you're out exploring the area, but they are accustomed to having company 24/7 so we ask that they not be left alone for more than 8 hours. The kitties are indoor/outdoor cats, coming and going through a pet door. They have a dry food demand feeder so they don't need much except to be fed their morning treat of wet food. The chickens are practically maintenance free with the major task being collecting thier eggs daily and to keep an eye on the food and water levels in their feeder/waterer. The only other duties we expect of our sitters is to do light housekeeping simply to keep the house tidy and to leave everything in the same shape it was in upon arrival.
