We are looking for someone to look after our 1 year old American Akita named Bouie, our 7 chickens, and to keep our house maintained and tidy.  

We live on 20 acres outside of Bismarck in a rural area of Arkansas.  Our house is 2 stories and set into a small hill with a view of the property. We have a porch that wraps around the majority of the house and a fenced in backyard with a pool.  The property is a mix of woods, open areas, and a pond.  There is often wildlife in the area to be seen.  

Bouie the Akita is a very sweet and laid back boy.  He attends dog training lessons with a private instructor that trains police dogs, so apart from some puppy excitement he has yet to grow out of, he is very well behaved.  Dispite the training we do with Bouie, he is a big dog weighing over 100lbs and thus we need someone that would be comfortable with a dog that size.  He is always happy to great you when you come home, this is where the puppy excitement comes in, and is typically very laid back.  He enjoys playing in the back yard or on the porch, or just curling up for a good nap.  One of his favorite napping spots is in the master bathroom, which is where he sleeps at night.  Bouie has a thick coat so he can't spend all day outside since it can get very hot in the summers here.  Overall he is a very sweet and quiet dog.

We have 7 chickens that are very low maintenance and lay fresh eggs daily.  They have large self feeders that need refilling every few days.  

We would need the mail checked and to please notify us if anything important comes in.  Being in a rural area, we do not have trash pick up.  There are two trash drop offs located between five and ten minutes away that are open Monday - Saturday.  Our property is located about 20 minutes from Arkadelphia and about 30 minutes from Hot Springs.  We typically enjoy a hot and humid summer with plenty of summer rain showers.
