My husband and I are going to out of the country for a month in Sept and are looking for a house sitter willing to watch our 3 year-old black lab mix. He is an energetic pup who loves going on runs or hikes but also enjoys just playing fetch in the yard or cuddling on the couch. He is overall well-mannered but gets excited by the odd squirrel or bird.
We live in a small bungalo near downtown Salt Lake City, which is located at the foot of the Wasatch mountain range and easily accessible for countless outdoor activities. We live near Liberty Park and the 9th and 9th neighborhood, so there are great places to walk or run, with plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby. We are also a short drive from many of the fantastic trails in and around Salt Lake City. Our go-to places are the Bonneville Shoreline Trail and Millcreek (popular with dog owners) but we also enjoy driving up to Park City to escape the heat in the summer.
We have a small backyard with a garden - which was not planted this year, so very little maintenance required. The lawn may need to be cut and you may need to scoop up some doggie poop, and there are 5 low-maintenance houseplants, but that's it. We have high speed WiFi, A/C, W/D and a dishwasher. No cable but we have Netflix, Hulu, Amazon prime, and HBOGo. Mostly we are looking for someone who can take care of our fur-baby while we are away!
