We live in beautiful Bend, Oregon, a mountain town of about 90K people approximately 3.5 hours from Portland. We're looking for a sitter for our sweet older dog (Zoe) while we're on vacation for about 10 days in January 2020.
Zoe is relatively low maintenance. She needs 3-4 short walks per day and three meals with meds (pills only). She loves human companionship and belly rubs but does not like other dogs. Also, she’s deaf (though that’s never been a problem) and must be on leash at all times when outside.
Our house is located about 3 miles west of Bend’s downtown next to a gorgeous 800 acre park and within easy driving distance of several breweries, grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants, etc. The house is relatively new, fairly large and very comfortable. The master bedroom is on the upstairs level though we could set up a queen bed in the office downstairs, which has a full bath. The house has wifi but no cable TV. We do have a Roku with access to Amazon Prime and Netflix.
Bend gets snow in the winter! If you love winter sports, Mt. Bachelor is a short 30 minute drive from our house. Beautifully-groomed cross country skiing trails are even closer.
If skiing isn’t your thing, hiking, running and mountain biking are often possible on the trails near the house during the winter. Bend is known for it’s fantastic breweries (more than 20) and there are a number of surprisingly good restaurants given the size of our town.
We’re looking for a mature couple who love dogs and will be at home much of the time to look after our pup and the house (e.g., water a few plants). Non-smokers only and no drug use (including marijuana). Also, no additional guests in the house, please.
Thanks for looking at our profile. We look forward to meeting you!
