Chiweenie and cat need love and attention for 1 month. I am looking for a petsitter to take care of the 2 dogs, walk once a day in good weather, feed twice a day, but mostly just provide love and company. I also have a cat that does not require much care since she has an automatic litterbox and feeder. She will require some attention and petting if she warms up to you, since she does get lonely when I am away.
I live in a 4 bedroom Cape Cod on a quiet street. Located 2 miles from the University of Delaware in a suburban neighborhood, I am 45 minutes from Philadelphia, 2 hours from D.C and 2.5 hours from NYC. It is possible to get to Philly by train and to NYC or DC inexpensively on a bus from the University of Delaware. The dogs can be left for 4-5 hours alone. However, if you want to go on a day trip you will need to arrange with the young lady next store or the dog walker to feed the dog and let them out. WiFi, Hulu, HBO, Netflix, Paramount, Prime are all available on the Roku box.
My neighborhood backs up to a Nature Preserve and we are blessed with many excellent parks and hiking trails in the area. I am one block from the bus line. There are restaurants, movies and shopping nearby, but a vehicle is required for most. If you have a good driving record, use of the vehicle for local trips only can be arranged.
Your primary responsibility is to care for the pets and keep the house clean and safe. If it should snow I would ask that you clear the front porch and sidewalk.
Josie and Bubba are chihuahua mixes, know basic obedience commands, are very cuddly and afectionate and used to being with me most of the time. Bubba does take medication for separation anxiety, He gets a pill in his food. They do sleep on the bed with me.
Please have a complete profile with references and be able to do a video chat prior to the sit. I leave on December 22 and prefer that you arrive at least one day ahead of time. I return on the night of Jan. 19, in case of delays, please plan to stay until the following day.
