We are looking for a petsitter (or a couple) for our dogs Bergschrund and Nyx. They are medium sized (35 lbs) cattle dog mixes (though you might never guess that). They need two 1.5 hour walks every day to keep their energy in check. They are both about 3 years old and very healthy. We love them far too much and usually they road trip with us, but this trip they can't make as we'll be in Europe. Both are loving dogs; Nyx is over-friendly and can surprise people with her submissive smile, and Berg can be anxious and is barky if he is scared. We require a smart, dog-savvy sitter who uses positive reinforcement training only.
Our house is a small seashore cottage that is sweet and quirky. We ask that you treat our home well and keep it clean. Absolutely no smoking/vaping in the house. We also ask that you water the plants as needed, which is either easy (you can do it while you are rinsing off the dogs after returning from the beach if they have gone in the water) or difficult (because Berg loves to play in the hose spray and won't leave you in peace to water the plants). Our home is three blocks from the ocean, and within walking distance of several restaurants. The neighborhood is an interesting combination of local surfers and beach vacationers, with lots of walking traffic but no sidewalks and narrow streets. It's a great place for beach walks or to just hang out. If you want to mix it up with forest walks, there are several public lands 15 minute drives away where you and the dogs can romp in the redwoods.
