We are looking for a house sitter to take care of our loveable, energetic cavapoo (Frodo) for several days over the Thanksgiving holiday.
No special maintenance is needed for our house or yard, just plenty of attention and play with the dog. He loves to play chase, fetch (sort of), and tug in the fenced back yard and go on walks (especially to the neighborhood coffee stand where they give him treats! :) ).
Our house is on a quiet lane with a large shopping mall, lots of stores for Black Friday shopping, and many restaurants within a 5-7 minute drive. The Puget Sound is 15 minutes drive, downtown Seattle is 25 minutes. For public transportation, there is a large transit center with good connections to downtown and the airport within a 15 minute walk.
Our well maintained tri-level house has two sets of 8 stairs between floors. The guest room has a queen-sized bed.
Because we (husband and wife) both work from home, Frodo isn't used to being alone for more than about two hours at a stretch. We can provide a dog seat belt and a special "hammock" that covers the back seat of a small to midsized vehicle if you want to go on a longer outing and take him along.
Thank you for your interest! I'm happy to answer any questions.
