Approximate location


We are looking for an experienced, non-smoking pet and house sitter for approximately 3 weeks in June. We travel frequently and are looking for someone that we can depend on and trust with our dog.
The home is a work in progress/fixer-upper. It is not a show-room perfect home and many things are being worked out, torn down, fixed, and repaired. If you are ok with 2x4's holding up the stove top, read on!

What responsibilities are required of house sitter?

We don't need much - just the peace of mind knowing our dog is being looked after and our house is lived in!
--2 daily walks for our 11 year old Border Collie. One in the morning before 7am (it gets hot!) and one in the afternoon after 5pm. We are just a quarter mile from a park where we usually take her. She should remain on leash and the pet sitter should be aware of other dogs in the area that may be aggressive.
--Clean up of dog poop in the yard.
--Basic watering of the citrus trees and some plants in the front and back.
--Keep the home as tidy as you found it.
--Bring in the mail.
--Take trash bins to the curb once a week.
--We work from home so our dog is not used to being alone for more than 5-6 hours at a time so we would expect someone to be able to be here within that timeframe.
••••Couples are welcome, non-smoking only, prefer House sitter with experience and TrustedHousesitter references.
