Sitter needed for Craftsman house and two snuggly doggies!
Hi! We're two musicians who need someone to watch our house and dogs while we're away!
Our Home & Location
We live in Pasadena, CA, about twenty minutes outside Downtown Los Angeles. Our house is a 1914 Craftsman but every room has been upgraded. Just over 1500 square feet, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Spacious kitchen and nice TV/entertainment set up. Two orange trees on the property that produce excellent fruit! We also have a doggie door to the backyard, so it's not a big deal to leave the dogs alone when you're out. Especially nice if you're a pianist, as we have a Steinway B in the front room of the house!
Responsibilities & Pets
Responsibilities would be taking care of the house (trash, basic upkeep - nothing very difficult), but most importantly, taking care of the dogs. They don't need too much: two meals a day, one walk in the afternoon, and being put to bed in their crates at night. One dog has medication he takes three times a week, but it's very easy to do with some cheese! Disclaimer: the dogs are both very sweet and typically well-behaved/extremely lazy and sleepy, but they do have some little personality quirks. One dog has some aggression issues, but they only come out in very particular circumstances, and I can coach you on how to avoid those. If he doesn't get himself into a situation where he gets worked up, then there are no problems. We've had numerous friends house/dog sit for us before, and once we explain everything to them, it's all been completely fine.
