Spend your Thanksgiving in the East Bay Area taking care of our wonderful fur babies!
We are looking for someone who can take care of our 1 high-energy dog and 1 indoor cat at our 5-bedroom house in Walnut Creek, CA. Our dog, Kona, loves to play/retrieve since he is a rare retriever breed: Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. We will be going to Florida for Thanksgiving and our regular house sitters are not available. We are looking for someone who can stay at the house and not be out more than 4-6 hrs a day since our dog is used to having one of us home most of the time. Both my husband and I work from home so our pets are a bit spoiled. Our house is in the East Bay Area and our yard is large with an inground pool and a lot of space. We do have a car that the sitter can use (must have good driving record) while here.
Our Home & Location
Walnut Creek, CA is in the East Bay Area and offers both hiking, trails, outdoor fun as well as great shopping and restaurants. BART is also available in 8-10min via car to head into the city of San Francisco. Many parks are accessible!
Responsibilities & Pets
Since Kona is a high-energy dog, we do need someone who can walk him or take him on a hike (trail accessible near home) and play with him in our yard. Like our regular house sitters, we really want someone who can truly enjoy Kona rather then wanting a calm, quiet dog. Max is pretty simple since she is an indoor cat, she can be grouchy so we just don't recommend handling her so much. Just feeding her and occasionally recognition of her is great!
