Two Sweet Old Mutts in North County San Diego, house on canyon
We're an active, curious, dog, book + movie-loving family, responsible neighbors who value conscientiousness and consideration. We prefer experienced non-smoking house-sitter(s) with multiple references and Enhanced or at least Standard Security level(we hope you can understand us wanting that peace of mind). Hoping to find mature people who are also good listeners, as we aspire to be in that role. :)
Our Home & Location
We love our comfortable, smoke-free home. There's a smallish, well-loved garden and backyard with views, built-in barbeque and firepit. We live on a canyon and can hike out from our backyard; there's also a little town center about half a mile away with restaurants, wine bar, yoga studio, cafe, nail salon, grocery store and bank. We live in a gated community in the hills east of Carlsbad, a few miles from the beach. We are about 20-40 minutes from the Safari Park, Balboa Park, Lego Land, etc 20 minutes from Thich Nhat Hahn's Deer Park monastery in Escondido(which offers free Days of Mindfulness to the public). Good internet access but cancelled our cable TV recently(don't miss it). Lots of books in the house.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our dogs are super sweet, old but still healthy. They sleep a lot and are loving, are easy. They need 2-3 short walks per day and are perfectly housebroken, indoor dogs. We don't leave them outside unattended because of coyotes. They're loveable buggers, even like to eat their vegetables.
Would like someone who could do a bit of gardening 2-3x/wk, just watering 10(?) potted plants outside, 2 min job.
