Live among the Painted Ladies and watch our doggies!
About us: We're a recently married couple hoping to find an animal lover (or couple!) to stay in our Alamo Square apartment with our two dogs while we're out of town. Kacy and I are avid travelers and I frequently travel internationally for work, so we'll need sitters for random weekends as well as occasional longer periods. Due to the popularity of our location, we get lots of responses to our listings, so we apologize for not being able to get back to everyone. If you don't hear from us, we encourage you to reach out again next time!
About our apartment: It's a great, central location where you can live like a local (and skip the expensive hotel prices)! Hayes Valley is one of the most popular neighborhoods in SF right now with easy bus access and a great location right next to beautiful Alamo Square Park....
About our dogs: We have two: Madam and Charlie. Madam just turned 10 in March. She’s an active girl for a senior, although her version of active is 45 minute walks with lots of sniffing! She is on two oral medications for chronic conditions that our sitter will need to administer, but she has no other health concerns. Madam doesn’t love other dogs, i.e. is not playful, but she does fine on walks. Her old age and size means that she can't go without a bathroom break for more than 4-5 hours, so if you're planning to be out exploring all day, we're probably not a match. Charlie just turned 3 and couldn’t be more different! He is a playful, gentle giant with the best manners at the dog park. He loves long walks, the dog park, and playing ball. Both are fully house trained and have a normal schedule of 3x walks a day (first thing in the morning, lunchtime, evenings), and we usually do dog park trips on weekend days. We're hoping to find someone that can keep somewhat close to this schedule.
Otherwise, the apartment is yours to enjoy with no maintenance needed except watering our basil plant!
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Emily and Kacy + More info
