Furry Retriever, in central SF
Why don't we travel more? Well, our dog gets so sad when we leave, and our empty apartment is a shame to waste.

We're 5 blocks from 280, 101, Caltrain. We're not near BART, but close to many Muni lines. Take one bus ride (no transfers) to reach Fisherman's Wharf, Japantown, the Mission, Chinatown, North Beach/Ghirardelli, Polk St, the southern docks of Dogpatch, and the FiDi. Yet there's free parking on the busy strip of restaurants in our neighborhood, because Potrero Hill is both quiet AND centrally located. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Maggiedog needs 3 walks a day spaced out and 2 meals. If people are home, she'll need a bit of time to herself before she will ask for snuggles and affection from people. We prefer sitters who can give her 3 walks a day and can meet her a day or two before (welcome to stay with us the day before we leave for vacation to meet her). For sitters staying 6+ days who want to take a long day trip, please let us make arrangements for her midday walker. Plants: will leave written watering instructions, nothing high-maintenance. Packages: will leave instructions with keys/codes.
