We are a couple recently retired from Uc Santa Cruz. We are now ready to travel and at times we would like to have a trusted sitter to stay with our fur baby Colby. Because we live in a beautiful 55+ community with lots of amenities, it seems like the perfect fit. New home, beachside living, lab lover.
Our Home & Location
We live in a beautiful 2 year new manufactured home located in DeAnza Estates. Large open floor plan with all new furnishings. Our previous home was destroyed in a fire, and now that we have re- built, we want a house sitter that will care for these new features. The home has 3 bedrooms/ 2 baths and is plenty large enough for a couple to have separate space. The community has a heated pool/ clubhouse and workout room for residents. It’s gated and private and quiet. You can walk to local wineries and brew pubs. The city bus stop is right out front of our park. Potentially, not needing a vehicle.
Responsibilities & Pets
Colby is a very well trained service animal who is used to being with People. He is a lover who needs human touch and contact. When he lays on the floor, it’s near you. When you go out the door, he wants to go with you. Of course, when you eat he wants to also. Our yard is fenced, he uses a dog door and can be left alone for a 2-3 hour period. Do you want to go out to dinner or a movie? Sure, he is fine for that, however we want someone here with him most of the time. Someone to take him on walks and to make sure he has no anxiety being left. Not a suitable sitter if you work away from home. Colby is an early riser, likes to be fed right away. (what lab doesn’t!)...perfect alarm clock!
