Need house/dog sitter for 6 months
I love traveling and I love my pup. I will be going to Botswana for almost six months so will need a reliable dog/house sitter. My dog, Yiska is 4 years old and an energetic love. He loves people and cats, but is not always fond of other dogs. He has a large yard with an electric fence so he spends a lot of time out doors. He loves to go for walks also. He can stay alone for a few hours but because I am retired he is used to me being here most of the time, so will need someone who is not going to be gone all day. He does like to ride in cars and has his own blanket and seatbelt.
Our Home & Location
I have a one bedroom apartment downstairs from the homeowners. I have gotten their permission to have a sitter while I am gone. I live on a mountaintop in the foothills of the Sierra mountains. I am about 2 hours north of Yosemite NP and about 3 hours east of San Francisco. It is beautiful here with some snow in the winter and not overly hot in the summer. There is plenty of hiking and skiing close by. A car is a must as it is about 25 minutes to the store. But it is really so beautiful and peaceful here. Nice neighbors surround me.
Responsibilities & Pets
Yiska will require much love and attention as well as normal stuff like feeding and going for walks. Will make arrangement with the local vet to make sure the sitter has access in an emergency. Pretty easy going household and dog.
