Need loving House/Pet sitter for our spunky Sr. pup during upcoming trips
We have a 13 year old pup named Nelli who we'd like to remain at home during a couple upcoming trips. She's pretty a pretty chill dog - she'll snuggle up to you on her own terms and loves to sleep next to you on the couch (or bed). She is always very excited to see you when you get home. She doesn't bark much - except at doorbells (even the ones on tv) and to let you know she's out of water.
She requires meds (usually she'll take by food but you've got to be prepared to give them to her if she doesn't eat) 2x per day for congestive heart failure and also requires short walks (around the block) 2x per day. She has pops of energy and doesn't seem to realize she has a heart condition....
We'd love to have you come a day early so we and Nelli can meet you and show you the house. We spent 15 months traveling around the world and house/pet sat through trustedhousesitters so have experience on the other side of things. + More info
Our Home & Location
We have a 1 bedroom apartment in Denver's Uptown/North Capitol Hill near 17th Ave restaurant row, in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Denver (lots of great big homes). Very walkable and near lots of public transportation, 20 mins walk to downtown, city bikes on our block, the complex has pool, gym, lounge areas, etc. Photos to come soon.
Responsibilities & Pets
Give love, snuggles and pets.
Give meds (by hiding in food) 2x per day roughly 12 hours apart....
Walk 2x per day
Change out pee pads as needed (some of her meds are diuretics so she pees a lot)
Keep her stress level low, she can get dizzy if over excited. + More info
