Luxury home in suburban Denver with senior Dachshund and 2 year old Bichon
We are looking for someone special to look after our senior Dachshund who has mobility problems and needs extra attention, our active and playful Bichon, and our very comfortable and clean home, 20 minutes south of Denver.
Our Home & Location
Our home is located in a quiet neighbourhood 20 minutes south of Denver. We have a large completely fenced backyard with a lovely furnished deck. It is a great place to sit outside with the dogs on the many beautiful days in the spring, summer and fall. The house has a large eat-in kitchen, 2 half baths on the ground level, a comfy family room with tv and fireplace, formal dining and living room, upstairs laundry room, basement guest suite with bedroom, bathroom, living room with tv, small kitchen and gym room plus 3 additional guest bedrooms upstairs. We are within 10 minutes of Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, 2 Kroger supermarkets, shops, restaurants and the freeway. The mountains are within easy reach, as is downtown Denver for museums, theater, music events and more restaurants. There are parks and walking trails nearby for lovely dog walks, and our home is on a 1.3 mile neighbourhood loop. We are lucky to have an average of 300 days of sunshine here and the beautiful mountains nearby.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our adorable Dachshund, Cody, is 15 years old and has very limited mobility. He needs to be carried in and out for potty breaks every 3-4 hours. He has a doggy wheelchair he can use but gets around the wood floors in the house mainly by scooting. He requires a couple of medications with his meals which are twice per day. He loves attention and lying on the sofa in the evening while we watch tv. Our 2 year old Bichon, Poppy, is very affectionate, playful and easy to take care of. She loves walks, exploring the backyard and lots of cuddles. She does require frequent brushing to keep her coat from tangling. Both dogs are used to sleeping in their crates at night. There may be some outdoor plant watering, depending on the time of year.
