Super fun home and fun-loving dogs in need of sitter!
My husband and I love to travel as often as we possibly can, but miss our fur babies terribly when we are away. The only thing that makes our travel possible is finding reliable house/dog sitters who we know we can trust to care for our fun-loving pups in the same way we do.
Our Home & Location
Our house is located in Smyrna, GA, which is 14 miles NW of downtown Atlanta, GA, less than 5 miles from the new Braves Stadium and Battery Park, and only a short 2.5 hr drive to the beautiful mountains of north Georgia. It is an updated 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, plus a finished basement with another bedroom and full bath. I work from home so there is a very nice, well equipped home office. We have a large fenced-in back yard with deck, gas grill, outdoor seating, picnic table, and PING PONG TABLE. In our living area we have a pool table, large smart TV, and indoor swings. If you enjoy cooking, the kitchen is very well equipped and has granite countertops, tile backsplash, and all new applicances. We have a Sonos music system with speakers throughout the house and also on the back porch so you can enjoy streaming music from any source, in any room. And like all good southern homes, we have a huge covered front porch with plenty of seating to watch the rain.
The suburb we live in, Smyrna, has excellent restaurants, bars, and shopping, and even its own micro brewery (http://www.redharebrewing.com). We are only a few miles from access to Georgia's Silver Comet Trail (http://www.silvercometga.com/), where you can enjoy miles of walking, jogging, or bike riding. We have 2 very nice bicycles that you would be welcome to use....
Atlanta is experiencing an urban revival and is a beautiful city to explore. In a profile written for U.S. News & World Report by local expert Jaime Weinstein as part of the ranking's publicity, Atlanta was heralded as a place of Southern charm: "Among the nation's fastest-growing cities, the Georgia capital is attracting newcomers from around the country, and people are looking to this part of the country for culture and commerce like never before. If you learn about everything the city has to offer, it's easy to see why. Atlanta features award-winning restaurants and chefs, iconic locales that rival any across the country — including the Tony Award-winning Alliance Theatre, the CNN Center and the Western Hemisphere's largest indoor aquarium — and the fifth highest rate of job growth in the U.S." + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Responsibilities would be the usual: feed the dogs, snuggle the dogs, make sure the dogs have fresh water, feed the dogs again, snuggle the dogs, repeat. They are use to daily walks, so if you are so inclined to take them I am sure they would appreciate it. If time allows, checking the mail and watering my houseplants would be much appreciated as well!
