Metro Atlanta Suburb
Hello! I ‘m Elizabeth and I live in Douglasville, Georgia, a suburb of the Atlanta metro area with my two girls Blanche and Ruby Jean. They are the sweetest canines in the world! I just retired after 34 of teaching, and I hope to travel a bit over the next few years. This is a great website, and I’ve already had two great sitters. I do prefer a settled, experienced couple to sit for my girls, but I will consider other sitters. I have had Blanche for four years and I recently adopted Ruby. The two girls, both rescues, get along well and are a delight to be with.
Our Home & Location
I have a 4 bedroom home in Douglasville, Georgia, 20 miles west of Atlanta. The neighborhood is adjacent to a golf course with paths to the course from neighborhood roadways and is a beautiful place to walk the dogs. You can also take a shortcut through the golf course and arrive at the town square in about 15 minutes. There are several great restaurants downtown as well as a cultural arts center where you can attend community events.
Atlanta is accessible within a 20 minute car ride and offers many opportunities for fine dining and entertainment as well as many historic sites. The mountains are a couple of hours away as are state parks. One particularly lovely area is Sweetwater Park, just 15 minutes away....
I would like for whomever accepts the assignment to come a day or so early to get acquainted and allow the girls to get to know you while I am still around. You could also get to know some of the neighbors who would be helpful should you need anything. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Take care of two female dogs named Ruby and Blanche.
House sitter would need to walk the girls daily and feed them twice daily. The kids across the street like to help with walking them from time to time.
House sitter(s) should keep the house clean and give the girls lots of love and attention. Ruby is a new rescue and a bit shy at first, but will warm up to you. She is afraid of loud noises. Blanche is very friendly from the start and is not afraid of anything! She loves everybody.
