Metro Atlanta Suburb
I am a homeowner In the Atlanta, Georgia area with two dogs named Stella and Blanche. I just retired after 33 years of teaching and plan to travel over the next few years.
Our Home & Location
I have a 4 bedroom home in Douglasville, Georgia, 20 miles west of Atlanta. There is a Gazebo and two small ponds on the property which backs up to nine acres of unoccupied land. There is also a multilevel deck with a hot tub in the back as well as an attached screened back porch. I am currently in the process ofcreating a zen garden created on one side of the house.
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 an 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 Stella and Blanche. Stella is a medium sized Rottie mix and Blanche is a Staffordshire Bull. Both dogs are very sweet. Stella is shy, but warms up once you get to know her. Blanche is friendly and outgoing.
House sitter would need to walk the girls daily and feed them twice daily. Stella requires medication 2x daily with her meals. 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. Stella is 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. + More info
