We are a happy active family with two grown children, which I guess makes us "empty nesters." At last we can spread our wings and travel, which is why I'm looking for a pet sitter. We believe in fun, honesty, healthy food... and voting. This list could probably be longer. I work in public health and my husband, is a recently retired news man, now turned bike mechanic. We live near miles of bike path that connects to the Atlanta Beltline and Piedmont Park, and a public golf course. We're also just a 15 min stroll to restaurants and a grocery store, and 5 minutes from a bus stop that can take you to midtown Atlanta, more stores and entertainment.
Our Home & Location
Our newly renovated 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom two story home is on a tree -lined street in a historic neighborhood and friendly community within easy access to many of Atlanta's attractions. It's surrounded by green space, Candler Park, bike and walking trails, tennis courts and a public golf course. If you like to be in the city and still have the benefits of nature and friendly neighbors you will like it here. It's not unusual when we're walking at night to hear frogs and owls. We're a15 minute walk to a grocery store and restaurants in Candler Park village, a super friendly community, and about 30 minute walk to music and theatre venues. a 3 minute walk to a bus stop that can connect you to other entertainment and services. You can easily bike on a trail to the Belt Line, a great place for people watching, more restaurants and entertainment. We have a charming courtyard for outdoor space but no lawn, which is why Otis gets one good long off -or on -leash walk per day, plus 2 shorter ones. The house comes with bikes and ten visits to Emory University' outdoor Olympic-size pool, gym, and tennis courts. There is also a public pool , park and tennis courts within walking distance.
Responsibilities & Pets
Otis thrives on a one 45-60 minute or longer walk per day with two shorter ones. We usually take him on the long one in the am, then another one late afternoon and before bedtime. He loves being with people and going in the car. Whenever possible he comes with me inside stores. He also comes to friends' homes. He's very people centric, smart and likes to be paid attention to. Any pet sitter I've had in the past has really enjoyed his company. Please only apply if you're a non-smoker and have experience looking after larger dogs.
