Great Chicagoland Home with Walk To Town/Train access
Looking for reliable help with our dog, 2 cats, and home during our various travels. We have 3 pets who are all 10-11 years old -- 2 Tonkinese cats and a Vizsla dog. All of the animals are pretty much big babies! We also have two young children (4YO & 2YO) who the pets are awesome with...we like to think our home is filled with a lot of love! The cats have an automatic litter box which is very easy to change (just throw a bag away and put a new bag in) and the dog eats 1 pill with his food every morning. We have an "in town" 70s home in Hinsdale, IL which was recently updated and allows you to walk to the train and town. Town is full of wonderful boutiques and restaurants...and also a Starbucks ;-) We are also right near a wonderful park with tennis courts, basketball courts, a playground and soccer fields -- Burns Field Park. In the summer months, town has a farmers market every Monday morning, "Uniquely Thursdays" with live music in the park downtown, and other community events. We are new to TrustedHouseSitters but a friend recommended it so we are hoping it will work well! We are also open to local swaps if you are not looking for someone to stay overnight in your home (which is hard with two toddlers in our house).
Our Home & Location
We have an "in town" home in Hinsdale, IL where you can walk to the Metra train and lovely shops/restaurants downtown. The express train takes about 20 minutes to downtown Chicago. It is a lovely location with a wonderful park right next door as well and easy access to the entire Chicagoland region.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feeding the pets daily and letting the dog outside to potty in the fenced yard. 1-2 litter box bag changes. 1 pill with the dog's food daily. The dog will run around the fenced back yard but walks are welcome too.
