Pet and House Sitting - Upper Marlboro
My husband and I have been together and living in our current home for 20 years. We are professionals by day and dog training enthusiasts by night. Our passion is to rescue dogs and help them find their forever happy. My elderly mother also lives with us in a basement apartment so that we can contribute to her care. We love to go on long walks, hikes, kayaking and fishing for our down time and always try to take our dogs with us. Being a part of nature both helps us and the dogs find balance!
Our Home & Location
We live in a single family home on 7+ acres in Upper Marlboro. We have a few neighbors, but do not live in a community. The house was built in 1956 and is a beautiful rambler set next to the woods.
Responsibilities & Pets
We are looking for a house sitter to let our bulldog out (he doesn't require much exercise) and work/play/walk the large 90lbs 16mos old German Shepherd. Both dogs are trained and are good friendly dogs. Rocco is more independent and likes to just chill and get an occasional butt scratch. Jager requires attention, focused play or training to help burn off his young dog energy. He needs at least (2-3) walks and/or focused play sessions a day so he doesn't eat the house. We are looking for someone who likes either long walks or jogs/runs. Rocco will simply walk outside watch the big puppy play and wonder why he wants to expend so much energy. He will occasionally play outside with Jager, but that lasts less than 10 mins and he is ready for a nap. Food for them is simple and clean, and would be pre-portioned to simplify feeding during our away time. They are fun and easy dogs to love and care for with just a few simple guidelines.
My mother also lives with us and has a single cat. During our absence we would be looking for someone to address feed Pepper and address the litter box 1x per day. Other than that, she is an old cat that just pretty much lies around.
