Asheville Pet Sit Memorial Day Weekend
Easy pet sit offers opportunity to explore all Asheville has to offer while pet-sitting two dogs and one cat in a new house on a quiet cul-de-sac just 10 minutes from downtown and Haywood St.
We have a guest room, so you could stay a night longer on either end of the weekend as needed. We will leave early Saturday morning and return Monday afternoon. Friday arrival preferred.
Our Home & Location
Our home is on a quiet cul-de-sac just outside the Asheville city limits. You'll be in reasonable distance to The Biltmore House, fantastic restaurants, breweries, live music, cultural and artists events, etc. Everything Asheville has to offer!
A big Ingles market with a satellite Starbucks is within a 3 minute drive, as is a Walgreens (with Redbox). There's pizza and Mexican in the neighborhood. Asheville has a Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Earth Fare, Green Life and independent local food stores, as well as Harris Teeter all within 15-20 minutes of the house. There's also an outlet mall and a regular mall, so all levels of shopping are available....
We have a clean 3-bedroom 2-bath one-level house with an open floor plan. We have hammocks for the front yard and small sitting area on the front porch. It's a quiet residential neighborhood. We purposely do not have cable or wi-fi, but do have cables to manually plus a laptop into the internet. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
This is an easy sit! All pets are friendly and well-behaved. The cat will be set for the weekend, just needing love. He's weird, but sweet and social.
We have two dogs, one 18 years old, one 2 years old. There is a fenced area out the backdoor where they can use the bathroom, and we will pick up after the weekend. Both dogs go out first thing in the morning and after dinner, and again before bed (usually 9-10 pm). The younger dog benefits from a couple more trips throughout the day, but if you are away and she is put in her crate, she will wait until you return. Her max hold time is around 5 hours. She rings a bell to let you know she's gotta go!...
The older dog loves to take a gander around the cul-de-sac once a day, but this is not mandatory. The younger dog will walk, bike, run or chase toys in the yard at your bidding. But again, not mandatory.
They are fed in the morning between 7-9 am on your schedule, then again typically around 5 pm, but anytime between 4-7 pm is okay. So you'll have free reign with your days! The older dog takes melatonin pills in his food. Otherwise, there is no other medication to administer.
That's it! + More info
