Lots of pets - 3 dogs, 2 cats...
Myself and my husband are empty nesters. We used to use our kids and our friends to help out with the pets when we were out of town, but those options are no longer available. We usually travel with our dogs, so many times it's just the cats that need watching (which can really be accomplished without stay-in help), but we have a couple of trips out of the country in 2019 that will require all the pets to stay home, hence needing a full-time house/petsitter.
Our Home & Location
We live in "suburbia" - we are very close to shopping, grocery stores, movie theater, restaurants, etc. - some of this stuff is in walking distance (1/3 mile). However, our neighborhood is very quiet - it's kinda unknown to any but those who live here. There's a people and dog park just past our backyard. The house is large, and has just about anything you need to be comfortable. The yard is mid-sized (the house sits on about 1/2 acre), and the dogs are contained via an invisible fence.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have 2 cats - Bart is very low-maintenance - they have no health issues and requires very little beyond some love and attention. Josh is on a three times-daily eyedrop lifelong, but otherwise doesn't require much either.
The dogs are spoiled rotten. They are pretty well behaved, but obviously much catered to. They are invisible-fence trained, and tend to go in and out pretty often. They don't need much exercise (Luna can't go more than a couple of miles anyway), so walking is not an issue. Maggie and Luna have medications/supplements they take morning and evening, and their meals are somewhat complicated and specific, but they do not change much day-to-day, so once you get the hang of it, you'll be fine. They are used to going out in the morning between 5:30 and 7 a.m., they are in and out during the day (weather depending), and their last outing of the day is at 9:30 p.m. They are definitely used to a lot of attention, but they are also fine if you need to get out of the house for a few hours - they do not have separation anxiety.
