A beautiful apartment, just outside of D.C.!
Hello! My name is Shannon and I am new to Trusted Housesitters. I graduated from Penn State University in 2017 and moved to Northern Virginia for work. I'm originally from New Jersey and that is where I rescued Indie in 2016. She is an Australian Cattle Dog and Labrador Retriever mix, making her a very active breed. In my free time, I like to take her to the dog park or go on a long walk. Also, I care for dogs on the weekend, as Indie loves a play buddy. I do not travel very often, but when I do, I want to make sure my puppy is in good hands. I can't wait to use this incredible service!
Our Home & Location
The apartment is a one-bedroom located in Falls Church, North Virginia. My community features garden-style, pet-friendly apartments, with a pool and gym right outside my door. Just a 10 minute walk away, I have a Giant Grocery, CVS, PNC, McDonald's, and more. With Washington D.C. only 11 miles away, it is easy to access the attractions via Car or Metro. The closest Metro station is the Dunn Loring-Merrifield Station, only 3 miles away. My suggestion is to have a vehicle for easier transport around the D.C., Virginia, and Maryland area.
Responsibilities & Pets
When staying in my apartment, your sole responsibility is to care for Indie. I do not have any other responsibilities required of you. Indie likes to be outside and walked once every 3-4 hours. She eats a can of wet food in the morning, and kibble at night. Indie loves attention, and she will let you know that! The longest I will leave her in the apartment alone is about 5 hours. In the summer months, I keep the AC and lights on for her at all times, and I would expect you to do the same. Other than that, I request that the apartment is kept tidy and clean.
