2 affectionate greyhounds in small walkable town near Shenandoah NP
I am a single mom with two affectionate retired racing greyhounds, George and Gracie. I live in a spacious and comfortable single family home in Winchester, VA, about 1/2 hour from Shenandoah National Park and about 1 1/2 hours from Washington DC. I have a large fenced yard. Winchester is a historic town and I live a ten minute walk from the downtown which has shops and restaurants. I travel for work and would like to find a couple of housesitters that would be available for a week at a time.
Our Home & Location
My house is a comfortable size. We have wi-fi. I have a nice deck and patio area with bbq for outdoor dining. There are parks and public lands nearby to walk the dogs, although the neighborhood streets are nice and I usually just walk around the neighborhood. Shenandoah National Park is only 1/2 hour away. There are several theaters nearby. Washington DC is close enough for a day trip but you would need to arrange for someone to come in midday to let the dogs out. Please note that although I have Amazon Prime, Netflix, CBS All Access, PBS, and NBC, I DO NOT have a cable TV subscription.
Responsibilities & Pets
I need someone to feed my two greyhounds twice a day and take them on at least two 15-30 minute walks every day. They can also be let out in the fenced back yard. Please make sure they are not left alone for longer than 5 hours. Please keep the house tidy as needed. If possible (not a requirement), please brush the dogs' teeth every day (I'll show you, they are used to it, takes only 5 minutes).
