Pet sit at a country retreat
Hello! We are Teri and Jay Groth and have two teenage sons, Alex and Jacob. Our pets are part of our family and as such we want them well taken care of when we are out of town. Our dogs, Finley and Poncho are fun loving and active. They love to play in the yard and enjoy walks in the park which is right at the end of our driveway. Our cat Dennis is a little shy with new people but will eventually come around. We also have a 10 year old Gecko that is very low maintenance and does not require expereince with reptiles. My husband Jay is a Director of Operations at a Chemical company and I am a photographer. Our home is at the end of a dead end road on 4 acres and it is a very peaceful place. We are a laid back family and are looking for someone to come hang out at our home, have fun with our dogs and just relax.
Our Home & Location
We have a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath 2 story home in a rural setting on 4 acres. We are located in Hartland, Wisconsin which is approximately 35 minutes west of downtown Milwaukee. Our outdoor space is vast and includes several patios, a fire pit, 2 hammocks, a trampoline and quick access into the Lisbon Community park which is at the end of our driveway. The refrigerator, freezer and pantry is yours to use during your stay and you may help yourself to anything. All of the bedrooms are located on the second floor and the guestroom is at the end of the hall. We have cable TV, Apple tv, and Netflix. Downstains in the basement you'll find two TV's and 2 Xbox's.
Responsibilities & Pets
Your responsibilies during your stay will really be all about the pets. The dogs are fed twice daily and are use to a lot of outside time as well as play time and walks. The cat is free fed dry food and eats one small can at dinner time. Litter box should be scooped once a day. If your stay is longer than 2-3 days, the gecko will need to be fed live crickets (which will be housed in a container next to his aquarium) If it is a short stay, his lights will need to be turned on and off at bedtime and in the morning and that's it. We want you to make yourself at home and relax.
