We are looking for a mature, outgoing couple to live in our separate, comfortable well-equipped guest house from August 1st 2016 to end of November 2016 We have 5 dogs and 6 chickens that have a routine are stress-free and very easy going. The dogs all live in an enclosed park like kennel. Mornings, the dogs are fed, kennel cleaned, change water bowls. Even though we have a few senior dogs, there are no medications to be administered. Chickens are let out and eggs collected, inside of coop raked. The older dogs love to go for a short walk each day, the younger ones love to go longer and are great companions if you enjoy to hike the trails that surround our ranch. Early evening the dogs are fed again and social time is spent with them. The tasks will vary according to the time of year you are here.
It is a great feeling to have reliable and trustworthy people to look after our animals and property; therefore we are not looking for short-term sitters, as we enjoy traveling several times throughout the year.
