About this assignment

We are looking for an individual or couple to come stay with our two dogs, Scout and Boo, from December 22 to December 28.

Sitters should be responsible, clean, communicative, caring, and considerate. Boo is looking for someone to cuddle with. Scout, for someone who will scratch or pat her butt. :)

Experience with mark / click training a plus!

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Responsibilities include feeding them a raw meat / veggie diet (we will have this pre-prepared), walking, and general love and care for our pups.

Other than that, we need someone to bring in the mail, take the trash and recycling out for pick-up, to do some house up-keep, and water our indoor plants if they look a bit thirsty.

What are the good features of the property and location

We live in one of the most outdoor accessible locations in the USA, with city amenities. Chattanooga has a lot to offer—great food, drinks, hiking, kayaking / canoeing / paddle boarding, golfing, tubing, mountain biking, rock climbing, an aquarium, and art museum, etc. We get some light dustings of snow in the winter, and the view from our back deck is really beautiful.

Our home is in a safe neighborhood, the North Shore, that is about 1/2 mile to downtown Chattanooga. We live in a 2/2 with a home office and a finished basement. We have a fenced in backyard that the dogs can hang out in as well as a huge 2nd story deck with a hammock and a view of the far ridge.

You will have access to our car and we will leave you some groceries to get you started (whatever you prefer!). We also have an Amazon Echo and an Amazon Fire TV Stick that you can use.

The city of Chattanooga also has the gig which means we have one of the fastest internet speeds in the country. You will have access to it in our home!

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

Boo is very friendly but can be skittish around little kids, so you wouldn't want to leave him alone with a small child who might grab him / at him. Prodding, slapping, and squeezing don't bode well with him.

We have used Mind My House several times and have had the good and the bad—to be a good fit for us, all you have to do is to love our dogs and leave the house as it was left for you!

We want you to have a fun time in Chattanooga while you're here! It's a great city that we have fallen in love with and we think you will love it too!

Sweet dogs and a charming home in the hippest part of Nashville

I stayed with Scout and Boo for about ten days while their owners were traveling. The dogs are well mannered and easy to care for. The home is charmingly appointed and cosy. The neighborhood is hopping! I loved this housesit!

Chattanooga house sit

I thoroughly enjoyed my 8 day stay in Chattanooga at the home of Spenser and Zach. They are a great couple and I would highly recommend them and their home if you are interested in a stay in beautiful Chattanooga. I found their home to be very tidy, super clean and conveniently located to the downtown sites of interest. The two dogs, Boo and Scout, are adorable, well behaved, and low maintenance. There is a great deck on the back of the house for relaxing in the hammock, fire pit or enjoying the view. The sites of the downtown and river walks are only a half mile away, but it is a steep walk back to the house. I had my car with me so I chose to drive into town and walked miles from there. Great bike paths along the river too. Great hosts! Everything was spelled out clearly by Zach and Spenser and I had a wonderful mini-vaca in a funky town. I would do this all over again!
