I am looking for a responsible house sitter who can love on and keep my two dogs company while I'm away! Someone who is good at communicating, and who can send a little update with a picture every couple of days
Responsibilities would be keeping the place tidy and minding my two dogs. These activities would include feeding and walking, accompanied by lots of pets and play time.
My apartment is conveniently located downtown Seattle. It's near the Frye museum, which is free and beginning to accept socially distanced viewing. A few various coffee shops/restaurants are also scattered around within easy walking distance. Fantastic hiking spots are only an hour drive as well. I am available to give suggestions based on your interests!
The primary consideration would be taking care of my two dogs. They are well behaved and incredibly loving! My smaller dog Winston does have a bit of a Napoleon complex and can sometimes bark at other dogs on walks, so preference would go to someone with a bit of previous experience with pets/dogs. My apartment is a small studio, so may not work great for larger families. I would also mention that my apartment is located within a few blocks of a hospital and also some normal city construction so being used to some typical city sounds should be considered before staying; however, the walls are very well insulated and I have never been woken up or bothered by the noise before :)
Anna was down to earth and very friendly. Communication was easy and stress free and she was quick to reply. I enjoyed my time at her place. Winston and Maya are adorable and well behaved. I miss them already. I would happily recommend Anna as a house sitting host.
Anna was very easy to communicate with, very helpful, clear and responsive from introduction to present time. Maya and Winslow are very well behaved and pleasant personalities to work with/for. ???? I look forward to future opportunities to work with them all.
Gregor and I tremendously enjoyed Winston and Maya. Such well behaved, loving dogs, it was a real treat to spent time with them. We also enjoyed working from her apartment and exploring Seattle on the electric rental bikes which are just a few feet away from the apartment. Anna's apartment has a beautiful view over the Puget sound. You will hear relaxing waves and ocean sounds while watching stunning sunsets. If you are lucky, you might see seals playing around the rocks at low tide. It is easy to communicate with Anna, and Winston and Maya are great dogs, so highly recommended!
Anna's apartment and dogs get my fondest recommendation. Winston is a tiny ball of snuggly happiness, who will kiss you frantically if you catch his attention. Maya is an athletic goddess who will catch epic air every time you launch her frisbee or ball. Both dogs are very well trained and they like their long walks along the beach roads multiple times a day. They glow when you give them attention and are extremely disciplined: I almost never needed to tell either one "No" but when I did, they listened immediately. Maya knows the walk routes perfectly; don't be surprised when she leads you to the canister of dog treats left out by neighborhood folks. They are such easy dogs to care for that the entire stay was a pleasure. Alki/West Seattle is something to experience. The sound of the water outside the door is constantly present and grounding, and the apartment is right on the water--sunsets are life-changing here. The neighborhood is a safe, rustic beach community. You can walk to casual dining locations and public beach areas, and you're a close drive or bus ride from the Junction neighborhood with shopping and one of Seattle's best Sunday farmer's markets. People are friendly; dog walking is a social endeavor and everyone says hello and wants to pet the dogs. Anna's apartment was in perfect, clean condition when I arrived and had everything I needed as a sitter. It is sweet, safe, and cozy, and I enjoyed being there. Anna left me a great set of instructions and was quick to reply whenever I got in touch. Highest recommendation!
