About this assignment

Looking for a responsible, kind person who can take short leisurely walks with two older dogs and give them attention periodically throughout the day. Baguette and Jezebelle also have a fenced in yard and need a person to open the door to let them out, and back in. My dogs live in the house, not the yard.Finally, they need feeding twice daily.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Feed and walk the dogs, give pills such as glucosamine, lightly brush dogs, give them attention periodically throughout the day. Clean up after self take their trash to nearby dump before they leave, and it would be super if they would blow leaves from the lawn into the woods during their stay.

What are the good features of the property and location

Cape house on cul de sac in quiet neighborhood. Area has hiking, biking and historic sites galore. Homeowner can come home one or two weekends if sitter wants to explore further, plenty to do in western VA or Washington 4 hours away by car or train. Lynchburg is a small city but there is a growing restaurant and cultural scene. House is two miles away from Thomas Jefferson's retreat and a craft brewery. Appalachian Trail, Appomattox, Peaks of Otter, National D-Day Memorial and other cool spots are short drive away.

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

A car is required. Necessities such as groceries are a 5-minute drive. The house is in Bedford County adjoining the city of Lynchburg. It is a beautiful and relaxing area. One bedroom with a full-sized sleeper sofa and foam topper is offered, so this is suitable for a single person or couple. Homeowner can return one or two days before Thanksgiving if sitter wishes to leave for the holiday. Best if sitter arrives day before I leave; I leave Nov. 4.
