About this assignment

Must really like dogs...I have 16 rescue ,,all well behaved and socialized. Plus 9 cats. I have a Facebook page,,,"Church of the Dog Rescue Hacienda"
Must have experience, beyond just being a pet owner.'The dates posted are approximate

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

feeding and caring for animals and house/ garden. This sit can be overwhelming,,,may sound like a lot of animals but they are very regimented, feeding 1 time in the a,m, a snack at 5 p.m. or so..I hand feed by name that makes it more special for them..and you get to know the dogs. They respond when their name is called.
Also requires some grooming. A few of the dogs need to be brushed, bathed when needed. Crate bedding needs to be laundered at least weekly.

What are the good features of the property and location

private, secure, two blocks from plaza, a completely restored adobe house (150years,)
2 bdr. 1.5 bathrooms. small well developed garden..low maintenance great view from the terrace of the volcano.
Also willing to host beyond sit, if the sitter/sitters are interested in the area.

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

9 cats!!! I do dog rescue (16), and try to get them adopted.
This is basically being on the property with the dogs....they get into mischief if left alone to much.. So Ideal for a writer, artist, or someone who self entertains.
I have not made definite travel dates I am flexible.
Santa Maria del Oro is a very small community in the mountains outside of Tepic(capitol of Nayarit), not much to do outside of the home. .
I would prefer no children,,a couple would be fine.

Great Communication + A New Home

Our experience sitting for Sandra was truly second-to-none. From our preparations before arriving, to during the sit, our communication was great. Sandra made sure to put a lot of things in place (utilities, supplies, etc.) before she left, so that we never had a problem, and were able to focus on what truly mattered: our new canine and feline friends! The town was charming, and we were never short of a friendly face willing to help (even with a language barrier). My partner and I would definitely love to sit for Sandra again.

Wonderful animals, huose and garden

I've sat for a Sandra several times from 2 weeks to 6 weeks at a time. I adored the dogs and cats, and loved the easy care garden, watering most days. It's close to the centre if town which has everything one needs along with a great little weekly vege market. Large Walmart about 3040 mins away by local taxi bus, although as The owner advises, the dogs do need supervision and can't be left alone for very long. Overall I loved sitting for Sandra and her gorgeous animals.

Sandra Katzman - Church Of The Dog Rescue Hacienda

Hello. Our names are James and Ely. We have house sat for Sandra twice now which I think says a lot. First time was for 6 weeks and second was for 2 weeks. At the rescue there is approximately 16 dogs and 12 cats. The cats are very easy to take care of as they come and go as they please. The dogs have two feeding times at 7am and 5pm. There is no walking involved with the dogs as they are let out the front gate for a run around before the first feeding (don't worry they all come back lol). Santa Maria is a nice little Mexican town with a crater lake nearby. We felt safe here always.
