About this assignment

Must really like dogs...I have 11 dogs ,,all well behaved and socialized. Plus 10 cats.
Must have experience, beyond just being a pet owner.'The dates posted are approximate
PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PROFILE.

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, 6 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 near by mountains.
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

This sit is about coming into their home, adhering to their schedule. Especial at feeding time, and crating time for the night. Only some are crated but all have their sleeping pallet. This is their sanctuary. The cats are pretty self sufficient just need to be fed. The are in/outdoor cats. No litter box.
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 travel dates late May to late June 2023, also a November month long sit 2023.
Compostela is a very small community in the mountains outside of Tepic(capitol of Nayarit),
I would prefer no children,,a couple would be fine.

Beautiful Mexican countryside close to the lovely town of,Compostela

Sandra, was a wonderful host, an awesome chef,And spent numerous days with me to make sure I was familiar with the routine, and that I was comfortable with the pets and that they were happy and at home with me!! It was a lovely and comfortable home and yard with the beautiful small town of, Compostela For shopping and restaurants just a 10 to 15 minute walk away. Sandra was always available to answer my , questions And to receive updates… She is very clear and direct, and communicates clearly and was very helpful!! Thanks for some wonderful memories and I miss each and everyone of the dogs. The cats were cool in their own right as the pack included, a Beautiful Manx and a number of other feline characters and I definitely became attached to all the animals and I miss them. The sit, definitely kept me on my toes and kept me hopping. Thanks Sandra George

Great Experience

We truly enjoyed sitting for Sandra’s dogs and cats. We fell in love with all of them. They are friendly and follow the daily routine well. They sleep a lot and we had lots of fun playing with them, brushing them and giving lots of pets and scratches behind the ears. They range from small to large and get along well. They all loved chilling to Abba! The house and yard are set up to accommodate them and is very spacious and functional. We loved the private setting and the view of the town, especially at sunset/night time. The location was ideal as we could easily walk into town for the best fresh fruit and vegetables. Sandra was great to introduce us to her local mercado merchants, show us the town and introduce us to her veterinary and his delightful family. The town is quaint with a lovely central town square and beautiful old church. The residents are very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our first sit! We miss the dogs and cats. It was an experience we’ll always cherish!

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.
