We are in need of a mature person or couple to watch our home and dog for 1 week to 3 months as needed. To begin with, we will need a dog/house sitter for the last week of September.
The dog needs little attention - mostly being petted from time to time, being fed (once a day) and watered more than once, and being allowed to roam in the back yard weather-permitting.
We want to return to a home that looks as clean and neat as we left it. That shouldn't be too hard.
We are asking for pet care in exchange for a home (rental fee).
If the dog needs any special attention, we would ask to be notified before action is taken. We will come to a mutual decision.
The Shindo is very warm and loyal towards the people she knows. She must be introduced to new people.
We live10 minutes from downtown Cleveland - a cultural center of Ohio.
There are Broadway musicals, world renown orchestral concerts, and several enormous museums all within 1/2 hour drive.
Cleveland has some of the best medical facilities in the United States.
We have a network of urban parks good for hiking, camping and sledding. Skiing is close and the facilities are remarkable.
Our neighborhood is relatively quiet and is well-policed.
If you are contracted for this assignment and then must cancel your offer, please be kind enough to give us ample time to find a replacement since we, too, might need to make cancellations to our agenda.
