About this assignment

I am looking for a couple who have experience with a dog and cat. Additionally, they would need to have basic understanding of managing a home that all but runs itself. The dog, Danny Boy, is a Border Collie who needs normal care and walking in the neighborhood. The cat, Cinder, is a Maine Coon who only needs the most basic of care since she is an indoor/outdoor cat. Both animals can be inside or outside during the night.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

House sitters responsibilities include feeding the dog and cat (2X Day). The dog must also be walked or run at least 1X Day. Mail must be brought in and garbage must be put out.

What are the good features of the property and location

The house is basically brand new and very easy to take care of. There is WI-FI in the house and cable TV on each of two TVs. There is a front and rear porch to sit on and relax. Sitters may use of one of my vehicles during their stay in my home.

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

Sitters need to consider that my home is next to a Greenway, which if full of wild deer and feral hogs. My dog will chase after them if the backyard gates are left open.

Texas Hospitality and Fur Baby Love

Kevin and Mimi are excellently mindful, very hospitable, and accommodating. They will make you feel like you’re family in a warm welcoming way. Their home is very inviting, and very low-maintenance, in a peacefully, enjoyable, neighborly friendly community. Danny Boy, and Cinder are some of the most loveable furry babies in the area. Danny Boy is jovial, loveable, affectionate, and enjoys his walks, and you will too. It's so adorable to see the love Cinder & Danny Boy give each other. Cinder loves to be petted and rubbed when she wants your affections and will cuddle up with you and purr at night in bed. I look forward to future endeavors with this family, indeed.

Lovely Mountain Retreat

My husband and I fully enjoyed our opportunity to house/pet sit for the Asher's in their cabin just outside Boone, NC over the Thanksgiving holiday. It was a wonderful getaway for us! The Ashers met with us in advance of the assignment and gave us a tour of the property and opportunity to meet their pets. Danny Boy, their affectionate Border Collie is an absolute sweetheart and loves lots of petting and attention. Cinder (their cat) was very partial to my husband and spent lots of time on his lap as they watched Thanksgiving weekend footbal games together. The lovely college town is only a short 10 minute drive away with absolutely everything we could ever need or want over the course of our stay. Kevin gave great verbal instructions and the only thing that might have made it any better would be to also provide it in writing to refer to as needed. We kept in contact with each other without being intrusive or overbearing. The Ashers were very welcoming and accomodating and it was a great first experience!

Woodland Sanctuary

This is a blissful assignment for anyone seeking a mix of solitude and nearby modern conveniences. The owners are affable, easy to get a long with, justly proud of this woodland home but selfless with it - I had the option of extending my stay beyond the actual assignment. The cat is a really fun character and Danny Boy a heart-breaker. There's plenty to do in the area during the sitter's downtime but for me, the cabin was a destination in itself - and yes - the hot tub's addictive. There was an option to use one of their vehicles which I did when taking the dog out for exercise. This is one of my favourite assignments to date and heartily recommend these good people to any future sitter.
