Pet sitting & House sitting job in Southern California
Southern California - San Diego
LOCAL Looking for sitters from the local area
I am looking for a 20 day house/pet sitter: a reliable trusted dedicated person (1 person only, no couples! ) to house sit/pet sit and exercise and love my home for 20 days in January; someone who consistently does the items we agreed upon, extremely accountable, excellent communication skills, clean and excellent response time.
I have 4 amazing loving dogs, 3 athletic dogs that need work out and all need loving contact. I am looking for someone who works at home and is not leaving my house to work all day or even most days. My dogs do best when someone is at home and they do not feel abandoned. Of course you can go out, but not leaving them alone for longer than 4 hours.
Duties in exchange: Feed dogs once a day, exercise running, throwing ball at park, runs, walks and keep company with and play with dogs. Keep house and yard tidy, collect mail and take pics of impt stuff, daily updates send photos and video of dogs, take out trash for collection, water 6 indoor plants and a few outside new starter plants. I have 2 boas who need misting, temperature observation, clean their vivarium cage like you clean cat litter, change water once a week, feed every ten days.
In exchange for use of my beautiful home, a private bedroom and private bathroom. Hi speed wifi. I live in a beautiful home in a nice upper class community 4 miles from Torrey Pines State Beach & Del Mar Beach in San Diego, CA
Let us start with a phone chat. Please have up to date name references ready with phone numbers I can verify. We can do our an introduction/Q n A and a meet and greet. San Diego is a desirable destination and my home is lovely. I am looking for someone who understands I cannot get back til March and is 100% able to make the 6 month commitment, not matter...And of course an active person experience with long term stays and is active and athletic with dogs . They are well trained. I am choosing someone active so that you can chuck the ball to them at the park and/or take them on vigorous walks/hikes//runs or ball chucking at park daily. My love bugs and want someone who is both confident calm leadership and immense love and intuition/observational skills.
This is for ONE person. No exceptions. There is absolutely no visitors, friends, partners, family allowed in my home. All your socialization by sitter is conducted outside the home. This keeps my animals, my belongings and my home a quiet sanctuary and also Covid safe.
San Diego is famous for so many different beaches and dog beaches, 15-20 mins from most all that is magical in San Diego and 4 miles from the beach, I am 5 mins to Penasquitos Canyon Preserve with its river and waterfalls and lil lakes, countless hikes and biking along coast, Del Mar cliffs for meditation and yoga and sunsets, Torrey Pines Reserve for beach hiking, La Jolla cove preserve for snorkeling, swimming, surfing, bodysurfing, kayaking with the sweet leopard sharks (nice like nurse sharks and spotted!), playful seals and and all else the stunning San Diego has to offer.
Please prepare a list a verified list your house sitting/dog sitting references with their contact name and phone numbers .
I look forward to hearing from you!
