Sit local, or anywhere
You can keep it close to home, or you can use house sitting as a way to travel on a shoestring. It's all good, and it starts here.
Pet sitting & House sitting job in San Fransico Bay Area
San Fransico Bay Area - Sonoma
Home: Come spend 10 days in my beautiful home in the redwoods! Super private on 6 acres with gorgeous hiking trails nearby. A 15 minute drive to the coast/ocean, and a 3 minute drive to the Russian River. This is a 4 bedroom 2 bath house, 2300 square feet. Has fireplace and central heat, Lap pool.
Animal Care: I have 2 big wonderful dogs, Stella a 11 year old (healthy) who looks like a black golden retriever and Nanook an 8 year old husky lab mix. They are pretty low maintainence. The dogs hang out in the yard most of the day and are in at night. I have a great house pig( very small about 45 lbs), that hangs with the dogs mostly outside but usually comes in at night. I have 4 barn cats that get fed in the garage in the morning. I have about 20 chickens so you will have fresh eggs. I have some barn animals most are rescues. 7 goats, 3 alpacas and 5 juliana pigs (smallish-80 lbs) . The most important thing on my farm/barn animals is that they get put in the barn before dark. For me it is never a problem. When I've gone for a couple of days and had people help out most of the time this is not an issue. Sometimes there will be one goat that might not be cooperative but my house sitters have always been able to get them in. If you are 2 people you should be solid everytime.
