Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • A dog
Our dog Itchy is a Akita/ Husky mix that loves to go hiking and for walks. He is a big boy at 85 pounds. We our looking for a sitter that can handle a big dominate dog that needs daily walks for a minimum of 1 hour. He was a street dog that showed up one day and never left. He now enjoys sleeping on the couch with a pillow and cuddling in bed in the mornings.
Also the outdoor plants need watering.
As our house is located on the grounds of a Hacienda there are many services provided such as; daily maid service, a gardener, fire wood delivery to the front porch, access to the Hacienda grounds such as, the library, sitting areas and the fabulous organic garden ( you can get your fill of organic veggies).
We basically need someone to walk Itchy and water the plants.
