Looking for just the right --solid, smart, dog-loving person. We need someone who can help us with our two new rescue dogs. Sometimes we just need you to come over for a while and doggie sit while we do errands, projects, shop etc. and for that we would pay by the hour. Sometimes we would like you to stay overnight, for up to a week, and take full time care of our dogs so we can go out of town so we would have to negotiate for a 24 hour live-in fee on those occasions. Often we just need you to stay for the weekend while we go out of town. You need to love dogs, be very responsible, and have a car you don't mind using to take our two dogs to dog-park. Ideally we are looking for somebody, a homebody, maybe somebody who works at home, is retired, or something like that, who can just stage his or her life out of our house. These a big dogs, though, so you can't be frail at all, and you can't have another job that would keep you away for very many hours. We have a nice house in Gainesville with a lap pool, HBO, Netfilx, Showtime, etc. and a fensed yard, so it is a pleasant place to live walking distance to the university - great for swimmers, readers, film buffs... but our dogs can't be left alone for more than a couple hours at a time. They are new, not very well trained yet, and get nervous if crated too long. They are young lab mixes. We take them to a dog park every day to wear them out, so that would become your job sometimes. It first we would just have you go to the dog park with us and see how we do everything and get to know the dog care rituals, house and dogs, for which we would pay you hourly. Anybody out there looking for that kind of work? situation? We can pay you fairly Must have local references.
