My husband and I, along with our 5-year-old bulldog Lola, live in a rowhouse in Shaw. We are looking for a house/petsitter while we go travel for a friend's wedding. Our dog is low-energy but highly social so we'd feel better having someone stay with her while we are gone. She needs eyedrops but tolerates them really well. Our house is 3 stories, across from a playground, 2 blocks from the metro, and steps away from great restaurants and music venues.
We have a great view on our roofdeck, and we have access to a driveway, if you need it.
I'm more interested in having someone in the home than any sort of maintenance for it. Lola goes outside 3x/day, but only gets a short walk once. The rest of the time, she's content to hang out in a room with you.
