I would prefer someone of an older age who has had experience with newborns/infants. This is my first child so I'd like someone to come to my house. There is a dog at home. She's a 1-year-old beagle mix who is very friendly, good with baby and people but will need to be watched around the baby. She doesn't have to be walked, she can be let out in the backyard throughout the day. She is attached to a leash in the backyard because there is no gated fence. I do not require any additional work at all besides being very attentive to baby. She is good but often stays awake most of the afternoon and I prefer her to not just sit in a bouncer or swing all day due to her head. The days & hours that I need 100% commitment to are Mondays (10-6pm), Tuesdays (10-6pm), and Wednesdays (10-6pm). I may be able to offer more in near future.
