My wife and I are looking for a regular pet-sitter for 2-4 night stints while we are out of town, as we travel on a somewhat frequent (monthly) basis.
We have two friendly-but-energetic foxhounds (3 y/o and 2 y/o) and two cats. The dogs can be left alone for 4-5 hours at a time during the day, but we prefer to have someone here overnight while we're gone. The dogs can be a handful on-leash when other dogs that they do not know are around, so we are looking for someone with experience walking medium-size dogs with occasional leash reactivity issues.
Otherwise, the dogs have a fully fenced backyard, and love running around and chasing each other, toys, and whatever animals happen into the yard while they are out. They are typically lazy for much of the day, with spurts of energy before their morning walk and in the evening.
