Hi! I would like to know if anyone has a good contact for a house sitter/ housekeeper. We will be traveling for 3 weeks and need someone to watch over the house and take care of our dogs. Thanks!

Do you want the person to stay in the house at night or just come in daily to take care of the dogs?

We would prefer if the person stays in the house at night. But as long as they keep an eye on the dogs, feed them and walk them twice a day, it can be negotiated.

We need it for 2 weeks in September. We also travel a lot so if we like the person, and the person feels comfortable with our dogs, we will probably hire them every time we have to leave.

Ok, so which is it ... first you said 3 weeks, now you say 2 weeks.
Ask in this forum and remember to say where and when and if you prefer live in or daily visits.

Would you like to recommend someone?

We are looking for a personal recommendation.

Sorry, don't know of anyone personally. I think your best bet would be to ask one of your neighbours to come in daily.

I would post on the Housekeepers and Drivers group on FB and see if anyone can recommend someone. Where do you live?

Hi Weslie Vivian,
Sorry that you had to experience what you did. A situation like your own is typically a midlife crisis. The spouse snaps, changes & hates his partner (as their childhood demons have caught up with them & their is no one else to blame).

It is highly likey that your husband was shunned by the woman & returned to what he HAD (Aka 'crumbing' - knowing the spouse is there in case things go sour on the outside). Or some sort of transaction/ plan may have occured, as there are a lot of fraudulent events these days.

For those with marital problems like this, please note that the internet has a lot of resources for anyone who experiences a 'radical' change re: their partner. Most likely a mid life crisis.

Search for : midlife crisis, emotional distance ... that sort of thing.
Also search for credentials for any therapist or doctor, including Dr bolingo.

Again Weslie Vivian, I am sorry that you had to endur eth eexperience you did. However, this thread is reserved for house sitting & related issue though, not canvassing for Dr bolingo.

Happy to hear that all is well for you again. Have a good day.

Hi Ledapq, was going through this site and saw your post. I am a local university student who run a small dog walking business and I provide most of the services you have requested for your dogs except overnighting. so if you ever want someone to watch over the dogs again, please feel free to contact me at

I know an American lady, June, who is married to a Trini and has been there for 20 years or something, and she works for Sunnyview Vet in Diego, and also runs a Facebook rescue group (or maybe two) and has dog sat for two of my friends and uses the money to support the animal rescue group to have the dogs cleaned up, spayed and neutered and vaccinations. Her number is 682-4745.
