    My name is Geraldine, I am a therapist and travel frequently. My kids are all studying abroad so when I travel my dogs need petsitting. Walking three times a day. On the plus side, I live in front of the beach in Carcavelos. train takes 20 minutes to Lisbon center for all the tourism attractions.

    Some dates are cat sitting and walking my old 15 year old dog, Jack - he wears a diaper. It's a 5 minutes walk 2 times a day. He is almost blind so a bit confused. You would have to change his diaper. During the week, a lady comes in the morning to clean after him if needed. Cats need just a human there to pet them, clean their box.

    Other dates it's the 3 dogs. The dogs have to be walked, Joy is an Aussie and needs her workout! Sherlock is a Boston terrier and also loves the exercise. You can make them run on the beach or the nearby woods. They also crave human attention. It's important to take them out 3 times a day because they usually travel with me and they're not used to simply be at home the whole day and doing nothing.

    Sherlock barks at cars and bicycles and is a bit crazy, but very cuddly. Joy is very obedient, except when there are balls at the beach - people playing volley ball. She will be unresponsive and staying near the ball until you fetch her. Otherwise she's ok.

    It it's summer, you can water the plants.

    You can use the food I have at home, hamburgers in the freezer, rice, pasta, cans, etc.

    There is a university nearby, lots of young people and surf people around. If you like the beach this is a good choice. dogs love it too... You can travel easily to Lisbon or Cascais by train, about 40 minutes away. I have bikes in the garage also.

    So you would have to walk Sherlock, 2 year old Boston terrier, very cuddly, and Joy, female blue Merle Aussie, 1 year and a half, 3 times a day. Feed them and make them company. I also have 2 cats upstairs, just feed and pet them from time to time. It is important that you truly love dogs as these two love human company.
    My old dog Jack is always there, because as he is almost blind I can't take him to my work because he would get lost. Wears a diaper.
    No parties, however.
    If it doesn't rain, I would appreciate it if you can water the plants.
    I expect you to vacuum the living room because of the sand brought back from the beach and dog hair... Sherlock gets crazy with the vacuum cleaner, you just have to put him in a room.
