Hi. We are Tami and Tony, a newly married cpl from Heber City, Utah, USA. We are nestled in the Wasatch mountain range just northwest of Salt Lake City, in northern Utah. Our mountain scenery is breathtaking and a big reason why we moved here from the Chicagoland area. We are at 5,600 ft above sea level where the air is clean, no bugs or humidity and virtually zero crime in our small mountain valley. The winters are just as gorgeous as the summers. We have a 2 bedroom condo with our 2 dogs. A yellow lab named Murdock who is 6 and a beagle/sharpe mix named Katy who is a feisty 10 yrs. old. I’m a retired Navy veteran at home and Tony is in the ski industry at resorts nearby. We usually take the dogs with us camping but lately would like to travel within the states and leave the dogs at home with a THS. (I made a profile previously but deleted it by mistake in trying to edit it.) Looking forward to learning how all this works and reading everyone’s experiences.
Hello again @Utahpups … glad you found your way to the introduction category and welcome to the community. And… big congrats on your marriage!! I can just imagine the beauty of where you live… have missed not being able to get back over to the States since the pandemic started. And just look at the faces on those two pups!! You’ll have no problem finding sitters I’m sure!!
This is a really friendly helpful forum where our global members will give you lots of support as you discover how everything works, but if you ever get stuck don’t hesitate to direct message the forum team or membership services. We are all here to help you on your journey! All the best, Vanessa
Welcome @Utahpups! Pardon me but your dogs are gorgeous! Utah is a beautiful state in many many ways!
I am sure you will have some wonderful experiences here.
@Utahpups that sounds like a great home base and dogs look chilled out (until somebody said ‘walk?’ or perhaps ‘dinner time!’) You will have no trouble finding sitters from what you describe…lots of good photos of dogs, house, surrounds and a strong profile that you dont delete will swing it! All the best
Welcome Tami and Tony! Before we started our digital nomad, full time sitter life we lived in Boise, Idaho and traveled a few times to Salt Lake City by car to see family. The drive was always beautiful and while we never were lucky enough to spend time in Heber City, we can only imagine that it’s wonderful town.
Enjoy the forum, we hope you find wonderful sitters to care for Murdock and Katy (they’re adorable!).
Hello Tami and Tony and welcome
Utah is very beautiful.
Hello Tami and Tony, welcome to the wonderful TrustedHouseSitters community! We love your part of the world; we spent one wonderful month pet and house sitting in Heber City from January to February 2021 with gorgeous views of snow capped Mt. Timpanogos! Would love to come back and look after your adorable Murdock and Katy between January and March 2022.
Hi, Tami & Tony! I’m also from the Chicagoland area and waiting patiently for my first visit to Utah! I look forward to applying to your future sits
Welcome back to our forum conversations @Rebecca.62 it’s been a while, thank you for joining us again.
Hi Tami and Tony
You picked a great place to live.
I did a THS sit in Highland, Utah and got the chance to be in your area and also Park City.
I live in Hurricane, Utah.
