We are looking for a trustworthy, pet-loving person or couple to care for our dog Nanny, and cat, lulu from December 24th, 2015 until December 28th, 2015.
Lulu is a snugglebug who is pretty low maintenance - just need to scoop out a litter box and open a can of food for her every day. And give her plenty of pats.
Nanny is a great guy, however, he is a high needs dog - in that he is a very young herding dog (an australian shepherd). As a high energy puppy, he will require a bit more of your time and needs to go out for at least two walks a day (we take him for a jog every morning and then a long afternoon walk or visit to the off leash park). If he doesn't get enough exercise, he just races around the house, so we're looking for house sitters who would be interested in taking good long walks with him on the nearby beaches and University endowment lands. He's great with kids and other dogs, loves snuggles and pats, but also needs house sitters who are firm with him and will set boundaries (i.e. no jumping up, no stealing food). He thrives with structure and exercise.
We have a lovely 3 bedroom house in Kitsilano, Vancouver, close to shops, restaurants, the beach, and transit.
