We are looking for a responsible, caring individual or couple to care for our dog and home this winter.
We have a 3 bedroom house in beautiful Brentwood Bay, about a 25 minute drive from downtown Victoria. We're a 10 minute stroll from the beach in a safe, friendly neighbourhood. We're walking distance to all amenities and transit links to Victoria. We're also a short drive from hiking trails, wineries, and walking distance to the world famous Butchart Gardens.
Our dog is a large (70 lb), very friendly, active four-year-old mixed breed. He needs at least one good walk a day, preferably two, and some play time in the yard (he loves to run but does not like dog parks). He will happily settle in the house if he's been out. He's OK at home on his own for a few hours but we prefer that he's not left alone for extended periods of time.
We'd appreciate it if you could also water the houseplants and pick up the mail.
Non-smokers only please and, sorry, no pets. References and police check required. I look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you may have.
