We need a mature and responsible pet/house sitter (single or couple) who takes care of our two dogs and looks after the house and property.
We have a Border Collie and a Border Collie Mix, 5 and 10 years old, very friendly. They are outside/partly inside dogs, but need to be brought into the garage for the night. No walking required as they have lots of room to run on the property. However, they need daily playtimes with you on the property and are grateful for any extra attention they can get ... they love playing throw-and-fetch.
Our home is a newer 2 storey house with a guest suite in the basement and sits on half an acre in a quiet neighbourhood in Mill Bay. Supermarket, shops, restaurants and all you need for daily life is within walking distance. To further explore the region, you would need your own transportation.
Taking care of the dogs is the main priority. We don’t expect you to stay home with the dogs 100% of the time, but they need to get playtimes with you at least twice a day and they need to be in the garage when it’s dark and you’re not at home. Also, you must be comfortable handling raw food.
Internet, Apple TV and Netflix provided, but no other TV channels. Not suited for children. Not suitable to bring your own pets. Non-smokers only please, absolutely no smoking on premises. Experience with dogs and references required.
We will be away from November 25th to December 12th and would like you to arrive Nov 23rd to leave enough time to get you settled in and get familiar with the dogs and the tasks at hand.
