For 2-1/2 weeks | Short Term

Hi there! We are looking for a non-smoking single or couple to care for our 2 dogs in our central Calgary home for weeks at the end of the summer, Aug 20-Sept 7, 2019. Earlier arrival and later departures can be accommodated as well.

We prefer someone who can think on their feet and is adept at managing dogs, particularly someone familiar with dog behaviour and comfortable with active dogs.

We have 2 medium-sized mixed breeds, male and female, who get along well with each other. They are older (9 & 10 years old) but they are still very active and seem more like 5-year-olds. They love people and are pretty easy-going, each with a different personality - one very outgoing and the other more reserved (at first). We are looking for petsitters who would take them on once-a-day leashed walks in our neighbourhood (no off-leash) and spend some time at home with them (daytime or evening). Feeding is once a day in the morning, consisting of a whole food/raw meat diet, so petsitters must be okay with that. We have a fenced backyard and if the weather is not too hot they love to spend time outside when you are home. They stay inside when no one is home. They are not friendly with other dogs and cannot go to off-leash parks.

Our house is a renovated bungalow (2bd, 2bth) on a quiet street with a private treed and fenced yard. We are near downtown (20 mins by train/bus/bike/car), as well as the zoo and science centre (10 min train, 15 min bike, 30 min walk). Train is accessed by a 5-minute walk from our house. Bicycle(s) are available to use, and there is an extensive bike path system near to our house. A large grocery store is a 5-minute walk from our house as well, as are a number of inexpensive ethnic restaurants and shops.

We have wifi and computer access but no cable TV. There is a TV and DVD with many (older) movies available to watch. You can also stream live movies for free through our library system.

We appreciate that you took the time to read through, and look forward to hearing from you!
